      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 .

How much Ice!!!

Just wondering how much ice is down there now. They should be closing the rest of the gates on the dam really soon. The lake is back to the midpoint of their rule curve. So if there is ice it should get better soon, as long as we dont get too much snow on it!!!!

Don't know how thick it is but I can still see 10 good sized holes of open water from here. No real pattern to where they are. I think they are still the holes that were open when the sheet ice stopped moving a week ago.

Did see one guy trying to clean up the gene pool today. He came down the other side of the river, very close to open water, and went up the bank to a municipal road after getting stuck in the reeds.

I was still thinking how goofy he was when he came back a few minutes later and headed back up stream.

Guess somebody has to be first.

Wow I thought it would be all froze over by now. Well I guess I can wait a little while longer, But I am starting to get the itch. This snow isnt going to help us any though, big change from last year where we hardly got any snow to think of all winter. Well thanks for the info. Hopefully be down that way soon.

Thanks,

We have 1 spot within sight that is still steaming. The last few nights have really shut down the open holes. That doesn't mean the river is safe for travel but the open holes are finally closing up.

One guy has been sleding up & down the other side and one other has been back & forth on our side a few times. Not sure when I will feel comfortable running the river. Maybe next week if temps hold?

Thanks for the info! Is anybody fishing anywhere on the river yet? Clementson or Birchdale? Maybe I will just have to drive all the way over to The Big Lake for my first trip. On that forum it looks like they are doing pretty good over there.

Thanks,

Ok, I know its early but just wondering how thick the ice is on the rainy? How does it compare to the last couple year? If one had to guess about ice out, would you say early or later? I know weather determines everything but I'm starting to get the itch for open water. It wont be long now!!!
