      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 .

Your favorite fish to target poll.

Recommended Posts

I don't want this to turn into a fight between whose fish of choice is better. Just want to get a feel for what the average FMer is about. I'll start. List your targets in order.

1. Walleye

2. Crappie

3. Sauger

4. Big gills

5. Bass- I don''t target them often, but their fun.

6. Pike as long as thier big, cant stand the pesty little snot rockets.

7. Jumbo perch, Should be higher on list, but haven't had any luck with them on the lakes I fish. Just the small ones.

8. All other fish are welcome if they put up a big fight, but never targeted.

Well I will be honest I really don't target any particular species. Whatever happens to bite first is what I will target for the day. At least until I catch a different species and then I will target them. I just fish to fish but if you want to know what I prefer to catch I will tell you. A nice tan and some fish. To me as long as you don't get skunked it's a great day on the water. smile

Again that is just me, I'm not making fun of the thread or the people posting on it. I just fish for anything is all.

    • 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.
    • saw one gal here today
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance    
    • He's that Guy?  The one guy in the world that doesn't like BACON?     May be he's Moslam and can't eat it?
