      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 .

Wi Small Stream Last Outing 2016

Recommended Posts

Three Gays Mills boys celebrated trout fishing coming to a close for the 2016 season.  We all lived in the small town of Gays Mills 50 years ago.  We are all retired now.

Not a cloud in the sky.  There was frost when we first began.  The catching was slow for the first hour.

Near the end of the outing I pointed out a spot at the top of a tight feed funnel and told Kevin that is where the alpha predator would be laying.  A couple casts later and some positioning and Kevin hit the sweet spot.

His gold panther martin size nine was rocked.  We saw the huge male brown go up on its side and we were all three awed at the "Bronze Beast" he had hooked up on.  This thing was in its full fall spawning colors and an amazing hooked jawed slob.

I had Kevin go down stream a ways to find a good place to net it.  I navigated the soft slippery bank and netted it.  All that was left to do was take some photos.
