      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 .

How Much Snow?

Recommended Posts

How much snow around OT and are the trails going to be open for next weekend ? I'm sure all the 612 boys and girls are interested. We got a foot in St. Michael but the toys are up there. As always, thanks for the 411.

Around Battle Lake I measured 12-14" around the house.

Put on 100 miles on the sleds today...Battle Lake, Leaf Valley, Brandon, Dalton, Underwood and back. Once the groomers get out it will be great. Haven't ridden fresh stuff like this in 10 years.. cool.gif Average depth to the south was about 10".

The wonderful paved trail from Ashby to Dalton was thin in some open stretches from a groomer making an early run...might want to avoid that if the sun shines bright Tues and Wed as predicted. Just a guess as it happened last year...

At least a foot around the Detroit Lakes area. The Lakes-Vergas trails were in pretty good shape this morning, as there wasn't a lot of traffic on the trails yet. I put on about 80 miles this weekend riding in the woods. It was fun blasting through the powder, although in a few spots it was getting a little much already. I'm surprised I didn't get stuck in a few spots, and managed to ride of it. It was awesome riding this weekend but I'm sure the trails will be beat down pretty hard by next weekend unless the groomer gets out...

12" here in Duluth at noon on Sunday might be an inch more or so by midnight. Some busy winds make for some drifting but it is nice to have some snow on the ground. Need that moisture as we are bone dry.

Pavements melted clear in Perham but ditches/trails look great! 10" on the DATA trails in Douglas Cty. 12" or more in the yard ChuckN must have gone right by I'm between Leaf Valley, Millerville, Brandon. Crazy year only one snowmobiler has gone by our house on the DATA trail all year (Sunday morning a loner). Saw lot's of groups riding the ditches but not many on the trails except the paved rail-trail.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.

      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
