      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 .

As of Monday, Peltier, Clear, and Forest lakes were locked up. Surprisingly, they were still locked up yesterday. Today, Clear and Forest were wide open :mad:

Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

 There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.

There's hope, NOAA is predicting colder than normal temps for the Dec, Jan, Feb. three month forecast and slightly more snow than average. La Nina's affects are predicted to start kicking in soon and it usually means cooler than normal temps for the Midwest. We can only hope?

I'm hoping to catch some pickling and smoking northerns this coming weekend. Not sure where I'll go yet, somewhere local.

Everything looked capped today. Hoping for 4 inches Sunday if the wind holds off.:confused:

My go-to lake for pike was wide open yesterday, Mondays rain took care of what ice there was and the wind that followed kept it open. It may have locked up again last night but I'll hold off one more week before I venture out. With the snow forecast on Friday afternoon and the thin layer of new ice we have it might be a good idea to be a little cautious for now.

Drove past forest lake this morning, and there were still a couple small spots of open water. Stopped at the access, and ice was about an inch thick.

Still a couple open spots on forest, yet 3 shacks were out infront of access #2. Drove by the chisago chain. Lots of open water on comfort lake yet. Green looked locked up, couple people out there. Chisago had a couple open spots, while south lindstrom had lots of open water yet. Lots of people were fishing the channel.
