      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 .

Buffalo on the fly [updated w/pics 11/25/2008]

Recommended Posts

Lakes are locked up tight and overnight lows are supposed to be at or below 0 degrees (F!) tonight. That's cold enough for me to pack it up and gear up for ice fishing.

Yeah DH. You know this is when I start getting out after them. Maybe next Monday. Warm water discharges!

Now you've piqued my interest. Please share some tactics. I need to catch some of these beasts.

RW, I fish for roughfish all winter long at a couple warm water discharges around Rochester. I've never caught a buffalo thou.

Basically sucker fishing with the same tactics as we do in the spring. 1/2 crawler on the bottom. Nothing too it. Many species of fish are attracted to this warm water. It's nothing to catch 5 species of fish in a hour or so.

JP, that last Buff is a tank. What flies were you getting them on? One of these days I'm going to have to get up there and find some similar water. Looks like you are having way too much fun.
