      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 .

ice friday night?

Recommended Posts

How much ice do all you think will form in the lakes and slough areas in south central MN with a low of 18-20 degrees friday night Saturday morning? Plan on doing some scouting to find some bird on water tomorrow night, I just want to figure out how much a pain it is going to be com moring with the ice! I have a 14 ft. jon and a trolling motor so I don't have much to work with!

delta, I wouldn't worry about too much ice I'm sure that smaller ponds and potholes will have a thin layer on them but if you're hunting a bigger body of water, or something a little deeper you should be fine. I'll be doing some scouting today for tomorrow mornings hunt. good luck!

All the small holes and some of the lakes were getting iced up on the last cold snap.. its not going to take much to put some ice on many lakes.

If it gets into the teens, toss a coin if its a bigger shallow body of water, and I would guess the potholes to get a significant amount of ice overnight (up to 1/2").

Some might depend on how mch the potholes warmed up during the really warm weather we had.. we might get lucky for a night only to find a skim coat.. a couple nights of cold and we got trouble.

I think that they might get a little ice in the area's protected from the wind. Sounds like the winds are suppose to stay up for most of the night!!!

That sounds like a great idea. All you would need to do is get about fifty feet of wire, with a switch. I think you can pick up a switch at any car parts store. Then connect one wire to the battery and the other to the wire that usually connects to the battery. That is brilliant!! Great Idea. I bet you could do it for under twenty bucks!!! And the best thing, that would be perfectly legal!!!

I think Jimmy from Cottage Grove meant to reply to the Robo Duck thread.
