      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 .

Can someone explain this to me?????

How a muskie can just smoke a lure, say for example a Suick, and get perhaps two out of nine hooks into it, whereas a pike can smoke the same lure, and manage to get all nine hooks into it?

Had to cut hooks off my favorite Suick yesterday because a pike buried 7 trebles.............. crazy

I'm wondering how I can get at least 4 hits on my black suick, but no hook-ups. My guess is they were pike, but all I get is teeth marks on the head! I even had a tooth embedded in the suick.

When they clamp down on lure only, you don't pull lure to get hook set, you end up pulling fish on hook set. When they engulf lure and you pull lure to get a hook set, you pull in line and lure and not fish on hook set.

Conventional answer: Bigger mouth, bonier too, longer teeth to prevent hooks hitting flesh, stonger fish to shake loose a lure....etc.

Real-Life answer: Simply because they're muskies, designed to tork us off and leave us coming back for more.

Funny the Suick is mentioned, I love 'em but I lost a really solid fish on 'tonka a couple years ago that I would have bet the bank on that I had pinned well.

I still try to keep the mindset that I'll leave a bruise on my rib cage beacuse I set the hooks so hard......
