      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 .

Got on the lake today

Recommended Posts

Good 4 inches where I was spearing. Did measure a spot that was 3. Could only go for an hour, but it was fun to get out again, it's the earliest ive ever been out, are the lakes normally a little cloudier early on? Because last year this lake was pretty clear.

It may have to due with the high winds that occurred right before and or during ice up. I know many of the lakes I spear are wide open yet by Brainerd and spearing may be poor for a while until the sediments settles out but only time will tell. Congrats on the first outing!

I got out this afternoon for about an hour. I tried the river behind our house. I had one come in about 10 minutes after getting set up, then another about a half hour later. Both were pretty small. The second one hung around for a quite a while and played with the decoys. He hit three different decoys. Hit one and leave, change, hit the new one and leave, change, come in and hit that one. At one point I had him just inches from the surface to where I could almost reach down and touch his back. Its little things like that why I like spearing so much.
