      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

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.

      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.

      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!

      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
