      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 .

Best Ice Fishing Trip

Recommended Posts

Where was the best Ice Fishing trip youve ever been on? Im looking to make a once in a lifetime walleye/crappie trip this winter. Im open to whatever wherever. I can bring my wheelhouse or go fully guided.

Im looking for something I will talk about for the rest of my life!

Lets hear some stories.

We went to Devils lake last year, I wasnt impressed. I have heard alot of good things about the Canadian side of LOTW.

I know it sounds cliche, but the group you are with, whether they are family or friends will usually make the most memorable trips. My buddies from high school/college and I are planning our 4th annual trip. The past 3 years were Red, Mille Lacs, and Waubay. We slammed the walleyes on each trip, but very few of the fish are involved in the "remember when..." stories.

I think if you are looking to catch fish that you will remember forever I would consider Lake Winnipeg/Red River.

I'm with MattL on this one. Life is all about the stories. The time my friend sat in the outhouse on RED LAKE for an hour. When I asked why he was gone so long he replied "I was just waiting for the Sunday paper" and " never did get that coffee I ordered". That's what makes a trip memorable for me.

Lake of the Woods. Fished it for the 1st time in 2011, been back every march since! It's the only fishing trip all year I specifically target walleye. But am happier when I catch tullibee! Trophy potential for several species is a plus also.
