      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 .

Hey, i will be heading up to the big pond this weekend 3/19-3/21 for the second time this year, was there the first time in December and did pretty good out of adrian's and zipple bay. I was wondering how well these two locations have been producing recently or if i should try a new resort to go out of, any info would be appreciated greatly. thanks

Chris: Check back a few threads and look for anything that Fisky, Widetrack and Matt Johnons may have posted. They had some good information on the bite. It sounded pretty iffy off the regular roads unless you are running sleds. there is still a fair amount of snow on the lake. I pulled up the long range forecast yesterday from that area, and snow is in the forecast at aboutn 30-40% each day. Hope you have a good trip. Good luck and hang on. Bill

Chris: Also take a look at the thread titled fishing reports. Whiskers Guide Service and several others have some good info there as well.<P>I'll be there about the same time and running out of Riverbend. They have bombers running over Pine and the houses should be in pretty good water right now. Bill

Chris, I was up this past weekend and fishing was really slow,not like December was. I fished on Arneson reef and out on Adrians road. I have a 4x4 Tahoe and every time we went off the main road we were stuck. People just gave up and fished right on Adrians road. I wouldnt go up again this year unless you have a sled or are getting a ride in a bomber. We caught 1 fish for every 10 we caught in Dec. Just my opinion, DrJ.

Just a quick report from Zipple. Fished Sat and Sunday and in a word SLOW but hey we still caught some fish. Mostly saugers and a few walleyes mixed in. Pink and glow angels eyes tipped with a whole shiner. Just a minnow head did not produce. Caught a few on a glow jig-a-bit under a bobber.<P>The folks at Zipple Bay Resort have done a very good job with the roads out from their resort. There was a sign that after the 15th they were not going to plow out o their last set of houses. Just going to plow to the houses in shallower water which is in my best estimation probably ok. Just call and check with the resorts or ask the experts here.<P>Jay R

Hey guys this time of year usually has reliable fishing in most of the usual late ice spots. Last weekends dismal reports from just about everyone and everywhere were due most likely to the temps plummeting 40+ degrees at the end of the week. At least that's what I'm blaming my lack of success on! A stable weather pattern for a day or 3 and they should start snappin' again.<P>You won't know if you don't go! I bet you'd hate to miss a decent bite and end up just reading about it here.<P>Fisky

Chris: As Fisky said the front last week didn't do the fishing a lot of good. I'm leaving St Cloud on Thursday morning, so I understand the 4 1/2 hour ride. i see that you live here also.<P>We had trouble witht he crappies down here last Saturday after a banner night on Thursday before the front came in. The weather has stabilized again and nothing drastic in the forecast for the next few days. I hope you get a chance to go and get into good fish. Good luck and hang on. Bill

We fished LOW on March 7 & 8 and catching was very slow to non-existent. The guides at the resort we stayed at said fishing had been poor for "2 and 1/2 weeks" and they were very tired of all the grumbling from the customers. We had a good time, as usual, and weren't among the grumblers.<BR>I've been up to the big lake 4 times this year (2 out of Baudette and 2 @ NW Angle). It's my opinion that the bite is not near what it was last year. I would just say "OK" overall.
