      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 .

The 2007 season so far!

Recommended Posts

So how has your 2007 fishing been so far? I am not asking you to give up your favorite lakes or hot spots just wondering how you have been doing with this very windy and unstable weather changes daily that has been kickin our butts. We have actually only had 3 good days of fishing luck around these prairie pot holes of SW Minnesota so far and am hoping for a more stable weather pattern to help us out. Live baits on spinners has been our best bet so far.

Mine started on big Stone. Had a good time. Fishing was tough but we caught a few. I've had a few good days on Sarah, Shetek, and Bloody. I agree, the weather, more like the wind, has been tough to deal with. I have time to let the wind die down, however. I melted a piston on my boat motor Saturday night. Soooooo, I'll be doing an overhaul soon. frown.gif

I have had a great year to date. I have the luxury to fish just about anytime I choose, sooo, the wind doesnt bother me that much.

To date, I have a 11.5# walleye and I also caught my biggest sturgeon at 55.5 inches. my crappie fishing has been a little slow to date but, my cat fishing for channels and flatheads on the river has been good too. The wind doesnt really affect me on the river.

I hope others are having a good start. smile.gif

I've been picking up a few nice walleyes on Lake Okabena in Worthington. Trolling shad raps or casting raps into shorelines. Did real well on spirit lake a few weeks ago. All in all a good start to the season! I wish the wind would stop blowing!

Don't fear Bill, the wind will die down next weekend when the windsurfers get to town, never fails.

I havent been online for awhile but I have been out fishing. Went to Hanska on opener to run the boat for the first time after getting the carbs cleaned. Me and my son caught a few eyes and sunnies.Found out later the eyes were in the creak. Went up to Ottertail the next weekend and did good on Friday,then things went down hill from there. Major rain Friday night,winds kicked up Saturday morning into 30 mph sustained by late afternoon. 4to5 ft rollers put us on the boat lift for the night.Next morning I had to pump out the boat because the winds shifted to our side of the lake during the night to make 7ft rollers. My motor wouldnt start because water came into the tank through the vent on the side of the boat.Ended up towing boat to landing. End of trip.

I didn't know there were any fish left in Okabena, except catfish.
