      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 .

Late March Ice Conditions Bemidji/Cass/Winnie

What is the ice like on these lakes the last week of march during a typical winter? Would going up there the last weekend of march be out of the question this year?

What's a typical winter anymore? LOL...seems the winters are so up and down you don't have a clue as to what to expect. This winter has been colder than the previous 3, so if that's any indication I'd say the ice should be okay for foot travel, possibly ATV's, at that time. The main body of water/ice usually isn't the main concern, it's the shoreline ice that deteriates quickly as the temps climb and limiting access.

Yes, shoreline ice is my main concern as well. I'm not worried about having to walk, I know a few good spots that are within walking distance. However, I'm not THAT addicted to ice fishing where I'm willing to place boards or planks across open water to get to the ice. I guess I'll just wait and see what happens, but being that this is the coldest winter we've had in 10 years I'm liking my chances. We've got 30 inches of ice down here in the metro for pete's sake!!! grin.gif

I agree JB, I'm liking our chances of a late ice season this year. Our problem was we had so much snow early on that the ice was slow in developing, but we have good ice depth now. Plus we're supposed to be -20 actual temps for the next few nights, so we'll still be making ice for a bit. Good luck when you get up this way.
