      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 .

Your typical Burntside laker (pic included)

Hey all:

OK, it may not be quite typical, but this is a laker Surface Tension iced during last year's Bash. It's a 12-lber.

We'd somehow been able to escape the crush of HQ for a few hours, and we headed to a knife-edge main lake point that had huge boulders in 40 FOW surrounded by 65 to 100 FOW. I'd caught two 12-lbers there before, and had had a five fish day through the ice.

We spent three hours fishing there with almost nothing on the electronics. It was 2 p.m., and we knew we had to get back to HQ for the 3 p.m. drawing.

S.T. was in his portable about 40 feet from me, and we hollered and agreed to start wrapping it up. A few seconds later, after he'd dumped his minnow bucket and followed the bait column down with his lure, he got hit and told me to get my camera.

It was the biggest fish of the day. It was also this photo that earned Frank his best nickname ever. Flopsy. I tried for Smiley, but you can see from the pic why THAT one wouldn't fly. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Figured it was the appropriate post and pic for the 10,000-post milestone, considering how much time I spend on Burntside after lakers.

Is it bad that I noticed his beard matched his hat before I even looked at the fish? grin.gif That's either sheer coincidence or excellent coordination!
