      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 .

Went up on Saturday 12/23. found good 8-9" in all the spots we fished. Good clear ice under the snow. The snow was nice made for better footing for sure. Fishing.....very slow. Some perch during the day, a couple of crappies and done small eye. A lot of lookers and chasers but no takers. It was a beautiful day to be out though. Several houses over on the hump toward HWY 65 access. Headed to LOW on 12/26 so probably won't be back till New Years Eve, most likely stay over that night. Hope you have a Merry Christmas. Bill

Thanks for the update. Good to know there's fishable ice.

Hopefully we'll get a cold snap so they can hold the annual contest.

Ron the contest is on the 20th of January. It will be held on the east side of the lake near the Hwy 65 access. For more info you can contact Bowes Landing or the Crows Nest. I believe tickets are available either place or on the ice. They sent mine through the mail as a member of the Sportsman Club. Not sure if I will be there or not, possible trip back to LOW. Bill

Was up this past weekend, 9" of ice, the top 1" to 2" is frozen slush. Cold temps in the forecast for making more ice.

Dave, I was there last weekend and the ice was very good. Measured 10-10 1/2" where I was. The slush on top had frozen solid and allowed for some easy scouting by putting some water on the ice and shooting the vexi right through it. Released lots of you know whats and several small eyes. Bill

Dave: Were you over my way at all when you were up? I fished Sat night and Sunday morning. If you see my cabin light or dock light on I am there. Blue Clam Voyegeur and Red Polaris Explorer 500, usually off the point toward Big Island. If you are over that way knock on the door of the fish house LOL. Headed for LOW on Monday, so not sure if I'll be back up on the 20th or maybe not till the 27th. Bill

Bill, I didn't see your last post 'till now. I don't have a wheeler or sled so I haven't been over your way. I've been on foot, hasn't been safe to drive out yet. I'm usually fishing out front of my place, blue clam jr.

I'll be at the contest, blue/fur bommer hat, any FM'ers there say hi. Dave

Dave: Just back from LOW. Haven't been up in a couple of weeks. Headed up tomorrow morning to hook up with Zaudtke Electric about moving my electric meter. Going to expand the entryway at the cabin and need to have him move the power. Don't think I'm going to fish though. Can't make it up on Saturday, but I already bought my tickets so maybe I'll win something LOL. Hope to come up next Friday for the day and chase the you know whats..... Good luck Saturday. Bill

Bill, I caught 3 perch during the contest but not big enough to be money fish. First place was a 6-1/8 oz. perch.

Lots of perch caught at the contest and a few small walleyes. Ice was 14" to 15", full size trucks out there (I didn't drive on the ice though). I see a "village" has appeared in the area you fish. Dave
