      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 .

Outdoor Weekly vs. Outdoor News?

Recommended Posts

I'm a recent subscriber to Outdoors Weekly and I was curious what everyones opinions are on the Outdoors Weekly and Outdoor News? Some prefer one over the other for various reasons and I was wondering what you all think. I'm beginning to see alot more Outdoors Weekly papers up in this area and I hope this trend continues because I feel the fishing and hunting in this part of the state needs to exposed a bit more than it currently is. Have a good day guys!

I love the outdoor news! It's honestly the only piece of mail I look forward to getting. I think it's very insightful. I've never heard of outdoors weekly, is that based in minnesota as well? I'll have to keep my eye out for it, I can never get enough news about fishing in minnesota. What about midwest outdoors? I like the show, don't care so much for the paper, too inconsistant.

I agree with JBmasterangler,

The Outdoor News by far is the best magazine/paper out there. I look forward to the weekly delivery on Fridays and look forward to Clancy's articles and the ND reports and articles. Havn't missed an issue in about 7 years and will share with my kids when they get old enough to read. Another goody is the MN Volunter. They changed the name to be more PC but it overall is a wonderfull little magazine for everyone that enjoys the outdoors of MN.

Outdoors Weekly is based out of Minnesota (Vadnais Heights and Hutchinson). It's a few less pages than Outdoor News is but I find it very informative and it seems that all of their pictures are in color which I really like. I'm not familiar with the Midwest Outdoors paper but I do love the show.

Definately outdoor news. They have a political twist on outdoors issues but that is one of the reasons I enjoy it so much. The other reason is the writers aren't censored as they offer the opinions on subjects close to their heart. I find that week in and week out the outdoornews does a great job of bringing relevant topics to the table from all different spectrums. Outdoor weekly is a good paper too if you are just looking for outdoors type articles and how to fishing hints. Lately, I have found the content in the outdoor news is by far better then Outdoorlife and even Minnesota sportsman as these mags seem to have less and less content each month. Maybe a testament to the decrease in young sportsmen and women. Bottom line, I look foreward to every Thursday afternoon getting my subscription!

I have been getting outdoor news for a few years now and recently I received the outdoors weekly as Christmas gift. If and when I have to choose which to keep it will be the Outdoor news. I think there is just more info.

I feel Outdoor News is a superior paper compared to Outdoors Weekly. Much more and better info in my opinion. I usually buy both each week when I go grocery shopping and get the latest Midwest Outdoors every month as well. Midwest Outdoors is also pretty good, but for it's size it still doesn't compare to Outdoor News.

My vote goes to Outdoor News. I especially like the reader submitted photos. We always marvel at the large size of some of the fisherman's hands or how small their head is compared to the deer's head. wink.gif

It's always been Outdoor News for me, too. Don't see any reason to change, based on what I've seen with the competition.

Agreed on the outdoor news. Better articles, and more to read in general. Plus reading the cuffs and collars is absolutely hillarious!

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.

      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
