      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 .

Babler's Road, Gull Rock

Recommended Posts

TooBusy

Just returned from fishing near Gull Rock. Fishing was quite slow, but we managed to find enough to make a meal. Talked to Richard Babler and at this point he is certainly not encouraging pickups in the area. The main problem is the ice has a ton of breakers and areas of really choppy ice. He said that he probably was not going to be able to keep a road plowed this year as all those ice chunks are just too hard on equipment. He thought he was going to have to put up a sign that said he is granting access, but beyond that you are pretty much on your own. He really would like to take care of a road, but just doesn't think it will go this year. Right now people could probably drive on the ice, but I don't think he wants people to bring a bunch of permanent houses out there that he can't get at after a snow/wind.

I dont like the sounds of Richard not keeping up a road this year. Does anyone know if the guys over at longpoint maintain a road, going out to Twin Islands? We have used Bablers access for a number of years to fish near the Islands but have had to fight some tough going to get to and from, as there has never really been a road going that direction. Why does a guy always want to go where its the toughest to get to? Its like standing on the river bank and casting your line clear across to the other side. It Just has to be better fishing over there!!!!

Fished Gull Rock on 12-26...........Four guys caught our 8 fish a piece....Took awhile, but we managed to fill out...About Bablers road...we had 19 inches of ice at Gull Rock, and we when in the spot that you could tell was the area that was open(because it was the only area that was smooth) YES the ice is rough, but man if I was Richard I would do anything there is to make a road out to Gull/16....Maybe he has made enough 5 dollar bills to retire?????
