      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 .

Crappies are moving

Recommended Posts

We are starting to see the crappie activity increase. The fish are not jumping out of the holes and into a bucket but they are snapping for the anglers that are willing to drill some holes. It would appar as if we have many small schools traveling around and getting in front of them is the trick. Drill and move until you get bit then try to stay above them in your pre-drilled line of holes. Follow them to the end until they dissappear then start checking holes for the next group. It is a Crappie enduro, lots of running around but fun...more like hunting/stalking then fishing. Once you get tired and the sun goes down head back tom the shack and set up for the night bite that has been occuring from 8pm-2am. Hole hopping in the dark does not appear to produce the same bite as the daytime, night biters appear to stall in a smaller area during darkness.

Thinking about making a day trip this Saturday, my first and only this year. Any fish showing up near the "highway" or are they scattered across the sea of ice smile.gif.

tdb I was up there this morning and we needed at 12 inch on the main sheet of ice. We also fished near a heave and we needeed an 18 and a 12 inch to get through. I would save the trouble and put it on before you leave home.

Did not mean to be a smart (Contact Us Please)-(yes I did) but any time you fish north of Bemidji starting in Feb. you will need an extension, 9 out of ten years. Sorry if I offended you, the important thing is to have a blast while you are up! there.

I put the extensions on New years day and take them off in November for first ice.
