      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 fished Briggs lake for the first time this year. I had a lot of fun, some success. I have been looking forward to ice fishing Briggs and Julia. I am looking for someone who has lake knowlege that could let me know of any areas to avoid. I assume the channels but I was wondering if there are any traditional weak ice areas such as springs. I am initially planning on accesses Briggs by the canoe access. Thanks in advance for any information.

Fish,

I used to live in the tiny town of Palmer and used to fish those alot. The only spot you have to stay off of is the channels of course. But at these low lake levels I would think the channels are very very shallow anyway. Everything else is good on Briggs and Julia. Stay off of Rush (which is connected) completely as that lake is full of springs. Also you may have better luck going to the St. Cloud report area as I see guys post about Briggs there.

Hey mnhuntress, jaydog etc,

I have been away from a computer this week and haven't had a chance to give a report. I was on briggs last saturday night. I went out of the canoe landing. There was only one other house out there within a half mile-not the chaos on julia. Nice night. The climb up the hill was a little rough but managable if you pack light. The fishing was ok. Caught several small perch and a bunch of 13-14 inch walleyes. Best depth seemed to be within 12-15 ft of water dead sticking. No crappies. Lots of water on lake. about 8 inches of ice. Be sure if you are out there you bring a good pair of boots. May head out again this weekend.

The Briggs report in the St. Cloud forum kind of got out of hand at one point. Now its back on track.

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
