      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 .

Clams on the ice at WC Reservoir

Recommended Posts

I stopped out to WC today and saw a few spots with small air holes and cracked clam shells on the ice. What are eating these? Muskrats?

Yeah, I saw that last night as well. Nutty! I got it believe it's Muskrats, but I have no clue. I'm not even sure why there are clams in Willow? I thought they preferred a river system.

Yeah, it's kind of a double mystery. I trapped a lot of rats when I was a kid. I have a hard time believing that those little rats could get clams those size off the lake floor and up and through the hole.Those clams are also pretty hard to crack.Anyone ever see otters around the Rochester area? Maybe it's like the Red lake seals! grin.gif

I've seen otters at Doer(sp?)pools at Whitewater and have heard of them being caught by trappers around Roch. I think muskrats only eat veggies.

Do mink swim?? They would eat a clam.

if i were a bettin' man, i go with otters. i'm quite sure muskrats fill there lodges with plants for winter forage. most rodents are herbivores. otters are a member of the weasel family, and are carnivorous.
