      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 .

We went out, and it doesn't look like Richard is going to be opening the road up by this weekend. The ice ranges from around 14inches to about 10 inches, at least where we were fishing.

There's a pretty nasty breaker about a third of the way out to Gull rock, it wasn't too bad yesterday morning, but it broke up pretty good yesterday. We ended up unhooking the house, and jumping the fourwheeler over/through it, and then taking the house over by hand.

It did look like the rocky point resort was pulling their houses out with the little suzuki samurai's though, and they were going over the same breakers.

The fishing wasn't all that great, but what we did catch, was great size for the pan, Between two guys we caught maybe 12 fish total over two days, including a nice eelpout. We tried both east and west of the rock to the south, varying from about 22 feet of water, to 29. We had our best luck deeper oddly enough. We only caught two saugers.

We talked to five other fisherpersons, and we were doing by far the best out of everyone. So, I don't know if it's slow there, or we had bad luck... and they had bad luck, or that there were just so few people there that we didn't land in em. Both days we pretty much had the place to our selves, other than the people we talked to we didn't see anyone else, And even those people weren't fishing gull rock, at least not while we were.

Thanks for info. Did you happen to see if anyone was heading out to Arnesens, 8 or 16 mile reefs.

It looked like arnesons had some resort houses on it, other than that I saw nothing headed out past gull rock. There were only four houses at gull rock.

I would guess this weekend it'll get a lot more populated, and you'll probably get better answers then :-).

Course, with the temps on friday, maybe only the diehards will be out... I know I'll be inside where it's warm, that four-wheeler trip was bad enough this mornin lol.
