      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 .

Ice Fishing on the Rainy River

Recommended Posts

RoyalDutchman

Winter is finally here!! It has been snowing a little bit so far today but we haven't gotten the big storm they were talking. We are hoping it misses us! We have some groups that have been fishing down by the airport in the evenings and have been doing really good. They are walking out and remember to be safe! Grant and I are hoping to get out there one of these nights. It's been a busy week so far but hoping if the storm misses us we will be able to fish tomorrow evening or Friday. We will keep you updated on the fishing.

We didn't make it out fishing but we did hear from some friends that they have still been doing both on the river and the lake. Most of our friends are now fishing the lake. We have seen pictures of some nice 28 inch walleyes caught on the lake. Remember to be safe! We have been having cold days and nights for awhile.

Sorry I just saw your post...For some reason I have a big problem getting anywhere on this site. I have tried multiple times in the last few weeks and can't get anywhere. It took me a half hour just to get to this post.

The ice is good on the River in front of us and we don't see any slush out there anymore.

Fishing report on January 10th, 2014:

Some groups reported keeping 13 or more fish for the day. We had beautiful weather and even some snow flurries later in the day. The groups were hoping fishing would be about the same today. They were fishing in about 27 plus feet of water. We haven't heard much for reports on the Rainy River lately but we have seen many locals fishing up river from us. One of our guests tried by the airport during the day and caught some keepers during the day.

Grant and I went out fishing for a few hours on Monday right before dark. Grant had a bite and missed it and I never had a bite but we still had fun. We tried fishing right in front of our place. There was another house closer towards shore and they didn't catch anything either in the few hours.

I talked to a few different groups about fishing yesterday (Tuesday, January 14th) and they said it was a lot slower than Monday but still caught some fish. We are suppose to get some snow today and tomorrow is suppose to be windy. Hopefully the fishing is good this weekend!
