      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 .

The gang is off to do some environmental work in Grand Rapids and then they will flip their hats and head to Upper Red Lake for some repair work and modifications to our houses. I will stay back for as long as I can and work on The Ranger aka the Honey Badger. The other day when the boys were installing the cab they asked if I wanted to replace some parts that have seen its share of battle after running my hand across them it was like reading brail how could I, the stories this machine could tell.

This is how it is every year you go up repair some things from the previous year and all these good memories come to mind from the battles you fought and to the fish you caught, sometimes after watching the tape you work to change things, others things no way. Memories come at you faster than you can take them in during the season and when the season is over you have the rest of the year to reflect on it all. It’s a beautiful thing.

Brad Hawthorne will be meeting up with the guys to help out and do some fishing next week; the guy has got a motor in him like no one I have ever met. Brad and I met last year, he had some questions on fish house construction and I had some questions regarding fishing after all it’s entirely all the guy does. It didn’t take long to figure out that working together was beneficial to both of our guests. Brad will be up on Upper Red Lake this season and we are looking forward to it and welcome him as our fishing Oracle.

I am looking forward to getting up there next week with the guys and get some fishing time in after chores and maybe a little bird hunting time. We will be keeping you updated.

With the guys up on Upper Red getting some work done on the houses for the upcoming ice fishing season we also had a few things going on down on Mille Lacs.

Our camping sites out of Red Door are coming along in the new park and the guys got the Ranger tracked up for winter. I also had Danny swing in and pay for are new launch boat, this will be a nice addition. As of now we are looking at different options with the boat and it has many applications we can apply it to in our plans on Mille Lacs or Upper Red.

The camp sites out of Rogers on Upper Red are just waiting until spring and all have docks but for now its all working on ice fishing. I think we will see an early ice season on Upper Red this year with shallow water and cooler lake temps I would not be surprised.

It looks like our launch boat is heading to The Red Door Resort on Mille Lacs for 2014 where it will be modified over the year to better fit Upper Red.

The Ranger got tracked up but it got left in the yard so we changed it up some so Brad will have a nicer ride this year. I figured with Brad setting up portable options for our guests that comes with there booked house we should do it in style. I like to keep it sandals on ice but if a guy wants to put his boots on and head out for the day we are ready for that as well. I am looking forward to getting up there and get some fishing in.
