      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 .

Zumbro Report (8/9/07)

Recommended Posts

Tyler Holm

Had the pleasure of taking my wife out fishing last night at Lake Zumbro for the Hooked on Fishing (HOF) League. Another hot and muggy night, but it was still comfortable to be out there. The recreation traffic was at its expected levels so it was nice to fish in areas that provided a little protection.

The bluegill fishing was pretty decent and the bass seemed to be around every corner. For the most part the crappies steered clear of out boat thou, but many others found them.

Most of our bluegills came about 3’ under a float on a small jig and a small piece of nightcrawler. Areas need wood or rocks were best, but we caught them in all kinds of areas. Several came on plastics as well freelining.

We gave the crappies an honest effort for about an hour, but only came up with one. In an effort to keep Michelle’s interest up we resorted back to bluegill fishing. A dozen or so smallies up to 15” were caught along with 1 sheephead, 1 green sunfish, and a few small largemouths.

We didn’t win the event, but anyday on the water with my wife is a victory in its own right.

I too was out on the lake last night, though I didn't know about the event that was going on. Had a great night much like you Tyler with the bluegills along shorelines and trees. I caught a niece 17" largie which was the highlight of the night. I caught one smaller crappie and I think between my wife, father in-law and myself caught a few dozen gills between 7-915. So a pretty good night.
