      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 .

I have been to Devils Lake many times and can tell you from experience that it is helpfull to have a guide the first time out. Our first time was a waste of a lot of gas in the auger and vehicles. That being said you will have a great time there and just like any other new lake talk with the bait shops and resorts and they should be able to get you on a few fish.

I just called them and they sell out of state license at their bait shop 3 day $17.50, 10 day $27.50,1 year April-March $37.50 He also stated that you can have 4 lines and the perch bite is alot like MN.early and late ice.but the pike and walleye are fairly steady through the season.Looking at their web site this looks like a great place.

That's my old backyard! I'll spend most of my ice time on the road this season just to fish there.

Get ahold of Dosch. He posts a fishing report on the North Dakota Forum and fishes with a guy to show them the intricacies of what is working. I went to high school with the guy -- good fisherman, if a little protective of his perch.

As for times, early and late of course, both for the day and the season, but outside of that, who cares as long as you're fishin'?
