      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 .

Recommended Posts

it's getting on that time of year again! i can't wait, may have to call in sick on the first day. it's crazy how little fanfare college hoops gets out here in cali. too many pro teams i guess. or maybe not enough in the midwest. it's just too good to miss. cool.gif

Nothing better than March Madness. I am going to be on a cruise from the 24th-31st. I will be spending a lot of time in the sports bar the days there are games!!!! Who's your pick? I can't decide between UCLA or UNC.....

That Texas vs. A&M game last night was just a preview of what's to come. Let the madness begin!

My sleepers: Memphis and Louisville

as much as i hate to say it my only pick is ucla. not a big ucla guy, but they look pretty good. perhaps if another team has the right bracket, they could get the job done. florida is awesome, just no depth. i'd say unc is too young, but that really doesn't seem to matter anymore. i'd look for all red jerseyed big ten teams to get to the sweet 16, then all loose. the big 12 is a little down, i don't expect much from them. not sure about the big east teams or any of the other pac ten teams that were so hot early.

i just said alot of nothing, so i guess i'm still going with ucla frown.gif

I agree with a lot of what you are saying, but doesn't Texas look a lot like Syracuse when they made that great run a few years ago with Carmello. Carmello-Durant???? Playing good at the right time????

i lke durant, for a 'hot' team i like maryland. i went to iowa state, but will most often take a hot acc team over a hot big 12 team. that being said i can kinda see kansas making some noise. i realize that contadicts what i said earlier, but that's why they call it madness cool.gif

March Madness is far and away the best basketball of the year!

College basketball is still basketball. The NBA is not really basketball.

wow, what a weekend of ncaa hoops. after watching that kansas texas game, it makes me rethink my big 12 knock. they both looked like final 4 teams to me. and seeing ucla loose and ohio state struggle. it's gonna be a fun tourney.

watched the duke unc game today. i hate to say it but duke isn't even fun to watch. there were many times when there offense never made it inside the three point arc. not half the movement they had with reddick.

      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?
    • Dirtyfisheyes
      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!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
