      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 .

My response to my Ethics post

Recommended Posts

I would first like to say that I have never figure 8ed for a Muskie out of season and never will. Not only is it illegal but why would any responceble angler want to hook a fish that may possibly procreate the species.

It was just a question that I thought up while driving back from the lake the other day and I thought it would be an interesting topic.

Why would one be fishing for muskies out of season? I guess you could use the fishing for pike line, if you truly were fishing for pike. A fine line that unfortunately some cross. Only you have to justify what is right or wrong for your own conscience. People will always judge others behavior, right or wrong, based on their own beliefs-its their nature.

Obviously, you don't need to be fishing Muskie to catch one out of season. I've caught them on more then one occassion on a jig and minnow fishing for walleye, or throwing cranks and spoons looking for Pike or Bass. It happens...

But if it's out of season, I don't bring it into the boat if I can help it. If I have to bring it into the boat so I can get my lure back, I'll do that and put it right back. But if possible, I'll just extract the lure or cut the line and release him without pulling him from the water.

And just let me say for the record, that I have never caught a Muskie out of season. The paragraph above is me just saying what I WOULD do IF one were to hit my line pre-season.

I've been out pike fishing this year and seen more muskies than I ever did muskie fishing last year. Throwing 1/2 ounce daredevil's and they won't leave them alone. [PoorWordUsage].
