      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 .

Nells-Bells Ice fishing weekend

Recommended Posts

I got to take keven nelson AKA Nells-Bells an his son peter ice fishing for their winning photo entry in the Archery photo constest. After a few phonw calls back an fourth we were able to put togehter a weekend on Lake O Woods Jan. 26-27 Peter had practice on friday the 25th so they could not get up to warroad til the mourning of the 26th. So I prety much had everything rocking an rolling as the made their debute on the ice about 10:30 sat. morning, which was just fine cause they didnt miss much before then. After a few hand shakes an howdy do's I had holes punched for them an thier house warm an ready to go. Then to start it of Peter Hits a great fish of 19 inches, awsome way to start off the day. Keven was able to get his rod bent on nice 17 in walleye later in the day but as I had high hopes for better fish it certainly was fishing an not catching, they managed to ice a few smaller ones to throw back but nothing worthy of the frying pan, they did put up a bnus perch wich helps the number. But its not all about the numbers as it was a gergeous weekend up ther an with a full moon on LOW its as pretty as mother nature can get. I checked in on them from time to time as i had my house right next door, but pretty much let them do their thing an enjoy this opportunity togehter on LOW. I managed to add totheir bag limit with some bonus perch an some nice saugers, so they were head home with garunteed fish for sure.

Sunday morn. came an I had Ibetter hopes for the fish to turn on wich it didnt, again it was a tough bite lots of fish on the vexilar, lot of sniffers but no commiters. Kevin an peter manged a couple more fish an so did I so the pile was growing for them to go home with several good meals of fish. Around 10:00 am keven an i talked an he decided that since it was a beutifull day that to try a nother spot in the portable sounded good so we got together with a freind of mine an pointed them in a direction to try, but as it turned out it was nbot ment to be, Peter managed a tullibee an that was about it for the fish. with the long drive back home they didnt give it to much longer an we decided to part ways. If I remeber my count right, Kevin an petter went home with 8 saugers an 4 walleys, just four short of their limet, but the four bonus perch made up for it. Kevin, it was great fun, Im really glad you had the opportunity to join me for some fishing with yur son, an peter gets big fish of the trip award. It was my pleasure to have you fish with me for the weekend. full-2178-29452-img_0461.jpg

Thanks very much for posting this, boar. It sounds like the bite wasn't great, but you guys still managed to scrape together enough fish to keep the guys interested. Thanks again for doing this boar- very, very cool of you.

Kevin and Peter, I hope you guys had a great time!

I want to give a huge thank you to Jeff (aka Boar) for allowing us to come to Lake of the Woods fishing with him. We had a great time! Jeff did an awesome job of taking care of us.

Its not about how many fish you catch but more about the quality time we get to spend together doing the things we both love to do, like hunting and fishing. The memories of this trip will last a lifetime...well, unless I really do have alzheimers like my wife thinks I do. crazy

The added bonus was that we came home with some meals of fish.

Scoot - a big thanks to you again for putting this photo contest together and selecting us for this prize.

Here is a photo of the 3 of us in front of one of Jeff's friends snow machine.

Very good story, Boar. That was a very good thing you did by offering up your house. Like others have said, its not always about the catching.
