      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 .

What are the travel conditions like on LOW?

Pete,<BR>NO WAY.<BR>I just spoke to a resort up there and they said some spots have a foot of water on the ice. After last night, there's going to be an inch of ice, then a foot of water. Even snomo'ing is going to suck.<BR>Also, the snow is still deep and under the snow there is slush, and now probably crusty snow and then slush.<BR>Bring your sled, Paul and I will lead you to walleye nirvana grin.gif

I'm bringing the 4 wheeler... At least if you get stuck on that it is easy to get out... It could be tough to get around it sounds like though..

We can travel on the main roads and pull our houses out away from the roads still right?<BR>If not I will stay home. I have no snowmobile or even a wheeler so if I cant drive main roads and find a pullover spot Im sunk!

From what I read here, a wheeler is not going to work off the plowed roads. There's too much snow.

<B>Here's the accurate scoop out of Adrian's as of RIGHT NOW.</B><P>I called up to LOW. 4WD are going out of Adrians to fish on LOW. They are plowed out to the gap and there is a bite going on there.<P>There is water and slush when you get off the plowed roads. There is also a crust over that today. <P>You would be advised to not count on using a 4WD pick-up or ATV off the plowed roads. <P>It appears snowmobiles are making it, but be advised to use a buddy system in case you do get bogged down with one.<P><B>The roads are plowed out to where the fish are and accessible by 4WD.</B><P>If you want to travel off road, you would be advised to bring a snowmobile or be prepared to use leg power.

I just got off the phone with another resort owner up there, and he told me that travel on the plowed roads should be fine for those who have trucks. Branching off the main plowed road are series of smaller plowed roads leading to rental houses and other roads plowed to permanent houses, and those roads are good spots to branch off the main road. Numerous resorts up there plow several roads off the main road, and parking the truck off of those is the way to go. Thats what I did a couple weeks ago and as of today its still do-able. A few spots that I plan on hitting are just off the main plowed road and is off of one of the smaller plowed roads leading to rental houses. I think we will be alright with 4-WD and we won't have to take snowmobiles to get on fish if you don't have one. <P>Just a little info I picked up today...<P>Good Fishin,<BR>Matt Johnson<P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://www.firstchoiceguide.com" TARGET=_blank>First Choice Guide Service</A><P> MJ5fishing@hotmail.com<BR><A HREF="http://iceleaders.com" TARGET=_blank>Iceleaders</A><BR><A HREF="http://catchn.com" TARGET=_blank>Catch-N Tackle and Bio Bait</A><BR><A HREF="http://marcumcustomerservice.com/" TARGET=_blank>MarCum</A><BR><A HREF="http://stonelegacy.com" TARGET=_blank>Stone Legacy</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.jrstackle.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>JR's Tackle</A>

Chad,<BR>I'll be leaving tomorrow morning around 10-11am and I should be up there around 5pm give or take a little. You are more then welcome to follow me out. I'll be driving a white S-10 ZR2.<P>Pete,<BR>Yep, I was pretty close to the road, not more than 30 yards away. Should have no problems getting to those spots again. We might have to move closer in though, the fish were on the move a couple weeks ago and I would bet we find them a little shallower this weekend.<P>Good Fishin,<BR>Matt Johnson<P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://www.firstchoiceguide.com" TARGET=_blank>First Choice Guide Service</A><P> MJ5fishing@hotmail.com<BR><A HREF="http://iceleaders.com" TARGET=_blank>Iceleaders</A><BR><A HREF="http://catchn.com" TARGET=_blank>Catch-N Tackle and Bio Bait</A><BR><A HREF="http://marcumcustomerservice.com/" TARGET=_blank>MarCum</A><BR><A HREF="http://stonelegacy.com" TARGET=_blank>Stone Legacy</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.jrstackle.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>JR's Tackle</A>

opsirc,<BR>I go out of Adrians road, its right next to Wigwam and thats the road they will have you take. Its just down the road from Wigwam, very close. You should be fine going out of there.<P>Zippel Bay I'm not quite sure, but I would assume the same conditions.<P>Good Fishin,<BR>Matt Johnson<P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://www.firstchoiceguide.com" TARGET=_blank>First Choice Guide Service</A><P> MJ5fishing@hotmail.com<BR><A HREF="http://iceleaders.com" TARGET=_blank>Iceleaders</A><BR><A HREF="http://catchn.com" TARGET=_blank>Catch-N Tackle and Bio Bait</A><BR><A HREF="http://marcumcustomerservice.com/" TARGET=_blank>MarCum</A><BR><A HREF="http://stonelegacy.com" TARGET=_blank>Stone Legacy</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.jrstackle.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>JR's Tackle</A>

Snowmobile is the way to go. I am not sure about the plowed roads because i don't use them. With the cold weather that we have had the lake was in excellent condition for snowmobile, 4 wheeler worked alright too, but when it warms back up I wouldn't reccomend. Still a good 8-10" of snow on top of the ice. We got a little fresh snow so there is good lubrication for a sled.

I was going to stay thru Monday but I couldnt get out at all. Adrians closed the road or at least told us not to go out. They werent going to plow until the wind died down. Understandable. Why plow to do it again in a hour? Plus you couldnt see anyway. The snow was all over your windshield as you drove. <BR>I left and came home. On the way home I saw 3 really bad accidents! 1 had 2 trucks, 3 sleds and 3 wheelers in the ditch. Passing on black ice. Nasty! Luckily nobody was hurt!Another was a flip over in the ditch and the Ambulance was there. Not good.<BR>The 3rd was a totall slide off the road deal. All ok.<BR>Then when I finally got back to Duluth a young girls car broke down and I towed her to a station. <BR>After a real long and stressfull drive from LOW Im on the computer? Priceless!

Hey Northlander Sorry it worked out that way for you! I was hoping to get some fishing in today as well untill we woke and looked outside! It was a slow ride home. It was good to see you and all the others up there, and meeting lots of new faces to the FM names.<P>------------------<BR>If I only had more time!<P>Brian Rogers
