      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 .

Oh, how I love the cold!

Recommended Posts

I love hitting the hardwater when the temps are below zero.

The colder the better in my opinion.

I've never been much of a mover when on the ice, and there's nothing better than being cozy warm in the shelter (hopefully catching some dinner!) when it's blowin' below zero outside.

I'll be out on the lakes M-F this week doin' my best.

See ya out on the ice!

P.S. Don't forget the thermals...and yer hat....coveralls are suggested....gloves of course....the propane/heater combo is important....hand warmers for checking the tip-ups(I like to use my bare hands when possible)....ya might want to keep the beer in the shelter.....lip balm...a scarf is nice sometimes...........

Me and my friend just had this discussion the other day. As we recalled the better nights of last year as well as this year the bite was much greater than usual during those brutally cold snaps. I am starting to get more excited about cold fronts more than ever before. I can recall a number of years ago up north and it was -30 with 30 MPH winds= -50 degrees for 3 straight days. The fishing was phenomenal!!!

I just ran to the Cenex station for a can of Grizzly, I am not going anywhere tomorrow, unless conditions drastically improve. This is one of the nastiest storms I have ever seen- I couldn't see tailights 20 feet in front of me.
