      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 .

4 Mile Bay late ice ?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to fish in 4 Mile Bay north of Wheelers point this time of year? We were fishing last year in a boat in the bay where the river starts to shallow up into that 15-20 ft. area . We were right next to the ice and caught all kinds of eyes. Can you ice fish that area now or is it just to dangerous?

You can fish it on the ice now. Walleyes will be staging up the river very soon. If you go on the other side of the Island you can keep 8 fish.

We fished 4 mile this weekend for pike and there is still 30+ inches of solid white ice. It is not going anywhere too fast with our temps.

correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't white ice = decaying ice? good hard ice should be clear/black shouldn't it?

We were out on Saturday as well and there were trucks in the bay and on the lake. The ice away from the heavy current areas is still perfect.

Always use caution around the gaps as that ice never really can be trusted. I'd imagine that ice is starting to thin.

White solid ice is ok, white ice that comes out in chunks, not ok. The thing with 4-mile bay is that it can go bad in one day if it is really warm. I have seen in past years that a bunch of vehicles go out in the morning and several fall through on the way back in that night. That was a 60 deg day and all the snow was gone. I don't see that happening by Sunday. Like Vman said, just be careful around the channels and gaps.
