      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 .

I will be up to fish Bowstring on Saturday and have a few questions.

1. How's the crappie bite been? Is it dawn and dusk or will they bite during the day if you can find them?

2. Can you get out of both accesses, northeast and northwest or is one better than the other?

3. Are there any ice heaves to pay attention to and where are they?

Thanks and I'll post results when I get back.

I was just out there last weekend with a buddy of mine and some of his friends. They had the best luck in the morning and during the day, but that was before the last storm front come through. After this next wave of snow, you probably won't be able to get around on the lake in a vehicle. You'll have to use a snowmobile, but like I said it depends on how much snow we get in the next couple days. There's a pressure ridge that runs east/west from Muskrat/Grouse Bay to Cow Bay. I'm not sure if there's any spots where a person can get across it safely, it was pretty high where we were fishing.

How much snow is on the lake? Can you get by with just a 4x4 truck?

We fished Bowstring on Saturday. About 1 foot of snow, maybe a little more. Debated if we would make it without getting stuck but we got around a lot easier than I thought. My truck is an 04 Silverado Z-71 Crew Cab. We went about 25-35 mph to keep momentum. Only caught some small perch but had fun anyway. We must have looked like a ball of snow bombing across the lake. We went on the NE access and left at the NW access.

Any fish being caught this weekend. Any info would help considering weather or not to head that way.

We fished off the south end near the breaks. Lots of hammerhandles and a few perch. The crappies wern't very cooperative. We did have a good laugh though when some very inebriated dudes tried to take on the pressure ridge. They made it across the first time but when they tried to come back they sank her down to the frame of the old Dodge. About 2 hrs later they were able to winch it out and continue on..
