      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 .

Thanks Ken!.....they sure were!I had 3 in front of me for the whole hour!....just a cold ,crisp morning in the bog!....I spent the hour in the hopes that maybe a marten might make an entrance, but nope, just the birds....no one else around this morning...didn't look like any recent tracks from vehicles at all on the S.Admiral from today(6" of fresh powdery snow and no problem for a truck anyways grin)...that boreal forest sure is quiet, pristine country....there was a bazillion wolf tracks running the road from just last night or maybe a few hours before I got there....they found a plastic garbage bag of someones venison scraps and it was ripped apart and strewn over a 2 block area....those wolves don't mess around! grin...also watched where a moose ran down the road for a mile .....wolves were probably after it...would love to get a photo of a moose in winter!....just a quiet beautiful morning in the bog...a great Christmas present...just nice to be there!...also checked out the Owl Ave station ...the chickadees are using it and a few redpolls....only ben out a week so takes some time....

Johnny I was down there by 8:00 a.m too. No owls though! I also saw all the tracks on S. Admiral. Looks like there was quite a canine party down there and boy did they dig for those bags. I followed the trail into the woods for a bit.

I saw a bobcat today too. I'm not going to post the location on here since I beleive trapping season is still open for them but if you want to know where its feeding drop me an e-mail. The snows so deep it could hardly move. I was driving to fast and couldn't stop my car quick enough and skided right past it. By the tme I backed up it was taking cover in a bunch of brush and must have hid under the snow. I saw its head pop out once but I didn't get a shot of it. I might have to bring it a little more vension to feed on. Here I thought I was the only one down there today..lol

Great captures, Jonny! Sounds like you had a great day. I spent mine driving to the Twin Cities. frown

Jay, that bobcat would be quite a score. Those wild cats are WARY.
