      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 .

Atta boy! You maybe could post your pic over in the panfish forum under the weather related post from earlier today.It might give the folks the idea that cold weather conditions are not a lost cause situation, for catching the fish.I usually don't visit here too often,but the reason I was in this forum was I was looking for anything recent on Big Stone Lake.

TOO COLD?!?!? I ended up with 3 eyes and 2 cats just before dark. Catfish are a hoot to catch through the ice, gotta love those whiskers!

These must have come from a SD lake because our limit of crappies in MN is 10. Nice batch of fish. What's the length of the largest crappie?

Perchpounder is the master of pannies down here. He has so many spots people think he is a leopard. Chris, I figured with the cold and the swap meet in SF you would have stayed home this weekend. guess I was wrong. nice catch.

Nice fish Perchpounder!!!

Too cold?? No way. I just got back from URL. It was a bit chilly, but never too cold.

By the way Chris, I have your sign and bait puck. Next time we hook up on the ice I'll return them.

When did the limit drop to 10? jk. Yeah they were caught in IA but the IGL maybe not? those are just the ones I kept we had 43 total the biggest one kept was 13.5. It bit so high in the column it hit the ice when I set the hook. Who said the fish move deeper in the middle of winter? those were caught in less than 6' of water and no live bait was needed. Im not too worried BG I know where it's at I forgot about it until friday when I was getting my stuff ready. It was a little slower today we only ended up with around 30 in about 3 hours I think, but man did they get picky. Sorry no camera today maybe next week.

BG I could have used you there saturday that crappie would have made another nice avatar no? Oh well maybe next time.

Perchpounder, you're a confusing guy. Your location shows SD and MN and you go to IA to catch your fish. Evidentally, you know what you're doing.

Trust me im no master but I can get it done on occaision. the guys I fish with down there will make me look silly about 70% of the time. I really like the new camera I just wish I would have had more gas in my auger so I could have stayed ahead of the fish I could see on it.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar. 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
