      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 .

Outfished by the wife on Burntside

Its was Friday night and we still were not sure what to fish for it was going to be crappies close to home or Cool Cats get together and the third choice was to run up to Burntside for lakers. I looked at the weather forecast and it sounded like it would be great so I decided we should try lakers under some protest from Lisa. She wanted to try for crappies but I was driving so lakers it was.Went to Great Outdoors for bait and received a lot of great info and even some spots to try and did not even have to bribe GO for them. We hopped around to a few of the spots and stayed at the one that seemed to have the most smelt activity. Lisa hooked her first laker at 2:00 and it was 21" and hooked a 25" at 4:00. I thought she was shaking a lot with the fish at 2 and after getting the 25" up I thought she was going to wet her drawers when it made a couple power dives and the ole drag was a squealing. The look on her face when I pulled it out of the hole was priceless. There was no way to wipe that grin off. We decided that we would release this one for another day. At 4:25 I finally catch one and it is only a 18" and I released that one to . Sunday morning we hit the same spot and Lisa hooks into another nice one and it is another 25" and gives her a great battle but she able to land it but this one had some battle scars from when it was young so we decide we will keep this one for smoking. We had a ton of fun but I sure wish I could have got one of those nice ones but at least she is hooked on laker fishing now grin.gif

Lisa,

Crappies, schmappies! Jim had the plan! \:D

When you're fishing the craps after laker season closes, I'm thinking you'll still be smiling. Eh?

Congrats.

I don't know about that SK! I think I'd be heading to divorce court if that happens every time we're out! \:D\:D

I sent my Marcum in the following week at the Bash and they replaced the transducer and transformer and I got it back the beginning of the following week. Great customer service and now she works just beautifully!

First time I took my wife on a fly in to Canada she catches a very nice 28" walleye within 2 hours after we got there. Hey but I catch more that she does. Sound like sour grapes? It is.
