      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 .

80 degrees and a 5 pounder

Recommended Posts

We got out early today and temps were close to 80 so I threw the poles in the car off to school I went. We got out at noon and I got to the pond by 2 or so. No wind...high sun...water crystal clear. I figured at the very least it was a nice day to get out and wet a line. I haven't fished since August when football started...so it was a great way to waste some time.

Threw on a white 4 blade spinnerbait and went to work. Normally I don't bother casting to the middle of the pond toward deeper water...just cast parallel to the shore but it's been cold here lately so I thought I'd try a little deeper after my casts down the shoreline produced nothing. I was slow rolling it back to shore when WHAP!!!!! Only bite I got...but I made it count. Last two fish I've caught from this little pond add up to 12 pounds.

Other picture is my son who caught this sunnie on a tube jig under a bobber smile He's quite a little fisherman for a 3 year old.
