      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 .

Best pocket camera for recording the catch

Recommended Posts

I am in market for a small camera to replace my Olympus Stylus Epic which weights 4.8 oz and is "all-weather". Giving it to my daughter.
I need the scoop on the best replacement.
Got to be small, weather resistant and not a battery hog (like my Kodak EasySHare digital). I am thinking probably another 35mm would do it.

my choice is the kodak waterproof camera. they float,not very spendy and durable. keep the lens from scratching and they do take nice pitcures. the down fall, no flash.

I always carry a disposable in a ziploc when I'm in the field or on the water. Always work well, small, light, and with stuff being easy to lose in the outdoors they are cheap.

pj4, thanks for the Kodak floatable idea. I once leaned over the stearn to tilt a little outboard and my Cannon A-1 rolled out of my backpack into the drink. Cost a bundle to fix.

Lunker, I have never thought of the disposable but if they take good standard pictures they are small enough and yes, less risk in an inherently risky environment.

I always have my disposable camera in my hunting or fishing gear. I too put it in a ziploc bag. I carrie last one around for over a year before I finally finished the roll and had it developed. I am very satisfied with the quality of the pictures and I usually buy them on sale for around 5 bucks. I used to have some that only had 12 pictures on them, but can't seem to find them anymore. My new one has 27, but I suppose I could develop it sooner if I wanted too since I believe you only pay for the pictures that develop. Maybe I just need to take more pictures!!
