      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 .

Okay so I put my 8 x 16 house out today.

I have 13 inches of ice under me off from Stevens point in 22 feet of water.

There are a ton of wheelhouses out.

NO 1/2 ton trucks as of yet.

I have seen jeeps, cars and small trucks on the ice.

Ice is firm, no slush that I saw.

Looks pretty good.

Will continue to get better.

In contrast I went to the launch by the public beach on the east end. Most houses were within 1/4 mile of shore. No trucks/cars out yet. The ice is still HIGHLY variable. I've drilled holes that varied from 12 inches to 5 inches. If you go out use a well travelled route. Playing Cap'n Kirk could get you in a "hole" lot of trouble.

I was over by Velvet Beach and there was 12-14 inches of good ice. The top inch or two was a little cloudy, but the stuff underneigh was good ice. Saw a lot of big trucks just north of velvet on a plowed road. I wouldn't drive on it yet with my truck, but I guess that is because my truck doesn't float very well.

Where do they access pelican in the velvet beach area? I know there is a public access on the northeast side of the lake though I've never used it. I've also not seen plowed areas in the 2 years I've tried pelican, must be in the wrong spot grin.gif

We are just north of velvet beach, by the grey house. It is a few more houses north of there. I don't think there is a public access there because it would be on my road, but there were a lot of cars and trucks coming through some guys yard. Don't know if he was charging money to go out there. The road was about 200 yards north of my fish house and was getting quite a bit of traffic. The road cut in a southwest direction toward area between Lincoln Point and Gooseberry.

Well I went out by breezy point.......I was set up in 27ft at the bottom of a rocky point....at dark the crappies started showing up and biting hard caught close to 20 keeping 8 of them from 9-11 inches and caught 2 walleyes, a 12 and a fat 18 1/4. The rest of the group didn't fair so well as they were 30 yards away and caught 3 small crappies and 1 small walleye and a whitefish between 3 of them. Walked out and found one slushy spot about a hundred yards long....not fun to walk through.
