      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 .

Perch Trip

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to make my first post a good one I guess and to thank everyone for the great time fishing this weekend. It was great meeting everyone!

A special thanks to Matt, Chris and Josh for the tow to and from the lake on Friday, that was a life saver! And also to Greg, Brandon and Gus for the tips on the "hot spots"!

Finally 15 minutes before we had to pack up and hit the road home, Travis caught his first perch of the weekend! It wasn't the biggest one of the weekend, but he was excited.

Thank you Gus and Nettie at Maple Ridge Resort for the great accomadations. Great place to stay! Look forward to do it again.

Also, Brian, next time I will make sure I pack you a sippy cup! lol

It was nice to meet you three. I knew Travis would get one, he just need time. He is a great kid. He was eager to learn things. You guys sure headed out to the lake early yesterday morning, I set the alarm clock to the wrong time zone so we got a late start. It was a blast out there, I know I will be back.

It was great to meet you all. I hear someone got a monster on Sunday? Any truth to that? I'll put a pic of my biggest I got on Sat. and hope someone can top it!! I ended up w/16 total for Fri/Sat. I hope you all had a good time and look forward to seeing you again. She was just shy of a 2 pounder. smile

walleyechick, We did what we told to do, SPREAD OUT and no leaving the fish houses. Jim the one that got the 1#8 on Saturday, He texted me sunday that he had a 2#, it made the one on sat look small, without see it I told Greg that. As it turned out it was 1#12, 14". Still nice, but not a 2. I get 7, not too far from where you guys were at. We had 13 for the day. The fish at least started to show up on Sunday. The boys with me are pumped about the whole thing and are planning another trip aready without me. I know it was a tough bite, but pleased with what we got.

It was great to meet everyone and see there are other people out there just as crazy about perch. Nice to talk with everyone and might get a few names wrong as I am bad with remembering names.

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college 2 areas, up top and down by river
