      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 .

Thanks Robert. Planning to come up next week but want to keep a close eye on the lake conditions so we know what mode of transportation will be the best bet.

Hello

I don't think we will make the end of the month with safe ice. We have lost 8 to 12 inches in places. " from Saturday" There is no real water on the ice, it went through. But on a bright note - fishing was pretty good

Stay Safe

I really don't know - I am worried about Sunday and Tuesday . There was water again on top of the ice - maybe I jumped the gun - I just know what happen 3 or 4 years ago the ice honeycombed one really hot day and there was over two feet of ice - it was cold last night snow is hard on top

Have a good one - I will be out on the lake later today - will post tonight or tomorrow morning

Warm today - around 2 inches of water on ice - wheelers or sled with scratchers if it gets cold - little to no snow on ice

I talked to a guy that came from Morson yesterday - he thought ice was good for weekend - wheelers are the way to go - not much snow to keep slides cool

Be on the look out for air holes they are out there

I will be out again this weekend fishing/guiding

Have fun but always " Stay safe "

Thanks for all the updates Robert, they are very helpful. We have a big group coming up a week from today and hoping to be able to fish the 26th-29th. I know conditions are day to day right now, but could you give any insight as to whether or not you think we'll be able to get on the ice.

Thanks!

Fred_Bear -

Was on Whitefish today. You should be fine. It's still 3+ feet deep and everything is solid. It melted on the weekend and froze up again the last few days. ATVs with chains are best.

If it rains a lot - then I might be concerned. But it's still really good right now.

Hey All

Fred_Bear like Crappie-attack has said ice is pretty good, I did notice today the ice start to lift - couple inches higher then the water .

Wheelers - I am still running sleds but going from snow drift to drift to keep it cool. Lakers were hot yesterday - my group caught many fish around the 32 inch mark couple bigger - no 40's yet frown metal spoon was the ticket 35 -40 FOW

Cheers

Hey All

Got a little snow this afternoon, Temps are going to drop into the teens by morning . Ice travel is good, I've found places close to camp with less then 20 inches of ice. Not sure about the portage at Turtle Lake . I am done using that crossing.

Had a great weekend of Lakers , Many 30 inch fish

30 - 40 fow dead stick metal spoon. out performed everything.

I missed seeing Fishin Freaks and Mulcher - I looked for you guys.

Couple pics from the weekend and a quick laker Video from today.

Cheers

Robert
