      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Alaska Weekend Report 2015 New year!

Recommended Posts

Failed to put up any close out fishing report thanks to the bustle of the Christmas Holidays. Not very much ice fishing for us, and the South Central area continued with warming trends that created unstable conditions on many lakes.

2015 Is here! We started out on new years day with a dandy lake trout caught at 90 feet below the surface. Hoping to carry that momentum into the remaining season. In addtion to the the succeful lake trout outing this last week, we all managed to catch a good size rainbow trout that is currently in 3rd place in the ICE Shanty online Tourney. The rainbow went 22 1/4 inches, good size but we will have to get out again to try upgrade the entry for a good chance at placing come the end of things with the tourney.

We had reports from others fishing the free Valley derby that was started this year by a local fishing enthusiast and sponsored by a local outlet with a $1500 fishing gear prizes. The team concept multiple day event will last through march. Fishing is being done at several lakes and a total length measurement determines the winners. First place is currenlty a tie after the first event held at Big Lake with two teams holding the same - 57 inches in total fish length.

Looking forward to colder temps in the forecast and more trips on the ice soon. Here are some of the photos from this last week.
