      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 .

Went out the first weekend of 2015 to chase lake trout and eel pout. with only 4 hours of sun light it didnt allow for much trout fishing time after we got our eskimo 949i set up and all of our gear and cots set up. Went out and drilled holes for our 7 tip ups and got back inside the shack to have some hot butter rums. Inside the house we put down a rattle reel and had a tube jig on a rod incase something showed up on the vexilar. Well at around 9 pm the rattle reel made a few dings and surprisingly enough we pulled up this guy.


at around 10 oclock the pout started to bite and by the end of the night we had 6 on the ice. Next day the temps dropped quickly and we found our selves jigging out side for lakers in 15-20 below temps. after landing a few mid 20" fish we decided we might as well retreat to the shack to jig in their. We landed a few more lakers and even another late night laker in the shack. all in all a good trip and we learned that we can comfortably sleep in our shack in -30 degree weather.
