      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 .

I doubt it. Usually the body doesn't get cold, jut fingers and toes. Then again, if you are flexible enough, maybe you can get your hands and feet into your jacket.

I bought one a few years ago and they are very warm. The year I bought it, was the deer season opener of -20F. I was able to stay in the stand that morning for 5 hours. Now the downfalls 1)too bulky to carry into the stand 2)very hard to put on without falling over, however I was putting on the booties that came with it 3)Since that opening morning, we haven't had that cold of weather.

I would not purchase another one. I would use that money to buy good quality bibs, jacket and boots.

I bought one about 8 years ago and although I don't use it every time out, it does help me to sit longer than I would without it. IMO, it is worth the money if you sit for 5-6 hours or more at a crack or if it is real cold. When we had that 15-20 below a few years ago I sat from sunrise till 3:00 PM and was just a little chilled. I have also used it bowhunting in late December and stayed toasty. It is a little bulky to get into but once in it I think it works good. I used a sleeping bag prior to buying this and that worked OK. The heater body suit works better though. If you stand sit for long periods I think you will like it. I usually haul it out to my stand the day before and hike out dressed light and pack in my coat. I would buy one again if the extra money was available.

I would agree that you should take a look at the Artic Armor wear. They have the red suit and the camo for hunting. I recieved my camo one today and put it on and was walking around outside to see how it fit and how it was when bending and so forth.

This will be a great addition to my hunting clothes. Check the suits out here

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
