      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 .

Early season crappie and trophy pike?

Recommended Posts

FISHINGURU

went up to URL with a small group for the 1st time last late ice in a rental from kelly p...we did real good on some big crappies and tons of average size walleyes. we pulled in a couple stray pike and even a few perch also. i was hoping to go out with jon p to search for some trophy pike but the weather outside was terrible...you might remember us as the group of 4 with the big pile of crappies and crown royal bottles grin.gif...we had a blast and want to come up again forsure!

anyway my questions are, is the crappie and big pike bite decent early ice? or is a guy better off waiting a little while into the season or late ice? i would love to rent another shack or two from ya kelly but hopefully this time the weather is a little better so i can bounce around and search for some big pike. good or bad you'll be seein us soon!

Ya I remember you guys...actaully I rember the trash bags jingled with bottles when I hauled them out laugh.gif. Definetly a good time had by all, in fact I was just looking at some of the pictures from last winter and came across the one with one of your group holding a fish and your buddy trying to grab another rod in the background behind the Crown bottles.

As for the pike they run strong all season, normaly we have a strong first ice bite although the muddy water slowed it down a little this year...but it is only clearing up as we speak so hang on they are getting hungry.

Nope we are going to play it safe until xmas time. Most of our clients are return customers and we want them to keep coming back...

Red lake can get spooky and we just want make sure everybody stays safe and has a good trip without disaster.
