      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 .

I awoke to 10 degrees this morning and a frozen lake.

Long Lake in Twig has a sheet of ice encompassing the whole lake. Grand Lake should be froze over also with Fish & Rice lake not far behind.

It won't be long now.

With the ice report a reminder to tell kids to stay off any ice. That includes that pond in the back yard.

We had 7 degrees when I got up to put the turkey in this morning. Birch Lake near Babbitt is iced about half way across. Until I left for college (early 70's) one of our Thanksgiving traditions was to skate all around the shoreline of the lake I grew up on. smile.gifsmile.gif

Ya just a few years ago, maybe 3 or 4 , we were on Fish 1 year and another little lake the following year. 3-4" of ice. I bet we could be on ice in some bays but I will wait to check until Monday.

Maybe some shallow tip ups for eyes and pike.

Frank do ya think Lake 0 will be frozen enough for some tip up action by Monday?

I hope we get cold nights for a while. Need good ice for Fish Lake on the 8th.

Pike Lake is one of the last to freeze around here and was still open today. Steve don't know about that lake, might be iffy. Probably a better chance to get on Grand. I'll be out testing it in a few days.

Rice was iced in solid yesterday morning. Didnt check thickness, but it looked like more than just skim ice...

A lot of lakes had shore ice is hanging around before they froze over completely. Northlanders report on Fish lake is typical for the bigger lakes. These lakes don't freeze over all at once so Ice thickness will vary once they do. Could have 4" in one place and 1" in another. After checking the forecast, temps now - mid week won't be good for making ice but later on looks promising. Dec. 8th First Ice Event should be good for foot travel. We'll see.

One more warm day tomorrow and then the temperatures drop off. As long as the wind stays down we may be ok.

One to three inches on small lakes like One Pine and Robinson up here, with reports that Vermilion is now iced all the way over. Shagawa is iced over everywhere I can see the lake from my upstairs windows.

After today, the bottom is dropping out of our temps. We've got one more day in the 20s, then lows will hover around zero with highs in the teens all week. It'll be full speed ahead walking out by week's end. With any luck at all I'll be out there trying it by Thursday.

Pike is partially covered as of this afternoon. Looks like the next week or so should be good for making ice!
