      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 .

went out to the wid rice dam last night from about 5:00pm till dark and nothing, not even a bite. but this is my first year river fishing and i like to call my lack of success the learning curve. if anyone would like to contribute to my learning curve that would be great.

Ludzy, a buddy of mine did some snooping around there the other day and he found exactly what you did. He's got about 35 years of river experience, so it might not have been you. Tough to catch fish that aren't there...

Things should come into form over the next week, if we can miss significant rainfall.

As far as contibuting to your learning curve, I'd suggest you do some snooping in this forum. Use the search tool and see what you can dig up- tons of info about standard rigs, locations, etc. for Spring walleyes. By the way, the big three are jigs, slip rigs, and cranks.

Hey, who you callin' a "Silly Nodaker"? laugh.gif I was born and raised a MN boy, but I've been a ND resident for a number of years now. Good news is that I'm now allowed to drive in the left late, 10 miles below the speed limit, with my left blinker on! grin.gif J/K!!! I love being a ND boy! Something special about MN to me still, but I feel like I have the best of both worlds here in Fargo.

Ol sane "I have heard the river runs North and according to my calcualations I live on the RIGHT side of the river." laugh.gif The wife is a born raised Nodaker when we moved I had to fight tooth and nail to stay a Minnesotan.

Hmmmm ... You play for both teams eh? Well ya can't. You need to choose the MN side and stay away from the Dark Side of the Force.

grin.gifwink.gifcool.gif

Well, I guess it is nice to have ND plates when you drive in the passing lane at the speed of traffic in the cities. You see, they don;t get mad at the No Dakkers -- they just figure it is your first time on a road with a passing lane. grin.gifgrin.gif

Now that's funny stuff right there. wink.gif

No, no- my lack of response doesn't indicate that I don't think it's funny. Just nothin' to add, 'cause I'm "guilty as charged"!

Yep. That is the first step in the 10-step process. "How to be No-Daked"

      I recently purchased a humminbird 688ci hd ice locator and it has GPS and the option for lake master chip. I'm going to drive to Cabela's to buy a chip  and was wondering the difference between the Lake Master Minnesota and the Minnesota Plus. Anyone have any experience with these and are they worth the money. Thanks.

      I haven’t checked backwaters since last weekend, but I checked the small lake this morning and it has just under 2 inches of ice.  McNally’s has been hit pretty hard for the last 2 weeks.

      Good hearing from you, always enjoyed reading of you & Doc's adventures.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!
    • JTeeth
      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.
