      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 .

Mtn Jam - welcome to the forum! We pulled out of the Maxwell Bay ramp, tried the 25' hole, got a couple perch. Moved off Bohns point, tried 18-33 ft, found perch everywhere. Some were pretty hungry, one decided to swallow a shiner whole on a tip-up! I hooked into something that spooled a bunch of line pretty quick, broke the 2lb test. Thinking pike or musky. We sat around for over an hour after the perch finally left, didn't find any action.

We measured the ice being at least 8", varied quite a bit with some places well over 12". A bit of slush here and there. Very little snow cover.

Me and my brother in law fished Crystal Bay for a couple hours this evening, we were just nailing the perch frown.gif.

He hooked into this chunk in 15'. It was thick, didn't have a measuring stick, it was a couple inches longer than a rapala ice rod. LB
