      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 .

You might note that most of black bay isn't very deep, ranging from maybe 8 or 9 feet at the mouth down near metza point to only about 4 or 5 feet further up. And it is all soft bottom so far as I can tell.

Delcecchi is right. The river channel out of Black Bay is 8-9 feet and the bay itself is consistently 4-6 feet deep throughout. There aren't many fish in there during the winter. I've never seen an ice fisherman out there, except for myself, and I haven't caught a thing.

The crappies and panfish are the last things to move out in the fall. All of the fish return in the spring and then begin to slowly migrate back out of the bay again as the open water season continues.

Probably the only thing to catch there during the winter is bullheads, but I haven't caught any of them either. Maybe somebody else will have some contradicting information about Black Bay.

Other parts of the lake have much better fishing and there are ice roads in those areas. However, I would not drive from Black Bay to anywhere. There is moving current coming from Black Lake, into Black Bay, and out to the rest of Vermilion and I've never seen a vehicle (besides 4-wheelers and snowmobiles) drive from Black Bay through the channel.
