      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Several months ago we initiated a partnership with WFN: World Fishing Network, the only 24/7 fishing TV channel. In February, we welcomed a WFN television crew for some of the world famous perch and walleye fishing Mille Lacs is famous for. We managed to get into some great early morning perch on day 1 and a nice 26 inch walleye, but the “wind storm of the winter” bared down on us hard early afternoon, effectively shutting down the fishing for the rest of the trip. Hats off to the guys from WFN – for sticking out some of the worst fishing conditions we have seen… we welcome them back anytime!

I've been tuning into WFN for the past few weeks since it was just released on Dish Network and it's a great channel. All your Sat/Sun morning favorites are on there along with many others that should appeal to fisherman of all sorts.
