      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 would guess then that the munger trail and north shore trail are just as bad huh? I'm coming home with some college buddies on the 20th to do some riding, but it's not looking promising! I thought we lived in Minnesnowta??

Most of the trails I've been on recently were running low on snow prior to the rain/warm up. I'm thinking without a significant snowfall, you'll be riding on dirt in the corners and where there is snow cover, it will be icy. I'm holding off until we get our Feb/March dump...

I think we will be riding again wink

Best way to put it is just think if the temps had been below 30 the last couple days. How much snow would we of had then confusedgrin

I am about to cry! I had to cancle my 5 day trip to the UP of Michigan. The resort I was going to stay at e-mailed and told me to cancle. I was out there 4 weeks ago and stepped off the trail into chest deep snow. I'm 6'4" so that is a pile of snow to loose in the last week.

This sucks.

At least the resort I was going to stay at is letting me rebook at a later date or get my deposit back.

If the UP is hurting for snow I'm sure Northern Minnesota is shot too.

Trails around Kabetogama, Ash River and I. Falls held up pretty well during the warm spell and it's snowing now. At least a new 1/2" out there.

This was sent out by the Park Service on 2/10/09...

This past weekend provided vastly improved trail conditions with the warmer

temperatures settling and packing snow on the park trails. Slush conditions

have been minimized with the warmer temperatures, overland trail portages

were groomed and snowmobile use was occurring on all staked trails within

the park. A few large groups were observed enjoying the weather with

Crappie fishing and a BBQ lunch on the ice.

The arrival of freezing rain today should further pack snow down on the

trails and new snowfall expected the remainder of the week should provide

good riding conditions for the upcoming Presidents Day weekend. Plans are

in place for park staff to groom ski trails and overland snowmobile

portages before the weekend arrives.

North end of the Arrowhead (Orr to I. Falls) is in pretty good shape as it didn't get as much rain as to the south.

About an inch of snow has fallen today and it's snowing again now - more expected from Orr north. 3-5" possible. Groomers will be out on Kab and Ash River area trails in the evenings.

Check out the ash river - kab snowdrifters site for area condtions updated yesterday.

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
