      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 .

Tonka Story

So I was shore fishing this morning at Minnetonka. I always go for walleyes but of course that never pans out for me. I manage to hook a nice bass but couldn't land it. After an hour there was no more bites from the bigger fish, so I switched to fishing for sunnies to bring home. I was doing pretty good with nice hand size sunnies till a big lumbering muskie ( i think around 30-40" give or take a a few due to water refraction) parked himself 5ft away from me. Being not a big fan of pike/muskies I avoided him and casted my panfish jig as far behind him as my ultra-light gear could. I'm sitting there trying to ignore him when i get a hit on my jig. I moved a few feet down the shoreline to try to land my sunnie when this big flash of white came rushing over to hit my poor sunnie. Next thing I know I'm battling a probable 40" muskie on ultra-light rod/reel , 6lb test and panfish jig lol. After 5 mins of an ever losing battle, he finally cut my line. Boy was I thankful lol, I had nothing to land him with that is to say I could pull him in in the first place.

I've fished Tonka for while now, and glad to see these nice muskies laugh

Yea Rui, I'm sure it was fun even if you didn't want to get him on your line. That had to be a battle.
