      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 .

4 Shots From Today

Recommended Posts

Did some riverbank fishing and cleanup in and along the river today. I brought along the camera,but only fired it about 6 times and kept these 4. I was experimenting on what metering mode to use when the light was constantly changing and moving around,shooting in shady/brightly lit woods. Spot metering with -1 1/3 ec seemed to work ok,so I left it set to that.

I will try to I.D. these items,but there is a strong possibility that I could be wrong. smirk

Rosey Branch berries


Orange spotted leaf grubber


Yellow chested gnat nibbler


Buff Breasted Branch fisher


OK,so I may need some work on my I.D.s

You had me going on the IDs until the third one. That one seemed a bit too corny. Nice shots. I especially like the clean bg and pose on the last one. Only 6 shots taken? It would have taken me 60 shots to come away with this many decent photos. whistle

You know X,I was suprised that background turned out like it did. It was about 75 yards to the other side of the river,he was sitting on the wood,right above the water,and would swoop out over the river to catch bugs.

We also caught 4 Walleye,1 6 lb.Cat,and 1 Big Snapping Turtle.

My father hooked the snapper and was ever so nice to let me get it off for him. I grumbled a little,to which he replied "just lip him like a bass,that's how I used to do it"

I cut his line and said "maybe next time"
