      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 .

East end there's been wheelers out for over a week, fishing for two weeks with the usual first ice action, plus a few crappies I hear. Reports have been 7-10 inches on the east end now. West end just saw houses out Monday and only close to shore most of the lake was open for a week after the east end froze.

Kobear do you live on the lake? We are on the North East side and there has been about 7 inches of clear ice but have not traveled anywhere else. Do you know if it is safe to try crappies towards the west just off of the landing/boat launch on Plentywood Rd?

Thanks!

Was out on Rush last night 10/12/07. Went out of public access on north side off hwy14. Watched a full sized truck with a plow on front drive past our fishouse and out to a hill.We had 11" of ice. That guy has to be way more willing to swim in cold water than we were. He hit a slush pocket and the water flew about 10' from both sides of his truck. Three of us stood there speechless until he got to his fishhouse,hopped out and went fishing.Crazy!!!!

Houses along Plentywood since Monday. Now there are houses way out south of center. We were on Otter Tail yesterday out from Pelican Bay still only 5 inches of ice in places before you get to the first houses; CRAZY people driving trucks out there too!

Fished last weekend and it was fairly slow, not much action all day. Lots of slush but still a lot of ice 10-12 inches. Thanks again.
