      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 .

Main lake Water temp's as of today 7 AM 51.8 degrees...rain and wind have dropped it a tad in the last few days. Temps should bounce back with the warm temps tomorrow and Thursday. Weatherman says 70 degrees on Thursday...hope so, H20 temps in the mid to high 50's is great news...bad news for the Walleyes grin

Yup, it's cold. I filled up some leech water from the Pond today, and it was definitely not warm. No idea of actual temperature, but I wouldn't go swimming in it.

It might be cold, but definitely sounds warmer than last year! And looking at the forecast, should progress quickly.

If the wind is reported to be 9 mph, how fast will it be on the water?

if i recall the wind formula conversion from the weather report to actual lake wind speed is.......weather times three plus 15 mph equals actual,so take 9 mph * 3+15=..............42mph a.f.w.s....or actual felt wind speed grin sorry always seems to be more on the lake though,few years back we went to upper red and had a 27mph west wind with snow and 29 deg temp at 5 am i asked john petrosky how he thought the fishing would be that morning and he said fine if you have a coast gaurd cutter ship....

Okay, well based on my interpretation of that is it will be 42 mph on the wind-blown shore. So how about in the middle or on the on the deeper windblown break? Please be more specific.

Well lets see...I need my gonkulator for this. If the wind is 42 mph on the windblown shore then it will be about 68.4 mph on the first windblown break. (the wind picks up speed as it comes up the break...sort of like the venturi affect)The reduced surface area causes a decrease in pressure therfore an increase in velocity.

just kidding around i guess you would have read the wind speed wherever you go on the lake i dont think there is a formula.

For sure....just jerking your chain. If you have a semi-accurate wind forcast for the area like Isle for instance, that is probably what it will be on the lake. Of course when they say 15-25 mph, thats a minor irritation on land but that will get that lake rolling pretty good and it will feel like 50 mph especially downwind. From the forcast I am looking at, tomorrow shouldnt be too bad but it will be kicking pretty good on Sunday. Good Luck and wear a life jacket!
