      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 .

Eddy:

I feel still to some degree like N.D. is home. Lived there from 1972 to 1988 and from 1991 to 2001. Fished the Red a lot, Devils Lake a good bit, Laretta a fair amount after it got turned from a slough into a lake.

The challenge for you, as I see it, is turning this board into more than simply Devils Lake, which draws far more anglers, especially in winter, than any other body of N.D. water.

Although, judging from the few Devils Lake posts, you may not have much of a challenge after all.

By the way, ever notice how many Wisconsin license plates you see plowing around the ice on Devils Lake? What is it about D.L. that brings in the cheeseheads?

Ed,
Just let us know when they are fishing Devils Lake and Loretta and we will all be happy. I never want to be the first on the ice but surely don't want to be the last!
Thinking Maple Lake by Mentor might be my first spot out.

I am more prone to hang tight to rivers, even in the winter, but eventually I do wonder on the big ice.

So far I have not got any word of any safe or even close to safe ice in the region. Warm weather is on the way again for a few days so that will slow that down too.

It is the in-between time now, kinda frustrating Eh.

Just be darn cautious folks, no need to rush anything, safe is better then wet or worse.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
