      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 .

St Croix Flat KOTC Upgrade

Recommended Posts

What a beautiful night to be on the water. Warm July evening, winds were calm and the water was flat as glass, Twins playing the Chicago White Sox on the radio. The kind of evening that makes you proud to be an American.

I set up on one of my favorite St Croix flathead spots and had hooks in the water at 1942 with two nice bullheads swimming in a prime spot. I settled in and listened to the Twins shutout Chicago and all was right with the world. After the game finished I was putzing around in the boat and at 2155 I got a screaming clicker run and hooked up with a nice fish. From the way he fought I thought it was a big fish but he was a modest 35" length X 23.5" girth for 58.5 points. About a 24 lb fish from the flathead conversion chart. It was an upgrade for me so I put him in as a KOTC entry.

I'm kind of inching my way up the flathead board with a long way to go to break into the top 5. There is a lot of season left and I can't get there if my hooks aren't in the water. Look out Dtro - the St Croix flatheads are biting again.
