      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 .

trout opener (bwca) ice conditions

Recommended Posts

Is there enough ice on the stream trout lakes to walk on with some confidence for this weekend. I am planning on going up near Ely with my brother to fish for some Brookies inside the BWCA. Sounds like snowshoes will be a must. Just wondering if ice conditions are worse yet on these lakes since they are small and so deep. the snow usually doesn't blow off of them and they stay well insulated. Please tell me there is enough ice for walking.

I'd have to say that if your not traveling across larger/deeper lakes then the small trout lakes should have a enough ice but plan on deep snow and very slushy conditions.

One other note. When you get this much snow on the ice, any moving water whether it be a spring, inlet, outlet, or choke points between the above, you'll have thinning ice and even open holes bridged with snow. Snowshoes would be a good idea but not so good on slushy lakes or when theres a threat of falling in the water. You might use one ski pole to test the ice as you go walk out.

If you are going across Moose & Newfound be extra careful as you get close to the narrows. It gets pretty sketchy there.

Good luck!
