      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 .

It has been slow the last few times up.<P>C) Go to Red Lake and try to get some slabs<P>D) Nothing, stay home and drink.

I would say Canada, tip ups. <BR>The eye action has been miserable on the big pond. Crappies have eluded me on Red, and I can sit home and drink on days when I am not invited to Canada to fish....therefore, take it from me, Canada, monster pike on tip ups can be had while sitting on the ice with a cocktail or 8. And it is supposed to be B-E-A tiful weekend.<BR>I didn't see option D, Open water fishing on the rainy river. That's my vote for the weekend. Just my $.02<BR>

Hey birddog,<P>Is the river open and are they catching any fish???? I have never done that but really want to. Also, I have never fished northerns? What is it like. I don't know if I even believe this but my buddy who asked me to go said you can't drink out there. So, he said they sneak Vodka out in a gas can and drink screwdrivers. Is he serious, how can you have a law that you can't drink while fishing??? Those canucks really are stupid if they have a law like that. Is that true or is joking me.

I would fish Pike with tipups because you've never done it. Sounds like a good time especially with the knuckleheads you'll be fishing with. Just tell em' there will be lots of eating, lots of drinking, lots of fighting, and lots of loving. And its just gonna be you and them. I cleaned up this joke for the young FMers. Fish the PIKE..

It's true, and I think it's a good law.<P>My best friend is disabled for life, because he was drinking and being stupid on the ice with a sled.<P>There is lots of things that can go wrong out there sober. The odds of disaster magnify with booze involved.

I guess I'm with you on the no booze law.sounds like a whole lot of [PoorWordUsage] to me, you can't legislate stupidity. anyway, I'll be on my favorite lttle crappie hole, gettin' a sunburn and responsibly enjoying a cocktail. god bless the USA

everything is a privledge, life freedom happiness, nothing is for sure. the people we elect are privledged yet few these days are aware of it. privledge does not insure brains though, only confidence.

Do the shallow bite in the mornings and especially at dusk till at least a hour after dark. <P>I just got back and things are hoppin up there. Having a big fish fry tonight and planning next weekend trip, if the weather holds. Can't wait.
