      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 .

Any of them! Bring a shovel. I was on two lakes yesterday with limited travel possible. If you've got good clearance, good tires, avoid the drifts you can travel most places. I don't, so I've been limited to little truck travel. 1/2 ton ext. cab chev. Lots of frame, running boards...to get hung up on. I beleive Reno is driveable, Minnewaska,(rough trail) Big chip, (plowed on to access, stuck after that) Brent

My father and I are coming up to the Alexandria area this weekend and am not real familiar with the area. I was curious (and I know with the snow there has been less people out) if anyone had any tips for a good crappie lake/bite to start at. We are willing to break through the snow but just having a hard time deciding where to go with so many choices. Thanks for any help!

There is probably 10 to 14 inches of snow on the lakes, and slush starting to build under the snow as the weight of the snow starts to push water onto the ice. Be careful from this point out.

Thanks for the help. I was checking out the map of smith and it doesn't seem to have a whole lot of structure. Is there one side of the lake that is more productive than the other or just need to punch a bunch of holes. I hear a lot about Osakis, but I have never fished it. Thanks again.
