      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 .

Rainy River Fishing Report by Border Country Outdoor Adventures.

We fished with the Nelson, Miller party for Sturg today on the Rainy. We focused on the mouths of tributary rivers, and feeder creeks. The water temps were 47 to 49 degrees. Had good action all day, and boated 12 fish between 52 to 64in, and saw lots of other dandy sturg caught by other boats fishing. Here are a few pictures from today

Hope this was sarcasm...please refrain from holding these majestic dinosaurs by the gills they are not built for it and it may cause damage..

That's one of the great things about this site. There is a happy post about a good trip. The fish is held level and supported by 6 hands and we can't even really see if his hand is in the gills or the mouth. The first thing we do is jump all over him and preach about what he's doing wrong!

I see four hands unless the two of them have a couple of extra hidden somewhere else. I do agree, however, many are quick to judge others here rather than share the excitement of the moment why we do what we do.

I see 2 hands supporting the full weight of the fish on 2 gill plates. There is obviously a lot of weight on those gills.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm sure not judging, just passing along a suggestion to maybe alleviate injuring a fish that is required to be released.

Thanks for the report BCOA. Looks like you had a great day on the river.

I second what DTro and other are cautioning. It's an awful lot of weight pulling down. Plus, if you look under the gill plate there is a set of gills that are connected to the plate. So even when you think hands are out of the gills, you still are handling some of the gill. Very robust fish be we still need to be careful.

Regardless, it looks like this was a great outing and got some youngsters on some fish. Can't wait until my boy is old enough.
