      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 .

losing "Walter"

Recommended Posts

What a perfect day to be out in the kayak fishing. Absolutly a beautiful day. Caught a few decent size sunnies, a very nice Lg mouth, then I decided to move across to another small bay, and then it began crazy - a HUGE Hit, a dive and then GONE, about 20 minutes later - a HUGE Hit, gone in 2 sec, again about 1/2 hr later - a Huge Hit a short dive and maybe 7 sec, GONE. I lost "Walter" 3 times in an hour and a half !!!! crycry

Pretty sure it was a pike - - a huge pike - - cry

Oh jeez Tami! That is such a bummer! I can't even imagine pulling a northern in from a kayak. That would be the ultimate adrenalin rush! At least you were out fishing and not working! smile

What's worse is when you get a very large walleye up to the boat and you realize you forgot the net and he breaks the line before you can have a chance to grab him. Although I don't know which is worse, to think it was a huge fish or to know it was. And no I still haven't gotten out yet. cry Life things seem to keep getting in the way.

Hey Tami, were you fishing local or up at your place up Nort? Sorry to hear about the 1 tug louie but that is what makes fishing so dang much fun isn't it? Good luck on your next outing. I am sure "Walter" will still be lurking in that new favorite spot of yours!

I was on a local lake here in the south burbs, and I will be out Walter hunting again tonight. He's lurking in the shallows by the catails, the water is only about about 2.5 ft deep and the bottom is very soft, but I've got his number grin I know where he's feeding and I know what he likes .. ( jaws music playing here ..... ) laugh - He's mine crazygrin -
