      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 .

How much would a 19 inch smallie that looked full of eggs weigh from the St Croix??

Probably about 5 pounds, give or take a couple ounces. The biggest smallie I've ever caught was 18 inches and was just over 4 pounds.

We caught a 19 1/2 a few years ago on opener. It went 4lbs 6 oz on our scale.

Nice fish!

I caught a 22 1/2" Smallmouth on the St. Croix near Hudson 3 years ago.

Man it was huge - I quickly gota tape measure, thought about mounting her, then decided to put her back in the water to spawn another year or two or more (who knows?). She looked a little beat up, but at that size & age, no wonder.

I thought about 6 - 6.5 Lbs. confused.gif

Is that about right or would she weigh more...??

19"this time of year could go 5.. but if I had to guess, jus a hair under. During the summer a 19" smallie woud probably go around 4 lbs..maybe 4.25.

a 22.5 is hard to say, depends on what time of the year you caught it. A trophy no matter what!

Geez, I'm giddy like a school girl when I catch a 22.5" walleye, I can't imagine what I'd do if I caught a smallie of the same length.

Dietz,

It was mid-summer, that's another reason why I did not take the time to weigh the 22.5" Smallie. I wanted to get it in ASAP.

Well done FishForLife!!!

I respect you all that much more!!! A replica would look really nice on your wall I would bet! Midsummer, if I had to guess, and thats all it would be.. a guess...A 22.5" river smallie would be pushing 6lbs... A trophy for sure!... a 22.5" lake smallie would probably weigh more, but not be as strong...
