      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 .

"Pike on theSt.Louis" (pics)

Recommended Posts

First day of the fishing season is here!...and not that bad!...I headed to the "Forbes Dam" on the St.Louis River to see what was biting....usually the redhorse and black suckers are in full swing along with some northerns and a few walleyes....the northerns were stacked up like cord wood this morning!...simply couldn't keep em off your hook!... grin...I know I caught and released probably 12 or so and the guy next to me probably caught and released 20!...other years I certainly get some northern action but this year simply unreal!...fun for sure!....nothing really big size wise maybe up to 5 lbs. or so but they really "slammed" the red and white dare devils!...and of course the suckers were hitting in between....even caught a sucker on a daredevil!...caught all these fish in about 2 1/2 hours...back in Hibbing by noon! grin

the northerns are really in there "thick"...if a guy likes northern fillets....this is your chance!.....oh!.....no walleys!....zip!...simply not in there yet!....apparently just to early and conditions aren't right for walleyes in any numbers...usually someone gets a few nice ones at the dam but not one was caught....but then again I was only there 2 1/2 hours....Warden was checking licenses....after he checked me he looked over my shoulder and started running (yes running!) up the bank after a "potential" not sure what happened there! grin

Ooh, you got some slimers. I detest touching the snotty toothy critters. However, they can be a blast to catch. Thanks for sharing your action. I'm a bit of a fair weather fisherman, so my time has not yet come.

Looks like a fun day Jonny! I'm really looking forward to some nice summer days and a boat on the water. Glad to see you had some luck.
