      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 .

Verizon Cell phone hunting / fishing related software application

Recommended Posts

Swill

I just wanted to share with everyone that I use a really nice cell phone software application that is really handy for hunting and fishing. It is called Weather Scout,by Gander Mountain, and when you dial into the software application with your cell phone you can view...

Radar

Forecast with wind speed, direction, etc

Weather Map

Baro Map

Fish and Game Forecast

and IR Clouds

It was a one time download for I think 5 dollars that is well worth it. I am not sure if only Verizon cell phone users can use it or not, but again this software application is very handy...

Any others out there using similar cell phone applications? I also must admit that I have played World poker tour online in my deer stand when the mid day action was really slow! smile.gif That can be fun when you are bored to death in the stand and you are trying to stick in the stand during that 10-noon slot....

yep I have the same thing on my phone only my carrier is RCC. It is kinda handy to have to see the weather forecast, radar and that kind of stuff. I have also been guilty of playing games on stand when I get bored. But I figure it is better than me getting ansy and moving around looking at everything. grin.gif I also have Fox Sports Mobile so I can keep track of my Fantasy Football Players while out hunting. What a technology, but I do feel a little guilty at times sitting out there playing with my phone. grin.gif

I use My-Cast and I think it was probably one of my best purchases this year.

Nothing can beat watching radar real time on the water.

I was looking at the Verizon web site for the Weather Scout. It states that there is a $5.95 monthly subscription. I would get it if it was a one time fee. Are you sure it is a one time fee?

One time "download", not fee wink.gif

The one thing nice about the subscription, is that you can cancel it for the months you don't need it.

My phone says "You will be charged $5.49 monthly for this app. Proceed?" when I choose Weather Scout (Verizon).

I assume from this that you pay $5.49 every month on your bill plus are charged for airtime whenever you use it.

      I have owned a place on Lake Vermilion(WE) since 2011 and have absolutely enjoyed every visit and season on the lake.  Our knowledge of the lake and fishing patterns have grown tremendously.  However, this experience has not translated success onto the ice.  We catch some fish, but feel like we should be doing better.  Typically we use small gear 1/16th or 32nd jigs with minnows, Spoons with just a minnow head or when we go after panfish we'll use wax worms.  We fish all the same spots and don't catch nearly as big or many fish.  When we do catch most of our fish, it's typically on mud flats and we drill a lot of holes.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!
