      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 .

Finally got a big walleye...

Recommended Posts

I finally broke past the 28" mark... with a true 32"  (11 pounds on the scale) walleye :) It has a cool blue hue to the tails and fins due to some type of parasite in the slime, really neat look, and very dark with yellowish bellies. (I hold fish close to me for pics, it was almost touching my chest, and I go about 240, it was a really fat fish.) It's still swimming.

I figure I have to brag a bit, but only a bit because it was on Saganaga with a guide ;) Even had an official Canadian shore lunch on a pretty little island surrounded by cedars.

Pulling spinners/crawlers on rock reefs, this was the biggie, along with about 2 dozen more that were up to 27", but most under 18". Was a fun trip, great scenery and some lake trout for an hour or so as well (they were coming off the bottom in 80-100'). We did two days, and the 32, a 27, and a couple 25's were the biggies.

I am sure this will be the biggest walleye I ever catch, but I won't complain, ha!

Sounds like a super time and great fish to boot. Now, can you talk our wife into a $500-600 fiberglass repro for the wall?  That is your next challenge of a life time!  :D

I'm still trying to talk mine into getting my 36" Laker that I released done but losing the challenge so far! :(

Thanks guys! It was fun and I was all smiles with each "super head shake" she made :)

Leech, the good thing about replicas is you can keep working on the war department until they give in, which might even be years later ;) haha! That's my plan!!!

Congrats Box, mpester came in my office and showed me a pic of your fish yesterday......"Seen it already"

:)

I'm still stuck on 27".

Heck, the Mrs. has a 29"er.

Lately, I've been seriously considering a graphite replica for a 22"+ largemouth I caught 13 years ago.......as time goes by I realize how rare of a fish it was. Or the 20" brookie from ten years ago. Decisions decisions.

So you might think of getting that 32" replica sooner than later, so you can appreciate it staring back at you from the wall for years to come.
