      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 .

Recommended Posts

benelli_dude2002

There is a new cell tower just on the west side of Williams. Hopefully this will cover the south side of the lake a little better. I wanna say its Alltel. Just thought I would pass it on or maybe yall knew that already. happy hunting

benelli: I'm not sure how long ago they changed from annalog to digital, but my signal has been much better almost all summer. The battery also lasts as long as it does down in the Twin Cities. It use to keep a charge only half a day. The signal in my house is also much stronger too and I can walk around the house without leaning into a window on the south side. Progress my friend, don't you love it!! COME ON ICE!!! GET READY IT'S COMING.. Kaz grin.gif

Just got back from there and the tower is not operational yet I don't think. I had exact same coverage as the past several years which is decent reception with verizon.

You guys that complain about it working....Don't you know you just act, FROM DAY 1, like it doesn't work up there. Caller ID, you just accept calls you want and don't answer the ones you don't. Easy

LOL!!!!

Well said!

It reminds me of the time on Kab and my wife called.

Out of deep respect I answered.

The water heater wasn't working and while she was going off on what should she do I hooked a nice walleye.

I had to set the phone down to land it and when I picked the phone back up she was still talking.

I never told her this.

In the end I suggested she call her dad.

He's a retired plumber.

`nuff said! Those things have off buttons.

I dont know about Alltel and their towers. They just put a new one up in Greenbush and dont work wortha crap if ya ask me and Unicell customers, no difference in bars (barely 1 to begin with). Different story i guess if you have Alltel, it works good.

If it's Alltel that would be cool. Have had Midwest Wireless just for ice fishing for a couple Winters and now there Alltel of course.

A tower in Greenbush isnt going to make a difference

on the lake. There was a serious hole in cell service

from Badger to Middle River, and now is seems at least

a little better. It must be the Greenbush tower.

If you want good service on the lake, get an external

antenna...problem solved.

NAMA It's a possibility that your on a different system and the signal strength from the other system over powers your phone because your so close to the tower causeing a "Desense" of your phone. Unless it's a duel tower, meaning it carries both systems, you may not be benefiting from it. That would cause the dropped call. Or another reason is your phone is not set up to search for other networks. Call your provider and explain what happened, they should be able correct the problem or at least explain why your having trouble.. Kaz

If you really need phone coverage, and I don't, but I was tired of ruining those little hand held cell phones, they do not like water! frown.gif Motorola recently came out with a new bag phone! digital! it is awesome, everywhere I have been on the Rainy it works perfect! when before there were dead spots everywhere. Big, yes, numbers I can see, yes, my pumkins can push the numbers, I love this phone, speaker phone, yhou can talk while landing your walleyes, My provider is unicell

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.
