      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 .

Lake Ice/Snow/Slush Conditions

Recommended Posts

Surface Tension

One would think with the last storms the lakes would be deep with snow and slush. Not so. I was out on the sled Sunday and found no slush what so ever on Fish lake. Snow drifts were so wind compacted that you could ride over the tops of them with no sinking in.

Ice fishing isn't over. Can't wait for rising temps and melting snow to filter through the ice. That seems to get the gills popping.

Gills and warm temps sound great. I think the snow will melt fast but one will never now grin.gif.

I was up at the cabin over the weekend . Had my fish house out on Lax . We plowed a road out to get the house off . Took almost 3 hours with 2 trucks all chained up . We did'nt run into any slush along the way. The snow varyied from bare ice in 1 little spot to 3 1/2 ft. . It averaged at about 16" deep. Right by the fish house there was a 4' drift wrapping around it . When we started breaking away the banking we found that the wholes had barely froze from the weekend before .The water was right at the bottom of the skids that were sitting on 3" of blocks . I was glad that I did'nt wait until next weekend .Half the road blew shut on Sunday .
