      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 .

Wow nice fish! Very unique looking; probably a hybrid of some sort.

Yeah, looks mostly like a bluegill, but with a hint of pumpkinseed characteristics. In which case makes it an even more impressive fish.

Thanks! I finally got out and measured my marks and it was 9 3/4". I thought I had finally hit that 10" mark but not quite, guess I have to keep fishing! I have caught some 9"ers before but this fish was so thick I knew it was the biggest I have ever caught, very beat up, old fish with battle wounds. Heading back today to try for another.

Yesterday was even better, got a few big ones, here is my biggest, it went 10.25", and I think they were all pumpkinseeds, or at least hybrid. Does this fish look like a purebred pumkinseek?

All fish caught in very shallow water, 1 foot or less with small ratsos, white being a great color yesterday. Caught many small fish also, but the biggest seem to come from right next to shore, bullrushes. Small west metro lake, sorry a bit too small to name, but to avoid assumption, it is not steiger or auburn, kinda looks like it in pics.

Thanks for all the replies, I spent all winter trying to hunt down a 10" sunny and failed, finally broke that mark this week! All fish CPR'd.

I was just lookin at the DNR site, the state record for pumkinseed is only 10.1" long? If that is purebred pumkinseed that I am catching, that fish had to be close. Wish I woulda had a light scale with me to get the weight.

Those are all nice fish but I think your getting some big hybrids not pumpkins. They dont have a distinct red mark on the tip of the gill plate and the mouths look quite large even for fish of that size...

Yea that seems to be the case, I did catch a few pure pumkinseeds but the bigger ones appear to be hybrids, they seem to have alot of pumkin in them which makes them look really pretty with all the colors and lines. I have gotten quite a few nice sized fish, only 1 of which was a bluegill.
