      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 .

Nelson Lake ND Report

Recommended Posts

We made our annual trip out to Nelson Lake in ND. For those who don't know. It is a small powerplant lake that stays open year round. It is about 25 miles north of Bismarck. We fished last Friday and Saturday. Friday was 60 degrees and no wind; the fishing was excellent with about 70 fish caught. No huge fish, our biggest was about 4.5lbs. Saturday they shut down the plant and the water temp dropped about 10 degrees. The fishing was much slower; about 30 fish caught. The wind pickup up to about 30mph so we went up to the Garrison dam tailrace which sits down in a canyon and is protected from wind. We caught 1 walleye and 7 trout. The biggest trout was about a 5lb brown so that was a fun change of pace. Fishing should be excellent over the next month or so. The water is low because they just drew it down, but it should fill up again with all of the snow out there. If you've got the itch for some open water fishing I'd recommend a trip to Nelson.
