      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 .

new State Record?

Recommended Posts

Anybody else hear the rumor of a new record, 9lbs 6 oz. Taken on a lakle in the Alex area. Late last week. Story goes, he missed the bigger of the two, caught the 9-6. I know the name of the lake, but will wait to see if anybody else can confirm.

If it is the lake mentioned, it is very possible. Big fish taken out of it every year. Agape, where are you? confirm or dispel this fish tale. If it is true, I guess the other thread on where the next state record will come from is answered. Central MN.

I always question one thing. If a said person caught a state record bass but names a different lake as to deter people from pressuring the original lake, wouldn't that be falsifying info on the record application. That would be automatic disqualify as a state record for falsifying.

I heard the same "dock talk" at both tournaments we fished this weekend. I guess we will just have to wait and see. The lake mentioned does hold pigs, but...

If it's official, it'd be announced on the DNR site. Looks like it's another story, just like every year.

Hey guys I'm the one that caught it but I chose not to officially register it. It weighed 9-8 on my de-liar. I didn't think to take any pictures until after I'd already ate it! Oops!

How could you have caught it when I did?

It was 10-12 and I decided to let it go as it was illegall hooked (not in the mouth).

Funny, someone claims they caught a world's record bass and used a simular story. The only picture they took was the guy "straight arming" a bass. Nice fish, but the straight arm made it look silly. And, not a world record.
