      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 .

It'll still be plenty crowded on a Friday. A lot of people don't work fridays and then there are the guys that are laid off and people that are staying in the area on a fishing trip. If you want to have it a little more quiet, go on a weekday like Tues or Weds. and fish either early in the morning or stay there till dark. And yes, with less pressure, the fish will bite better and you will be able to fish more spots.

I'll be making my first run down there for the year tomorrow(wednesday), going solo since most people I fish wish have normal jobs and only can fish on weekends, hopefully I'll be able to find some fish without all the crowds around.

To get to the store take 61 south into town and turn right at Perkins. Go underneath the bridge and where the first building on your left past the Super 8.

I'll be here at 6 am.

You guys might need a larger minnow scoop to keep them customers coming back. Just a little constructive criticism.

I was down at Ike's Sunday morning and bought minnows. I don't much pay attention to how many minnows are in the scoop, I fish alone and never go through a whole scoop anyway, but I will say this:

Those were some of the liveliest and spunkiest fatheads I've had in awhile!

And they stayed that way all day!

So my two cents are, even if the scoop is smaller (I have no reason to doubt Norksy), I personally prefer quality over quantity.

Norskey - sorry you feel the way you do. When I scoop I try to get as many as I can in the scooper. My dad tells all of us to get as many as you can so we please the customers.

Give me a call and when you stop buy again I'll give you two FREE scoops. Just ask for Shawn.

Thanks for the critisim.

The two scoops I bought yesterday morning was more than fare. Minnows were lively and last all day.

Thanks. grin.gif
