      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 .

White Bass

Recommended Posts

St. Croix gets the good bite this time of the year. They are getting them around current breaks, eddies, and narrows. They said the smaller ones were hitting mid depth and back further of the spot and the bigger ones are hitting close to the bottom and on the front of the spot. Fatheads and a split shot 1.5-2' in front was the ticket. I haven't been out on the boat yet this year but people are catching 1-2.5lb'ers from the Croix. I asked for one and they gave me a 17.5"er.

Thanks Ricqik, people I know has been talking about St. criox river too. I might go try it this weekend up by taylor falls. I also heard that rooster tail works real good in the morning. My brother said his friends were up there and was fishing for white bass but the walleyes was biting left and right. they caught some pretty big ones, they took some pics and let them go, not opener yet, getting close.

I went out today on the Croix for some whities. We launched out of Beannies. Boy, it's brutally cold and the waves are slammin us around when we try to go north of the X/X tracks. So we hung around about 50 or so feet south of the tracks and caught 11 whities and 2 perches. We decided to brave it and head to the xcel plant discharge and caught 4 crappies. We called it a day after that.
