      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 .

Barbless hooks?

Recommended Posts

Boedigheimer

The fishing on Mille Lacs has been bonkers all season, some slow days, but for the most part its been very good. With all these fish being caught and released its only natural that even with low hooking mortality that its going to add up to alot of dead walleyes, as has recently been seen.

Maybe an option would be to use barbless hooks. A few fish would be lost of course, but if it eliminates a few dead walleyes floating across the lake what the heck?

It would definitely be alot easier to remove a small hook from the esophagus of a big fish if the barb was removed. And I doubt very seriously that the hook just 'works itself out' after stapling the throat shut.

Barbless is the way to go. I have never lost a fish because of a barbless hook. Smallies may be different, but walleye should never wiggle off if you maintain pressure.

I have been to Mille Lacs 2 times this year and have used circle hooks. They have been working great for me. No fish with a hook in the throat. smile.gif
