      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 .

1st Musky!

Recommended Posts

All the work that I put into catching my first musky paid off last night. I caught this 43" chunker with a DB10 cowgirl. I had put in many hours on the water over the last three months and nothing could have prepared me for the boatside hit on a 8 in the dark. I didn't see her come in but felt the hit, set the hook, and the fight was on!

nater - you've been fishing well and fishing hard on a tough lake during a tough season trying to get your first. would have been easy to quit last night when we wanted to but i'm glad we decided to stick it out one more spot.

gotta respect a musky virgin that consistently does good figure 8s after dark after each cast - if you wouldn't have been focused and fishing well you'd have never known she was down there. i honestly thought you were going to go overboard there when she first hit, that was a strong, solid fish and she was ready to rumble. you got your chance, you put her in the net. IT DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER - you earned it, enjoy

Thats funny I caught my first muskie on Saturday as well. Also a 43" at 5:30am on topwater. If I could figure out how to post the picture I would. Congrats, I know how good it feels to get the monkey off your back.

Congrats to you as well! They are definitely getting more active lately. I'm looking forward to the rest of the season and what fall has in store for us fisherman.

I posted my pictures on the Photobucket HSOforum and then you copy in the link it creates on the site. It's free to sign up. I'd like to see it.
