      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 .

Guess I may need to find a auger extension! Listening to a local radio station, there was a report of average thickness of 36" on many lakes!!?? What have you guys seen?

I walked out in fron of my place on S. Turtle on Tuesday - 26 inches.

I woukd not be surprised to find substantially thicker ice, however. If you have an auger extension, I would at least bring it and the wrench along.

How late into the season will otter tail retain safe ice? I'd like to hit it in march for some perch. Anyone catching any small sturgeon?

Boy that is a hard one to answer, Going to depend on how much snow we get, the temps in the next couple weeks, and how much wind..... As it will open up along the shore lines

Hard to get a straight answer from a fisherman laugh.gif

pretty thick still anywhere you go.. I found the ice will flood pretty good after drilling a hole if you don't wait till the water settles before pushing the slush away.. I pushed the slush away right after and it flooded all around the hole like 3 inches and my feet we soaked.. caught some fish though....

Fished some last week. I had a tape measure with me, and most spots ran around 29-32 inches.
