      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 .

Has this happened to anyone else?

I know many muskies are caught multiples times in their lives, even multiple times within a year. I'm just curious about whether or not anyone on this forum has caught a fish, then re-caught that fish later.

This fish has seen my boat twice now, and I thought it was pretty interesting. Both times she hit boatside.

and i'm much happier than I look, just bad timing.

Gotta love catch and release.

That shirt is just kept in the storage box and put on before pictures.

How can you guys tell that the fish you are catching are the same? The 2 in this post don't even look alike.

But if you look at the coloring on the pelvic fin (lower middle) you can see a color difference right above it.The 1st fish has white above it where as the 2nd fish does not. Oh well.

Im guessing that white is from the flash since it is dark. Check out the dots at the base of the tail and move towards the head you can see the dots match up.

I caught the same fish twice in one day. Theres one fish on the lake that I fish that Ive caught around 6-7 times. First caught it when it was 44 inches and as of the full moon last August it was 50.25 inches!!!

Hiya -

Caught the same fish 4 times one summer - fish had a big scar on her noggin so it was no question it was the same fish. All 4 times she was within maybe 25 feet of where she'd been caught or seen previously. Weird thing was she hit the same bait all 4 times (a purple Harasser). She'd follow other stuff sometimes, but only hit that Harasser... I lost her at least one other time too.

Fish are weird.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Hey Bronzeback nice fish! I was out this past friday and was hoping to see you out on the water but obviously no luck or we missed you that evening. Slow going, never even moved a thing not even a sm.

Not sure if I ever caught the same one but I know of 50Inchpig getting one that I messed up a bit (not proud of that but I was glad it lived.) More importantly what does the bottom of your boat look like - with fish like this coming up to it twice I want to paint mine to look the same!! wink

Nice fish!!

Aluminum with a bit of a scum line. wink

And as far as him wearing that shirt, he came back to town that night from an interview in the metro area and I convinced him to get dropped off at the landing to fish. I'd say it was worth it.

Anyone questioning that this is the same fish only needs to look at the 3 larger dots on the tail portion, or I can post a more detailed close up, but there's no question.

It's cool to hear everyone else's stories similar to this, I'm hoping I see this girl again next year.
