      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 .

Parley Report (2/16)

First time ever to lake. I wasn't expecting to see a wild and "house-less" shoreline. What was up with the wind? That was totally not in the forecast. I had a tem reading of 35 degrees, but the wind was BLISTERING! Felt like single digits. I marked zero fish in 17 ft, but in 14 ft my vex was lit up like a christmas tree from 5 ft below ice all the way to bottom. Just a couple nibbles though. Caught 1 perch for the whole day...probably the biggest metro perch I've ever caught (about 9 inches). I like the look of the lake though, I think I'll be visiting again in the spring with my boat.

JB, you're not alone, I had great but fishless day on another small lake yesterday. I was the only one out & when the wind came up it felt nasty!

Had the camera down from 2-5PM & never saw a predator fish. Even dropped down a waxie to try to get a perch or sunnie to bite - what's the world coming to when you can't even interest a perch in your lure? Tough fishing for me, too.

There ain't no fish left in Parley.

It all may have something to do with dissolved oxygen levels. According to what I've read, Parley has suffered winterkill in the past. I would imagine that this year, alot of fish in the shallower lakes are just plain shut down. I'm alittle bummed out, because most of the lakes I like to ice fish are shallow. I don't want to waste my time trying to get a fish to bite that is basically in a coma.

It's a few miles west of Victoria. This used to be a great place to fish, but I agree that the oxygen level is probably low. Combine that with the fact that it has been pounded by anglers over the past couple of years and this is what you get on a smaller metro lake.

So it's safe to say it's more of an early ice lake?
