      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 .

Looper Talk/ Open Water North Shore?

I have read all replies in both of these forums but still have a question regarding the rivers between 2harbors and duluth. I know last year when a made my trips down from ely about this time of year we had some ice break ups in the mouth of the rivers... But when i was down to the rivers last weekend there was no ice break up and it was still locked in pretty solid. Ill be down that way for about a week and a half starting today and was wondering what everyone thinks, will we be fishing the mouths and the first holes on most of the rivers within two weeks??? Just wanted to know about this because i would love to get back in the rivers as soon as possible. I know that the loopers are staging right now but is there any possibility of gettin to them in the next two weeks or do you guys think i should just say the heck with it and concentrate on panfish? Any help is appreciated.

I would say probably not and go get some panfish while they are HOT. Loopers will always be there. We just keep getting cold nights and it looks like more coming. I dont see the rivers opening in the next 2 weeks.

Ill be in search of slabs until the end of the month. Maybe longer this year. crazy.gif

Not a chance, really. Unless we get some really unusual weather.

So is the ice forming far out enough to ice fish or is the shore in some places open enough to cast from shore .I know it can be dicey along the shore so every one be careful and try not to fish alone.Thinking of going this weekend.I was down there monday and it was open enough to fish im curious if it has improved or not.

I stopped up there on Monday as well. I freezed my A off, cuase I didnt have any boots. I didn't think i was going to fish, but once I saw some open water I tried it out. No luck, my friend was on the scenic yesterday and said there is ice but like Josh said there are some open water spots. Sunday morning is looking promising. waxworms or salmon sacks??

When I was there it was not castable. ICE ICE ICE

I was thinking of trying some river fishing this spring. However, I do not want to be elbow to elbow with guys at any of the rivers. Are these rivers any good if you go way up stream? Do a lot of people go upstream?

Depends on the river and where the impassable barriers are. Some rivers don't see near the crowds especially if you head up the shore abit.

Did the nice weather today change the condition of the ice along the shore or are we going to have to wait awhile for that open water?

Didn't go by the French on my way up, I was running a little late. I'll swing by and check it on my way home though. My office is at the Grand Superior Lodge, about 10 miles north of Two Harbors

The north shore is fishable, but there is a lot of ice floating around that can get quite frustrating. That was yesterday afternoon's conditions anyways, the NW wind we've got going now could have cleared some of the ice out.
