      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 .

I've been in one for 15 years. Like an old folks home with travel trailers, but we always get a good night's sleep. Only as good as the owners/managers. Previous owner caused me to put up "for sale" sign. New owner took over and sign came down. Suggest staying at one for a weekend and ask a lot of questions. Decide what kind of campground you want. Party place, kids place, drinking, ok with with old crummy trailers and lots of junk laying around or do you want fussy owners with a lot of rules. You will find a lot of variations. Good luck.

We had a seasonal site for nearly ten summers at a resort just purchased by a younger semi-retired couple. After a few seasons, they became more "resort owners" and started to charge for everything. The final factor was when they started to charge fees for friends that stay overnight at my camper. They wanted $35/night for from fishing buddy that came up to visit for a weekend and slept in MY camper. Left the resort at the end of the season and bought my own lot. Now only I get to make the rules.

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye. 
    • Minnesota, Merica, and the World commie boy!
    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy. 
    • Who's Art? Yer neighbor?
    • Hey now!!  Any snowmobile is a work of Art!
    • Hell, a garbage bin on it's side sorta looks like that.....
    • HAHAHAA!  
    • We also had an old Johnson sled that looked sort of like that......
    • A Fall retreat! The acrid smell of a wood fire....crisp leaves crunching underfoot....frost tipped-grass sparkling in the early morning sun....nuttin' like a nice, cool Fall day in da woods!  A cup o' steaming cawfee in yer paw....
