      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 .

Is it safe to drive on the ice at the landing at Timbuktu? I would be going into Niles Bay.

I wouldn't if I was you. I am not sure how the ice is up there but getting through either of the narrows would be very questionable. I would go out of the access by Muskego Point and drive from there. With the small amount of snow on the ice you can go anywhere you want. Some of the drifts are very hard though so watch out.

Absolutely not!!!!!!!!!!!! There is no way that even the crazy people would try to get out onto Niles Bay thru Timbuktu. All areas leading away from Timbuktu are bad for vehicles. You will (not might) get wet. Go to Muskego's access or one of the other accesses in Wakemup Narrows and drive up the lake or go around to Vermilion Dam Lodge area and get on the road that comes out in that area. Oak Narrows is bad even for snowmobiles most of the time so keep the vehicles out of there and enjoy the fishing. Quite a few fishing in the crappie area on the north end of Niles this weekend.

Isn't there a staked snowmobile trail that goes through oak narrows? How are the conditions for getting through this area with a snowmobile?

Thanks.

Yes the main snowmobile trail runs through there. This area is known for bad ice. Especially the areas that are marked as bad ice. They only mark the bad areas that are along the snowmobile trail. The east channel also has bad ice in it. Just don't stop in the bad ice areas!!!

I guess I should qualify my response a little more.

When I said vehicles, I meant cars and trucks, not 4 wheelers and snowmobiles. All though, every year, a number of snowmobiles and 4 wheelers get soggy trying to go thru that area.

Yes, there is a snowmobile trail that goes thru Oak Narrows. The trail is safe but stay on the marked route and do not stop in the narrow parts. And as Heartattack states, the north east channel is not marked and also has some very dangerous ice on it.

O.K., thanks for the info. Don't get up that way too much so I wanted to check it out before we take a snowmobile run up to the landing and VDL area.
