      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 .

Hello there Mr. Curt. I sure miss the fishing up there.. We are a bit short on that down here.. sigh.. Hope with the summer I can make up for it on the river and do some super catting on the MN. I have some sport shows lined up and some fishing seminars for the spring so with any luck, I can hit it hard.

Is there usually a good turnout to the tourney? Any decent prizes? I'm assuming biggest walleye gets the top prize.

If I remember correctly the prizes for first through third are a portable ice house, an auger and a flasher. There's also a trophy for smallest fish and door prizes.

I'm not sure on the specifics but I think the largest (by weight) of any legal fish wins.

Got a report from a buddy fishing the tournament yesterday that several catfish over and around 10 lbs. were caught during the tournament. That's pretty crazy for wintertime

Man I sure wish I could of had made it for that.. I had a real mess going on here so it did not work.. Cast in the winter.. We have been trying to catch cats through the ice for years there but they just would not cooperate. Something must have changed big time to get that many cats eating in that area.??????? Must be all that work going on below the dam?????

Sure was nice to hear that it was a great turn out and it all worked out well. I sure hope they can keep it going on up there.
