      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 .

Ponds

Recommended Posts

I live about 25 minutes away from a lot of good fishing spots but I don't always have a lot of time or the desire to burn that much gas so I thought I would see if anything would bite at a tiny pond closer to home. The pond is part of a park and the water has some chemical in it that makes the water blue so I knew ahead of time I would not be catching food. To my delight I found there are very many bluegills in there and many of them are good sized. I had just purchased an ultralight rod and put on one of my Tica reels from an ice rod. Using a tiny bobber and very light line I have to say this kind of fishing was a blast. Action was as fast as I could handle for hours and it seemed every time I got a different looking gill. Not quite a challenge or anything but definatly a morale boost and I plan on taking my nephews there who are just getting old enough to fish. I just thought I would post to encourage others to not always overlook these tiny ponds because there is some fun to be had.
