      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 .

Guess who walk on the ice today?

Good for you. Make sure you where some ice pics and a life jacket. At least that's what I would do this early. No fish is worth your life so have fun and be careful. Let us know how you do.

Give us the GPS coordinates of where you're going so we know where to find the spot where you fall through. Just kidding, I'm jealous.

went to my local bait shop today and they said a few guys were going ice fishing today over here. Some back bays of a big resevoir are frozen enough to walk on. NUTS in my opinion. maybe next weekend i will go

I am not ready to put the boat away yet, but it looks like I better get the ice fishing stuff ready. It may be more useful than the boat in another week.

We got plenty of ice on a few lakes/sloughs SW of Fargo. I'll be hitting the ice early tommorow morning. Found there to be 4-5 inches (judging by the crack). Hopefully will set up some tipups for pike, and slay some slab bluegills.

Well, I was the first onto a little slough in south central MN. Marked a few fish, but didn't get any takers. Sure was good to be using the flasher, auger, stubby rods, and the whole 9 yards! Next time the fish will bite and I'll have the whole system down.

Easily 3 inches, probably even more than that in spots and they'll be more by tomorrow.
