      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 .

on the water competition

Recommended Posts

do any of you do little on the water competitions with your buddies? What are your favorites?

We play baseball in my boat an idea i believe that derives from CHM here on the boards - here is how you play

1lb- 1.15 is a single

2lbs- 2.15 is a double

3lbs- 3.15 is a triple

4+ is a home run

that is the basics you can get more complex if you want like catching less than a pound is an out or if you miss a fish it is a strike. Competition brings out the best in you.

So lets hear yours i am looking for some new ones.

Cecil- I think he is saying 1 to 1lb 15 oz.. not 1.15.

My typical bet.. is pretty darn easy.. A signed $1 to the person who catches the largest fish. Cheap, yet something you can dangle in the face of the looser for many years after!!!! I have a collection!

Aha!!! That makes sense! You have a collection of the dollars you have given away? That's nice! smile

On the bright side if you lose, you can say your signature is worth something.

We play fishing poker. Got the idea from this site then modified the rules alittle. everyone puts $5 in the pot. For every fish you catch you get a card. First person to get five cards ends the game. at that time whom ever has the best hand wins. Just because you have more cards doesn't mean you win. For us all fish are worth 1 card exept pike are worth 2 and tulabee are worth 3 cards. However, if you catch an eelapout you have to put your best card in the bottom of the deck. Your buddies pick which card that is, not you. If you catch a pout before you have any cards you atomatically lose! I hate pout!!!

Ooh, that would be fun too. I would play until end of day though and anything over 5 pounds gets you a wild or something.

I'd keep drawing for the whole day, and let you only have 5 cards at a time. I'd hate to lose to someone with 2 undersized fish and a lucky draw. If the fishin is good no less than a full house should win (just like bowling).
