      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 .

Well as we are getting closer and closer to the opener, our season is just right around the corner. There is alot of lakes out there that im guessing will not have all the ice on it as we would like to see.

Where is everyone going for the opener?

Depends on where the ice is? Some of the smaller sloughs have had ice on them for the past two days so hope for some cold weather the last week of november and some snow would be great (not to much to ask for huh!

Third River on Winnie is always packed full of spearers, I would guess anywhere from 100-200 houses

there is always alot of people that are out there. Are they still getting the big 12-16lbs, or are those fish no longer in sight anymore. I have heard a ton of stories about winnie having monster monster pike back in the day.

looks like its going to be tough to get out there for this year on the ice for the opener. If you want to get out there, your going to have to drive way north.

Anyone ready to go for a long trip.

The metro may not happen except on maybe a small lake... but you probably won't need to go much more that a couple hours north to find good walkable ice.

Was up at Cass this weekend and though the big lakes only had shoreline ice, many of the samller lakes were locked tight and they were already walking out on Red.

With the temps this week, I'd bet even smaller lakes in the Brainard to Hinckley areas will be ready for foot travel.

GO SLOW AND BE SAFE! Check the ice as you go. As bad as we all want to get out there, we don't need to loose a fellow spearer trying to squeeze an extra day out on the ice on the front side of the season...

Good Luck!

Ken
