      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 .

minnesota state ice tournament

Recommended Posts

Are you talking about Minnesota State University's tournament? I believe it is known as the "Big Bobber Ice Fishing Contest". I'm not sure, they have last years contest listed on their web page. I missed it last year and didn't hear how it went. I was planning on attending this year.

Anybody else go last year? I wonder what the turnout was?

I took 51st place and got a Goose picture print. I would say about 300 people fished it on Lake Washington last year. The entry fee was $30. I think the prizes could have been better, but Kruger Farms had some great stuff to look at. I am hoping to see more sponsers this year giving away BIGGER BETTER STUFF!

Well the turnout is obviously nothing like the one on Lehomme Dieu or Leech. Hopefully, it becomes an annual thing that draws fishermen from all around the southern part of the state. The fishing may never be that good on Washington but its still fun to get together with a few hundred people and fish. I'm sure if more people come, sponsors will donate more, thus prizes will be better!
