      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 .

Cleaning frozen walleyes.

Recommended Posts

don't let them freeze in the first place. empty water softner salt bags work very good for keeping fish in. sometimes freezing can't be avoided, in this case, let them sit in the sink until soft enough to clean.............tom fellegy

don't thaw them directly in the water, put them in a bag first.

Why not put them directly in the water? They came from water in the first place.

If you are on long week or weekend freezing is required to keep fish from spoiling. When I leave say Red lake for home i fill the bucket of fish with water and place in back seat of truck. When you arrive at home they will be ready to fillet. Otherwise when getting home palce in your wash tub in luke warm water until thawed out.

So how long do you leave your fish unfrozen. I was on a 4 day trip to lake of the woods? If it was for 1 night I would have had them in a bucket with water.

Hey, like they say on the Soprano's. "You gota do whatcha gota do"! Some fishing outtings last hours, some last days, keep in water, freeze, thaw, refreeze, what ever! You spent time and money on them, just don't waste um! frown

LOW and Red require you to keep your fish unfrozen in order to be measured. Red is the only lake I've heard of anyone being hassled but any lake with a slot could see you with a ticket for frozen fish.
