      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 .

Fishing last Night in the UP

Recommended Posts

My brother and I were out on a local lake last night when all of a sudden some jerk decides it's time to plow around his ice shack. 20-30 minutes before dark. Then he stops for awhile, then decides to start up again about 20 minutes after dark. I can understand wanting to have your shack plowed out but doing it right at primetime when others are fishing just seems rude.

A little while after he left i caught a 17" eye and a 12" crappie so wasn't totally unproductive night though.

We have had some of our best luck while running the wheeler around the house. After the fish stopped biting, we would run the wheeler again, and then they started biting again. I don't know if that had anything to do with it or not, but I don't get upset with someone making noise up on top of the ice. I have had my camera down the hole while all sorts of racket was being made on the ice, and didn't see much of a change in the behavior of the fish. That is just my opinion on the noise factor. smile

I understand your frustrations but maybe he works later or that was the only time he could fit the plowing into his schedule. I'm sure it was less out of spite and perhaps more out of necessity? smile
