      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 .

Anyone have any ice reports for little long lake or shagawa?

Going up to my buddies cabin this weekend for the first time this winter and was just curious on how thick the ice is around there.

Stay in the cabin and drink beer.

This last 12-14 inches of snow just gave us the coup de grace for any good ice this season! mad.gif

If you must go out, bring knee high boots or chest waders.

Ice on most of the area lakes was 4 to 9 inches when the last big snow hit, so it should be safe (well, we now no ice is really safe) on foot. You should be fine walking. Even if there's no slush where you are, drilling holes will create it because of all that weight pushing down on the ice, so GO's advice about the knee-high boots is right on.

The only time you need hip waders for ice fishing is right here on this board when GO starts exaggerating. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

stfcatfish gave you a good tip about the water coming up after a hole is drilled, even if there was none earlier.

It will make a big time mess.

When Steve drills a hole, the water REALLY comes through the hole.

Looks like an oil well in Texas!! cool.gif

This being due to the fact he doesn't tip the scales at a mere 160 pounds, like myself!! grin.gifgrin.gif
