      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 .

Nature Vision Weed’Ez

Finding a product that actually calls fish to your location is impossible. However, finding a product that will hold fish in your area is within reach. Nature Vision, the parent company of MarCum and Aqua-Vu has a product called Weed’Ez.

Putting cover in the lake and leaving it there(without a DNR permit)is illegal. Yet, putting something there to hold the fish, in which you remove and bring home with you is not. We all know fish relate to cover, it’s like a comfort barrier for them. Weed’Ez is just that, your own little weed edge.

Finding the proper location is still the first step in successful ice fishing. However, at times you can make your spot even better, adding Weed’Ez can turn a good spot into a great spot. Schools of roaming fish will now stop and use your artificial weed edge. Keeping the fish beneath you longer, allowing you to catch more fish.

When I first started using Weed’Ez and products like it, I didn’t have much faith in it. I thought it was a gimmick. Yet, after using them a few times, I have learned that they are an fun and important item to have. I found that it did keep fish in my area longer, especially on days when fish seemed to be on the move. It even fun to play with different hole patterns/weed’ez placement. I have used a line, and T shape, V shapes, and squares, even large U shapes, all with good success.

Weed’Ez are also affordable. At $20 per 4 pack, its something you can try and form your own opinion.
