      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 .

Equipement Changes

I enjoy reading your thoughts on the bestest and newest. When I think of all I have seen over the past fifty years, it's mind boggling.
Regardless how you feel about B.A.S.S. or Pro Tournaments, we all benefited from it. It gave the manufactures a testing ground like no other. Some companies went along for the ride and some companies, like Berkley, took it to the cutting edge.
I asked myself what I would rank as the best improvement I have seen or used. Electronics?, I remember the first time I took my "Green Box" on the water. Rods?, I remember my jaw dropping with my first cast with my new Lightning Rod. Lures shot out like from a cannon. Reels? no doubt they are improved to works of art. I remember when the first spinning reel came out, more toy then reel.
How about boats, lures or accessories? No doubt.
For me it has to be fishing line. From the old twisted cotton line that soaked water like a sponge, some tried rubbing Bee's wax on it. First Mono that came off the reel like a bed spring and stretch like a rubber band.
I know all of you have your preference and that is the way it should be. For my money Berkley did more to improve fishing line during the early years of BASS, then all the wonders we have seen. I remember the first time I loaded 12# Trimax on a ambassadeur, I thought maybe I should have gotten 20#, this does not look strong enough. I only had reservoirs with flooded timber and stumps to fish when I was home and you had to yank those fish out and Trimax performed better then I had hope. I had one other preference, Royal Bonnyl, loved that on my Walleye reels. New line continues coming out on a annual basis today.
I can only wonder what you young Anglers will see in fifty years.
One thing has not changed, "HOW DO I CATCH FISH"?
Keep up the chatter, I will be reading along
