      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 .

The Lakes are open!!

Saw my first whitecaps of the year today! Heading north on I-94 just past Maple Grove exit (Rush Lake or Reed Lake is the name).
After that I went by a couple of my favorites to see if it was true and sure enough there were waves all over the place!
Thank you Lord!
Ole
Time to get going!

That lake you see from I-94 (as you pass or approach the Weaver Lake Road exit) is Rice Lake...it's about 5' deep...crappy (not crappie) fishing.
I drive big rigs and was driving a set of trailers to and from Watertown, SD today and saw that every single lake had opened up with whitecaps also...what a sight indeed!!

I heard a report that Tonka is still partially iced up but should be out very soon. Black Lake is open as well as some smaller bays. The Mpls. lakes in my area are all open. Vern

Drove by Tonka around noon today. Grays Bay has been open for a few days and the main lake is iced, but looking rotten. Ice-free tomorrow? Tuesday?

Bald Eagle and WBL both still covered in ice. Went out hoping they might be open but ended up in the Mississippi instead.

Crystal, Twin, and Ryan lakes in robbinsdale are ice-free. Gatlyn and freemont lakes in zimmerman also are iced out. My friend drove by Medicine today and said it should be iced out by wensday.

Gervais is still 75% ice covered. However, Spoon and Keller are completely open. Took the boat out today for the first run of the year and it appears many other people had the same idea (mostly water ski boats). It was great to be on open water again. Heading to the Rainy on Thursday.

Saw a boat full throttle on Eagle Lake today. Ice is gone. Getting the itch!

I had my boat out Friday and wet a line. Nothing beats the first time you crack the throttle and the boat comes up on plane. It was sweet!

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them. 
    • eyeguy 54
      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up. 
    • Wanderer
      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I've seen some guys out already by bayport while driving across 94 bridge yesterday afternoon.
    • iiccee63
      Buddy was out on Linwood reporting 5 to 6inches pretty much everywhere. Think was are good now finally.
    • monstermoose78
      To many fish I would have dropped my phone
    • leech~~

      I found a new unopened Minnesota V6.0 on Craigslist for 75$ and it was only 2 miles from my house saved me a trip to Cabela's.

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
