      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 .

Made a couple trips fishing this past week

Recommended Posts

Was able to make a few trips this past week and get some decent fishing done. On Wed., I made a quick, couple hours trip over to Johnson's. Fishing was pretty good for no longer than I was there. I managed 3 keepers and a few shorts. My best friend made the trip up from KS on Thursday to help me pour jigs and part of the deal was I would take him fishing while he was here. So after helping me pour over 3000 jigs on Friday, we made a mad dash to catch a few saugers on Saturday morning. We only had til 10am to fish cause I had a wedding in the afternoon. We did pretty good and brought home 7 keepers for our efforts. Scott even managed his 1st ever Nebraska MA. He got a 21 1/4", 3#8oz Sauger that he is going to have mounted. We were throwing jigs tipped with plastics. I was finally able to give my NEW Wally Special jighead a good workout and man does that jig work good around rocks and in current. Now it's back to the OL' Bump&Grind, I only got about 3000 jigs to paint and another 3000 more to pour!

Nice. My weekend was spent doing "family" things that didn't include fishing. I appreciated the text. That is a nice, nice sauger.

Are we still on for Sherman on Thursday? What jigs can you have by then? I know this is late notice, but I would buy 1/4 and 1/2 oz of your Wally Special in white and chartreuse. 25 of each weight and 50 of each (white) (chartreuse)?

If you can't have them done by Thursday, I will just cut you a check and you can mail them sometime before my Canada trip in May?

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.

    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
