      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 .

On my never-ending quest to find green toothy snot rockets over 20 pounds...what does Montana have to offer? I think there are some good waters...just not sure where to start. Anyone have any advice?

I tried to find it on my own...but after sifting through MT's regulations I couldn't find it...how many lines can you fish with in Montana?

I notice that on specific waters children could only use 1 rod...but didn't see anything for adults.

Not sure where, but have heard about some big gators caught through the ice in some of the reservoirs. I did a quick websearch and found a pike club in billings.

Two that I found are Nelson and Fort Peck. Fort Peck is HUGE!!!

Talk about a sprawling body of water.

If you want BIG PIKE, BIG WALLEYES, and BIG LAKE TROUT; hit the Big Water. Fort Peck is THE place for big fish through the ice. I would suggest you look up "hellcreekmarina" their HSOforum name is exactly what you would expect.

Give them a call, they are great folk, willing to answer your questions and will be your best source for all the info you're gonna need.

Quetions like:

how many lines

what equipment (think tipups)

They also have about a dozen motel rooms. One of the few places that you can actually stay right on the lake shore.

Only other place I know of for winter lodging is LakeRidge Motel & Tackle, though I don't anything about them other than that they are on the lake and open year round.

Otherwise you're looking at staying in Jordan or Glasgow and driving 20 or 25 miles back and forth to the lake.

Desperado,

is it possible to drive a 1/2 ton truck on the ice generally by the end of December? I realize it depends on the weather...but I'm curious because if we are staying at [PoorWordUsage] Creek Marina...we are really isolated to that part of the lake...unless we could travel on the ice by truck. What is the bait of choice? Smelt, Ciscos, Suckers, Shad?

If we fished the north side of the lake it seems we might have a few more options in case the fish aren't cooperating. But I have to think if we were out of [PoorWordUsage] Creek Marina with 24 tip ups out (4 guys)...someone is going to catch some fish! lol
