      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 .

We went out of Hunters yesterday...they are plowing and they are out to the 7 mile flats area, but unless you have a snowmobile, you aren't gonna be going to far off the roads! You best be in shape if you do.

As of yesterday, alot of the roads were pretty skinny and you, or someone else is going to be schmidt out of luck if you meet one another....not a whole lot of turn arounds.

Even the plow trucks got stuck in the mush....we were B.S.ing and took a left instead of a right and wound up being the first ones on a new road that was being plowed out to a new flats area....the trucks went right to it and got stuck. Once they got loose, they made a turn around, advised us that it was a dynomite place to fish and took off in a new direction.

We set up, cut about 10-15 holes from about 25 feet on top of the flat, to about 35 feet off the side. We worked the area for about 3 hours in the late afternoon, until about 5:30 and we threw the book at em!

We got 5 nice walleyes, first time I ever cursed catching a walleye....one jumbo and one standard sized perch...a guy that had come out prior on a snowmobile and had been there all day, had 4 perch. At least I was able to get a little action with the walleyes, even if they had to be returned to the lake...still gave ya hope that it was a jumbo, jumbo! :-)

We talked to several people that had come from several different areas and they said that they hadn't caught anything and hadn't seen much caught...I'm sure there were exceptions, someone is always haulin somewhere, but it wasn't us and it wasn't them!

The people at Hunters were pleasant and accomodating, I met George out on the lake and he seemed pretty pleasant also. I sure hope that I can get up there again once the snow melts down...when we went out we crossed a small water spot and when we came in, it was a lake! Rooster tails above the hood for about 30 yards!

Hey Grebe, I was up yesterday also. Slow for us as well. Tried the flats, and around 2 mile, and I caught 3 keeper perch all day.Got 2 eyes out on the flats, and nothing else. Nice weather, but terrible fishing! Them roads were something else, one plow width wide once you got out a ways, and no where to try and park?

JLT....you weren't in one of the red houses out on 7 mile, were youw? I believe it was 7 mile? We were in a Maroon Ranger just south of there on the next flat, a small one...there was a teepee type house close to us.

A couple of guys stayed out on what I believe was 7 mile, they were still there when we were leaving...looked like they maybe had an SUV and they were fishing in the open.

Either they were die hards like us, or they were haulin?

We fished outside, but we were on the Boot. I saw several flats from there that were "sprinkled" with fishermen. Hope the perchin picks up soon, as it has been a dismal year for me so far. frown.gif
