      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 .

Veterans on Ice

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to post a thanks to all of you that contribute to this site. I Returned lastnight from our "Veterans on Ice" trip to LOW. The St Francis American Legion Post took a group of 18 Veterans from the Korea, Vietnam, Panama/Granda,and Desert Storm eras up for some fun on the big lake. We went out of Ballards and they took wonderful care of us. Very few of the group had ever fished LOW before so what we learned prior to the trip on this site was very helpfull. we quickly learned that the general rule was if they strech accross the top of the bucket they go in the bucket...Ballards had us all spread out from 15 to 28 feet of water. On Sat. the 20th the group in my house of 4 fishermen we put 10 in the bucket. It was a real light bite and had to change up often to trigger them. As it ended up we hade the best results of our entire group for that day. Sunday was even harder...we opted to saty in 27 deeft were we had been the day before but those in shallower requested to come out deeper for the second day. By midway thru that second day, we were joking eachother on the radios that we may have to start keeping those that streched across the top of the coffee can that held the minnows instead of the 5 Gal. bucket. We did manage to keep 11 the second day in our house of 4 but the others did not do as well. The big fish of the trip were a pair of 17" Saugers the first day and three 14" sauger the second day out of the 18 fishermen..Lessons learned... 1) Change presentation often, going smaller each time, 2) one dead stick and one jigging. If you missed em on the jigger you usualy picked up a bite on the dead stick. 3)Gold, or Glow 4) next time stop and fish URL for some crappies on the way up, and or on the way home...All in all we had a great time, shared some good stories and made some new memories.

USA: Nice to hear that you had a good expierance to the big pond. It has definitley been a tougher bite as of late and the downsizing you did was the way to go. We found the same thing last week. HOpe you plan another trip next year and enjoy it even more. There is no place like it. Bill
