      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 .

walleye numbers.

Recommended Posts

I read something in an outdoor magazine( not sure I can say the name) the other day and I thought it was very interesting. I think It said that during the year there is about 14 million (I dont have the magazine so Im not 100% sure on this number but I think its right) harvestable walleyes in Minnesota lakes combined. Out of those 14 million, 3-4 million are actually harvested each year. I took this to mean that the walleye population has to be way over that 14 million number. Kind of makes a guy feel like a chump when theres so many fish and I catch so few grin

there were other numbers givin in the same artical like out of all the lakes in MN there are only so many that are considered walleye lakes. I just thought that it was cool to see those numbers.

Anybody else have any interesting numbers on this line of thinking?

I find it interesting looking at the numbers of walleyes netted and size that the DNR posts on their lakefinder site. The lake I fish all the time they did'nt catch any over 15inches and I catch a lot of 17-20 inch fish in that lake. It just shows how netting isnt a exact science. You never know whats lurking down there. One of the locals in our area caught a 19inch crappie off my father-inlaws dock this spring in a lake that you are lucky to catch a 10 inch. I thought they were drinking too much green coolaid until I saw it for myself. I wonder if the dnr only nets at a certain time of the year of if they do it all summer? Does anyone know.
