      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 .

57% Wow.  What did the DNR do to make such an improvement? ;)

nothing different seeing how we should peak in 2 years maybe we will see a higher than average peak since the 80s coming up

if you look at the graph from 08 to 09 it made a jump as similar since this one is a year early maybe it will go even higher

The arrowhead had a wet cold spring which is hard in young grouse. Don't mean to be burst your bubble. Around central Minnesota it seems we have had a good hatch. Turkeys pheasants and grouse best of luck guys

I hit one the other day with my car. And my dog has been bumping quite a few up when we go for our walks. I think us grouse guys are in for a good year.

And cool weather next week

We have not seen many young grouse all summer driving the back roads of the arrowhead. See a couple adults birds but they were single birds. I have seen more young birds around Princeton than the arrowhead.

Two trips planned this year, one to Silver Island Lake area on opener to also take in a little walleye fishing. Cover will be thick on opener, but that's the dogs job to take care of.

Second trip is the annual seven day trip friends and I take to the Orr area in mid October. We've hightailed it out of there in near blizzard conditions at times, what a difference a month makes this time of year up on the border.
