      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 .

Too early for a trip?

Recommended Posts

Thinking about planning a trip up there for the weekend of Jan 17-20. Is this too early to be able to get out on the ice with vehicles?

Well you never know what the weather will do, but last year we drive out at Morris Point the day after X-Mas when we came up. It was not the most comfortable ice to be driving on especially with 4 inches of water on top and you could see right through the ice no problem. Check with the resorts, but I wouldn't think it would be a problem.

In ice fishing as in life there are no sure things. That said, if they're not driving out on LOW by mid Jan. it will be a first! I wouldn't worry if I were you. Come on up and good luck fishing. Ol'Sneller

MN Big: Well last year I was driving my Kawasaki Mule on the ice December 10. Several Resorts were pulling their houses out using Compacts that weekend and before Xmas I saw several full size units on the ice. Adrian's marks the road and Brian was driving his pickup marking the trail mid December...The next weekend was in full swing with everything on the ice. January should be no problems... Kaz

well, in that case I was thinking about Dec 27th-30th too but thought it was too early. I might have to take a second look at it

MNBIGBEAR-<P>It all depends on how this winter will shape up really. We've had one of the warmest Septembers on record in awhile. Does that mean the warmth will continue or does that mean its going to snap and we're going to get cold weather. I think it will be one of the extremes but I'm not sure which one.<P>Last winter was pretty early, Red Lake had 7+ inches Thanksgiving day out 2 miles onto the lake. I believe the year before I was up out of Zippel Bay on LOW around Christmas and we had 4-6 inches of ice and it had broken up badly before we got there. It was a little sketchy out there. Its pretty hard to say.<P>I would say later half of December would be a reasonable expectation but it is impossible to say.

Hey MN big; If you want a forsure on ice travel I recommend snow mobile or four wheeler. This would depend on snow or not. But if you want to get out and be mobile. Its the only way to go up here.
