      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 .

Lac Seul at flood stage; LOTW at 90 percentile

Recommended Posts

From Lake of the Woods Control Board today....

Lac Seul over 100 percentile, which means it is almost never this high. LOTW at 90 percent -- this high only 10 of 100 years...

"The Board advises that water levels and flows are very high in the English River system. Appropriate precautions should be taken.

Lac Seul outflow will be increased to 850 m³/s on Tuesday, July 22nd. This is the highest outflow since 1959. Further increases may be necessary.

The level of Lac Seul is in its flood reserve at 357.0 m (1171.3 ft). The level at Hudson (Lost Lake) is 357.3 m (1172.4 ft). The lake level rose 8 cm (3 in) over the past week and is expected to rise 4-6 cm (1.6-2.4 in) over the next week. Lac Seul outflow will be increased on Tuesday, July 22nd, nominally from 780 to 850 m³/s but subject to re-assessment. This outflow will exceed the maximum outflow during the fall flood of 1992 by about 50 m³/s and will be the highest since 1959, when outflow peaked at 920 m³/s. The diversion of water from Lake St. Joseph into Lac Seul is closed, except for minimum fishery flows.

With an increase to 850 m³/s, the level of Pakwash Lake and the English River below Ear Falls could rise 40-65 cm (16-26 in) above the level on July 21, while the level further down the English River at Grassy Narrows could rise a further 25-60 cm (10-24 in). The level of the lower Winnipeg River could eventually rise about 30-65 cm (12-26 in) below Whitedog and about 25-55 cm (10-22 in) at Nutimik Lake. These estimates are approximate and depend on a number of factors under these conditions.

The level of Lake of the Woods is 323.33 m (1060.8 ft), a 90th percentile level for this time of year. The lake level rose 1.7 cm (0.7 in) over the past week and is expected to change little over the next week. Lake of the Woods outflow is 1030 m³/s.

The level of the Winnipeg River from Kenora to Whitedog continues to be above normal but should be fairly stable over the next week.

If further information is required, please call toll-free to the Board's Secretariat at 1-800-661-5922.''

I would be very mindful of "deadheads" floating around. As long as the water clarity isn't bad, fishing should be fine. Fish shallower than you normally would? Fish, i.e. walleyes may be relating to weed cover that will now be abundant due to rising water. My opinion. I have had better luck fishing rising water than falling water.

    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
