      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 .

Just got back

Recommended Posts

Three of us just got back. We went up on Thursday hoping that birchdale would open up since the reports were starting to sound like that. Boy was that a waste. There was still people icefishing by birchdale. We sat at the access at Franz Jevne for two days watching the ice and it barely changed. Small boats were pushing out across the 40yards of ice but no walleyes to report anyway. Bigger boats didn't stand a chance getting past the ice(thats why we sat in the parking lot for two days). With the forcast for the week I won't even think of going back until about April 11 or 12. Good luck to everyone else though.

I'm sorry !! I had too, (APRIL FOOLS) I am bored and want to be fishing, It is just a week or so away, if at all. I know there are people out there feeling this pain. I thought I would throw out a couple stats from a couple years back (the whole 100 fish thing ) was the truth a couple years ago, that whole ramps not crowded would always be a lie !!! See ya on the water someday smile.gif

Fished Friday and Saturday. We had to put in at Pelland on Friday. Had a few on early in the morning. Then got really slow. Talked to a few guys that drove to International Falls that actually caught some below the dam. So we went there on Saturday and caught a few Sauger's and hooked into but couldn't land a big sturgeon. I don't think that the fish are moving into the river yet. That and when we were fishing below the Little and Big Forks, the water was a little cloudy. I think that it still may be a little early over Easter weekend but i'm sure that I will be wrong. My gut feeling is that the best bite is going to be in the middle of the week between Easter and the last weekend. Sucks for me.

Wow this thread is quiet for this time of year. Sounds like many people are opting not to go this weekend either. Did the water cloud up??

Yes, and it rained and snowed.

Did I have fun though, yes...

Would I do it again, yes.

Will you get 100 walleyes tomorrow at Birchdale, I'd guess not. The guys on the lake all week were slaying them icefishing, but I'm not a fan of swimming to an icecube with my auger. They are in the river too, but conditions aren't perfect for great walleye days currently, but like always on the Rainy, that can change quickly.
