      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 think the best chance is going to be Wabasha area and the Dike road, or KR7. Good Luck

Tyler-

Where is the Dike Road in Wabasha? Is it hard to find? I have mainly only fished in the immediate Rochester area but would like to venture over to the river to find some new spots. Seems like a daunting task though since there could be so many spots, don't really know where to start. Sounds like the backwaters could be a blast if you can find a decent spot. Thanks for your help with the Dike road area.

And also looking forward to getting to more UPLR events this year. Made it to one last year and had a lot of fun, interesting to see where people like to fish on the local ponds.

To get to the Dike road, head N out of Wabasha on Hwy 60/25. Just after you cross the river channel, you enter the area considered the dike road. There are fishing opportunities on both sides of the road for about the next mile (make sure you don't cross the WI side railroad tracks). During early ice, the Pontoon Slough area gets a lot of attention since it usually has the best ice. Pontoon is basically the 2nd parking area on the right after you cross the Miss River channel.

You'll want to be careful if you fish the left side (if you're heading towards WI) the ice over there can be kinda unpredictable.

All backwater channels are going to have a little bit of current, which will keep the ice a much thinner. I'll be staying off the channels for another weekend or so, but if you can find pot holes off the channels the ice should be better.

With a WI or MN license, you can fish between the railroad tracks. There are a few ponds on the WI side (that require a WI fishing license) on the road between Nelson and Alma. I'm pretty sure those get early ice, but I don't know for sure.

I made it out on a small water shed pond this am ice was between 5-6 inches. Was out for an hour and a half and caught some gills, nothing sizable. Nice to get out in November!!! Good luck and be safe if you are heading out this weekend.

I WENT THIS MORNING AND CHECKED WILLOW CREEK, ABOUT 3", MAYBE 3.5". SOME SPOTS LOOKED LIKE THEY FROZE IN THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS. THEN WENT OUT TO K7. DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER WALKING OUT. EAST SHORE WAS OPEN AND SOME SPOTS ON THE NORTH END WERE OPEN ALSO

I know of a couple of people that have gone there and fished already, just stay on the dike end. And make sure you always check it with a spud first. But I do know that atleast two people have been out there ice fising.

Yep. You'll be good out at KR-7. Spud every step, but there is some good ice. I was out there last night with the Yukon. I can only speak for the SE corner but that was almost all good. Stay away from the drain as usual and you'll find some good stuff.Have fun and they are liking the waxies and diamond jigs or genz bugs.

Keep an eye on the SE MN Area Ice thread stickied to the top of this forum for ice conditions. Please add additional posts if you have any ice updates.
