      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 .

Marion had ice last Friday but also had some water here and there. That was before the wind and the 45+ degree temps, so you can figure it out from there. frown.gif

Without even looking, I can almost guarentee that MB is still open. Usually the last one to go. It was too dark last night to notice Stella last night, but I assume the middle is wide open over the 70 foot hole.

Checked out Marion, Allie and Preston late this afternoon. Found pockets of open water on each lake. The few spots I checked near the shorelines seemed to have a very solid 1-2 inches. They are talking extremely windy tomorrow which is not good at all. If you find a lake that is completley iced over as of today you will be on the ice this weekend(let me know laugh.gif) I cant wait too much longer!

Mid teens and somewhat calm last night. Sounds like real windy starting around dinner time today? Hopefully everything is locked tight! I am planning on going this weekend...somewhere?

It was blowing pretty good last night up until midnight and it's going to blow even worse today. Might be tight to get out there this weekend yet.

I don't think that any lakes around here are completely covered with 3-4" (besides maybe Addie) there are spots on lakes that have that 3-4 but this wind is really causing havoc. Now east wind for tomorrow after the Northwesterly for the past few days.....this just isn't going the way I would like to see it wink.gif

GOVERNOR, What are you doing out on lake Addie? I knew you had a secret spot you must be fishing behind the island so I can't see your house.

I dont really know where people would be fishing. Just got back from a cruise and found open water on Preston, Allie, Willie, Greenleaf, Belle, and Marion. Maybe further north people are fishing?. Me and a buddy are planning on going to a lake in the Willmar area tomorrow......maybe

I am looking at a lake in willmar right now and there are the same crappy spots around here as well. I don't know what the deal is this year if the water is circulating enough under the ice from the wind conditions and that is what is making these "streams" between the ice chuncks.......I know we don't need 6-12" of snow to compound the problem.

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!
    • Daniel Anderson
      Nice! That looks like a good time.
    • Daniel Anderson
      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far    
    • jj56342
       Anyone have any good news or been up there lately waz up  over the Fourth of July did OK nothing to brag about a few walleyes  or any other lakes around the area not looking for hotspots or nothing trying to catch a few panties
    • jj56342
      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September
    • proguide
      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.

      get a guide for a day
