      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 .

Flying fish...

Recommended Posts

So we were fishing a Metro lake on sunday morning. Sitting in about 10 ft of water. I was using fairly heavy gear:

7' MH Kistler Helium LTA

TD Fuego L

50lb PP

I feel a nice bite and set my hook...... SNAPPPP!!!!! nothing. I couldnt believe it. I turn around and start my F bombs.. *$&&#&%$ this and &@^&$ that. about 5 seconds later, I hear a splash, something wet hits my right leg, I look around on the boat and there's the bass... with my jig in its mouth. It jumped up, Im guessing trying to throw the jig, and landed in the boat. I got my lucky 3/8 All Terrain in black/blue back along with a nice 2.5lb bass.

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! My buddies and I laughed for a good couple minutes about that. Still counts as a landed bass right?

It only counts as a landed bass if it was legaly hooked!

I say he hooked it legally... grin There was just one slight problem, the line didn't stay connected! crazy Great story, and I'm glad you got your lure back!

Holy cow. Very lucky! I lost a fish this weekend that jumped over 3.5 foot reeds, Seeing that was cool but losing that 4-5 pound fish hurt.

Yeah, I think it was a bad knot. Cause I remember, we were coming up on some nice looking water and I had to get my jig in the water as fast as possible. So I tied a half-a$$ed knot, not my usual palomar. Lesson learned.

Ill only use that jig now when the fishing is extra tough.

Holy cow is right. Wow! What a hook set! 50lb power pro? Either that Powerpro is cheep s#@% or you get way to excited. I know I wouldn't want to be anywhere near you when you get a fish on.

Calm down!
