      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 .

Farmers' Almanac predicts numbing cold this winter

Recommended Posts

If the heat doesn't get turned on soon, the lakes will freeze up earlier than normal as they aren't as warm as they typically are at this time. Thanksgiving Ice Fishing GTG???

The Farmers Almanac prediction is based on past years --- they say cold and a lot of snow for this winter ......

The National Weather Service is predicting a warmer than normal winter this year, based on the weather conditions and jet stream in the Pacific Ocean that they are seeing right now .....

Anybody know of a "tie-breaker" we can use laugh

Let it be super duper cold (and calm) the last few days of november and the first few days of december...after that let it stay above 25 smile

I'd rather we miss out on the snow, some of the places I would like to fish this winter are quite remote and do not receive visits from the plow.

If you watch where ladybugs spend winter you will know how harsh the weather will be. If they stay near an easy exit then it will be warm and if they go out of their way to find a sure warm spot then it will be cold. Best predictor in nature supposedly. I forsee a coat, gloves, boots, long underwear etc regardless.

My Indian friends up north always tell me you can tell how cold it will be in the winter by the size of the whiteman's wood pile.

How's that for solid biology?

Al Gore? Isnt he the guy who claimed to invent the worlds largest source of kiddee porn? Did the Farmers Almanac also forecast numbing cold this summer? I expect numbing cold in January. Its when you have it in August you gotta wonder whats up. I`d like to beleive in global warming but since its not even Labor Day and I had to talk my wife out of turning on the furnace already, I`m skeptical.

Bring on the ice, the earlier the better. I haven't made it out much for open water fishing this year but I am out every weekend through out the whole winter. I am ready and so is my Ice Gator and my Marcum!!!!!

I need to make up for lost open water time too. I also would like my children to experience the thrill(haha) of trick-or-treating in snowpants. They can earn that candy like I did. LOL
