      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'm planning on coming up this Thursday, but heard that ice in Head O Lakes may not be strong enough for snowmobile travel. Are there snowmobiles going through Head O Lakes and the islands between Head O Lakes and Wakemup?

I do not get up into that area much so I can not say for sure what is going on there. But I would certainly say to be extremely cautious around the narrows between the islands going from Head o Lakes to Wakemup. In our area of the lake (central part) we are seeing an average of 12" but there are areas of 6"

Hopefully someone will chime in here with some more accurate information for that area.

SkunkedAgain,

I was out 12/14-17 back and forth on the ATV from Jacobson's point and Hibbing point. There was 6-8" of good ice all the way over. A couple slushy spots but even under the slush was 6" of good ice. Quite a few sleds heading to/from the Landing from Wakemup. Not sure how the narrows are though. You should see their tracks but stay fast! wink.gif

Thanks. It sounds a little sketchy up there. Any other updates?

On 12/23 was fishing out near Staley Island and found about 7-8" of good ice, but there was A LOT of slush. Even with all the new snow you can see the water/slush discoloring the fresh snow in areas. I must admit to feeling kind of uneasy out there.

My ice report for the west end:

Ice is pretty solid everywhere that I checked, but is covered by water, slush, and snow. Some areas were fine with 10 inches of ice, with an inch or two of slush, and then another inch or two of ice. I got stuck when something flew off my sled, and I slowed down to turn around. My sled went through the top layer of ice and I found myself standing in 6 inches of water (on top of solid ice).

In general you're okay on the lake but make sure you've got a well-maintained machine that won't need to stop anywhere.
