      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 .

It's done

I made my final trip this afternoon, I just needed to try out the new LX-5 one time before ice-out. Unfortunately no fish caught but the LX-5 sure works well!

A couple more days, we still have 12-10 inches of good clear ice on Lobster. The crappies are going shallow, so a couple of more days... then it's done.

Went to Lindsey today, still at least 2 foot of ice and still tight to all the shore lines. Sunnies bit all day, but no crappies. Wish they would not have messed with the limits tho...long way to drive for 5 sunnies. Oh well, beautiful day and good fishing with only a few to clean, hmmp not so bad after all...

Not quite!

I had put all my ice stuff away a couple weekends back, got the boat ready to go, etc. Then Friday I was looking at the forecast and just had to get out on the ice one more time. grin Dug all my stuff back out and headed north. Glad I did. Hit some really nice crappies both Friday and Saturday nights, and got about a half dozen big bonus bass both evenings too! Got one that probably went between 6.5 and 7lbs. A lot of fun on 2lb mono on the crappie rod....great way to end the ice season for me....

(all bass CPR'd along with most of the crappies, kept enough for a meal.....)

This scoop measures 19.5" from end to end, just for some scale...figure she went 21" or so.
