      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 .

Just wondering if anyone else is getting excited about the open water fishing yet!! Looks like the cool spell may of slowed the timing down a bit, but I'm for one who can't wait to wet a line in the big pond.. Anyone want to give a forcast for the opener??

I've been waiting since October. Not having the boat in the water makes me uneasy. Ice fishing is fun, but I like a boat on the open water better. I forecast that I'll go out of Rocky Point and catch some eaters, and then eat them. It will be a long 19 day wait.

Been sitting in the boat making motor noises and all that has gotten me is spit all of the dash and windshield.

What opening day like on LOTW? Have never been up there for opener but after a great spring on the Rainy, I'm thinking I should head up there.

Thanks for the info.

Truly wish I had the same level of excitement I experienced as a younger man. Little like a birthday now...just another day.

Honestly, if you're not already fishing the open water season you should maybe look at other opportunities. Panfishing has been awesome this spring, and the season never closes. It's also a great time soaking a worm with the kids just to catch whatever bites; suckers, carp, sheepshead, whatever. They're all fun to catch just for the sheer fun of watching the bobber sink, rod tip bounce, or something tuggin' at the end of the line.

Forecast for the inland season opener? Too many boats, too much chaos, fish will be biting (somewhere), people will drink too much, loud cries, moans and shouts of joy will be heard across nearly every lake in Minnesota. Legions of people will be miserable wishing they'd stayed home and watched TV.

Typical MN opener. A celebration of fishing!

Hey Kaz. Based on Fiskys weather report, it should be a busy opener!! I opened up the cabin on Wednesday and that always gets me going. The water is seriously low--the first section of my dock is on dry land. However, the LWCB shows the lake in the "normal" range and rising. Hope it gets another foot or so by opening.

Drove my your place and everything looked normal. Let me know when you are heading up as I might be up there.

Take care.

Touch and go.

I don't go up on opener anymore but in the past, one opener it's warm, sunny and open. Others there is still ice on the lake.

I'm guessing the lake's open this year as all the lakes around here are open and opened early.

In my experience, the bay is a great opening weekend spot

I think the boat is ready as it will ever be. Got all my new gadgets mounted, now I can't wait for next weekend. Sounds like water is coming up. On the charts it looks like it is about where it was last sept/oct.
