      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

2-11-2015 LOTW,Whitefishbay,Crowlake fishing report

Recommended Posts

We experienced 4-5 inches of snow last night 2-10-2015. There is about 12-13 inches total snow on LOTW, Whitefishbay and Crow Lake. There will be more snow in your deep bays with some slush, so always be aware of where you stop your sled. There is about 20-24 inches of ice on the lakes, with the additional snow I would suggest using an extention on Whitefish Bay.There will be more snow in different areas because of drifting.

Fishing hasn't been as successful as early January. One group did well off of steep rock in 70 feet depths. Others found fish in the mud flats in 20 feet. We are still using the same old lures as the past few years. 4inch white and glow tubes, the Sebile vibrato greenie is still doing well. If you want to try something new, I would look for anything that vibrates in pink glow for trout fishing.

Crappie fishing has been really good this year, in town off of Gordies and at the private landing. If I find out any more details on where the trout are I will share that information. Caviar has been decent but smaller fish, Rowan and Whitefish have all been difficult to fish the past few weeks with fish at all different depths. I guess they call this fishing, I would be prepared to try anything and everything.

I will do my best to help you out,the more successful you are makes us look good, so I am not holding back any information. Good Luck and I will see you on the hard water.

Crow Lake and LOTW still have good ice and decent amounts of snow, some bare areas but there is enough to still use sleds if you make an effort to hit the snow pockets. Steven's Bay and Sabaskong has good snow cover but ATV's are working well also. You can still access portage lake with either. Get ahold of Paul at Muskie Bay!

Ice condiitions are great, you can get just about anywhere on 4-wheelers. We are expecting 4-5 inches of snow tomorrow night March 25, which will make it perfect for getting to back lakes and for snowmobiles. I have to say trout fishing has been tough but it has to turn on sometime.

Did well on LOTW catiching crappie, perch and walleye this past weekend. We have opening this up coming weekend March 26, so give us a call at 1-877-228-2076.
