      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 .

Little Late now, but for you and others, I was in 27 fow adjacent to deeper water and was happy with the results. Nothing world class but worth the trip out.

Best time of day was 2-5pm, but I had to be back at the cabin by 6:30 so didn't fish much in the dark

...My sucess...almost drilled one hole and my auger throttle stuck, my hand then slipped, and off to the races... I watched my auger spin, at top speed, for about a minute and then fall apart... I then proceeded to load up the truck and leave... a day that will never be forgot but wished it could.... lol

drifter, we've all been there, if you haven't you aren't outdoors enough. Two years ago, my hose for my cooker heater was apparantly too close to the heater, I was tending a tip up and when I turned around I noticed an orange glow in my portable, I put the fire out and continued on with fishing. I was then in the portable and the rubber that had melted to the heater eventually started on fire again with me in the house, I couldn't get the zipper of the house open in my panic to get out...I dumped the minnow bucket water on the heater and then packed up and left, happy to be alive.

It's gettin tuff to get through the ericson landing as there is a ice ridge thats slowly closing off the landing. I'll likely use the marina access from here on out.

Now that's funny... at least you got a couple holes...

Reminds me of a an incident a couple years ago..

We were up by Ely Laker fishing and we were on a ledge rock drop off and my buddy figured he was going to get a little closer to the drop off... you know what's next... He got a little to close and my nice new blades were used in an attempt to drill through a rock... needless to say the holes we had drilled were the only ones we were going to have all day... NOTE: make sure to bring the extra blades with next time....

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8
