      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 am hoping to ice fish Bowstring the weekend of the 16th and 17th, but I could use a little advice. I used to go hit the String with my Grandpa for crappies a few times each winter, but it has probablly been 12 years since he and I have been able to fish together. He always picked the fishing spots, so I'm not real sure what to look for when selecting a location. Should I be looing for a specific depth range, type of structure, or anything like that. I don't need exact locations, but enough information so that I'm not wandering around with no idea of what I'm doing would be appreciated. I would also be interested in some evening eyes if there are a few to be had. I've never ice fished for walleyes on Bowstring before.

Thanks,

WINTERSE

The north end access off county road 35 is the most used. There are alot of different spots around the lake that are fished for crappie mostly the north,west and south sides.Most of the crappie fishing is in the 20 to 25ft which is where it drops in to the main basin of the lake. There are different humps and bump mostly in the north end that people fish. Not what I like to do, but you will see little fishing villages set up in different area mostly the north and west side that are fishing crappie/perch.

We have done well out in front of Snug Harbor Resort in 20-25 ft. We usually have to stay mobil and jump from hole to hole finding active fish. There are usually a ton of holes already drilled so you will see the areas that are fished. Don't be afraid to break away from the pack to find fish. First light and last light always seemed to be the best times. Good luck and report on how you do.
