      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 .

Recommended Posts

Hey Jon P. I was passing through Waskish late Monday night on my way to the east coast and man was it raining. A few times I had to slow down to about 40-45 mph and with that new blacktop it was hard to see. Just curious on how much rain fell that night. Hope all is well! B-dude

As normal it rained like heck to the south of us and to the north of us with little here. In Waskish proper I had 1/2" in the rain gauge the second night of rain...after we patched the hole in the rain gauge. It was one of those short lived heavy showers.

We finally got a good shot of rain today. 70 and 80% percent chances produced nothing but todays 90% chance finally delivered. grin.gif From May to Sept 06 we were 11 inches below normal, no real snow all winter and a dry spring so mud puddles are nice to see.

Jon was out fishing through it, hope he had a rain coat. hehehehe

I'm not sure of the amount of rain but I know one thing the carpet in the boat is really clean!

Had a nice weekend, minus the rain on Saturday.

It was fun visiting with your family.

Was hoping to see your boat, but appreciated you honesty that the weekend was poor after the storm.

Here is some pictures at Red on the river, but all 17" and up.

We did have luck for a few hours at Blackduck on Monday.

It is starting to pick up a little but that is thick as chocolate milk. Just a few calm days would be nice...heck even one would be good.

the wind is supposed to be decent the rest of the week. what are the odds it will clear up enough to help the bite?.

It is going to help, that is for sure. What would really clear the lake up is calm weather and a good rain mixed in. Why the rain clears that lake so fast is way beyond my little brain but it does.

The old rule of thumb was one day of wind is good for two days of slower fishing...we are on day fifteen straight with winds and rollers coming from one direction or another.

Been picking up crappies every day along with the walleyes half of them havent spawned yet. Strong wind every day makes ancoring the best way to fish.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
