      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 .

Kids Perch Derby

Recommended Posts

Up North

I don't know how many people were at the derby today but dang...it was a heck of a turnout. And what was with the snow??? Started snowing as soon as we got out there and stopped falling as soon as the derby was over. But hopefully it was a great day for everyone, was for me and my boys, although I may need an Advil in the morning after punching all those holes this morning. crazy.gif

I had the pleasure of meeting Beef and Matt, couple of really good guys.

My boys didn't catch anything but I think that was due to Woodman asking us to move over by him... whistle.gif But they won some door prizes and had a blast. Last I heard there was only about a dozen fish caught???

Hope everyone else had a good time.

Well I was marking lots of fish when we were setting our depths, so I thought it would have been a great place with the weeds close by! Thanks BEEF! cry.gif Good day and only a few crying kids with snow balls to the face! crazy.gif

Advil, I was taking Tylenol before I left the house and as soon as I got home to pick everybody up and then again when I got home from the event. Then on the wheeler to plow and now on here. What a great way to end the weekend! grin.gif

I think a total of 12 or so perch caught... I tried Woodman to put you on the spot, but it must be the dad not the guide this time grin.gifgrin.gif..... Thanks to all who helped drill about 1300 holes.... To bad the snow and wind had to pick up.... It seemed all the kids were having a blast and thats what counts the most... Took me about three hours to thaw out... BURR!!!!

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
