      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 .

There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.:lol:

Few lakes around Grand rapids that I fish have 6-8 inches of ice and these are 600+ acers and some over 50 ft deep. I'm heading up by bowstring this afternoon and I'll give you a report.

I didn't fall in :) Ended up not fishing bowstring. When I got up north buddy of mine had a crazy idea to grab the wheelers and go on a wild goose chase for crappies. Fished a smaller lake, six inches of ice in the area. We didn't take the wheelers out. Going to try and convince him to chase walleye on string this evening

Got out briefly before the storm, pouring rain and lighting is a deterrent for me. I went out of the northwest access. There is about a two foot high pressure ridge where I have in red on the map. Deepest I could get was 18 ft without crossing it. Up to it and west there is 8.5 inches I measured with a tape. The northeast access has about three feet of ice pushed up on it. Didn't check the south end or cow bay access. It's almost a mile from the access to that ridge
