      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 .

By the way this board is going, I would say pretty slow.

But! get up and have some fun. Who knows, you could get in on some good fish.

Like they say, a bad day of fishing is still sure better than a good day at work. IMO tongue.gif

went out last night and caught 9 walleyes but the weather was horrible and we only fished from 7 30 to 10 00. The biggest was 26 1/2 and we only got 2 keepers but it was a good time for the most part. Heading back out today hopefully

The Grebe

We were up yesterday and got into the perch, lots of little ones..had to really work for the jumbos, but it was fun doing it. Artificals out fished live bait by alot! We were kinda monitoring the other boats.

The wind was really kicking and it was hard to hold, for us anyways. One time we thought we had really dug in, we had..the anchor got hooked around a huge cable and we had to fight that thing for about a half hour before we were able to get loose....up it would come, then down it would go...finally with cranking and tugging we got it to the surface and got ourselves free...I wasn't about to give up my anchor without a fight!

The anchor deal was the first thing....then we are sitting there fishing, minding our own business and a boat with two young 20 something lads pulls up, anchors into the wind and within 5 minutes with the whole of Mille Lacs lake out there for them, one of the nimrods casts about a 4 pound orange beetle spinner right into our boat!

It wasn't the wind, the wind couldn't have moved that thing!

I had serious thoughts about whipping out my Buck knife and cutting it off....using it for an anchor to help us stay put! I opted to just ignore it for a minute or two, let em sweat...then I just plopped it back over the side...the fella did apologize, but if that thing would have hit me in the head? I would probably be drinking soup through a straw right now! grin.gif

All in all it was fun and I really didn't get angry with that young fella with the bad aim...I was just puttin on...food for thought.

Gotta go up again next week-end, maybe the wind will cooperate a litte better....which reminds me, I best go buy me one of them 400 pound Mille Lacs anchors.

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
