      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 .

Name of the condition: Dermal Sarcoma

Cause of disease: Virus

What does it look like? Grape cluster like tumor. Walleye dermal sarcoma produces warty growths commonly seen on the fish's skin and fins. Growths are usually gray-white or pinkish in color.

Fish species affected:

This disease is only seen in walleye.

Life cycle:

Infections occur throughout the year but at a higher rate during the walleye's spring spawning season. Walleyes congregate on their spawning grounds and the virus spreads from fish to fish through physical contact.

Where is the disease is found?

Found predominantly in the Upper Midwest and Great Lakes Region. Occurs throughout Minnesota.

Is it safe to eat?

The disease is not known to infect humans. As always, cook fish thoroughly.

How can I prevent the spread?

There are no practical ways to control this disease.

Disposal of unused portions:

Skin of infected walleye should be buried or disposed with household waste. Fish entrails should never be discarded back into the lake.

Random guy

We see that here on Upper Red Lake and nothing to worry about. As summer goes on they become less and less.

I do know when they first showed up it spooked me a little but now I have learned how to skin the fillets around the bumps...so I guess we have got used to the little warts. grin.gif
