      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 .

What area are you going to fish? It is going to be very sloppy, but hopefully the roads will be open. I do not know if it will be melted down enough to get off the roads or not. I kind of doubt it. I am going to call Jason at Gibbins Ice Fishing this afternoon to get an update. I will give a report after that.

I spoke with both Adrians and Gibbins today and was told driving would not be a problem this weekend.<P>It will be wet and sloppy though. I would go with a 4 wheel drive if possible.

I went up yesterday and took our house off of LOW (Adrians Road). I didn't go out far but to me the road looked to be in great shape. I would think by tomorrow or Sat. things will be sloppy but passable with a 4 WD. If it rains that snow will be gone in a hurry.

Well the snow has been dissappearing quick. Lot's of water out there as of yesterday. I'd say travel is better now than it has been for weeks. We took atv's out Pike fishing yesterday, got around all over no problem. I saw 2 p/u's drive out to Elm from Springsteel, they looked like they made her no problem out and back. Also spoke with a couple of kids in a Chevy on Wednesday, They accessed at Swift ditch and cross coutried it all the way up to where we were near Springsteel!!! They said that there was a few 'bad' spots but they made it through.<P>Bring shovels anyways!<P>Regards....fiskyknut

Anyone know how the weather is gonna hold up this weekend?? This has been the warmest & nicest week probably since last October. With the luck I've had this winter, I'm expecting the worst now. My parents called from Crookston last night and said 1-2" rain are expected with a flash flood watch out. Hope the weathermen are wrong on that one.<P>Anyway, will be out of Springsteel tomorrow morning- Rain or shine.<P>Be safe everyone, heard a couple vehicles went through on Devils Lake the other day. I know Dakota has been much warmer but you never know.

Freewheeler

Iceboy16<BR> Just got back myself from the Lake and didn't have any problems getting around with the wheelers. We were in the wash area and wheelers and 4WD small pickup were getting around no problem.[that I could see] Easy going in the Morning when everythings still crisp, but a few inches of softstuff later on when the sun heats her up. Don't forget your rain gear or you'll be getting a little damp while in transit. Good Luck

My father, uncle and myslef were on Zippel on Wednesday with no shirts on, very nice day!<P>We did pretty good in 25 feet off hot shot road. My dad built a 7 foot snow man, it may still be there! Some guys fishing in the resorts houses close by did very lousy. Emerald shiners are a must. <P>We fished the same spot for one full day and the second day until 3pm. We each easily caught 25 fish. Nothing over 1.5 pounds.

There is usually ice on the lake <BR>when the season closes on April 15th. <BR>Most of the time it is still fishable ice<BR>(lake ice is good, shoreline ice is crappy)<P>Sometimes it is a push to get the ice off<BR>by the opener. By early May the ice is<BR>going pretty fast.<P>Anyone keeping a log?<P><P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio
