      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 .

I am taking my 74 year old father to Devils Lake February 19, 20 and 21.  We are hauling all of our own gear out there.  Does anyone know of any local fisherman that would be interested in helping us out for a day to get the lay of the land.   We would be able to compensate but don't want to pay 300 per day for the 2 of us with the big guide services.   We have all of our own gear.   Any help would be appreciated.   We would like to focus on Walleye and Perch.  We will be staying at the Casino and will be mobile.   Thanks.

Skeeter, my son (turning 13) and I will be up there the weekend before staying at woodlands and using a guide the first day.  I will let you know what worked for us and where we were.  Last year was an absolute blast with the guide, I finally got to sit back and fish and it was awesome......

Sounds like a fantastic outing for you and your dad.  My dad passed away a few years back, and I really wish I had put a Devils Lake trip together prior to our losing him.  Enjoy your time together!  I'm sure some of the HSO folks like picksbigwagon will gladly lend a hand/advice to make it a memorable experience for both of you!  Wish I could join you up there but the dates don't work.

There may be some smaller guide services around the Devils Lake area, could try calling some of the local bait shops like Ed's. They could maybe point you in the right direction or give you some contact information for some local fisherman who would help you out. Checking out "Hooked up Guide Service" I think they are a smaller outfit on DL.
