      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 .

Had a Bone to Pick at Willow (1 pic)

Last time I was out at Willow Creek on my 2nd cast I had this enormous boil. Just by the water it slung I knew it was a decent fish. This came on a Moss Boss and I threw it several dozen times back at the spot where the fish boiled and it never returned.

This morning I grabbed a pannie rod and a bass rod and headed down for 30 minutes. The gills were tearing it up around the dock. Absolutely one after another about 18” under a tiny float with a 1/32 jig and a tiny piece of crawler. Nothing big on the gills, so I grabbed they bass rod. 2nd cast with my firetiger skitter pop and I had a small boil. I made my way to the spot where I had the enormous boil mentioned above and the she hit again on about the 10th cast. Quite a little tussle later and I landed this nice largie. I’ve caught a few largies in the 16” range out there, but I believe this one is my new personal best at Willow Creek. I didn’t have time to dig the tape out of my box, but I would guess it at or a hair over 17”.

Not a monster my any means, but a nice one for Willow. I know there’s much bigger ones in there too.
