      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 .

I plan on coming up Mon. and Tues. next week.
Any chance of NOT being able to access the lake?
Somebody told me you might need auger extension.
Will I need one for my lazer?

As of Monday a guy didn't need an extention, although there wasn't much auger left on my Lazer when I broke through.

With warmer weather, I doubt you have anything to worry about...at least as far as getting a hole in the ice.

i just talked with jerry at rogers. he said they are still good, however they are taking it day to day. talked to hudecs also. they said they have straw on their access, and expect to make it through the weekend. havn't talked to west wind yet. last year it seemed to be the on shore part that slowed them down. i see they put alot of money into improving that situation. i hope it works out. don't know about benz. he might do himself a favor by dropping a note here. over all i think the lake should be accessable through the weekend at least some where by vehicle. although it might get a little rough and wet. once on the lake it should be fine. way plenty of ice smile.gif anybody care to chime in here--- w.w. bartender? kelly? first get your stick on the ice, then keep it there!--jigglestick--

Hi All,

Good Luck,

It all depends on the weather but I feel we will be out at least another week. The cooler temps today are freezing the water on that is on the ice. I hear that Hudec's, Mort's and Roger's have all put hay down on their landings and the road from the bar to the lake at West Winds appears to be past the muddiest times and is starting to dry a little bit.
I guess just keep checkig the forum cause if something happens it will be posted.

Getting on the lake is pretty easy usually, but when you get in the triangle, it's possible to come off in a different place than you went on. It happened to us last week and we even watched where the bridge got moved. Thanks for keeping it safe!

This colder weather should have froze up all the water that was on the ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!

      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
