      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Sioux Narrows Area Question.

Recommended Posts

Well gentlemen, ice fishing season is finally upon us. I had a quick question reguarding the Sioux Narrows area for winter time crappie fishing.

I am looking to get away from the pressure that Sabaskong Bay recieves and I enjoy the "search" more than I do the catching of winter crappies. I know there are crappies up in the Sioux Narrows area and was just basically wondering if there are any areas that I would need to stay away from. Obviously current looks to be an issue up in that area. Is there normally any traffic on the ice that would designate a relatively safe navigation route.

Again, not looking for any spots from anyone, but would like to know what I can expect of the ice conditions.

Thanks Ladies/Gents! Hope to see you on the hard water soon!!!!

Tearin' Lips,

I live in Kenora (about 40 miles away) and fish that area alot in the winter. I am mostly after lake trout, however.

As far as traffic goes, most of it is on the big part of Whitefish Bay. That is not where the crappies are. (that I know of)

The areas you are going to find the crappies are some back areas in Snake Bay and also Knickerbocker. I have fished for them in open water in those areas, but never ice.

You are best to get a map (I sell them, as do many other retailers in Kenora/SN) and have someone put some pencil marks on bad ice/crappie potential.

Good luck and feel free to hunt me down if you have any more questions.
