      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 .

Lake Manitoba

Hello to all in Canada, I live on the Rainy River near International Falls MN. so every morning have my coffee and look across the river at your beautiful province. My Christmas gift from my dad this year is a fishing trip to Canada, we were planning on going to Crow for lakers, but I just read an article about Lake Manitoba perch. They painted a pretty good picture but said you need a snowmachine to get out, and we don't have one right now. would it still be worth it to go and fish close to the ice roads (if any) or should I just plan on going to Crow?

I haven't been to Lake Manitoba yet this year for perch but plan to soon. We had very little snow up to about a week ago. I heard that before the snow came you could easily drive out onto the lake. Since the snow I'm not sure if you need a snow machine or not. There are two places to go for perch on Lake Manitoba:

1. Twin Beaches, St. Laurent

2. Delta, north of Portage la Prairie

I'm not familiar with Twin Beaches. I know that at Delta you can park your vehicle on the dyke/floodway and walk a short distance out. Timing is the key. As the winter wears on the Perch seem to migrate further west.

Prior to coming up check out the Fishing Manitoba Bulletin Board on the Cat Eye Outfitter HSOforum. Lots of good info and plenty of guys willing to share reports.

Good luck.

you can drive a 4x4 truck anywhere you want to go right now...
walking is not the answer when trying to track down winter perch...
the starting point at st. laurent/twin beaches is 3/4 mile out to water 9-11' deep... there are no ice roads here just make your own trail
