      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 .

Upper Mississippi River Rodeo

Recommended Posts

Keith_MN

A couple months back I started a thread to give everyone a heads up on the planned rodeo get together in August. Unfortunately, since that time the river has turned into a trickle again, much like last year. So after consulting with KT and others who were trying to help organize the rodeo, we've decided its best to scale the rodeo way back. frown.gif

Unless you are already familiar with the river, any fishing will have to be done via wading, floating, or 'at your own risk' if fishing from a boat. The extremely low water levels just won't allow most boats to safely navigate the river. And the Monticello stretch of the river gets down right treacherous with the low water levels we are experiencing.

We will still have a campfire gathering at 7pm on Friday and Saturday evenings (Aug 10th and 11th) at the River Terrace Park in Monticello. If you come, bring your own favorite beverage and some snacks/chips to share (and a folding chair if you have one). KT's lot number is #26.

Anyone wanting a campsite can contact River Terrace at 763.295.2264 to reserve one.

Even though the water levels will not allow for a full fledged rodeo, hopefully folks will still join in to whatever extent possible : wading; floating; fishing a lake; and then meeting up for some BS around the campfire in the evenings. Hope to see some new faces there! smile.gifsmile.gif

Another quick note on the scaled back rodeo. Rather than a Friday and Saturday evening/night campfire BS session, we will only be getting together on Saturday evening (Aug 11th) at 7pm.

We'd appreciate a show of hands if you are plannning on attending so HawgTide knows how many BBQd ribs to prepare. So if you are planning on joining in on Saturday evening please respond with a "Yeah".

Bring a folding chair to sit on (unless you prefer to stand all evening), your beverage of choice, and some chips (or something else) to share with the group.

Thanks.

      Ice out as far as I could see today, little wind and a cool night tonight. Some wind forecast tomorrow night. It should be fine though. Here is the report   20171119_153600.mp4

      Any ice starting to form again?

      By the look of the forecast, single digit lows at night and no snow. Should it be safe to say that the first of December would be safe for snow machines? Itching to make the trip. Also any recommendations for lodging would be helpful

      Yesterday Finn and I went hunting for ducks and I should have had 4 mallards and pair of woodies.i hit one woodie and it hit the water as Finn went to get it jumped up and flew away. Next weekend I will try again.

      Second week of December is looking good for southern Minnesota, if the current long range forecasts are close to accurate. Maybe even the first week of the month with a little luck.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!
