      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 .

went out for a bit today. seen a GIANT northern pike. well over the 30" range. maybe into the 40's. she came back out of the calvert after she tried getting up stream. she may be the same pike (my pb 22lb 5oz (look at dp)) that i caught on feb 3. but i am not saying she is.

after a while i hooked up to a feisty white sucker

Carpmanjake nice pictures. I wouldnt be advertising that you would have tried to catch her if you had a chance they are out of season just to give you a head up.

On a side note I witnessed an odd pair of fish cruising together yesterday. One was a carp 24" range with a pike a liitle longer side by side. Thepike would not leave the carp at all. I seen the pair swim all down the shore and hold up right under the bank. I had the carp pick up my bait but didnt set the hook I didnt want to break this couple up. I would like to see their offspring. lol

i did not try and catch her. but things happen when your fishing. like my 10lb4oz pb walleye, caught in that SAME spot last year, on corn (while i was carp fishing).

and all last spring i was having pike take my nymph flies while i was fly fishing for carp.

i have been seeing this too! except the pike are usually smaller. they patrol the outer perimeter of the carp school. almost like sheep dogs herding sheep. very cool

    • Well, you could be right!
    • Yes, this is great to watch for kids born around '66 still in diapers and missed it on TV! 
    • Only tink bacon is good for are BLT'S.
    • As with most Ken Burns series, it's been very interesting and entertaining to watch. After seeing the same old footage for the last 40 years, the new stuff is facinating.  '66 kid here, it's amazing to me that this occurred during my lifetime. I hope some of folks put your aversion to PBS aside and enjoy  watching some history. Maybe even learning a  thing or two about it. *chuckle*
    • Juice and bear, they are a pair.  Space Aliens and Chiropractic. 
    • We have dish at the lake, and suspend it for 9 months.  Only turn it on in the summer.   5 bucks a month while suspended.  
    • Sometimes you can get a small discount, but buying at a place that also does service might be worth considering....  
    • I've had them most of the summer. The last two weeks I have not seen them.
    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
