      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 .

Hey guys,

Wasn't it spring a few days ago?? As I look out my window onto the lake it's hard to believe that it was 78 degrees up here last week. The white landscape out my window could just as well be the middle of January. From the looks of it we got in the neighborhood of 3 to 5 inches of new snow in the last couple days. Much less than Duluth did I guess but man, it sure is depressing. I posted a few days ago that if the weather didn't change we would have open water in Pike bay by Easter. I'd like to at this time revise my ice out forecast for Pike bay, please don't hold your breath, you may turn blue. smile.gif

I would also like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all of you that have welcomed me back to the forum. I must say I missed all of you that have been regulars here for a long time. I still live on Lake Vermilion, I still give my personal opinions on most subjects, even if you don't want to hear them and I'm still the best looking guide

on Lake Vermilion. smile.gifsmile.gif

One thing as changed however, I bought me a new boat last fall. I picked up a 1900 Lund ProV with dual counsels and a 200hp Merc. It's much larger than the Crestliner and it flies across the water at about 60mph. After fishing with Muskie Tom in his "Big" Lund, I just had to have one. With all the extra room, my days of crouching down behind the counsel, to avoid being hit up side the head by large, multi treble hook Muskie baits, should be over. At least I hope so.... smile.gif

Hey Northlander,

I am considering it, I would guess you're talking about the "Auto Class Walleye Classic" on the 19th of May? I have already ask my old tournament partner if he would be interested, however he hasn't let me know yet.

Do you have the information for it yet? I need a number to call to get the sign up information and how much it cost. I hear they will pay 10 grand even if they don't fill up the 100 boat field.

Looks like there is a chance we could get up to another 6 inches of new snow by Wednesday...What a Bummer man. I may have to move to Florida and start guiding down there....

I hate snow and below zero in April. Wonder if this will make Pike Bay off limits on opener? I would think so.

A closing of Pike Bay for the first week may certainly be an option this year! frown.gif

Hey Jim,

You have to believe this is going to set back the walleye egg collection on the Pike river. The ice is still covering most of the river below the dam and mid 30's ain't going to melt much ice. Darn, I have a great oening day spot in Pike bay, limit out every season for the last 14 years. Now I'll have to follow Cliff around on opening day! smile.gif
