      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

New PB for a fellow FMer and more

Recommended Posts

Musky fishing has been pretty fantastic the past month. I can't remember a time when it has been so consistent, so we are really enjoying this, and milking it for all it's worth. Catching fish just about every trip out for the past month or so. Lots of multiple fish days as well. Bucktails (dark) going fast over sharp breaklines and mid-lake structure have been producing the best. Daytime has been better than nighttime, which has been great. Converting fast following fish at the boat has been incredibly dependable, and this has been how we have been getting the vast majority of them.

Just had a three fish day with a couple more opportunities. Fellow FMer Travis Hersleff topped things off with a new personal best. This fish came in at moonset chasing a spinnerbait. It actually ate after a few boatside turns, loaded up the rod, and then popped loose in the first second or two of the fight. Then it just sat there next to the boat. It was first dark, but just a bit too dark for me to see what was going on from the back of the boat. Travis was thinking quick, and I just watched as he started a new set of ovals, and said rather excitedly..."it's just sitting, here it's back on's hot right on it....I'VE GOT IT AGAIN!"

I dove for the net and we had it in short order. Do we give muskies too much credit??? This fish was super hot, or just really super stupid. Either way, it was a heckuva lotta fun! Wish they behaved like that a whole lot more often. Congrats Travis! Here he is with the 48.5 incher.


and subsequent release...

Wow that was fun Tim! You did an awesome job of keeping us on the fish all day! Most exciting and most stupidest fish I've ever caught. That fish did an awesome job of scaring the [PoorWordUsage] out of me for sure though. For a new PB and a first night fish, it couldn't have gone any better. Thanks for your help. We'll see you again soon!
