      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 .

Metro Ice Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

iFishMN.us

So who's been catching fish? What kind of depths have been producing? Pictures and ice thickness reports would be great too! I would really like to hear a report on the ice thickness of Lake Sarah, Waconia, Little Long, or Whaletail if anyone has checked these lakes recently.

I tried to get out last weekend but the iffy ice scared me off before too long, only had 3" where I drilled so I didnt want to go out any further, and got skunked where I was. I will be out this week and weekend for sure with most of the lakes having over 4" of ice now.

Yes, I'd like to see some early season reports too!

I'm going to try to get out three times this week, so if nothing else I'll have some reports, good, bad, or otherwise.

Well this last weekend I made it out on 3 different lakes in the W/SW Metro. Lake X and Y are less than 100 acres and had about 3-4" of good ice with 4" of slushy mess on top. This was really bad news for pulling any sort of portable. Wayzata Bay Minnetonka was a different story. I think this froze over after the messy snowstorm, so there was 3 to 5" of decent ice with alittle snow on top. We fished about 150 yards offshore although someone had a portable clear out in the middle of the bay. Fishing was pretty slow. I think its generally game on for Metro ice, just watch your step!

Fished a lake within the 494/694 beltway last Friday after work. 4" of ice, fished in 11' of water. 15" walleye hit at 3:30 on a fattie/green glow jig, missed a couple of other bites, I'm guessing they were smaller 'eyes. 19" walleye hit at 5:00 on a fattie/red glow jig. Called it a night at 6:00. Some first ice success, I can't complain. cool.gif

Was on Peltier on Sat and Sunday mornings. One nice pike, and a few more small ones. Caught some sunnies and perch, they liked waxxies more than plastics or minnow heads. In 12-13 fow, and the ice was about 6 inches for sure. Some sleds were starting to zip around, so ice should be getting close to safe for sleds and atvs, but most stayed tight to shore last weekend.

Good luck.
