      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 .

Distracted by bright shinny things??

Recommended Posts

Sometimes just when I think I got a plan,something bright and shinny comes along to distract me.Today it was Whitefish,cisco,tullibee,what ever you call them.I was just planning on marking some spots b-4 green froze up and doing a little fishing,but more marking and moving.When I came up on a rubble pile there they where,every where,6ft of water and hundreds of them.ciscoes.bright shinny and everywhere(they are smoking as I type this).Now for you walleye experts here is my thinking.In a few weeks are not the walleye going to be right there eating the smallest minnows you can put on your hook?Or is my thinking wrong,I do very well in my other spots an have never even considered fishing here in the winter but have fished that shallow and done well.Any input would be appreciated.I am thinking a plain hook and a tiny crappie minnow?

This also made me reconsider my first target for crappie and made me realize why last year I had to use the smallest crappie minnows in the bucket to get the crappies.

jdrummer.This is a lake that I have fished since I was 5 yr old and just in the last 5 years have found out some new things about this lake and looking for more.This is a very fickle lake,and I think if I fish it every day for the next 20 years I will still have plenty to learn.My find of these cisco made me look at a part of the lake that I never considered fishing,and have never seen ice houses.But will try a house on this year.My other spots produce more fish than I need but some times I just need to learn more,not just catch fish.

thanks
