      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 .

Nice fish Muleskinner.

I managed to get out from 430-630 this afternoon, water temps were up a bit 45°. It was great action 31 smallies and 2 keeper walleye cool.gif. I did manage to get this one nice 19.5" smallie..... 100_3.th.jpg I realize that I need to work on the self portrait technique..... Life is full of learning experiences isn't it? Definitely no complaints here. It is so hard to go anywhere else if I have such great fishing practically at my door step. I still wish I had more time to find the "big one". Good fishin'

Speaking of learning experiences..... What am I doing wrong??? confused.gif

Lost: To be honest, I don't know that I have ever tried eating a Smallie. I almost always just fish walleyes (and crappies). I would guess the DNR closes the possessing season because these smallies seem to come alive in the Fall in deeper water, and they are big.

I guess I would be curious though, of those that do keep some for eating (during the legal season), isn't there a size that would be best tasting, like walleye? Wouldn't there be a max size cutoff for most people of 14 or 15 inches? Just curious. I have tried largemouth. Was OK, but with crappies, and some eater sized walleyes so readily available, haven't eaten any bass for many years. Maybe some people prefer bass. Others don't eat fish at all. To each their own, as long as they abide by the regs.

I've been told that smallies taste like something of a mix between carp and dogfish. grin.gif

When you're my friend Darrell, if it has fins and scales, he'll eat it. frown.gif
