      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 .

LOTW question

Recommended Posts

I booked a trip last year in the middle of February on LOTW in a sleeper and we did well but the action was hit or miss during the trip. People have told me that why did I go in February I needed to go in January because the fishing is alot better.

So here is my question, I booked my trip this year from Jan.15 thru the 18th instead of the middle of February. Should the ice action be typically better during this time or does it really not matter between the 2 months. I have a buddy who faithfully would go in the middle of February and had a lot of years where it was really slow.

Typically early ice and late ice are going to be the best times for ice fishing, but last year I went to LOTW around Jan 1, middle of Feb, and middle of March, and we had good action each time. Weather can be a determining factor on any weekend. Hopefully the resort you booked with will move their houses to keep them on top of the best bites. Hope you have a great trip!

In the two trips up there I've made, we had far better luck fishing out of the Angle/Islands region then we had on the south shore. We caught bigger fish and better numbers while based out the NWA permanent houses.

I wait until mid March, in mid Feb, you have to put on some Ice miles to really get into fish, at least that is what I have found. Up to Garden or Knight.
