      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 .

Just wondering how far north I have to go to find fishable ice on Oahe. Also never ice fished it so any general direction or things and depths to look for would also be helpful. Thanks.

My buddy just moved up to Mobridge and he has been slaughtering the eyes up there and they have 15" of ice. That's as close to Oahe as I can give you though, sorry.

Thanks for the info. I heard they have been doing very well up there. Hopefully I will be able to find some ice without going that far north. I am planning on bringing the long rod so if nothing else, I can fish by the dam.

Friend of mine just went north of HWY 44 but thats still on Francis Case. Said they had 5 feet or so of open water from the shore but if you can get on the ice, its 12" plus. They caught 2 nice limits of eyes in 52' of water. Yes, 52 FEET of water. They backed a trailer up in the water, put the ramps on the ice and got their wheelers on that way. Not a preferred method im sure but it worked.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me how the ice is around Akaska. I was hoping to take the boat out there in the next week or two. Thanks
