      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 .

Tiger in Minnesota

Recommended Posts

Nice work Tom. You are one up on me. What did the tiger trout hit on? How did it feel? More silky like a brookie? Better yet, how did it taste? J/K.

Did minnesota ever do any stocking of them? I don't know of any tiger stocking in particular, what a rare fish to find if it's wild born!

I heard tiger trout were exclusively stocked in the great lakes. There is a GIANT tiger caught Len showed me a photo of a while back. They can grow really fast in the big lakes however the striping not nearly as pretty as a stream trout brookie which was NOT hatchery raised. Female brook and a male brown. It is rare and a tiger is sterile.

Yeah, sometimes they're engineered and stocked. Nothing like the real thing. Of course Len's seen dozens:

stream born tigers in the midwest resemble their fathers more than their mother. If you see a tiger that looks more like a brown it is for sure a stocker. Tom's obviously is a stream born tiger and VERY rare. The brook trout traits are more obvious and the colors are beautiful.

Tiger trout are hybrid fish that are not stocked but reproduce naturally. They are a bit of a freak of nature. They are sterile, so they don't reproduce offspring. They are aggressive by nature and typically don't grow very large due to that trait. They occur when you have numbers of brown and brook trout in a stream. Wisconsin certainly produces more tigers since they have more trout water and more waters that hold both browns and brookies.
