      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 .

I know this is going to be a long shot-

but if any one is out fishing on (lake name removed), and lands a fish (probably a pike) that is pulling this rod and reel, It would be greatly appreciated if it were returned.

thanks- Now Im sure you all want the story.

I out today, and had set my rod down, bail open in order to go drill a few holes. once I finished the holes, I returned to where the rod once was, and it was GONE! somewhere out there a poor fish is dragging a pretty decent rod and reel combo behind him.

Well, today I was out, in about the same spot.

I hooked into a nice fish on my jigging rod, and I had my friend go pull up a tip up that was close by to prevent a tangle.

attached to the tip up ( which had not been set off) was a 13 inch perch. tangled around the hook is some blue fishing line, and my rod!

ten minutes later I landed the fish.

here is a parting shot of the release, the recovered rod is clearly shown in the background.
