      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 .

Florida fishing tips sought

Recommended Posts

Come next spring, the family is headed to Disneyworld/etc. As part of the vacation, we're thinking of trying to set up a "deep sea" fishing trip in that general area. Can anyone offer advice? Where? When? Who? What to ask? How much? Other Web sites? We're on a budget, but then again, it is vacation. Thanks for any suggestions.

There are many Charters availible out of Clearwater - google Clearwater Charter Fishing and you'll find what you need. If the kids are young - say under 10 or even 12 you may wish to rethink or take a shorter trip - they book by 4 hrs, 6 hrs and 8 hrs usually. Take dramamine if you've not been out before - I've seen many a miserable soul turn green and chum the sea with their breakfast. Even on a calm day the roll of the Gulf can getcha if you're not accustomed to it.

Costs will run from around $400 to $1600 depending on the length of the trip and particular charter. The deckhands tip isn't included and is the way he/she makes his living - he'll clean the fish as well, customary is 15-20% of the trip cost (depending on helpfulness and number of fish to clean in my opinion) I'd go for the bottom fishing (Snapper/Grouper/Amberjack) you'll likely see a bit more consistent action than chasing the other fish. Could also look into a party boat - they are bigger and have set departure times, you fish off the side with 50-75 other folks - usually not as productive, but is much less expensive (40-60 a head from memory)

We went bass fishing right on Disney property in February. Even though it was a slower time, we boated 6 nice largemouth. (The middle of March is when the fishing picks up.) They are all guided trips on pontoons. We took 2 kids with us, an 11 year old and an 8 year old, and they loved it.

I am not sure the cost, since my hubby gave the trip to me for a Valentine's day gift, but he wouldn't have done that had it not been reasonable.
