      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 see some ice forming on Spirit

Recommended Posts

I went out this morning to tie my bait bucket to the end of the dock and noticed ice forming on Anglers.

It is only out about a foot but it got me excited enough to start pulling the ice fishing gear out.

It won't be much longer if these cold nights stick around grin

Small area lakes as well as East O are locked up. Only 1 ramp left open on West O. Anglers had ice on it as of 10am this morn, not sure how much or how far out. A buddy working in the area called and gave the report. Guessing from the size of Lil Spirit, right now its froze would be my best educated guess.

Be careful...I know a lot of the ponds and small bays have been iced in for a week or so, but can't believe there's too much ice yet. Stay in shallow water.
