      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 .

Would I rather be lucky than good?

Yesterday was a great day to take out Maureen. She likes warm weather fishing and yesterday was about 92. She could wear her favorite fishing clothes, a bikini. It's the first year she has been fishing in years and I'm trying to teach basic technique and fishing skills. Yesterday we are targeting smallmouth bass in the St. Louis River. Pitching a jig and minnow against shady banks is having surprising success and I can hardly get a line in myself because I'm baiting hooks and landing Maureen's fish. I'm just about to finally throw a line in after landing 4 of her fish when Maureen over casts and leaves her jig well wrapped around an alder branch, only the tail of the minnow touching the water. She gives me a dumb helpless look, and I ask "how are you going to get out of that now?" No sooner do the words come out of my mouth than a northern erupts out of nowhere, hammers the jig, strips the leaves off the branch, and perfectly clears the line from the bush. "That's how I'm going to get out of there, smart-#@&!" comes her perky reply.

Well, sometimes, maybe it is better to be lucky than good.

give her a pat on the back for me!.. ata girl!

Reminds me of a bass tournament I fished quite a few years ago on Tonka.. I was skipping crankbaits under docks. Well, one cast did not go so well. I ended up wrapping the line around a rope tied to a boat and the lure hung about a foot above the water. As I was easing the boat nearer the dock to un tie the line a 2 lb bass jumped up and stuck itself on the lure...

Sounds like a great outing. Congrats to her from me as well.

Funny thing is I get my fair share of treebass, but my ending usually involves some bad words, cutting the line and breaking branches.

Again congrats on the fun outing

I assumed that you all managed to land the northern? What line did you use? I am quite surprised that the line did not break.

Anyway..very good story. Thanks. It gave me a good grin for the day.

Indeed we did land the northern. Not a big fish, maybe 18 or 20". The line was 2#-10# Power Pro, with a 15# Flourocarbon leader. The northern was lip hooked.

Glad you fellas got a chuckle out of this, I've gotten good mileage out of it at work.
