      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 .

#3 Perch - pink squirrel

This fight was ridiculous. Felt a hit so I set the hook. Buddy asks 'whatcha got on...gotta pike on?' I responded 'pretty sure, diving pretty good'. We saw the northern flash on top of the water, then to my surprise I pull this little perch up. He was bleeding out of a puncture wound on either side of his tail.

Funny to think that catching this fish probably saved his life...you're welcome little buddy, thanks for playin!

I still can't believe that rock bass unhooked himself and snuck between the boards in the dock before you could snap a pic... oh well.

The crappies sure are pretty this time of year.

Haha, thanks guys. I took the week off work, and have been travelling with my fly rods...rough I know.

Ich and Turtle, I was wishing I had you guys' contact info this morning as I was in the Winona area - Check out the pics from today's trip on the Root.

16" Brown Trout caught on a custom pink squirrel. I caught Brown and Brook trout with this all day long today, I'll post a recipe soon.

Did you attach the wrong image? That is a brown trout for sure.

It's too bad we didn't know you were down today. MNFishHunter and I went out and caught trout, smallies, and rock bass today. Good times. You'll have to give us a heads up next time your coming down.

The top one is a brown for sure, you think the bottom one is too? Maybe its the light...there were definate halos around those lower spots.

I might be down there with Slab this weekend. We should party.
