      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 .

Public Access Down South

Recommended Posts

I will be moving to Tennessee next spring. I am wondering if anybody knows if Tennessee has public access for shore fishing like Minnesota has, since I don’t not own a boat. I know they only have reservoirs, and not many lakes, which is a big change.

Best thing to do down there is make friends with people that have access to private ponds. There are a ton of big fish in them. There are many public access areas for boats on the rivers and reservoirs along with some of the smaller lakes. A good idea would be to get yourself a small jon boat that would fit in the back of a truck, like a 1236 or 1248. That way you can pull up on smaller bodies of water and get in pretty easy. On my uncle's farm he has a couple jon boats sitting around and we pull them from pond to pond with ATV's.

I have to come back to making friends with access to private ponds though. They are so much fun, and a lot of people have them or know somebody that has one.
