      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 .

Are you kidding me! I had the Ice Cube set up in the house, but somebody made me take it down... I was perfectly happy sitting in there tying up jigs and spooling up reels. Laying out my gear...

OK let's look at this way. We are looking forward to driving out on the ice in -25 degrees weather, drilling a couple holes in the ice, putting up a flimsy shelter, firing up an open flame heater, dropping a line down a hole and figuring we have it made. Of course we are crazy crazy

But is sure as h--- beats sitting there watching cartoonies all winter grin

my OL found me sitting in my freshly built Portable shanty last season. I hear a knock on the door and a "are you in there?"

she just couldnt understand what I was doing till I convinced her to come in and have a seat. warm, low light and quiet.

she understood after that.

I cleaned out the wife’s workout room to set up my 6800. How many times do you wait till you get out on the first ice, set up your house, and find something torn or needs to be fixed? You know that it's now too cold to fix it and if you had time to fix it at home you could be out fishing and just deal with it.

So that’s why I have it set up so I can have a hassle free season and find some cure to my addiction until my wife suggests some sort of rehab.
