      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 just got back from walking the dog and from 21st ave to Duluth was open. Yesterday driving home from Two Harbors, the whold shore was open. I would assume it still is with this wind.....

I was just up yesterday and most of the shore is open but there's lots of sheet ice floating around and a lot of chunks close to shore that would be pretty bothersome. Some spots along the shore had a skim layer of ice extending from the shore itself too. The shore is sort of at that in between stage with enough open water to get a cast out here and there but enough ice floating around to get in your way and not enough to walk on. It's so cold right now I wouldn't bother casting anyway. Line and guides freeze too fast.

Anybody know if the Two Harbors landing is useable? I heard, as of a few days ago, it looked to be useable. Maybe after this cold spell it isn't anymore. I had delusions of trolling this weekend! Any info would be appreciated.

Too much ice floating back and forth to shore fish or troll. As of 2pm there is a bunch of ice hitting the shores of park and Wi. points. If we get a NE and some cold it could lock up. Warm this weekend though so my guess is it blows right back out in a few days.

Thats what a news paper article on a very small and specific spot will do. Must be a very slow outdoors season. crazy.gif

Funny thing is I would have NEVER thought to fish there. Who would fish in that small of area? Reminded me of open water fishing on Mille Lacs. Everyone stacked up on the flats. But the harbor is tiny!! I suppose come summer when I want to launch the boat it will be like Boy Scout landing \:\( Fighting dock fisherman. No problem with dock fishing But they sure make it tough to get in and out.

Ya they need to move the Boyscout fishing dock up the river farther so the boats can get out easier.

Fishing shouldnt be allowed inside the safe harbor in the summer in my opinion. No problems fishing outside the walls though.

Yeah, it's pointless to fish there. I'd never even consider fishing that spot. ;\) well...I might have stopped in there for a bit on tuesday and there's a small chance I'll be back friday and sunday. I'll post pics and give a report after it melts though like Sam Cook should've done. We need a huge harbor like Milwaukee has or atleast some sort of warm water discharge.

From what I saw today the ice blew back out and its broken up all over. Shore casting could be hard to do. Only thing to do is drive the shore and see what ya find out. Sometimes you can find a pocket to toss into for a while.

Or join the sure to be Zoo at Mc Quades.

I went to check out the French today. There was too much floating ice particles to cast, unless you cast nearly parallel to the shore. The large ice mass was pushed out a ways though. It was just a thick stream of slush by the shore.

It was open friday morning and my buddies that didn't want to fish McQuade landed one coho at Bluebird landing. The ice blew in by noonish and the whole shore looked covered. We're fishing inland today and hopefully the shore will be open on sunday. Anybody getting any hen loopers? Every one that my buddy and I have got this year has been a buck. We've caught enough to make that an interesting statistic. Just wondering if anyone else is seeing the same.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.
    • Wanderer
      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!
    • grundy
      don't  give them any ideas!
    • fisherjmb
       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.
    • Jim Almquist
      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?
    • leech~~
      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
