      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 .

Morning fellas --

Been watching the forum and I am think about trying the Red in the winter. Question -- Is it really safe? You hear about people going into the river every year -- that does not sound like a good time.

If it is safe, where do you try?

Thanks

Hitman

the only consistent thing about river ice is that it is never consistent. be careful if you head out hitman, use the buddy system, and bring recovery equipment, pfd, ice picks, rope etc. river ice can be treacherous, but the rewards can be quite fruitful if you get in to the fish. If I lived closer to Fargo, I'd contemplate hitting the Red... too many lakes around here to fish

Hitman where we were fishing there was a good foot of ice, but it still a good idea to stay on the cautious side. No matter how thick the ice is it still makes a guy a bit nervous. From what I've been finding it can range from 6in to 12.

Dahitman, yep, Dead hit it on the head. However, with some common sense you can often tell what areas will be safe and unsafe. But... definitely don't start snooping alone and be certain to have picks with.

Areas I chase walleyes at are typically low flow areas that are near deep water. Look for sharp bends and deep holes. Then try find low current areas. If there's wood around, that's even better. I typically target 5 to 12 feet of water- often 7 or 8 feet. Last year I fished a spot where the best fishing was in about 12 feet.

Good luck and be careful.
