      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 did this the last two years on L.O.W. I now want to go farther, sled or truck in set up base, then go scout for whats hittin. I have a clam 6800 that I use as base camp as well as sleeping quarters. it would be cool to get a group together, a couple times each winter, to find remote winter only, ice fishing destinations nortwest ontario area, take all thats needed. each person bringing somthin different, stay the weekend. its not a easy venture, but you only live once. lakers, walleye, etc. so now witch lake, are you in thanks

Robert1965,

You need to do some research before you just head out and setup base camp somewhere. There are green zones where NR can't camp - even in the winter.

Do a search for the MNR in Ontario and maybe you can find some good info there.

Good Luck.

Robert,

What do you mean (access would not be an issue)? If you are a non residant of ontario, you can not camp in a Green Zone. It doesn't matter if you have a local native or not. They can camp in it, but again a NR can't.

Just check with the MNR, they can get you map with the green zones marked on it.

We fish alot of lakes off the cedar narrows road. The road is about 50 minutes north of Fort Frances, going towards dryden off the 502. You should be able to find it on a map. We use the camp as home base and then go from there.

We park our vehicles at 18 on the cedar, then snowmobile in 6 miles to the camp. We hit the main lake, small surrounding lakes, if we really want to go north way up the road, we can go back to the trucks, load the machines - go up the road to where ever we want to try. When we are done, just load back up and head back to camp.

Its a great adventure everytime we go, you really never know where or what lake you are going to try. It's nice being off the beaten path.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
