      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 .

Snow storm fishing!

I had the the opportunity to finally do some fishing yesterday. I fished from 11:30 a.m. till about 2 p.m. The snow was coming down pretty good, but the fish were snapping. I ended up catching a couple of dozen bluegills, the majority of which were over 8", and 5 bass. Not bad for a metro day bite. Anyone else make it out in the snow?

I was out on Chisago in the wheeled house from Friday afternoon to Sunday Morning. Snow drifted up wind of the fish house nearly 3'! The bite was off and on, but I managed to catch a few limits of pannies and some decent crappie (all released). ShawnnyB managed a few keeper pannies, 1 bass and a 20" Northern.

Surprisingly, I didn't have any trouble getting off the lake this morning, even going through snow drifts over my bumper. It was a good time sleeping with the wind blowing against the tin house! lol

Got on a great backwater river crappie bite Saturday in spite of the wind and snow. At least it held the competition at bay. We're going to have to make a big trip before the ice goes out. You, me Cyberfish and Casey.

Yeah Jack we ought to get out and do some more fishing before ice out. We recently found out that my wife is pregnant, so this is quite possibly my last opportunity to do unfettered ice fishing for the next decade or two. I’m going down to Iowa this weekend, but after this, I should be free till spring…

Congrats on the good news, Carp. God is good. Any time you guys want a free backwater guide service just let me know. Better hurry though, the ice will go fast.
