      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 .

Rock Bass

Recommended Posts

Last week whe nwe were on vacation up to Park Rapids we caught a bunch of huge rock bass. Are these things any good to eat? Any flavor or they just taste like [PoorWordUsage]? If so how do you prepare them.

We cook our fish by melting a stick of butter flavor Crisco and then put the fillets in Frying Magic and then fry them to a light golden brown.

Just kiddin with you Whiskers. Scroll down to the bottom of the main forum page and check out the recipe sharing section. There is a thread in there about Rock Bass. Although I have never consumed one, I know people that have. They are in the pan fish family, can't be too bad.

They are edible.. however have more bones than most want to pick through.

they are not saught after table fare. If you choose to eat them, you save us from having to take them off our hook and I thank you for that!.

from what I hear, they arent that bad, once you get by picking through all the bones and such.

I was waiting for the remark about Iowa!! HAHA!! We caught a bunch of them on Fish Hook Lake and man were they huge like round little footballs. If I had a scale in the boat it would be interesting to see what they weighed. Don't worry we didn't keep any of them or eat any but was just curious as it looks like they would have a bunch of meat when pantlegged filleted out.

Thanks for the info.
