      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 .

You were walking out on the ice? How far from shore were you? I can't wait to see some ice action on URL!

I'm hearing 3 to 6 inches of ice in 5 feet of water and less. 2 to 3 inches of ice beyond the 8 foot break. I'm really surprised that yesterdays wind did not break it up. Low temps, highs in the teens and lows in single didgits after mid week.

That's really good news - thought for sure that wind would do a number on the ice on Red.

Everything is looking really good for a smooth freeze-up so far....

You won't catch me on the ice for a week or more, Red would like nothing more then to open up and swallow a couple more anglers. To many times she has teased us until everybody felt safe then opens up in a wind.

If you gou out be careful and use every precaution you can until she has had time/temps to lock up solid.

Jon, did those gusty winds this past night break up the ice or is it still locked up.

The good thing is we're in a cold weather pattern now.

I was in Redby yesterday afternoon and was surprised to see some blue water on Lower Red Lake.

This morning I think it should have been cold enough to make water hard. It might be a tough winter if we are seeing a negative sign in front of the temp before December.

She stayed lock up and is looking good although this recent snowfall is putting alot of weight and insulation on the ice. Starting to see slush pockets already.
