      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 .

In the Annandale to Maple lake areas, there are people still fishing, but the shoreline areas are getting dicey.

This might be something you don't want to hear...I am looking forward to open water, so bring it on. Nav

I'm hearing reports of 18" yet but take that with a grain of salt, I haven't punched a hole in awhile and these 50's are going to take their toll on the ice.

I walked the shoreline of Augusta last night and had to search for a place to get on. Also, areas with leaves and branches that the fall winds blew into drifts on the lake are almost holes now.

So bring planks if you're going to give it a whirl....and be careful!

I had no problem getting on an area private lake yesterday and Lake Sarah on Monday, but I think this is our last weekend coming up. Ice was still 12in. plus on both lakes.

Go get yourself some open water action below the Mill Pond dam between Marie and Caroline. At this time of year there are Carp, Suckers, Crappie, Sunfish, bullheads, perch, walleye, and pike to be caught and best of all you can cast and don't have to stare down a hole.

      I haven't ice fished this lake in about 4 years. It had a pretty large scale winter kill a few years back. I am sure it has since rebounded. Lakes like this typically come back pretty quickly following winter kill, especially with the mild winters we have had as of late. Mayhew used to be loaded with smaller perch, and had decent crappie action at times. I too would be curious to know how Mayhew is doing. Wish I could be more help to you.

      Be very cautious on lakes even further north of the Ogilvie area lakes. As of 3 days ago, there was still significant open water on Ripple, Hickory, Big Pine, Cedar, Bay, Farm Island, and numerous other lakes in the Mille Lacs, and Aitken area. Be very cautious, take your time, and test the ice every 10 yards or so, particularly if you get anywhere near anything that would be considered mid lake. Area resorts and bait shops are very reluctant to give advice that would be considered a green light to access even the small lakes. Be safe....

      East access..... only 3.5" - 4"  200 yards out.  .... don't know north acces as I saw enough to  stay off.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.

    • dindunuffins
