      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Wahl Metro Tourney (disgusted)

Recommended Posts

So I was all pumped up to fish the Metro tourney this Oct 3 then I look on the calender, DUCK OPENER..??? Who the heck schedules a muskie tournament the day of duck opener in MN. Now I have tough decisions to make.

Ahhhhhhhhh....(slowly raising his hand in the back of the class)

That would be me. We had 3 main issues with hosting this event.

1. If we wanted to guarentee Tonka we had to have it in October.

2. Turnover in the metro starts around the 2nd week in October and ends in the beginning of Nov (typically).

3. The weekend that doesn't conflict with either 1 or 2 is duck opener.

Duck opener lost frown

Trust me, you are not the first person to bludgeon me over this one and won't be the last I'm sure.

BTW, it's Wahl not Walsh wink

Hey Shawn,

Here's a "thumbs up" for the date..... Full moon weekend, water temps dropping nicely, and decent weather... knock on wood!

Lot easier to release a muskie than come home and clean ducks, boats & trucks & waders, rinse off decoys, dog, etc.

Just gotta clarify those "witness" rules a bit ahead of time! wink

Well it's alright, I knew that Tonka coudn't be on the list unless it was this late. I just don't know what to do now.

By the way cjac brought up a point that I was wondering about. So for this tourney the way I read the rules is that you do not need a source outside of your boat to witness a measurement? Is this correct.

Correct on the rules. You just need to have the tournament marker in the pic of you holding the fish like the Frank tournament. That way you're not handling the fish any longer then you normally would with any other CPR.
