      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 .

??Weekend FIshing??

Recommended Posts

Waylon&Willy

I have been planning to get out on the water this weekend, but do not want to freaze to death from falling through. I am aware that this latest snowfall really messed up some plans, but maybe the cold weather this week will allow for some decent ice still. Can someone tell me whether I should attempt to come up this weekend to get out on the ice, or is it just too dangerous?

I am looking for some ice reports for different sized bodies of water. I would not venture on to something like Woman yet, but how about Little Boy or Wabedo? If they are still too big, maybe Five Point, Hand, Webb???

Any accurate information would be Very Much Appreciated.

Thank you

I was up there last weekend hunting so I don't have much info for you, I did not see any body out on the lakes that I drove by but I was suprised to see Woman lake totally froze over, looks like there is a pressure ridge forming accross the lake in front of the main access on county road 5 just like last year. I am going up this weekend hunting again so I will pay more attention and talk to the locals and post next week.

you will be able to fish all the lakes you mentioned, but limited to where you can fish. 9 inches of snow on sat. and another five today has resulted in slush and water on lake. most lakes mentioned have 4 to 6 inches of good ice before snow.

I was in the area last weekend and ice fished 2 lakes. 4-5 inces of good ice in the smaller lakes and bays. The bigger parts of the lake are still unstable. Found 2.5-3 inches. With the snow on the ice water/slush was forming around the edges of the lakes.

My opinion is to stay off the big lakes and stick to the small bays/lakes for now. Ice picks a must!

seen one perm house on Woman lake but not much else, we had temps 20-30 below zero this past weekend so you would think that it should be making good ice, looks like pleasant lake has a pressure ridge forming accross the middle from what I could see from cty rd 45. any one got ice thickness reports?

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
