      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 .

Walleye tournament

Recommended Posts

I just got this in a email did not see anything posted here so I figured to post it up. This is all I know about it...

Jesse and Rachel Yerbich are looking for anglers. The couple, formerly of Bemidji, are hosts of the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Walleye Classic on Lake Bemidji later this summer, and they need competitors.

"We have 70 slots and only eight filled so far," Rachel Yerbich said last week.

The couple lost their 4½-month-old son, Benjamin, to SIDS last September.

They came up with the idea to hold some kind of tournament to benefit SIDS research and other SIDS families and raise awareness about SIDS.

"We thought about having a golf tournament, but Jesse doesn't golf," Rachel said. "But he does fish."

So they decided to have a fishing tournament to raise money. The tourney will be 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 11 on Lake Bemidji. Registrations are $200 per two-person team. To register or for more information, see www.sidswalleyeclassic.com, go to Gander Mountain in Bemidji or call 406-262-7373.

Besides the tournament, there will be other activities for kids, including a duck pond, ring toss, face painting and bingo. The Yerbiches have since moved to Montana, but they will return for the tournament that they say will honor their son and other infants who have died from SIDS.

Are there any updates on if this event is still a go, and how many boats are entered at this time?

The event is still a go as of now I believe. I do not have exact numbers, but I know there are quite a few spots open yet.
