      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 .

Forget those expensive fishing trips all over creation.

Here's what ya do: Get yourself an old wooden rowboat. It doesn't have to be wood but wood lends a certain nostalgic feel to the whole event. Next, find a good sturdy cane pole. It should be AT LEAST 1 1/2 diameter (2 inch is much better) down at the butt end and roughly 12 feet long. Now wrap that butt end with a good commercial friction tape ... go up the pole about 2-3 feet, depending upon your reach, and wrap some more friction tape. Tie some heavy-weight line to the end of the pole. The line length will depend upon the depth of that poor excuse for a lake you'll be fishin'. Bait. Ya gotta have good bait. I've found bread balls dipped in bacon grease seem to work well. And don't forget that big ol' bobber and enough weight to get that bread ball to the bottom. OK, you're ready to hit the water. Row out a ways and drop the anchor. Put a bacon grease soaked bread ball on the hook and cast the mess out there. Now wait. Pop open a beer or soda ... open up that book on how to prepare a good spongy carp for the grill ... and wait. Sooner (one can only hope) or later a big ol' pile of scales and fin will suck up that bread ball. Now the real fun begins! Ever try to land a 20+ pound carp with a cane pole? There's no better fight! Just hang on and don't snap your pole. The carp will tire after going around in 30 or 40 circles and you can eventually haul it up (providing one or more of the circles didn't involve your anchor rope). Net that puppy ... toss it in the wash tub (the technical name for a carp live well) and ball your hook for another fightin’ sucker.

Clean the carp and cut it into steaks about 2 1/2 inches thick, wrap 'em in foil and freeze 'em. Take the steaks to work and hand 'em out to all those lazy yahoos wantin' you to bring 'em some fresh fish filets. Heck, even tell 'em its salmon you caught during a great trip on the Columbia River in WA. Their reaction after chowin’ it down, (trust me on this one) will be priceless. (By the way, they won’t be askin’ you for more fish.)
