      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 .

After a week in Albuquerque for work I was ready for some fishing. I made my first trip out on the ice with T.H.E JIG

I got out in St. Paul even though it was pretty nasty out!

It was a pretty slow day but we found a couple gills and crappies. Here is a typical gill for the day.

I was going to leave early but decided to stick it out and was rewarded with a fairly decent pike. Lucky for me, he didnt make off with my jig!!

I also tried some L-A plastics with some success.

The lake has a max depth of 17 feet and we found fish still relating to weeds in about 9-10 feet of water. I was able to get 'gills to come off the bottom and rise to about 5ft down and then they would smack T.H.E. Jig. I was using a orange and white Jig that was 1/64th once.

Pretty impressed with my first trip out with T.H.E. Jig-Thanks a ton CK

Nice report, steeple!

I left the camera behind due to the awful conditions out yesterday - but heck, I had the lake to myself, which doesn't happen often these days even on small, out-of-the-way lakes that I like to fish.

There were times when I had trouble locating my tip-up out the window about fifty feet away due to the hurricane rattling my portable. But the solitude was great. The fish were kind of willing - caught a pair of very nice crappies, & a bunch of little sunnies. The pike were around but hitting very lightly. Didn't hook either of the flags I got and had four minnows picked off my jigging spoon. The only pike I caught was when I set the rod down & didn't notice the bite until it jumped over & hit me in the leg. I suspect he chewed on it for a while - nice 30" plus guy, fat & healthy & made me wish I hadn't left my camera at home.

For what it's worth, the action took place in a flat almost as far from the lake's deep water as you can get, in about 7' of water.

A good day to be out. My wife called me crazy. tongue.gif
