      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 .

white out!

Recommended Posts

jigglestick

did anybody else get caught in the white out that popped up out of nowhere in a matter of minutes on sunday?

it came in so fast, anybody out a ways off of the roads may have easily been trapped by white blindness that they may have easily been lost, stuck or turned around not knowing which way to go.

I was out there and with the help of my gps, which was also struggling to maintain it's own bearings, I managed to make my way to and back out from shore. it was nearly impossible to see more than twenty feet at times and all I could do was hope that every body made it of, or back to their shacks in time, safe and sound.

Yep, that was pretty much the epitome of "hunker down". Woulda been nice to get some pics of us blazing a path down the main road to shore Monday morning. That fresh snow was really flying in our wake. Thanks for all your help Jiggle, and to Rick and Kim for all of their services provided to us.

It was my first time ever fishing Winnie this past weekend. And boy was that white out fun!! Our heater wouldn't stay lit with the wind blowing in the vent. Then our door knob broke off and we had to bungy the door shut for the night.

All's I have to say is thanks to the guys at Denny's who came and plowed us a path off the lake on Monday morning.

I was fishing red lake by accindent, have not been there for a few years, just got set up and there was the storm. Once it started my truck was drifted in instantly, luckily I was only a hundred yards from the road. Adds to the fun, one more reason to bring the gps.

Just got back from our yearly trip. We were fishing off the west shore took off from High banks. We started packing it up but with four trucks we got caught. We decided to take the road to Dennys instead of cutting cross county and try and hit High Banks road. We picked up a truck and trailer that were stuck and had a 4-wheeler out front to find the road. We checked the milage 10 miles took us 2 hours. Thanks to the guys in the fish house that had a extra map of the Dennys road system. Just goes to show you how careful you had to be, We had locals and GPS. I was wondering if anybody got stuck out there. Later

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
