      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 .

My parents have been helping me paint my house this fall. With that, I missed September fishing. Told them I was taking a day off and taking them fishing. Dad came down with a cold and skipped out but Mom was game. Took her to Big Sand by Park Rapids. She got five walleyes, four of them between 17-18.5 inches and one 22.5 (released). She also got a largemouth and a perch. All I could muster was a rock bass and a largemouth. Depth finder went kaput on me half way throught the day and I had to guess where I was. Great to see her have fun although she could have been a little more graceful.

"Son, maybe you should try minnows."

" Not that minnow, he doesn't look good enough to eat."

"Would you like for me to pick a minnow out for you?"

"My, Greg you're getting really good at netting these walleyes!"

"But Greg that really was a nice rock bass."

"I really wish you could get one, but if you did catch some walleyes we might be out of minnows."

"Oh, it's just a little one...maybe you should get the net though."

Hope she enjoyed the day...it may be her last for a while.

I took my mom a few years back out with us and she got bored reading her book and fighting with the dog for the front of the boat...FYI that was HIS spot in the boat. She saw me casting raps and thought she'd give it a shot. So I rigged up her rod and I hear how do you cast this rod. She has my rod and reel about 150 bucks in her hands and she proceeds to learn how to cast. Well she ended up getting all the fish that day. Lots of fun and hillarious when she would get a bite.

Good Job on getting Mom in the boat. Trying to get my Mother to fish is like watching 2 blind goats trying to drive a dumptruck. It just dont make any sense so I leave her home.

I suppose your brother is too busy playing poker? Great story,I'm sure you would let your mom in the boat again and let her out fish you everytime. Not too many guys get too take mom fishing.

My mother would go with me about 4 times a year. She has since lost her quick battle with cancer and I would gladly redo every one of those days in the boat with her. Even when I had to bait her hook and take off the crappies and sunnies. Any day on the water with family and friends is worth it no matter how much fishing they do and how little I get to do.
