      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 .

6/1-6/4 fishing!!

Recommended Posts


Wow, what beautiful weather we had for camping. Stayed on dryweed island. Wasn't typical walleye weather, however it didn't matter! The eyes were biting. 5-8 fow, on rainbows. Only managed two eaters the entire weekend. Many 20-24 inchers. a few 25's and 26's, the biggest being a thick 28 incher! Couldn't believe the fishing, on glass calm water to top it off, and not a cloud in the sky. What a fishery. Only one smally and a handfull of small pike though confused.gif Thanks for all of the advice guys, it is very much appreciated. It was also nice meeting tearing lips at the rainy lake one stop and chatting with him for a bit. I could've talked to him/you for hours it was such good fishing, but the 4 hour drive was due. Also thanks to rainy lake one stop for hooking me up with a brand new prop shocked.gifshocked.gif. Those dang reefs, watch out for them or else they'll send the adrenaline through ya like a bullet!! Wel'll be back in the fall for sure laugh.gif

Hey Vister,

Congrats on your success! I think I saw you guys on Dryweed. Nice big fish too! Tough to complain when your catching lots of slots huh. My group had a great day despite the gail force winds. We were able to shake the wind a bit and caught some real nice fish. We'll be out again today, and should be a tad bit easier to stay verticle on these pigs. We lost a 8lb plus at the boat yesterday. We had been fishing for no more than 5 minutes, and I was positioning the boat with the big motor as we were vertical jigging. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed one of our crew was discretely bringing in a hog. I quickly turned to grab the net, and he snapped it off. Were catching fish from 12 f.o.w. to 50 f.o.w. Glad to see the winds reside a bit. Good Fishing!

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?

      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
