      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 .

Today's Outing

Fished with Bruce Ristow for 2.5 hours today. We got a late start. On water about 9:45AM

the sun was up and the skies were robbins egg blue. It got down to 21 degrees here last night.

Bruce had be talking about a stream in Southwestern Vernon county that had some privately made lunker bunker structures. They were 25 years old.

Bruce had been raving about this water for a while so we hit it today. I generally don't like lunker structures. They feel too artificial and there is no real reading of water involved.

The trout were hard to come by. Bruce had 2 to hand. About a 14er and 16er. I landed three. About a 17er/14er/10er.

In the middle of our journey there was a massive beaver dam. This appeared to stop any type of up/down stream movement on the water.

The photo above is where there was no lunker structure.

My experience today with lunker structure just solidifies my dislike for it.

Beautiful picture, it looks like there will be some difficult casting in there during summer wink Did you fish above the beaver [PoorWordUsage]? I thought recall reading something of yours about large fish near beaver dams.

Anyone else think that it's a little crazy that the word for a beaver's home, even when spelled correctly, is censored? Apparantly a blockage of water is poor word usage. wink

there are two spellings of the word, one is slang, and the other is home to beavers wink. so the slang spelling should be censored, but the other should not be.

nice photo, now I want to go trout fishing.
