      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 .

New member from Zimmerman here---

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone, just wanted to introduce myself to my fellow Gator Jabbers-

We are fairly new to the Zimmerman area and live just nw of town on 277th. On the weekends we are usually at my parents cabin up in outing, north of crosby, which is where I grew up. I am 35 as of yesterday and hunt and fish more than anyone I know! lol

I see there is at least one other Zimmermanite here- Hello-

I tried out Sandy lake tonight with no luck. Didn't see a thing but was only spearing from 2-4. Caught a 3 lb bass on a tip-up, but that was the only action i had. There was a max of 4 inches of ice and it was cracking like mad. That and with the fact that the sun was out and there is no snow I think is a problem right now.

Does anyone know how they are doing on little elk? I tried it once last winter but it is seriously murky!

Well, sure we'll be chatting as I love these forums!

I forgot to mention that tonight was my first trip out with my new spear. It is actually not new, just new to me. My favorite uncle made it back in the 40's and it has been hanging in my cousins garage since he died in 1985. for many years I have been working him over for this spear and last year on the last day of spearing season he surprised me with it.

I'll get a pic of it here eventually-

Anyone else using antique hand-me-downs? lol

Elwood,

I might give it a try tomorrow evening. I have the crappy blue portable if you see one out there. It serves the purpose, but is on the chopping block-

First ice? Heck, there is still open water! lol

Thanks guys,

I've seen you on there Cherokee, I'll have to watch myself around you know! lol

Trav, we are talking about bowsite.commm, it is a bowhunting community similar to this, with some seriously diehard liberals on the community forum that constantly need to be kept out of trouble! Which is my full-time job! lol

Work is getting in the way of spearing this afternoon! [PoorWordUsage]!

I hear you on the work getting in the way. Made plans for this weekend but it seems we will be working Saturday. Better this than no business.

I agree with you on the lib thing. I just let you take care of them as you do a great job.
