      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 .

Get Its Head Up

Jeff Mills and I fished today.  I have a quirk when I trout fish with someone.  I am a little too intense.  I always tell anglers that fish with me to get the heads up of big trout when you get a hook up.  I always assess the area and look at possible landing spot.

Jeff had a hook up and the trout dove immediately.  The decent sized trout wrapped around the only root system near us.  Jeff tried every way he could think of to untangle the trout.  Jeff almost went swimming sitting on the root system and leaning over the water.  Jeff nearly netted the trout on three tries. The fish eventually broke off.

The rest of the outing went a lot easier.  I still relaxed in my outdoor recliner often and watched Jeff.

When I wasn't reclining I landed 15 browns.  I caught 2 littlest trout of the day.  The 3 inch and 6 incher were monstrous.
This wide bodied female put quite a bend on my rod.

Jeff landed 18 browns and caught the 2 biggest of the day.

None of the trout were measured but this one below was obviously big trout of the day.
