      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 .

Tip: when to move/

Recommended Posts

A little thing I practice that paid off on Tuesday while fishing Lake Zumbro. We had set up right on the bottom of the shoreline break. However, we soon realized things weren't happening.

What to do? Move out away from the break. I drilled a half moon of about 4-5 holes that stretched 50-60 feet out away from any shore line structure.

I was immediately rewarded with fish. Not gangbusters by any stretch of the imagination, but all of my fish came away from shore. The fish that did appear near in the original holes were VERY shy and unwilling to grab a hold!

So if you get a chance to try this out, let me know how you do!!!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

After watching Jim and his "half-moon" magic on Tuesday, I decided to try it for myself yesterday on a small local impoundment. My son and I began fishing at the base of a drop-off where we've done well in the past. After watching the electronics and trying several presentations to no avail, I begin drilling a half moon pattern - half of it away from the break and half "up" into the shallower water. Started bouncing from hole to hole with the electronics, and eventually found some fish in the deeper water - away from the break. We were not rewarded with mass quantities by any means, but the 'gils we landed were of considerable quality!
