      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 .

MN/BE River Walleyes

Man the river fishing has been good so far this year. I got a 17" and a 15" walleye among others that I did not keep. My question is after cleaning them I notice the meat looks darker then the fish I caught out of the lakes in the winter. Anyone know if this will effect the taste of them? Reason I ask is I want to go get more but do not want to waste them by deciding they are too gross. I hope everyones season is starting out good like mine. We caught some channels and a 31" northern as well along with some sheep head and other throw backs.

Water quality can have an effect on the meat and its color with some stained water fish gaining more of a stained appearance. Depending on what river and where you are fishing I'd consult the regs and see if they are edible fish.

Ive eaten dozens maybe hundreds of eyes out of the area rivers over the last 20 years. The last couple years I switched to all C&R around Mankato, but I have friends that still say they are delicious. The DNR site says a meal per week of 15-20" fish (1 meal/month for pregnant women & kids). I'd recommend keeping smaller fish (17" max) & cutting any read meat out of the filet.
