      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 .

First St Croix KOTC Flat entry - looks like bait?

Recommended Posts

I wasn't expecting much for fish last night with that cold front that moved in. The weather wasn't that bad except it was colder than a well digger's buttocks and on 27 May - gimme a break. It was partly cloudy, winds calm, low of 40 degrees. St Croix continues to drop with water elevation at 677.7' (normal is 675.5') and a water temp of 63 degrees. Sunset was at 2047 with a last quarter moon.

I had hooks in the water at 1940 and the Twins on the radio. I set up on a flat opposite a main channel hole with nice current flow. It was dead with no action, I relocated on the hole a couple of times, I know it holds flats.

At 2225 I finally had a run on a bullhead and set the hook on my first flat of the season. He turned out to be a bit of a wimp but it was my first flat so beggers can't be choosers. He measured out at 27" X 16.5" for a total KOTC score of 43.5.

The Twins blew a lead in the bottom of the ninth when Nathan gave up an inside the park homer. I was cussing at the radio and decided to hunker down and fish until the game was over. The Twins finally won in the 12th inning at 2253. I hung around a little while longer because I had a run and a drop at 2300. At midnight I said the heck with it and headed in.

I entered my Itty Bitty Little One in the KOTC. You have to start somewhere. I'll be out again soon - we need some warm weather. SteveDeMars5-27-08.jpg
