      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 .

Just got back, and stayed there from the 26 till today. They have some roads-but not very far out at all. We had a snowmobile, and got around fine-but I am not sure paying their road pass fee for the limited roads your going to get is worth it. Their were some wheelers comming of further south right of 169....public access maybe. Getting around with a wheeler is going to be tough, and somewhat limited due to the slush in spots-but their cerainly are plenty out there. Who knows, the slush may freeze up a bit. People are using them, and you will be able to follow tracks, and know when slush is in your sights....

Bite was nothing to write home about, but did manage a meal of nice size perch for the four of us, and also one 27" walleye that went back.

Good luck. The majority of the keeper perch action was out past Eddys houses about 300 yards-we put plenty of work hopping holes from Eddys to Rockey Reef, with not much of anything.

I also went out of Eddy's on 12-28. It was the 1st time I went out of Eddy's for ice fishing and the last. They only had the road plowed to their houses. I tried to get around with a four wheeler, but with the slush I was not going anywhere. If u want to go and explore I would look to a resort with plowed roads.

We did the hotel and unlimited house package, which for the price worked for us...the free breakfast, and box lunch were nothing we considered in any of it, but were both very good. We intended to work a bit with the portables, use the house as a basecamp, and then have a nice option of showers, and the comforts of the hotel room. Even though the fishing was nothing great, the entire trip was rather inexpensive. I would note, we stood around waiting for over a half hour upon getting there waiting to get someone to haul all our stuff out the first time....which was not very impressive...drive for three hours, itching to get a line in-and wait...not good.

I would have to say that conditions of the ice and weather would determine if we went back.

Heading back up with my wife in Feb. and am would like to try another place..most like a forum sponsor, as the wife and I like to spend more time on the ice and can do with out the hotel.
