      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 .

Finally bought my fishing licence and got out to do a little fishing

Recommended Posts

Bought my fishing licence this past Saturday and even took my boat out for the first time. We decided to try for some eye balls.. We only fished for 3 hours or so because it was really slow. Only 3 confirmed fish bites. One was a bass that flipped off right before it got to the boat.

Then I got a nice bite, at first I thought it was a snag, but I quickly realized it wasnt. As I was reeling it in, it made a run and snags dont usually move under the boat and make you switch sides smile After a few minutes of it just peeling line I decided to try to bring it in. Once we saw it, we new it was a decent northern and knew that a net was needed. My buddy grabbed the net, scooped up the fish, started to pull it into the boat when all of a sudden, the fish was back in the water. It broke my net! I got a nice line burn on my finger but somehow I still had the fish on the line with the net in the middle. So we tried one more time to land it. Now I had to fight the net and fish but managed to land it (hole in net and all). After the battle I ended up landing a fairly nice, just shy of 35" northern.

It would have been nice to land a Walleye or 2, but or the first fish of the season, I cant complain and it made a nice story.
