      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 .

Thinking about heading to Washington on friday. Just wondering how the ice is now and if you think we will be able to get off the north landing? I checked the ice conditions forum and it didn't say much about Washington. If this snow blew off the ice I would think by Friday there should be 4-6 inches of ice.thanks for the replies.

This week's forecast looks promising. Continue checking the ice reports at the top of the page or I also recommend having a look at the situation for yourself. Ultimately, you're not going to go out unless your comfortable with the conditions.

Mud Bay south of Westwood is getting around 5" or so. The rest was about 3". There were about 6-8 people out Sunday fishing straight out from Westwood. Mud Bay has been frozen up for about a week and a half from Westwood straight out to the grassy point directly east accross the bay so it is a bit thicker. There has been a pretty good crappie bite early on so far. Not setting any records but they are there.

Any secrets BIG DS, was out there today from 2-4 and didn't even mark a fish. Just drilled a bunch of holes all in the 6-11' range.

Haven't been there yet, so take this for what it's woth; typically you need to be right on the cover or parallel to a transition this time of year in 3 - 6' of water for that crappie bite to happen.

Nope, no secrets. I guess its more of a time thing. The guys that have been catching them do have some time invested. In that area of the lake it is more a matter of letting the fish come to you than you finding the school and whacking some slabs. Reel Weeds do wonders over there. I used 'em last year and they definetly helped.
