      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 .

  1. Past hour
  2. Supper

    Any suggestions? I'm running out of ideas. My wife is working today but I am home in the snowstorm all day. We just had chicken wild rice soup last night and chili not too long ago so no soups and I don't feel like standing outside by the grill or smoker in this weather so what should I make for supper?
  3. Looking for a 10in Mora blade cover

    From Strikemaster..... This size blade has been discontinued since 1981. Wow.......so my auger is at best only 37 years old.......If it could only tell stories.
  4. Vikings vs eagles

  5. Just Food and Drink

    Took your advice with the left over spam this morning....
  6. Today
  7. Vikings vs eagles

    Somehow this felt like a worse beat down, oh well on to the next great loss. Younger generations got a good history lesson.

  11. "Paul and I had a great time up at Sunset Lodge this weekend. The weather was warm and allowed for some additional hole hopping. Caught many keeper walleye between 17”-19” along with good numbers of slab crappie. Paul even landed his personal best walleye.

     

    Thanks again to the awesome staff!!! Everyone does a great job making sure you have everything you need for a day on the ice."

  12. Wild Regular Season 2017-18

    Take a lesson from the vikes BB, don't pretend there is hope or you are just setting yourself up for a letdown. It will happen when it happens, this anything short of a cup run stuff is just crazy talk.

    Zimmer didn’t even talk about it.
  15. Vikings vs eagles

    Hey how bout that storm in southern minnesota.
  16. Vikings vs eagles

    I couldn’t stand it... had to turn the tv off. Worse that they have played all year...
  17. Vikings vs eagles

    At least it wasn't 41 - donut.
  18. Vikings vs eagles

    Well, that was fun.
  19. Vikings vs eagles

    They’re already defeated. They’re showing that in spades. Just gotta survive the humiliation of one more quarter. Really, I mean, they don’t even have a hint of a spark to think they could even pull off a fixed win. Brutal.
  20. Any Morson Reports?

    Holy moley. Where did you run into the slush? Was there quite a bit of snow?
  21. Vikings vs eagles

    I just got done saying that exact same thing to my wife. If the Vikings somehow come back to win this game, we'll know for sure that the NFL is fixed.....
  22. Vikings vs eagles

    Yep, shoulda went fishin’.
  23. Yesterday
  24. Hooked up with the Finicky Fooler owner and creator Tom to do some ice fishing for walleye on Petenwell Lake in central Wisconsin. We managed to catch a few jigging and and also a few on the Finicky Fooler tip ups including a nice slot walleye! Ice fishing walleye can be tough at times but I am glad we ended up getting into a few fish. We moved 3 times before we finally found some active fish away from some crowds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8dRlwxKVTI&t=1s
  25. We could be riding the nsst

    Well so much for the big storm around here.
  26. Quick ice locator holder.

    That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
  27. When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one. VERY nice. I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
