      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 .

starting to dream about the clicker

Recommended Posts

Yeasterday I drove over the minnesota river by Jordan and looked at the river and saw snowmachine tracks and all I could think of was how great it will be to get the boat on the riv and then the clicker went off in my head. set the hook and now I got a nice flattie on drag singing my favorite song, keep him out of the timber, turn him before he hits it.now just a bit more play him out, wow what a beauty, a few photos, release,and start the process all over again.

This seems to happen to me every time I go over that river.

Man I love that feeling. I better pay attention to driveing or I'll be in the ditch at least I'll be by the river grin

Lol. I hear ya' Elwood. Yesterday I took a peek at my summer cat gear and the first thing that came to mind when looking at my reels was the clicker screaming at me....the next thing that came to mind is what gear I need want for this spring! I'm beginning to show the signs of the "open water itch." wink

I have been going CRAZY lately. Been buying all my supplies lately and have gone to multiple different sporting goods stores in the last week. Just got my Catfish Insider and have read it page for page and now I just have to sit and wait until spring.

Thats pretty early. I'm wondering if he meant the Catfish Connection catalog....

IF ANYONE CAN CONFIRM IF THE INSIDER IS OUT... PLEASE SHARE THE GOOD NEWS.

I am too busy ice fishing yet to be thinking of open water fishing. I enjoy the seasons as they come and when the next season comes I will enjoy that one as well. I like hard water fishing just as much as I like open water. And the transition inbetween seasons, I will get stuff ready. I will also sneak out for some early, or late open water fishing to Redwing to keep me satisfied in long transitions. I will also spend a little time with the family to make up for the hot bite.

Starting around Valentines Day, I'll sit in the hot tub and tie a line to the dog's collar. That little yorkie can really give the E-Cat and the Penn 320 a workoutastrosmiley.gif

Elwood, maybe think about making a mix tape/cd; Sounds of Clicker. Could maybe have all different types of clickers and varying speeds. You could sell it it any reputable gas stations right next to song bird and/or polka cd's. $9.95...

    • The only thing to use them for, If I had one!  
    • Utube Randy Newberg spring bear hunts. He has a ton of DIY info on spring bear hunting
    • I've never used electric jacks, or hydro. I've heard they are pretty nice, and guys like them. It will be interesting to see how you feel about them after a season or two. I'd like to hear your input on them after you've used them awhile.
    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
