      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 .

Drift Sock

Recommended Posts

Heading to mille lacs for the first time in a few days and have been reading a lot about drift socks in the forum. We do not have one and I was just wondering if it is an absolute must. I realize that it depends on the wind speed but would we be able to get along without one even in a decent breeze? Are there usually places where you can fish successfully out of the wind? Thanks

Mille Lacs seems to be extremely unpredictable. Winds could come up at anytime. Highly recommend a drift sock.

I to have used thing like bucketts and coats. I purches 2 drift socks and they really help slow me down.

If you want to improve the 5 gallon bucket thing, cut a hole in the bottom about 4 inches in diameter.

It's not a must, but I have one big one and might get another because it makes it so much easier to drift.
