      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 .

Great stuff!! I'd encourage you to take a few minutes and listen to this one, it'll hopefully pay dividends for you the early part of this season!

Good thing I found those Mag Reed Runners on clearance for $2.50 a piece!

I wish someone would be willing to type up transcript of this podcast for someone like me, Quack, and Matty to be able to read seeing how we're deaf... It certainly sounds very intriguing...

Hey Reb,

The current issue of Outdoor News has an article from Rob that covers the points of the cast quite well. It's pretty close to a transcript, and right from the source.

Points not in the article but in the Podcast were about avoiding stressing or even fishing for fish that are actively/visibly spawning, handling with care, pinching barbs, etc.

That should help you guys out and catch you all up to speed on the Podcast.

Interesting that Minnesota fish are still spawning. I read the Wisconsin DNR outdoor report and the Upper Chippewa fish actually spawned around the same time they normally do even in the cold water. They're best guess is the length of day was triggering spawning.

Hiya -

Sort of a [PoorWordUsage] shoot on the spawn I think. I can't remember what year it was, but the last time we had a cold, wet spring, we saw spawning muskies all over LoTWs during the Ontario opener (3rd week in June), and I actually saw muskies spawning on a Longville area lake in late June.

Leech lake strain muskies spawn twice, usually 7-10 days apart, so it's a pretty drawn-out affair. Hard to pin down when they're actually done.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm
