      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 .

Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for April 20, 2017

Recommended Posts

Fairly regular rain falls over the past week have green-up proceeding rapidly with even reports of trees starting to leaf out in the far north. The rain has been especially helpful for the spring wildfire season, with fire danger levels remaining low to moderate over much of the last couple of weeks. But warm weather and wind are in the forecast, and it only takes a short time for fire danger levels to increase, so continue to check fire danger levels and if doing any burning, follow burning permit rules.Lower Falls and the Horton Covered Bridge at Amnicon Falls State Park.Photo Credit: DNRWater levels on streams and rivers are running way above the normal flow for this time of year. In the north waterfalls are roaring at Amnicon Falls, Copper Falls and Pattison state parks. The lower Wisconsin River was flowing at 33,000 cubic feet per second, more than two-and-a-half times its normal flow this time of year and travel on the main channel is not recommended.Warmer water temperatures and good river flows drew sturgeon up Wolf River and hundreds of people have shown up to watch these prehistoric fish spawn below the Shawano dam. DNR fisheries staff have been capturing sturgeon to collect eggs and sperm for fish hatcheries where young sturgeon will be reared and then stocked into state waters and in waters in other states where sturgeon are being reintroduced. Biologists also weigh measure and tag the fish to monitor the population. Sturgeon were also running on Green Bay tributaries including the Menominee, Peshtigo and Oconto rivers.
