      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 .

I am braving the cold today by watching the Pro-Bowl in my warm house with a cold beer.

Good luck out there if you go! Be safe.

wishing for walleyes

I went out from 8-1 today.Actually was not bad out there.The only frost build up i had was on the inside of my tub where it was facing the -40 wind.The thinsulate material is well worth the extra money to me.The carp were hanging around my camera sitting on the bottom right in front of it.

A little off topic but i survived the ice-fishing contest on Le Homme Dieu in Alexandria yesterday, got out of the the truck at 11:30am with the truck gauge reading 8 degrees and sat in my chair trying to fish until 3:00pm then got back in the truck and the gauge read -5 degrees, and with the wind howling in was absolutly brutal. No fish were caught in the group of 16 but it was money well spent and went towards a good cause.

I was out Saturday morning, it wasnt to bad. I had full intentions on going out Sunday morning, but I over slept. Then figured I would go out in the afternoon, but decided to watch football, hockey, and basketball. I figured there is going to be plenty of days to get out on the ice yet this year, the way the weather is going.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
