      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 .

Current VS Ice

Guys

ANy thoughts on the low current rate effecting the decay process of the ice, to me it seems slower melting than normal and of course I have zero patience grin.gif

I'm with you on the patience!

I have been thinking the current was no big deal but it is the only factor missing. Everything else is there but she just doesn't seem to get going.

Drilled at our place today and found a strong 2' of ice. Top 4" was mush as was the bottom 4". We've seen 2-3' of ice break-up with no problem in previous years.

Usually we look for wet spots but the whole river is wet with pools here & there but we just can't seem get started.

Best thing I've seen this week were the Canada geese. They are usually only a couple of days ahead of open water.

Yes without the current the break-up process will be slower than normal. I still it won't be long, but you can't help but get that itch!! My only hope is that there is not as much debris when the feeder rivers break this year. It would be nice to have great fishing all the way 'til season closes.

Sorry, M & I snuck out to the lake and brought home a bucket of fish tonight so no first hand river report.

Gail had good news though and I can't believe were not going to get somewhere with this weather. Drilling the lake today you'ld think I had a sharp auger & I know better. The river has to be totally rotten and ready to bust.

Had guys fish from Peland today and they caught fish. Not huge or bunches but threw 1 over back and kept a limit + a 45" sturgeon for fun. Not a bad day for boat fishing in March.

It's comin'!
