      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 .

The 2009 issue won't be available for a couple months I believe (if you're talking about the In-Fisherman one).

I just bought the 2006 and 2008 Catfish Insiders and they have a lot of good info in them, and I think you can put your order in now for the 2009 issue.

We are a sad lot; years ago(I sound like grumpy old man. "Back in the day....") the cat insider edition seemed like it had more to it. Here we are making a thread waiting in anticipation for a zine the last couple years if you would have torn out the advertising and held it up to a light you might've seen through it. And ya I will be buying another this spring with no one holding a gun to my head; just like the year before, ect. It just seems for a special edition that comes out once a year we should want more for ourselves than a glorified pamphlet/newsletter.

Sorry for being the smelly fart in church, but I just want more for us. I'm hoping to be pleasantly suprised this year.

Ya know .... I wish they would start offering the yearly In Fisherman Insiders Series by species, in DVD format.

I think it would be a hit and for the guys and galls that collect them it would make for a nice clean low mass collection and easy to use on the computer.

What do you guys/galls think of that idea?

Ya the February 2008 Walleye In-Sider I saw looked thin. I picked it up, but did not look in it.

I guess how much can you dig up on catfishing every year that has not been put in print before. New products, some big fish, tried and true techniques. Short of them telling us to get off or arises and go out and fish, you wonder what they will have this year.

Always a good read every year though.

    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.
