      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 .

Weekend plans.......roll call!

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Many are headed deer hunting I'm sure......what are the plans?

Me...weather permitting, I'd really like to head out. Maybe trolling, or maybe try the QS rig approach. Not sure yet. The 20+mph winds with the 35 degree temps forecasted for Saturday are a bit discouraging. I'll be in the metro area regardless.

Whatever you do; please put safety first....be it woods or water. To use the Boy Scout motto...Be Prepared.

Planning on fishing the metro hard all weekend, not sure where yet. Got casting setups, trolling setups, all ready to go.

There's a big girl who tried for my pike who i'm pretty sure i'm gonna go chase for a while. ;-)

No fishing for me this weekend. Instead probably drinking with friends, and probably way more than I'd like to. When you aren't around them on the weekend for 3 months straight because you're fishing, I expect to be on the receiving end a lot while playing drinking games.

I do hope to get in 1 more fishing outing this year though before I hang it up. Unlike many of you I don't partake in the frostbite.

Will get on WBL this afternoon with pops. Water temps should still be upper 40s after the recent warm weather so I'm anticipating an active bite! Be careful tomorrow guys! NW winds at 22mph.

Good luck to all who get out and brave the elements for muskies with this weather!

I still have a doe tag and don't think I could miss deer opener for anything. And if a really nice buck walks by my brother might be nice enough to let me use his tag since we'll be hunting together.

I have never gotten frostbite fall fishing?

Frostbite is how I refer to ice fishing. I'll fish late fall usually, up to the point where you have to dip the rod in the water to de-ice the guides. The boat has been winterized, so any fishing would be out of a 14ft aluminum cartop powered by a 25lb electric trolling motor. On a light wind day it'll be alright for a small lake, but no big lakes and no windy days for me.

All i'm going to throw is a squirrely bert.

from now until it gets dark, or until I get too cold.

Going out solo and without a net, I'd rather see fish today than catch them probably.

ah who am i kidding, I'll try and come back with some stories.
