      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 .

March Gators

Seven of us are driving up march 9th to fish out of Borderview Lodge. We want to fish for Northerns during the day. Some people have been telling us to fish in 6 FOW. I find that hard to believe. With 3 1/2+ feet of ice is it possible for these fish to be that shallow? What are your thoughts on how deep to fish. My guess is that we will be somewere around Pine Island. I've never fished LOW before and I CAN'T WAIT!

We went up there around pine last year and got two flags all day, we were fishing in about the same depth. THe water was a little murky The flag produced a 36" northern but all in all I've always had a little better luck on the other side of the lake. By no means does this mean that this area won't produce for you but I'm just giving you my report from last year around the same time.

Oh boy my blood is pumping just thinking about them big toothy critters. Yes, Stert shallow an move your tip ups out a little deeper. I like to fish twin island in march for gaters, an like to cover a variety depth. I landed a 23lber last year that came from two feet of water under the ice. then a 18 that came from 4 half feet under ice then a 12 that came from 6 feet under ice. I know of a 25lber that came from 14' last wensday out of zipple, which is a great area to fish pick early. with this thick of ice we should be able to go till mid april God willing. Boar

I have fished them before with 3.5 foot of ice in about 4-5 feet of water. You'd swear there was no way those things were down there in that little amount of water...but we had flags flying all over the place...it was crazy. Getting them turned up the hole...was a little difficutl! smile.gif
