      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Fish tale: Resolve to catch big fish pays off

Recommended Posts

(from the StarTrib)

Luke Iverson, 12, of Lakeville, caught a 20-inch bass on an unnamed Minnesota lake.

(As told by Luke's dad, Glaydon)

"It was Saturday morning at the cabin; Luke and his cousin Adam went snorkeling about 100 feet off the dock and noticed a large fish hanging out in a rocky area.

"Luke came back all excited and told his mom, 'I am going to catch that big fish today.'

"With no fishing boat available and the rocky area too far for casting from the dock, Luke put on his snorkel gear and while carrying his fishing pole in his right hand, snorkeled out to the spot where he had seen the fish.

"In about 6 feet of water, Luke happened to find a rock to stand on, dropped his line, and seconds later snagged the fish.

"He snorkeled back to the dock as fast as he could with bending pole in hand and fish on the line.

"We guessed the smallmouth bass to be about 20 inches in length and 3 pounds.

"After some high-fives and picture-taking, the smallmouth bass was released to be caught another day.''

The new tactic, snorkle fishing without a harpoon. Great story, but I bet that bass was heavier than three pounds.

X2. At 20 inches it should be at least 4lb skinny or pushing 5lbs, maybe even almost 6lb isnt out the question? Its going to depend on the girth. Is there a picture of the fish to at least get a clue?
