      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 .

April fools

Any chance there will be open water to fish on April 1st or will we be up there as fools hanging out in the lodge with no place to fish? Don't have the flexibility to go up at the drop of a hat when conditions are right so we had to gamble on a date.

Hate to say it, and I hope I'm wrong, but I'd guess the latter frown

Bring your ice fishing gear, I would bet you could still get on the main lake and chase some monster pike.

Could always choose Rainy Lake or Lake of the Woods for ice fishing if there is no open water. There will still be plenty of ice on those lakes on April 1.

Everybody is getting anxious as usual me too. The river has a good flow rate right now at over 7 ft. and was on a good schedule to be open at birchdale by March 24th. Until we had this big cold snap. 10 day forcast for up there is back on a warm up. So river should be open by then. The other bigger problem is water temp. Walleyes will not want to enter river unless temp starts to rise by a few degrees. Right now temp at Manitou Rapids is 31.6 degrees and holding not on the rise like we need.

What made that 2008 year so amazing? April 5th and the ice had just gone by Birchdale. I don't remember water temps but it had to be cold!

If you look at the Spring River Conditions I post information and photos about the River... There is some shore ice in front of Birchdale but there were about 10 boats that were in the river fishing when I was there about 10AM. I am sure there will be more boats as the day goes on. They are pushing over some shore ice to get in. It is open 4.3 miles West of Birchdale Landing
