      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 .

Net size

Recommended Posts

I need a new net, and am scouring the 'net for some good prices and to see what is out there.

What size of net do I need for walleye/bass fishing? I want to be sure that I am getting something to handle the networthy fish, but it also needs to be able to handle a good sized esox when I run into one on the water.

What size of net do I need for this?

I think you've answered your own question. You need a big net if you want to bag a good sized muskie without stressing yourself and the fish IMO.

Sound like you really need two nets. I don't recall the size, but I have one net that is perfect for walleye and bass(20"x20"?) and then I have a monster net for pike and muskies.(30"x40"?) I even have a smaller one I use in the spring for crappie fishing.

I don't like having that big net in the boat unless I know I'm going to need it.

like rods, reels, and line; do not think there is a one size fits all.

Check out the new folda nets. They are somewhat pricey but they take up less room and you can whip them out in a flash. Beckman makes some nice nets and they are good quality and last as well. Tunrevir~

DOnt be so concerned about the size of the opening--but the depth and the quality of the net itself, a smaller head is easier to pull through the water when netting. A telescopic long handle is a must, no plastic anywhere (especially collars) on the net EVER--it will break, good luck
