      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 .

Gull Lake Accessibility

Recommended Posts

How likely is it that gull lake will be accessible on march 24? Or because of all the snow we've gotten will it be too slushy by then to even worry about it?

I live on the west side of the lake and there is a lot of snow after this last storm. It was not very easy driving my truck out to my fish house last Monday after the fist snow storm. We did get the fish house off the ice but it was a challenge. After this storm I really doubt if you could drive a 4 wheel drive truck on the lake. A snowmobile is probably the only answer. I don't think we will be able to drive on the lake by the 24th but we shall see. Will need a major warm up for that to happen...

There is alot of snow at this point!

I'd be fishing out of the access on the eastside of the lake. It wouldn't bother me to have to walk out because I wouldn't have to go out very far. But I'm just wondering if the shoreline ice will be stable or will I have to rig something up to get across some open water?

I would say that the weather is going to be warm enough here on out, and after this last storm, I agree that a sled will be the only motorized way to go.

Keep in mind the culvert in hole in the day. By then you might be seeing some open water.I would bet there will be a fair amount of slush, but until the snow is gone the ice should stay. When it melts it will find the cracks and cause erosion, but the ice in general, if not sun beaten shouldn't become too honeycombed.

You might have to bring a canoe though if the sun hits the spot hard...?

Also keep in mind that the walleyes run in the streams around the second week of April, give or take a week, northerns run prior to that. smirk.gif

Keep off the ICE! Let the fish do there thing for a few months with out being disturbed. I'm sure your freezer is full anyway. LOL, Do what you want, but be sure to where your water wings.

I think my ice fishing is done for the year...I was on the canadien border this past weekend and was walking through slush and 2 inches of water...not so fun.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
