      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 .

KVD WINS Angler of the Year

Recommended Posts

Years ago, cant even remember what year.. KVD in his rookie season was a seminar guy at our own Midwest sportshow(if I had to guess is to was 1990).. I sat in on his seminar with my father, if I remember right KVD was 19 at the time. I could be wrong though..At the end of the seminar I shook his hand and wished him luck on his career, Kevin only a few years older than myself...

At the end of his seminar I looked at my father and said... "This dude, is going to make it"... "He will be the first kid from the north to survive."

At that point, Nobody from the northern US had doen well consistantely.. I know people call shots, but I feel I nailed this one, and my dad reminds me of it every time he wins, WHICH IS A LOT!

Congrats to KVD, The dude just flat out breaks the mold!

A long time ago and not too far away, a Minneapolis Ranger dealer was having a winter boat show featuring a guest appearance by none other than TV star and fishing whiz Roland Martin. There was also an upstart rookie sponsered by Glastron there who no one wanted to talk to although he was making some head turns in the bass wars. I being new to bass fishing and wanting to learn as much as I could decided the lonely rookie was approachable and went up to him and began talking fishing. Well it was fishing to me, I am sure now in hindsight he realized what a neophyte I was to this game. Make a long story short, he spent the entire day explaining his theories on fish, location, anything you could think to ask. He invited me to lunch, and since no one was seeking him out, he was more than happy to explain in great detail what he thought were keys to sucessful fishing. I spent over 8 hours one on one with Rick Clunn who the next year won his first Bassmaster Classic!

Nope, it is the cookies. I am pretty sure she is just fine with baking him cookies with all the bread he brings home. A day in the boat with KVD would be a day nobody could ever forget.

Ever watch the show on ESPN called The Bass Pro's? KVD is on there all the time along with Rick Clunn, Timmy Horton, Jason something with all the tatoos and ear rings, Mike Ike, Skeet I think... It's pretty cool and they show tips and tricks they use.

Any ways - I think I got the cookie deal from watching that show. Maybe it was a Bass Master's show, but he was saying that was his secret - kidding of course.

Aaron Martin's has some routine to. PB&J's or something.
