      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 .

Someone taking a BIG CHANCE!!!

I think I made a mistake plowing the Van Vac landing down to the lake a few days ago!! blush.gif

Checked it tonight, and it appears that someone has driven a 4 wheel drive vehicle out about 150 feet and cleared a 30 X 30 area.

Do not know what they used as it doesn't look to have been plowed, but it may have been.

Didn't think there was anyone that foolish, but stand corrected. frown.gif

Well, it certainly wasn't me dude, I assure you!!!! I guess a 4 wheeler falling through there 2 weeks ago just wasn't enough!! Being the first to get a fish house out on the lake isn't worth losing your life over. That isn't your fault someone drove out on the lake!!!!

Talk to you soon,

Justin

I know it isn't my fault, but a vehicle would never have made it down to the lake and back without the road being plowed.

I had a bit of trouble opening it with my truck and 500 lbs of sand in the back, because the snowmobiles had run on there packing it down.

The tracks were far apart and looked like those from a full size vehicle.

On a lighter note, stop in tomorrow morning and we'll plan the attack on Burntside from the Top Secret Landing! smile.gif

I've been checking out the weather, and think life will be good for the opener. cool.gifcool.gifcool.gifcool.gif

Any reprots on ice/slush/snow conditions off of the landing? Is it tough going off of the landing (for an ATV or walking I am talking about) with the slush/snow conditions?

Any ideas about ice thickness (crank auger or power auger)?

Thanks for any info!

The slush seems to be setting up, somewhat, but the snowmobile tracks off the landing say different.

Talked to the guy who cleared the area I mentioned earlier in this post.

Said there is 12 inches where he has been fishing, 150 feet off the landing. This area had a hole earlier in the week that added about 4 inches of water that froze.

This could explain the thicker ice.

I do not believe there are many, if any other places on Burntside that have this much.

8 inches where I checked last Monday, and it was not hard ice.

Will recon it early next week and report back.

IMHO, they are! smile.gif

Wanderer, I might be on either side. I might step into the trail now and then and dare a person to see me. I might even be in a tree overhanging the trail or perched up on a nearby escarpment glassing the trail.

I.

Might.

Be.

ANYWHERE! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif
