      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 .

Recommended Posts

I heard that they moved a fishing contest from the cities to up here on Pokegama. It is supposed to be a huge contest from what I hear. Does anybody know the details? When is it? How much are tickets? What is the name of it? All i heard was that it's on Pokegama Lake and is supposed to be a huge contest with alot of really big prizes. Somebody has to know some details.

The name of that contest is the Golden Rainbow. It is to my knowledge that this Contest has been canceled. I think the web site shows it is coming but they ran out of funds. This has been confirmed through the Chamber. There is a great contest coming to Pokegama Feb. 24th at the Laplante Road Landing. The contest is called The Bottom of the 9th and is hosted by the Grand Rapids Baseball Assoc. . I have been to this contest and it is awesome! One of the prizes the year is a one year lease of a new vehicle along with NUMEROUS prizes. Augers, flashers, fish houses, and many more. Also big cash prizes. Besides, the $ goes to youth baseball, a great cause.

Thats too bad that contest was cancelled. Sounded like a great event for the community to host. Is this Koenig the high school parking lot cop? It's gotta be. You are a fishing guide now? What an upgrade in career paths(no offense bmc)! I remember you from back when you first started there. So how is the fishing guide business? I've always been interested in doing something like that but it seems like a tough gig to get into. Anyways, good luck fishing and keep posting reports. This site has been pretty slow about getting fresh reports up.

GOOD LUCK FISHING

Yes this is he. The school thing has been a winter thing for about 9 years. I have been guiding for 17 years in the area and in the resort business for 20 seasons now. You are right about the contest being great for the community. It's definately too bad. The baseball programs contest is a great deal. If you have been to it, you already know about all of the prizes. Lots of fishing up north but not alot of action since the cold snap. A few of the small lakes have been producing some big gills but ya need a sled to get to them. But I guess with a name like Crappie King, you already knew that.

No offense taken, crappie king, I wish I could make that type of upgrade!!! I heard that contest from the Cities is a no go, but not sure why. The Bottom of the 9th tourney is a good time and for a good cause. It's nice to see them move it around the lake too!!! I'm planning on being there, work schedule permitting.

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.

      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.
