      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 .

Peace and Quiet the weekend of the Fishing Extravaganza?

Recommended Posts

I love going visiting the in-laws, who live on the Gull Lake chain, during the winter. The ice fishing is great, and the crowds and the hassle that you often have to deal with on the weekends in the summer are gone for the most part. Its a great time of the year to relax on the lake.

Anyway, I just realized that our next visit up will be over the weekend of the Fishing Extravaganza. I have purposefully avoided that weekend in years past due to perceived lack of peace and quiet which I enjoy so much in the winter.

Will it still be possible to find a some peace and quiet on the chain during the Fishing Extravaganza, will it be easy to find bait, should I wear blaze orange to avoid being hit by a snowmobile? Suggestions on flying under the radar are welcomed.

Not to seem antisocial or cranky, but I have always appreciated the quiet contemplation which has traditionally coincided with my winter visits to Nisswa.

You might actually find more peace and quiet since 10,000 people will be on one little bay on Gull. Which usually equates to less people elsewhere in the area.

Bait is rarely a problem as most of the local shops seem to stock up really well prior to the event.

And no, don't wear blaze orange. It only makes you easier to see which makes you a better target! ;\)

Just thought I'd add that the area in general quiets down pretty fast after the event also.

Yeah, I guess my main concerns is getting a good table at Rafferty's that evening. \:\)

Yeah it is a little busier in the area that weekend but there are still plenty of places to fish. Try some of the smaller lakes for crappies and sunfish. Don't worry about bait we are always full for contest weekend. If we run low we just make a call and they send more out to us.

Is it safe to drive my truck out on the ice? How much do you have on Gull with the recent cold snap?

I just talked to one of our guides that has some rental fish houses out on Gull. He said they have been driving out for about a week now and they have between 16-20 inches on the north end of the lake. The conditions have been good just be careful for any new cracks that may have appeared. We haven't seen any bad ones yet but you never know when one might pop up.
