      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 fished willow from 2-4 PM. I dropped one hole then took my shovel and started to shovel snow around where I would be sitting to block the wind then all of a sudden my leg went through up to my waist. Wo, that was cold!Water went into my boots but I had hand warmers and a huge scarf of fleece to wrap my foot in the dry foot was warmer than the other one by the time I wanted to leave. Ha, ha. I wasn't walking all the way back after getting wet then after how far I had walked to carry everyting yet through the snow. I had fun though I caught 30 or so fish. I used purple small spoon tipped with a waxie. Blue works good to. All was catch and release. Caught gills.

Willow can be a blast. It really has not seen much pressure yet this ice season compared to last year. Nice report. I've done the wet foot trick before. It's no fun, but I didn't let is spoil my day either.

I took my two boys out to Willow on Sat as well. We squished our way out to the middle of the pond where we had caught fish a couple years back. Was surprised to only find 5 ft of water in that location. Moved closer to the dam and got into 10 ft of water. I managed to find an open hole as well but only got the toe part of the boot in so I avoided the wet foot bit. I dropped a wax worm down that hole and caught a sunny before I could even get the bobber set. Ended up with about a dozen in an hour or so. All small and all released. The oldest boy found some deep slush right close to the dock that went over the top of his boot so we did end up with one wet foot.

I don't suppose the colder weather will make any difference to the slush factor? Looked like the water level in new holes was at least an inch over the ice so the slush will be with us until we get some snow melting, I figure.

I was wondering if the my auger blades are dull or does the ice cut harder when it is this wet? I was struggling to get three holes down with a 4in auger.
