      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!!!

Two weeks at the King

Recommended Posts


I spent two weeks up teaching fishing and archery to the kids and I can honestly say, I think I had more fun than they did. It was a productive time too. We took several 3+ lbs, a mess of 4 +, a few 5's, one easy 6+ and a monster I lost as I lifted him up to lip him. Pure body weight broke the line. Add to that, a ton of blue gill of all sizes and some very nice bullhead. A night trip brought some monster 'gills and some perfect bullhead. Got to love a full moon! A picture perfect night. My fishing partner put it best in her post, "lost in that night, bathed in moonlight". Couldn't have gotten any better.

Well, they've asked me back for another weekend worth of fishing. I guess I did ok. I was too busy to take pics but I'm hoping the Sept. trip will allow me time to snap some and post them.

All of you share in this success story. It's the friendship, kindness, and enthusiasm that you share with each other and those you meet, that helps it to be passed on by someone you impacted. In this case, me. I'm proud to know you guys and to be considered a friend. I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Until then, I'll keep passing it on and paying it forward.
