      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 .

Sunday I fished the north end and found 5-6". I did run into some spots with lots of slush under the snow. I also saw some sled and wheeler tracks. The snow and slush made pulling the gear out brutal!

the ice is thick enough where they're taking 4 wheelers out on the lake. there is a little bit of slush between the ice and snow, so be careful. was out on it this afternoon, but helping the other half's parents do some things, so didn't get a chance to freeze a line. That's the up to date info.....

the house is up for sale and when sold, the owner will be moving to Hawaii. Stifler never bought the house for his dad. Some older guy has it for now.

I was out to the west and north of the weed island. There were about 10 shacks between the weed island and Cigar island. I got two little 'eyes' from 4-6pm in 17ft of water. Didn't get to where I wanted to go...hand auger was too dull to get holes right on the spot. Also the heater had a broken thermocouple so the heat kept shutting off. I had about 6.5inches of ice. Some spots had great clear ice and others had about 3inches of slush on top. Not much for tracks out where I was. Usually there is a city where I was at.
