      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 .

SLAB from Friday night

Recommended Posts

On Friday night I caught by far the biggest crappie of my life. It was a fat 15 1/4 inches. Caught it about 30 minutes after sunset on a rattling jigging spoon tipped with a minnow head. I have never mounted a fish before but this one is going to the taxidermist. I caught him through the ice in the Alex area. Here are a couple of pics:

Nate for some reason the word filter doesn't like your URL link. If you want to you can email it to me and I can post it for you.

Great fish by the way!

Congratulations on the nice fish Nate. Many productive panfish waters around the Alex/Glenwood area.

What a way to kick off the ice season, and we're not even into December yet!

she's a beauty. you know that just means its all downhill from here right?

Pfffffff. The party has only just begun. Now if your wife would let you off your leash once in a while we could get out after them together. wink

Hopefully I will make it out in the metro area this weekend! Things should be in good shape soon with this cold weather.

Did you weigh her? I caught 15.5" about three years ago and put her back. I got a photo with it first that didn't turn out real great, but I always thought about a graphite mount from the photo.
