      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Where would you go for vacation/fishing in January/February

Recommended Posts

Texas or Florida

Mostly it would be laying around on the beach relaxing with the chance to get out for some offshore fishing.  I saw that somebody posted in the Florida forum that they rented kayaks and fished in the cannels that sounds fun also.

Is there a better time to go to one of these places to have good fishing and still nice weather.  I can go between November and April (and not when spring break is going on).

Thanks you the reply's,

Texas? Really? Worst vacation state ever (ok-I just had a really bad experience). But seriously, Texas beaches suck. Florida is way better (plus the eye candy on the south beach beaches are unreal)!

No better place to be that time of year, than northeast Minnesota! Lake trout through the ice beats out south beach or Disney world any day of the week!

I don't know. Typically I would agree but the scenery was reeeeeealy good there last time I went. Plus, in Florida you can go watch the Twins! (LOL)

Costa Rica.   We went this past Feb.  Airfare to Libera was very good.  Fished from the beach in morning/evening and had fun chasing the schools that would swim through.  Do some research and you can plan to go to areas with better fishing and charter options.  Certain species are better in different seasons.   We went out on a small boat twice, first time got skunked and the motor broke down, second time we got into some small tuna which were fun to catch.  Small boat guides have crappy gear, bring your own if at all possible.   We watched another boat catch a rooster fish, hell of a fight.    Send me a PM if you want more info.
