      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 .

Rain causing problems for ice?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking of going out today. Will the rain make the ice unsafe?

I was headed to mokomis where I heard ice was 3-5 inches. Where I am headed, 5 inches.

I don't know, I see the rain melting off my driveway nicely. I think it's going to turn the top layer of ice into a bad layer. Just be careful and keep checking the thickness. Watch your driving coming back because it's going to be bad. When I was on the ice yesterday, it was cracking all over the place.

I'm thinking this rain could be a mixed blessing. my thoughts are that its melting the snow which is acting as an insulator and later this week the temp is supposed to dip again so we get more ice (at least thats how im thinking about it)...but right now im not gonna take my chances on the ice

happy holidays and good fishing

If you go out wear your cleats. Loos15 and I were sliding around everywhere last night. The surface of the ice had a layer of water on top in most areas. That covered with a bit of snow makes for a slick mess. Wear water proof cloths and ice cleats.

I haven't been by Nokomis today, but the snow was getting wet and heavy when I was there yesterday. If the rain melted the snow significantly, it could be a good thing, with the temps that are coming for the next couple days. I'll still be carrying my spud and spikes for a while, though.
