      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 .

Did you gals read about that 49.4lb lake trout caught by a Hibbing mother and daughter team on Lake Nipigon in Ontario? They caught it mid-July. Here's a pic from the Duluth News-Tribune: wpxtrout0824.jpg

It took them 45 mins to get it in the boat! Isn't that an awesome catch?

Yes, it’s coming back to me now……

I’m fighting this fish and this sled comes flying up. Rider gets off walks over, says HI introduces himself then asks for a Beer. Well the nice guy I am, I reach over for one to give to him and take my attention off that huge fish for one second…….and then it was gone.

Without skipping a beat, the guy then asks for a smoke, so I sent him over to you grin

That 50lber is still swimming. wink

The woman holding the fish works at one of the offices we support(computer systems) up here. Her mother was really excited to get the fish and she was pretty dare excited to see her mother get the fish.

Fish over 30 lbs have been caught from Bside. Divers report seeing lakers between 30 and 40 lbs. A 20-plus is caught every couple of years. Last year or the year before on spring opener, a guest at Camp Van Vac was fishing off the dock with dead cisco on the bottom and caught a 20 and a 17.

I think dtro's fish wasn't quite 50. You know how much bigger fish look in the water than they do once they're on the ice. winkwink

upnorth, you should let her know that they've hit "Celebrity Status" here in the internet world!! I'd be splitting at the seams if I caught a fish like that you guys!

Sent her the link Friday...teasing her about being an "Internet Star",she thought it was pretty cool to be a topic on fishing forum.

Her co-worker(who I also sent the link to) who is also a good friend of hers outside of work said something that I can't post here about being an "Internet Star" and not exposing some body parts blush They can be interesting to work with whistleblushgrincool
