      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 .

Mankato Meet (feeler)

Recommended Posts

Myself and MinnesnowtaWild (Jeff) were just curious if there would be any interest in a Mankato meet-up sometime in May. We were thinking about perhaps meeting up and grilling early in the evening and then fishing once it gets dark out. It would be a great way to meet some of you guys on here, and would be a lot of fun as well. I would like to gauge your interest in something like this, so that I can talk to the Mankato Park Board and let them know if and when we would be doing this ... we would probably meet up at Sibley Park or Land of Memories park, as these parks would allow for a number of fishermen(and women smile ) to utilize the area in an efficient, non-crowded manner.

*I had also given a bit of thought towards maybe a half hour or so where we could go around the park a bit and clean up some of the trash that plagues the park, and I think that the Park Board would be a bit more receptive towards the meet if we offered to give back a bit and help clean before we fish.

Any interest fellas?

Well the date is still up in the air, as this is just a feeler (to gauge interest ... see if this is going to be a reality or not). Once we figure out if there is an interest, we can start tossing dates and times around.

*off topic but you're a mankato-an as well? You fish around here much?

Rushing and Klye B would be of great help you guys if you need some insiders on making this work beings they have put on quite a few gatherings june is also a good month . and maybe with rushings connections with justin timberlake he could get him to sing for us before we go out on the river fishing that night. That would top all gatherings just do it rob.

Stam has been tryin to get me to listen to Timberlake for a couple of years now. He is such a big fan the first thing he did with his new boat is to put a sticker of his beloved JT on it.

I just chalked it up to him being an Iowan. I say what ever floats your boat and Timberlake seems to float his!

I tell ya what, Justin is a cool cat. It was nice of him to make it to our gathering a few years ago.

I know someone who was having a ball with him:

I remember that gathering well!!

Besides JT, that was the gathering where Harvey Lee's boat almost got crushed by a tree. Thought I heard the tree was still there.

Stam34... you getta new boat? I got your text and completely forgot about it. If you still have those Ram holders, I'll be more than willing to take them off your hands.

Yeah, Larry hopping on his back and yelling "Justin is bringing sexy back!" as he rode him around the boat landing was definitely a highlight of the gathering.

Yep still there, flew past it on Friday when we took Bob's new "S.S. N'sync" out for a spin.
