      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 .

Clear Lake right next to I-35 in Forest Lake is frozen over today.

Keep bringing on the cold & we'll be out there soon...

It looks like it's about 60% froze over. I bet by mid week it's iced over.

Is there any public access to Clear other than the public landing? Is there access near the point after the lake is frozen?

Hookitguy, Ashbach Point is all private. There are three other access points to Clear Lake that are city-owned public property, but they are tough to find without knowing the area.

FYI- The area around Ashbach Point stayed ice-free for a long time last winter, so be cautious in this area during first ice.

Thanks for the info. Would a lake map have any of the other access points?

I drove by Clear around 11:30am today and it was at least 70% open water and quite wavey so it is going to be a while before we are out there fishing on the ICE....

Forest - Lake 1 was mostly frozen today at 1:30, which means that Clear Lake will freeze over as soon as the wind goes down.

Hookitguy, sorry but the lake maps do not show the other access points since they are not DNR launches.

It's been getting pretty cold at night, but the weekend is calling for snow. Hopefully we don't get too much.

Hi so haaad,

Could you possibly send me the other access points?

I'll in turn give you some local or Big Winnie hot areas in return.

Thanks very much...

It's been very quiet on both Clear and FL this week. I think a lot of people heard the report about the knucklehead snowbiler on Coon, and now with the snow we are getting people are respecting the thin ice a little bit more. I'll try to give a tape-measured report tomorrow.

I've been wanting to get out there too, but I just don't know yet. According to the posts above, I guess it kept freezing and opening back up. I don't think it was completely frozen over for more than a day or two before it snowed and that was only 4 days ago. With the snow cover I'm sure ice production has slowed down quite a bit.

I'd be interested in finding out when it's possible to make it out to the weedline.

Hi Tim,

Just got your email. I guess my email service thought our talk about fishing was worthy of the "junk" folder. Fish talk should never be considered to be "junk"! smile.gif

Hope you found the info useful. Let me know if you need help finding them, and I can help you out...

You are the 2nd one today (!) that had my e-mail in their junk folder - what the ... confused.gifmad.gif

I'm not too up on Flake & Clear, but I know the St. Croix real well if you need something for the spring & summer.

Try Big Winnie sometime - hit that spot & you could be rewarded...!

Good luck on Clear everyone!!
