      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 .

Hopefully Checking River Coniditons Soon!

Recommended Posts

March 12th, 2014:

We have had a few nice days and tomorrow we are suppose to be in the 30s and the snow is melting around the buildings and we will be checking River Conditions in the near future as long as the weather stays nice and things keep melting. I just checked and last year we started checking it March 11, 2013 and found open water east of Birchdale a ways. Grant and I were talking about checking the River Conditions soon and we are just as excited as everyone else and enjoy documenting where it is everyday! Here's to hoping for warm weather and that the river starts opening up soon!

Came in from the Falls last weekend and there was not a stitch of open water from the Pelland Junction west to Baudette at that time. Normally there is some open water in the shallower sections of the river but not this year. Don't know if we will see boats near Baudette by April 15th.

Thanks for the information about the River Conditions from the other day. We are hoping that there will be some spring fishing or maybe everyone will have to come up for sturgeon season and try to catch one of those monsters!

I just wanted to let everyone know that we are going on Sunday to check the River Conditions and will post information and pictures of what we see! Yesterday I saw it was up to 56 degrees and now today it is in the 20s and windy. Hoping those low temperatures for night that are below zero change so spring can come faster for everyone!

Better news this weekend. My wife had some family business on the Range and went east yesterday(Friday) and said the river was open at least halfway from Indus eastward so it is starting to break up. With warmer temperatures expected this week, maybe we will see some open water by April 15th.

We had a report from a customer that the Rainy River is open what he thought as about 23 miles east of Birchdale Landing/Nelson Park. We are going tomorrow to find out for sure and take pictures. Keep an eye on the reports and I will probably start a new post that will be just River Conditions.

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!

      Lots of fresh ice out there. With the snow we have gotten the last few days you won’t be able to see the difference between the older and newer ice so don’t forget to check. There were open water spots on most lakes 2 days ago that are now covered. CHECK for your self.  Also lots of trash already on a lake I was on, slobs, throw it in your own car if you don’t mind looking at it.

      If he is going to fish them from a kayak I would suggest getting him a boga grip that way he can get it out of the water

      Thanks for arranging this MM.  Wish I could make it.  I'm sure it'll be a great time!

      I heard of a ranger/ice castle out from the Pelican access last weekend.  Any truth to that?  Some people have no fear.

      You will like the Blackhorn powder as long as you are used to using loose powder and not pellets. It burns much cleaner making reloads much easier. I clean my muzzleloader the same way as all my other guns now. Just remember that you don't have to use as many grains of powder with the 209. The max recommended is 120 grains. I shot 100 grains of pyrodex but dropped to 90 with the 209.
