      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 .

Things started off fast, boated a 17" eye within a couple minutes and then it got painfully slow for about a hour or so then picked up a few shorties, just couldn't get a decent one, so off to bottom bouncing and bang theres one 16 1/4" and bang theres another 17 1/2" then nothing and so I pulled up one rod and put down some lead core and a tiger pattern shad rap and bang a 21 1/2 " which I released but not before I took a photo, check out its weird eye? PICT0148.jpg picked up one more shorty and called it a day, I'll be back on the water in the morning. Finished the day with three decent ones and a nice releaser plus caught a couple nice smallies and of course sheep! cool.gif

What a beatiful morning to be on the river and the fish were biting so so, nice to see Sandmannd and Big Wade out there, had a goood time talking with you guys, so did that spot pan out for you? I picked up one more straight out from the buffs before I split, not as nice as the other three but still a 17", heck if I wouldn't of tossed the two legal but smaller ones I'd of had my limit! cool.gif

Walli,

It was nice visiting with you again. That spot didn't pan out for us, lots of bites but couldn't pinpoint the hook-set, except for Sandman's lawn chair he got on a spinner and then his blue gill. Have to only guess it wasn't our day, but then again it was sure nice to get out on the river again, talking to you was proof there are still fish there, so I just have to get out and try again. Hope to see you out there again soon.

Hey Walli,

Nice seeing you again. Thanks for the pointers and letting us fish along side you. Nice to get tips from a river pro like you. I really liked when you showed us your catch and all I could hold up was my zebra muscle covered lawn chair. Oh yea Wade, you forgot about the 10 lb log I hooked into, that was a nice bite. I think my favorite was yelling for the net only to have the lawn chair come up. It sure did fight though. We both saw a flash of a fish on that one and then it dove down so my guess is it hooked me into the chair since I don't think they usually bite on crawlers.

Ah dang, that just reminded me of the one time I thought I hooked fish and when I finally brought it out, it was a nother fishing rod...Weird thing was it was swimming and fighting and then nothing, but dead weight after I was yelling for the net. call it a magic trick, but I never yell for the net anymore. I just keep the net close by.

We were out Sunday morning as well. Boated 4 walleyes and 1 sauger, all running shad raps on lead core. Nothing on live bait though, the bait bite for me has come to a screeching halt, seems they are on more of a plug bite as of late. At least in the spots I fished Friday and Sunday...Might get out Tuesday evening for a while.
