      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 .

starting to read articles in the papers about when the leaves start falling and winter setting in that more & more people start to get depressed. WHAT? you have the fall hunting season, then its hardwater time. 4 1/2 months of ice fishing, no bugs. who has the time to get down in the dumps? confusedsmirksmilegrin

The only thing I get depressed about is that there's too much to do and not enough time. Height of the rut right now and it's a beautiful day to be out on the water.

For years I've told my hubby that he seems depressed after deer season is over. I think its because he spends at least 6 wks getting ready for it and dreaming about it and when its over and you have to pack the "stuff" away--it's DEPRESSING!!!

thats why you need a project. such as modding your ice house. it keeps ice fishing on your brain but not thinking of the actual ice fishing.. its the only thing keeping me occupied untill the water freezes over. what do you all do to keep your mind off of being on the ice.

Well to me guys, it doesnt matter what season it is for me.

I love ice fishing more than summer fishing but I will take eather.

The spring brings awesome fishing and it always feels good to bring the boat out, then we get summer and its hot and the bass are going nuts and fishing is good, then comes fall you get good hunting and the fall bite for muskies and pike can be awesome, then winter the best fishing in my opinion anywas

I understand how people feel if they aren't into ice fishing or any other type of winter sports. Before I got into ice fishing years ago I use to hate when winter time got here because open water fishing was done and would have to wait till the end of winter to go again. This was depressing for me because it seemed like winter took forever to end, now that I do ice fish winter goes by too quick.

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
