      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 .

Cat Fish - New to this.

Recommended Posts

The_Lee

I have never gone cat fishing before, I just got heavy into fishing last year with my focus on trout, walleye, and northern.

I was down in New Orleans this last fall for a few days and I tried catfish for the first time and it was great. I would love to give catfishing a try, only thing is I dont know anything about the needed equipment.

I am currently deployed overseas to Kosovo with the Army and wont be back until July sometime. Is there anyone out there would can possible give me some advise and maybe show me the ropes?

Hello and welcome to FM!

Check out the Catfish forum, lots of great info there.

The great thing about Catfishing is that its relatively inexpensive to get into. If you don't have any gear right now, I can make some good suggestions for a Rod/Reel combo and some basic terminal tackle that you will need. I'm usually pretty good about taking new people out, but would probably make an extra effort to show the ropes to a guy out protecting our great country.

Let me know when you get back and we'll get you set up.

There's a few of us in the forum that fish for cats often. As we get closer to open water, you'll start to see more catfish talk in this forum. Also, like Dtro said, check out the Catfish forum. Lots of good info shared there.
