      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 .

Going to be in AK in June/July. Saw a charter fishing ad for King Sized Adventures on the Kenai River. Is anyone familiar with them? Any other suggestions for charter fishing that time of year? Thanks.

what do you want to catch? during that time your best bet for fish in the river are rainbows and sockeye salmon. rainbow fishing opens up june 13th i believe. the king run is not doing so hot lately. the past few years have been pretty slow down there on the kenai. James McCormick

Email: Kenaijim@alaska.net

I know him very well and I do not think he is guiding any more. he gave all his clients to his son but you can use this number to contact him about how to contact his son. They guide for all species on the river and they might even do a half day for rainbows and then other half fish for something else. they have been fishing that river for many many years and jim has been on many tv shows like Hunt for Big Fish and The One and also that one with larry zonka or how you spell his name. here is a link to the type of quality rainbows you can expect to catch

that is jim with the net for ocean fishing if you going to be down by the kenai just drive another few hours and go to homer. there are lots of halibut charters down there that will get you on fish.

I used a guy named Jim Rusk for a week King Fishing. He did a great job for us. He was located in Soldatna.

June/July is pretty vague...especially for timing salmon runs. Any more specific timeframe? What kind of fish do you want to target...reds? kings?

A couple good guides I've fished with are Mark Glassmaker and Fenton Brothers, both on the lower Kenai for kings.
