      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 .

For me it's the end of October most falls. But I've fished as late as early December in my boat.

I keep my boat ready to go until freeze up. I've had lots of great fishing right through deer season.

The last three years it's been the week before Thanksgiving for me. Last year my best fishing started in the last week of October.

My boat is always ready to hit the water. Even if I have to winterize it again. grin.gif

I usually quit boat fishing around the end of Oct though.

...when the lakes freeze. grin.gif

There have been years I wish I wouldn't have pickled the boat, so now I just postpone until freeze up.

Mine normally goes to sleep for awhile when pheasant season opens, then reappears for the winter bite on pool 4 of the mighty Mississippi for the remainder of the winter. Gotta love early January on the open water grin.gif

I'll put it away when I'm done with it. I can't say when that will be. I don't have a whole lot to do to pickle it. It's like a 2 minute process and I'm done.

I love the ice but hopefully I have a little longer in the boat this year.

I put mine away the week before thanksgiving week, because I deer hunt in Wisconsin for the week of thanksgiving. Then when I return, I get my stuff out and ready for the ice season.

I fished on White Bear Lake on Dec. 15 out of the boat several years ago. The boat is always ready to go, but once duck season starts it has little chance of making it out again until the spring. We do use our other boat right up until ice is too thick to break. Then my "boat" is an Otter shack smile.gif

I put mine in storage on Good Friday.

Just got it out again last weekend, and took it to the fishing shack for the season. It felt like opening day for me! smile.gif

I fish hard from mid December to Easter weekend and then racing season kicks in and the boat doesnt get used.

I'm storing my boat for the season about the time most are making the first hook to the trailer for the year.

I have averaged 50 hours on the F115 per year for the 3 years I/ve owned it, all in the winter.

If the weathers right, I'm gone fishing.

Now, I have put it off in years past but never get it out after the pheasant season starts. It is just alot easier to do it when it is warm. I do keep my little 14' ready for a quick trip but the big boat is now in the sleep mode
