      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 .

Weather Forecast for the weekend on LOTW

Recommended Posts

HawkEYE1

I see on weather.com it is supposed to get cold 18 deg. on Sunday, however the resort owner where we are staying at is talking 40's 50's. Do we have a meteorologist in the group that has a clue how the weather is going to be this weekend. Good for fishing? Thanks in advance

They keep changing the forcasts.. Sunday was supposed to be nice, now I see it's the low or mid 20's forcast with monday near 40 again. The national weather service seems to be more accurate to me. crh.noaa.gov

HawkEYE,<P>I'm no meteorologist by any means but I'm a fisherman who picks the wrong weekends to go fishing. Last 2 weekends I was up at LOW and ran into the nastiest weather I've seen this winter. Seems like when I don't go fishing, the weather is terrific. Good for you guys I'm not heading out fishing this weekend, so I'm guessing the weather should be good.

Sound like it's going to be real windy with temps droping throughout the weekend.

We left this morning at 730am and it was 15 degrees, windchill-0- and the winds were between 25-35MPH. Local weather on the old TV said mid 20's for today and tomorrow. It was a definite change from Friday when it was in the mid 40's all day. HOpe it holds together up there for another coupld of weeks, once it goes it will really be sloppy with all the snow that is still on the ice. Bill

BobD. Yes the plans are still to leave around 530am on Thursday. Its going to get sloppy but I think we'll still be ok through the weekend. The snow pack up there is holding the temps down as compared to here in Central Minnesota. Our local 5 day forecast is predicting 55 degrees late in the week. I pulled Grand Forks weather a little while ago and the highs up there are predicted in the middle to upper 30's so I think we're good to go. If you're headed up we will be at Riverbend again in cabin #6, or at the lodge for dinner each night around 700pm-730pm. Let me know if you're coming and where you will stay. We'll try to compare some notes. Bill

BobD: PS to my last post. We will be leaving on Saturday around 100pm, so maybe we won't be able to hook up if you're not coming up until Saturday. I have a radio in the house with me, give a call to BTurck on channel 3 if you have handhelds. Bill

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.

      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
