      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 .

Is it just me or does everyone else think that the bass fishing is just getting better and better each year? May be it's do to "global warming". It seems that maybe the fruits of catch and release are here! And of coarse our fishing gear is better than ever before. what do you think?

Alot of it has to do with the gear that we all have here now days. Just think back about 5-10 years ago, where the gear has come from.

Fishing has been soft for me, but i have not spent alot of time out on the water, being that i have been so busy with work.

I think a lot of it has to do with all the information out there these days, like Fishing Minnesota. You can learn a lot by reading other anglers post and just asking question that will help you become a better angler.

I think the biggest thing is the catch and release up here for bass. We have abundant other game fish and pan fish for eating, down south alot of bass get kept and you read about those tournament guys saying 6-8 keeper bites a day is a really good day. That and we only get at most 5-6 months a year to catch them, rest of the time they just get to swim around un pressured.

I remember my only info came from the 1-2 guys I fished with or what info I got out of a magazine which is many times slanted because the mag is getting paid or getting free stuff from the supplier. Now I can read here and get 100 views of a bait or technique.

That is what FM is about, having fun and learning about the different situation or whatever the case might be. Everyone is always more then willing to help others out.
