      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 .

My brother went out on south turtle last night and there was a solid 9" to 10" were he was. He said it was very good ice. I would guess all the other smaller lakes have about the same amount if not more. I am predicting at least 11 to 12 inches by the end of this weekend. (hopefully)
He didn't get even a nibble though. They just pretty much threw a portable where ever. Got dark to fast on them.

I am still searching for a used vexilar if anyone has one up for sale.

Whats the Otter Tail ice look like? (thickness) People have been pretty quiet. Is that good or bad? I'm not going to get a chance to get up there until Christmas, but I'm curious how the bite has been. My brother is coming home from Montana for 3 days and I would like to provide some good fishing for him.

Sometimes I wonder if people are trying to cause themselves and others harm or if they are just that stupid. Nobody should be driving on the lakes right now with a vehicle. It is rediculous. Did you read that report about the guy with his kids in the car on ottertail just flying around on the ice making fishermans holes wave when there were patches of 6" ice. Poor kids, their dad is obviously a meathead. I would have went and gave those people a talking to.
We can't just stand there and let these idiots do this. Maybe no one has ever told them it is to thin to drive on. Or there just stupid and must drill one hole and see 10 to 12 inches and figure that the whole lake freezes that way. I know I have way to much money sitting on the ice in ice fishing gear and my icehouse for some idiot to come by in a truck and break the ice where I am cause he is to lazy/dumb to walk. Another thing to the people that drive on the ice don't hall *** across the ice it creates a wave under the ice and breaks it easier and makes other fishermans holes splash. I guess I don't want to be a dink but use your heads and be safe people. Well good luck to everyone and be safe.

The ice is plenty safe to drive on right now. Ottertail has 11 inches Everywhere, except where the open water holes were, which is probably less than 1% of the whole lake's surface. As long as you don't drive on one of those spots, you'll be fine. Most of the other area lakes have 10-12 inches, which according to the DNR is more than enough for a car or small truck.

You may want to check the ice a little more carefully. Drilled several holes on Sat. from the south side of OT to Grandpas Island and most spots were 9-10 in., but where there was snow - 6 in. Don't be crazy, it is not safe to drive EVERYWHERE on the ice.

My buddy and I fished Otter Tail on Saturday and found a large area of ice that appeared to be thinner than the rest, when in fact, it was...only 5"! Use your heads and do not drive cars or trucks on the lakes yet. I was nervous driving my ATV out there!

Just a thought. I was on a lake last year where people just started to drive on,I didn,t think it was safe yet so we used an ATV.After we got the house down and drilled the holes we found that one side of the house has 12" of ice but the other side had 5", a little spooky don't you think.You know the saying to "live or die for", I'll take live.
