      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 went out tonight, Ice was fine except for right along the shorelines. Saw a guy driving out today too. Oh and the fishing was slow, but I think we got out kinda late.

I've been out twice since I posted the question- the shore on South Long in Brainerd is soft but I've driven the wheeler out with no problems.

The spot I'm fishing still has 17 inches of solid ice so I'm thinking it will be at least a week before I hang it up...

DO NOT TRY THIS WITHOUT FLOTATION and SELF RESCUE capability.

I was on the north end of White Bear on April 1.

About half way between Ramsey Co Beach and Ordway's Bar.

The bigger sunnies are showing up and on an aggressive bite.

kingfish,

are the shorelines still holding I have been thinking about heading out there. It has been a very slow year out there. Darn Near Retarded may have taken too many in the past and with the last few summers, I think it has taken a toll on them
