      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 .

Anyone been out to Minnetonka yet? Sitting in the office is killing me w/ the warm weather that we have been getting. Is the ice still ok to drive one? I was out this past weekend and have been nailing nice slab crappies in 32fow around an inside turn on a 45 ft hole, west end. I hope I can still drive on the ice by end of this weekend. Also anyone been hitting eyes? I have had no luck yet hitting eyes on tonka. Any info will help. You DON'T have to get coordinates but generally area you have been finding them and either west/east end. Thanks...CATCH&RELEASE!!!

Ice is still plenty thick. 26" where I fished last night. Walleyes on west end are hard to nail down this late. I've been chasing them for a long time and finally threw in the towel. When Feb rolls around I chase crappies. The east end has been better of late for walleyes. Deep water 25ft to 30ft off of some shoreline structure has been the best of late. You'll need to take it from there. Good late ice walleye spots are not going to be shared on this open forum.

Good to hear that the ice is still good! Hope this weekend will help more too. I need to put more time before spring gosh! But thanks for the info. I havn't really hit the walleyes hard yet but I've heard its good here and there. I tend to quit and hit the slabs out of there. Much fun! Do you know if its safe enough to cross bays, say wayzata to brown? Havn't tried it yet... always tend to hope around in the specific bay i'm in.

3 Questions:

1.)I know you guys mentioned earlier that the ice is ok to drive on because it is 26 inches thick. I just wanted to ask if you think this large snow storm will play any factor in driving on the ice. The added weight of the snow and all, do you think that will make it unsafe or will it still be ok?

2.)Also I am looking for any good bait ideas for catching some Northern on Minnetonka. I had luck early in the year with suckers and it seems to have faded away. Last weekend I used some extra large dead packaged shad and didn't even get one flag.

3.)Last Question. Are you having luck catching the crappies on crappie minnows or a different bait.

Any advice would be helpful.

Just thought I would give you an update from my recent trip out yesterday. I was out on Minnetonka from about 11AM until about 8PM. Ice was at least 25 inches thick still. The top inch or so was pretty weak and worthless, but there was still good solid ice underneath. I didn't catch anything but perch the whole time. By the time I left I had a good 1-2 foot drift of snow around my portable.
