      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!!!


Winter is that you?

Who thinks this map is true? I'm a bit skeptical im in central MN there saying 8-11 inches? I'm waiting till Thursday if it still looks like a decent amount the sleds are coming to the front of the shed... to ride around in the yard!:)  Sounds like it wouldn't be around for long. But the lows for weekend look like we may be really cooling down the lakes... we might even be making some ice!

We're down to a predicted @4" here in the Duluth area.  With the warm ground and the expected rain to start, I'm even wondering how much will actually accumulate out of this now.  


Still gonna get the blower and sleds fired up tomorrow just in case (they are still saying that there is a 50-75 mile deviation possible in the storm track, heavier snow is forecast to stay NW of Duluth)

I'm heading in to Ground Zero area Friday evening for the last weekend of Deer hunting. :eek:


Good Luck!!  

I just hope the rain that comes first doesnt decide to freeze down on the roads.

Junior has his first B-Ball tourney this weekend here in Duluth, so we will be in and out of the blinds both days.

Rain just turned over to snow here on top of the hill in Duluth.  Even had some Thundersnow a few minutes ago (pretty cool seeing lightening bolts thru driving snow showers!)

They have upped the forecast for Cloquet to 6-12 now, so we will see what we get.

Well it was true. I was stuck in my buddies cabin for two days up by Outing MN Deer Hunting with no power and only a fire place for heat and there was easy 12" or more inches where we were. Pretty cool to see the power guys come down the wire line checking for downed trees in a tracked John Deer 4 wheeler! They were going through any thing!

Wasn't all bad passed on 8 Doe's and a small spike Sunday morning before heading home at noon.

    • Dandy Gobbler Don!
    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
