      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 .

Been there 3 or 4 times.

It's like trying to catch a fish at a vikings game.

It's a blast though. And if you do catch anything you get a sweet prize.

Pack light, dress warm, bring enough beer wink I learned from folks who said pack light, they were right. You will also need a chisel. Can likely borrow one, but I bring one of those smaller hammer-type chisels. If you use chisel, and you will need one (did I mention that?) make sure to put a sling on it. I watched two nice new chisels do down the holes last year, ha! Thankfully not mine smile

I bring a 6-7 gallon bucket with a nice padded snap-on seat, and a light rod bag. That contains everything I need. Also have a plastic bag ready BEFORE you catch a fish. Good luck, it is fun, and I am still a rookie compared to most up there.

Do not bring any glass bottles! I learned the hard way a few years back. Blackberry brandy and coffee don't mix. Well my dad thought it did!

I can't wait! This will be my 5th year. I've hit the board every time up there, including a 4th place finish last year. Make sure to bring your ice cleats, chisel, and a coffee can with charcoal or a mr. heater to keep your hole open.

Any guesses on the high score? I'm going to say 285 will win it.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
