      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 .

Muskies boated at Operation Muskie!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Just getting back into the swing of things after getting back from LOTW this past weekend. Operation Muskie was the ultimate of successes!! Everything ran very smooth and organized and best of all the fish were biting! Fished for 3 1/2 days and here are some rough totals. For the 30 guys fishing (20 vets/10 guides) there were roughly 43 muskies boated. The largest by a guide measured 52 inches and the largest by a vet was 49.5! Not to mention it was only the vet's 2nd muskie ever! I was lucky enough to be in the boat with him, and he was literally shaking with excitment when Chad Cain put it in the net! The majority of the fish were in the 41-46 range, but quite a few 48's were caught as well. Weather was perfect and only got about a 5 minute squall of rain that came through. Couldn't have asked for a better group of guides and vets. Bay Store Camp was just a hair above awesome and in a great location on the lake which enabled us to go every which direction to get to the fish. I am still getting all the photos of the fish, but when I get done, I will post pics up for everyone to see.

Good news is that it sounds like this is going to grow legs and become an annual outing. We are starting to work out details, and while not official as of yet, I am about 75% sure it will happen again next year. Stay tuned and I will let everyone know.

Congrats on a great trip Bret, I know a TON of work went into the trip, glad it was a success.

That was one heck of a list of people in the muskie world that you had lined up! I'm sure there were some great stories told!
