      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 .

Thank You to guys on West Rush

I want to send out a thank you to 3 different guys I seen Patrolling around on 4 wheelers today on West Rush Lake... All 3 of them stopped and picked up trash that was not their own! The community hole in front of the access was full of people and looked pretty clean.. I suspect these guys might be on top of it on a regular basis! Its nice to see someone taking action for a change.

What a zoo that lake has become! I think there were 100 people fishing out in front of the access between morning and evening.. 4 wheelers buzzing everywhere endlessly.. some on wheelie's occasionaly, a Mazda size pickup taking a joy-ride on the lake driving like a teen-ager that had his 1st beer, snowmobiles hitting mach 2... ad a whole bunch of people out enjoying a very nice day on the lake catching a good number of mostly dinky panfish with a few nice ones thrown in!

I havent been to a carnival in a long time! It was still somehow enjoyable with consistant action sitting on the bucket smelling other people's mr heaters because there were so many operating, and the occasional fog of 2 stroke from the guys that take a whole tank of gas to drill 4 holes 40' away because their blades are so dull.

There was about 9"-10" of ice where I was sitting if I had to guess.. very good ice. I dont recommend anyone driving out there, but there are bites to be had fishing in, or around the village. If you drill holes away from the village, you will soon be part of the village as it extends towards you when more people arrive, or the ones that are there move towards you seeing fish landed.

Have fun ya'll.

The dull blade guy was my favorite. I thought he would never get thru the ice. We should have challenged him to a race with the hand auger. Funny stuff.

I could have drilled a hole faster with my cigarette lighter on the last one. There were a couple others with very dull blades throughout the course of the day.

I guess when people arent getting out, they arent staying on top of the upkeep on their equipment?

My ears are still ringing from the power augers and guys with *performance exhaust* on a couple 4 wheelers. My eyes have more glazing on them than a krispy creme doughnut from staring at the flasher all day to boot.

I hate fishing in the crowds but it can be very entertaining just watching that circus. You describe it well That Guy. Cool to hear that people are picking up the trash. Thanks guys!

Are you guys trying to tell me that you like solitude when you're out fishing. grin.gif You are never going to find that on West Rush. Good to meet and fish with you guys. That hand auger of yours would have blown away some of those power augers.

The garbage out there is terrible. Between Tuesday and Wednesday a lot of it disappeared, so someone is working at it. I usually go out there with a pop bottle and come back with a handfulls of garbage. I don't get why people can't bring their garbage back off the lake. Cigarette butts, peanut shells, and sunflower seeds drive me nuts too.
