      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 .

Huge Muskie Encounter

Recommended Posts

Here is a short clip of a Huge Muskie that interrupted my perch fishing this past Saturday. I have more footage of her on a longer clip as she made (2) drive-by appearances within 20 minutes. When the perch skidaddled the second time I was ready and hit the record button.........good thing I went with that gut feeling!

Enjoy,

I don't have video of it but perch fishing on winnie we had a tightly packed school of 4 or 5 pike come by one time. No interest in our baits or camera, they just slowly cruised though. Very exciting to watch them watch all those pike swim by the camera at one time ...... and made me wonder if there were more on the other side of the camera that I couldn't see.

I am currently using an Aqua-Vu as my black and white set-up and a Seaviewer for my color.

I will try to get the other clip containing the first time I saw her up on YouTube for all to see. I could basically bore you to death with 9" -10" perch clips, but the reaction of the crowd when the missile moves in is PRICELESS!

Here is the clip from the first time she comes by. If you want you can fast forward to 5:25 and watch the perch(bottom left corner) moving in on the jig after it is re-introduced. The quick departure is what alerted that something was up! ENJOY!!

I agree, there are ALOT of perch there, atleast you will have fun catching them, Looks like that girl is still pretty active, wonder if you will get a "bite" when brining in a perch ....

Muddpuppy,

I am using an Aqua-Vu Scout XL with the DVR recorder. It works very well and is quite entertaining.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
