      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 .

Anyone thought about this?

I have been seeing a lot of gar lately now that the water has come down. Has anyone used them for cutbait before. Some spots they come right up to the boat, and you can probably grab them with your hands, or at least the net. I used the stomach of once when we ran low on other bait. It produced a 12lb channel. I will try it out and report back.

Many years ago - we tried using it as cut bait. It took a tin snips to cut through the skin of those South Dakota Gar....

A friend of mine actually tried to eat one - ALA "poor man's Lobster."

It wasn't....

We actually did net one a few weeks back on the MN up by Carver. Saw the same thing you did, many gar up close to the shore lines munching on baitfish. When it was quiet, you could actually hear their jaws snappin' on the surface.

Never thought of it before. All ways figured it was illegal.

They are very easy to catch and I wonder what a smaller live one hooked with a 10/0 would produce???

Shack- Methinks that's something we should try!~ unless it's deemed illegal. Big honkin' float over a 10/0 and enough lead to hold it still would be interesting
