      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 .

Wind is the forcast for Sunday with the bottom dropping out of the temps. NW winds 25-30 with higher gusts. High early in the low 30's falling to the teens to near single digits by dark. We may be in the canals Sunday just to be able to fish and somewhat get out of the wind. Unless PP pounds them in Smiths grin

found some fish in Smith's but nothing to fast or exciting patience was the key and if someone was moving around or drilling holes get ready you should be seeing fish soon.

Did anyone brave the weather yesterday? I was planning on heading down early but quickly changed my mind after stepping outside and finding everything iced over and 40 mph wind blowing.

I sent quite a ways out off Cottonwood on Saturday with my sled. I did not like the looks of the ice so I walked 3/4 of the way to Stoney punching holes all the way. It was 8-10 inches out there. I marked quite a few fish at 14 fow but I didn't conncect with any of them.

I followed the shore line out of Angler's. There was another guy down by the footbride a good ways out.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
