      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 .

Good ole time on Harriet!

So I finally drag my buddy (who fishes about once every 2 years) out to Harriet with me tonight to try to tangle with some bass. We are throwing plastic worms and about an hour into our adventure he yells "I've got something on! It feels big!" Sure as hell a couple seconds later it jumps out of the water and its a musky! He's got about the most lightweight rig on as you can imagine and this thing looks like its about to snap his rod. After jumping about 4 times and thrashing around for a good 5 minutes or so the musky was finally getting worn out. Unfortunately we didn't have a net at all (as we were expecting some small bass) so one of us was gonna have to go in and get it. Since he had the rod (and camera phone) in his hands I jumped in to get it off the hook and above the water for a quick pic. Meanwhile a group of about 10 people from the walking trail have gathered around us to watch while I'm chasing around this musky in the shallows. Finally got ahold of the bugger and pulled it out of the water just long enough to get a quick picture (see below). I thought he'd be too exhausted to swim off right away so I held him in the water for a bit but he was pretty antsy and took off with plenty of energy so I'm almost positive someone else will have the joy of hauling him in again someday. We went out hoping to catch a bass or two and ended up with a story that we'll be telling years from now. What a time!

Very cool! Harriet gave me my first legal musky of my life. This was years ago, and I was doing the same thing you were-throwing a plastic worm for bass. It was a knee shaker for me.
