      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 are going to give it a try on Friday, I am wondering if it's going to be safe to bring the wheeler out in the dark, wondering if anyone has any tips on where to go from the landing on pike bay loop. I don't mind catching pout if anyone has any tips on where to fish them at?

Yooper, I have a buddy out there as we speak checking out some spots with the snowmobile. I have heard of ice up to 9 inches, but we will see. I will leave a report in the morning as I may head out there after work as well.

BE CAREFUL!!! I was out there yesterday afternoon and got stuck three times in the slush... Ice was anywhere from 5 inches to 9.5 inches.. Some pressure ridges are forming but they are hard to see with the snow cover... There is around 12-14 inches of snow on the ice..

I was able to four wheel everywhere I went... There is some thin ice from reports I've been hearing on the south end by the access....

Take your time and bring a chisel with the check ice at times... Good Luck..

Pout tips! Finally a subject I can get excited about! grin.gif There's a whole bunch of deep humps out in the "middle" of Pike Bay. Find one that tops off around 25 to 30 feet and punch a bunch of holes. Hard bottomed humps seem to be best. My favorite lure is a buckshot spoon in perch/green glow. I actually use smaller ones (1/4 oz) and pack the treble with meat. I lost a monster pout out there last winter. Hope you nail 'em.
