      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 .

Dogtooth Report

Recommended Posts

Well after 4 years of fishing Dogtooth Lake in a boat, I finally made it up on the ice. Fishing was very slow and basically a bust. Fished from about noon Thursday to dark Saturday. Ice was 9-12" with little snow on top. Water clarity about 10-12ft.

Thursday I drilled 70+ holes over a mid lake reef that topped out at 4 fow. Only 1 small walleye and a little eel pout to show for it.

Friday I moved to a point in between 2 islands that dropped to 90+ fow in betweeen the islands. Set up in 24 fow on the tip of the point and again punched 30+ holes around. Only a 17" and 15" walleye to show for it.

Saturday I moved to a different reef that topped out at 11 fow and drilled another 70+ holes in the surrounding waters. No fish caught, but marked a few fish in 40+ fow.

Really dissapointing trip, but for the first time up there on the ice it was a good learning experience. I tried basically everything in the tackle box. Hard to read the flasher on the steep drops and was basically fishing blind the whole trip.

That's too bad. I too have wanted to ice fish the place we go every year in open water, wondering how it would be thru the ice. I hope to make it up there someday for hard water, but until then, I will start preparations for our May trip.
