      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 .

Went fishing out of Hillman's and had 2 sleepers rented from Kelly from Wed afternoon to Sat morning. 5 guys in the 2 shacks on Wed and three more came up Thursday afternoon. Weather was cold but not too bad and the fishing was ok. We caught 8 keeper eyes and 3 crappies before the 3 guys showed up on Thursday. They got up just in time for the fish fry. We all got full on the fish, spuds and beans. Nothing like fresh fish. \:\)

Things got a little cloudy after that \:\/ ( alcohol and the fact that the houses were a little over a half mile apart) so I can't really give you an exact count on the number of walleyes that we caught the rest of the time but I will tell you that we did alright and we did release some that were over the slot and some that were too small to keep. I think the majority of us managed to go home with a limit of eyes. We did end up with 10 crappies the largest barely beating out a couple of others at 15 1/2 inches. We also caught some perch and 3 northerns with the largest northern being at 40 inches and as fat as can be! I was the one that managed to catch that hog and it was pure luck since I had 4 or 6 lb line on, it was hooked in the corner of the mouth away from the line cutting teeth and it tangled up every other line in the house. That gave me quite a rush. cool.gif

All said and done we drank more then we should have, ate like kings and managed to catch some fish.

Thanks to Kelly and Jon for putting up with us. Nobody in our group had any complaints about the accommodations. Very sorry to hear about your friends dog.

Slabfesters sorry I didn't make it but I couldn't convince any of my friends to stay. Sounds like you had a lot of fun even without me. \:D
