      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 .

I fish a lake here in Michigan where it is not all that uncommon to catch 13" gills. I don't have a picture of that fish, but i wish i had. If I get any big ones this winter I will most definately post them for you all to see.

I was with a guy on a private lake fishing Crappies and watched him catch and release a 19"...you could fit a beer can in its mouth. I personaly caught and released a 17" that night and wanted to take it home but the agreement was no keeping or pictures to prove anything. That way everyone will think I'm b.s.ing is what he said.

Rope: The only bad part is that i live close to the Wisconsin border and some guys from down there come up here every day for like a 3 week stretch and keep everything that they catch. I am worried that my favorite lake is going to be desimated in no time at all seeing as the lake is only a little over 500 acres. But i do agree that i am lucky to have such a fishery near me.
