      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 .

Se Florida fishing - what would you do?

Recommended Posts

We will be spending the month of February in Ft. Myers. My 27 yr. old son is coming down and wants to book a fishing trip. He would like to go out in the gulf. I think we would have more fun on the flats around the 10000 islands. Anybody have any suggestions?

The west coast looks like it has better fishing anyway, the couple of times I was down there.  There are all those rivers and canals and stuff. 


Have a great time.

find a reputable captain.   there are tons of boats that will take you out for a 100 bucks and just troll around catching you all the king macks and bonito's you can handle.   throw in a mahimahi and a cuda possibly.   they generally us squid baits tied 50' back from a diver.  which means that you fight the fish until its 50' away and then they bring it in by hand the rest of the way.  


its a tourist trap.  around ft meyers i would stick to inshore fishing guides.  tarpon/snook/redfish is where its at.
