      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 .

10 Days and counting! Sportland Report

Recommended Posts

Well we are now only 10 days away from the great winter Extravaganza. 3 hours of fishing excitement here on Gull Lake. The conditions are really good out there now and getting better as we have hit this cold front which is pushing temps into the negatives. It should really be driving that ice down over the next few days. I was out chasing walleyes last night on Gull. I measured about 15 inches where I was. The latest reports this week have still been decent. It has started to slow a little but anglers are still picking up a few walleyes on Gull. The crappies are starting to bite pretty good now on most of the smaller lakes. Just start looking in the deeper basins for crappies. We'll see what happens out there with this cold front. It is the first real front that we have had since the season got started. I'm sure that we will be swamped again next week with the contest but I will keep updating through the week. Remember to stop in and grab the luckiest bait in the country. We have a history of producing the contest winners. Plus parking is right across the street for the shuttles.

I am predicting a decent walleye will win it this year. We have caught and released a number of nice walleyes this winter on Gull. There have been a number of fish in the 25 inch range. Jigging spoons have produced the biggest fish. There have also been a ton of nice perch this winter so expect to see them on the board as well. Waxies are probably a good option. Whatever happens it will be a fun day. Take care and good luck!

Luck is great to have on your side. There have been some of the best fishermen I know that have never won anything and I know lots of rookies to ice fishing that have walked away with some tremendous prizes. I think if we go into it with the right attitude it will always be a great time. You just never know when the big one will come along and hit.

Just got off the lake with the Sheriff and maesured ice at 17 - 19". I'm thinking we are going to need extensions on the augers when we have 120 volunteers drill 20,000 holes. Maybe the thicker ice will quite things donw and shield the shaddows so the bigger fish will come in like they use to? With the forcast looking at a warm up beginning on Wednesday, I'm guessing there will be some larger fish caught this year. With 17 years experience, I'd suggest a chsel and keep light so you can move!
