      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 .

I would guess on LOW, it will be the 1st week of Dec. also. The water temps are quite lower than last year at this time and I am expecting a cooler fall, being that the summer was so cool.

Last year in ND i was on the lakes here the week after thanksgiving. It feels like the nights are really cooling off now. Maybe the last weekend in Nov the bays will be frozen.

They are predicting temps in the 40's Saturday night here in Ottertail county. Makes me think ice can not be that far away?

Dec 7th was my first day on the ice last year as well. I think the last 3 or 4 yrs it's been the first weekend in Dec. It won't be long now, but I still need to get out on the open water some more smirk

Hope the ice is good enough to cross Pine Island by the 12th. First trip then. Some years we drive 1/2 ton trucks, and some wheelers, and a few we just walked out from Wheelers point and had to fish the bay!

Wow - I had to move a picture out of the way to see that portion of the calendar - I am thinking the weekend of Nov 29th for 2 to 3" of fishable ice in a small bay on a smaller lake in South Central Minnesota

Last year I walked on some very thin ice near my house at the end of November and I live pretty far south. I will be optimistic and say November 27.
