      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 have heard 2 1/2 to 3" but with the snow thats on the 6-10" it's going to make a mess of any ice thats out there. Any lake for that matter so every body be careful. I know we all want to get out this weekend so just be SAFE.

Not me...Just my buddy.. More than likely won't be drunk, but there's a good chance he'll be hungover.

I live not even a half mile from Marion. In fact, I can see if from my house. I'd like to get out there and try it some time, as I just moved to Lakeville recently. I will check the lake tomorrow and report. Has anyone been out there in the last couple of days to check the ice? If so, please post. Have never fished this lake so it is hard to know where the safest place is for early ice. Anyone got any tips for safest early ice on this lake?

Went out sat am straight out from the boat launch ( that seems to be the safest first ice ) a good 4-5 inches 150 yds out. But just past that there was an open area about 6-7 ft wide weaving around and out to the middle.

Set some tip-ups but nothing. The wind drove us off about 1:00 tongue.gif

Has anyone been out on Marion this week? I just checked by my house tonight and didn't see anyone out there. Anyone have an ice update? Also, where do people park when ice fishing? I tried to find the boat landing but wasn't able to find it. Not sure if i was following the right signs or not. Anyone know what street is is off of? Can anyone else chime in about whether or not out from the boat landing is the best place to go on first ice?

Boat access is off of the freeway service rd. Take the same rd leading to Antlers park - go straight ahead to the boat ramp.

Yes for first ice straight from ramp is ussally the safest or on the bay by the channel ( right by the freeway).

Haven't seen anyone out there lately - the ice looks a bit questionable after the snow last weekend. I was out last sat. about 200" from the boat ramp and found a good 5" of ice. But things are looking wierd out there right now. crazy.gifconfused.gif

Be very careful if you head out.

Also, be careful going off the boat ramp. The deeper basin to the right (south) of the ramp tends to freeze up more slowly. Use even more caution if you head in that direction.

For those wondering, I stopped by the ramp today & there were at least seven groups of people/portables out on the ice, including one way back in the shallow bay & another out of the south basin. No idea of ice thickness (nobody was close enough for me to stroll out & ask) but there are folks out! Marion might be on my destination list for next weekend.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
