      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 .

Sleeper houses on LOW????

Recommended Posts

Shorthair Guy

Hey guys I know that it is a bit early to be asking this but I am in charge of the trip and want to get a bit of jump on it. We are not interested in staying in a lodge kind of like to stay out on the ice reguardless of the lack of night bite. There would be 5-6 of us. Any help or info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!<P>Thanks Shorthair Guy

We stayed in Ballard's sleepers last year. First time doing that, I was kind of dreading it, because have always enjoyed a shower, etc. We had a great time and will be doing it again. During the day, we'd get a knock on our doors about 5-6 times with Ballards' employees asking how things were, etc. Hospitality was great and the sleepers were comfortable. <P>Although there are 4 beds, I'd sugges three to a house. The extra bed is really nice for your clothes and other items. If you have access to snowmobiles, follow the bombers out with them. That way you can go for a nice cruise, day or night, if the fish aren't biting. Make sure you have your gps with if you do that.<P>Good Luck!<P>MJ

Anyone know why the Gibbin's page is down? <P>Suspect they may have cut'er off for the Summer but time waits on no man - planning for the ice!<P>Had fair luck there last Feb, and I agree with Dr. Bob's past posts on the cost when you take the family - it's really the way to go.<P>Hard to beat Glenn and Pam at Riverbend for day trips though.

New Yankee: How are things in Sioux Falls? Its been busy up here. Getting in lots of bass fishing and also some nice bonus walleyes on the spinners as well. Just haven't been able to pull enough time off to head to LOW for the soft water. Just think in four months we could be drilling holes again. Take Care, Bill

Hey Bill, good to "hear" from you. Staying busy as well. Been trying to learn this walleye 'bidness - I fish instead of catch most days!<P>The lakes down in this part of the state are like cereal bowls with water in them - not much structure and mostly shallow. Hard for a Southern boy used to big Corps of Engineer/Tenn Valley Auth lakes to get used to. Suspect I may feel more at home on the Missouri river, so will be trying that out soon.<P>If you would, drop me a line at ramagie@sio.midco.net with the dates you're up at the Bend - I've gotta get a trip put together and would certainly enjoy swapping some fish tales w/you!<P>Bob<p>[This message has been edited by New Yankee (edited 07-26-2004).]

Bob: I will do that regarding the trips this winter. I have those in my date book at the office. I will email you the dates that we have reserved. There are five weekends. <P>Oahe has some pretty good walleye action out your way. Not too sure how far that would be from Sioux Falls though. Ya those dish pan lakes can be tough to put a pattern together on. We've been bangin the bass over here with some bonus eyes up to 27" coming to the boat. Released all the eyes though and the bass to. Just love to hook em up for the fight. I'll email you within the next couple of days. Bill
