      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 .

Hey guys,

How has the action been so far in March?

Has anyone fished by Morris Point/Bostic Creek area? What about Warroad or Springsteel?

Ran into a friend in the baitshop Saturday morning and he tells me he's been doing fairly well so far around the Swift ditch and Warroad areas.

I'm ready to do the tip-up thing but most of my fishing buds are all Walleye snobs!!! That and I'm still after that elusive 15 inch Perch, a tough nut to crack but I've been close!

Dredging is starting today, and according to the Corps of Eng. it will not interfere with the public access. On the other side of the coin, I also heard they were going to dredge almost all the way to the blinker, so a person might have to go a half mile or so out of the way to get to Swift. I'll check it out this weekend, and let ya know what's happening.

My brother and girlfriend just came back from nothern fishing out of warroad.Tuesday they caught 11,and had alot of flags they missed, fish would real out line and drop it.Only 1 fish under the slot with the biggest 40 in. Lots in the 36 37 range. Wednesday only caught 5 all in slot.He said the ice was really sloppy Tuesday but firmed up overnight and never warmed up enough to make a mess Wednesday,Overall good fishing for only 4 lines down. I'll be heading up Sat. morn. to show him how it's done grin.gif I'll give my report when I get back Good luck to all.

Anyone know where to get a bunch of ciscos, herring, or smelt anywhere from the cities up to the lake? Used to live in Bemidji and local grocery stores had whole herring that worked good. Down here in the cities neither Cub or Festival foods had anything. Thanks. Coming up this weekend.

Bait shops up here have Herring in stock this time of year. Supermarkets in Roseau and Warroad have large whole Smelt usually.

Found some at a meat/seafood market here in the cities. I think it was a good deal too. Two pounds of frozen smelt(roughly 20 fish) for $3.59 a bag. Stocked up. Anyone ever get any fish in four mile bay where the river dumps in?

Lot's of Green and Slimeys to be caught in the bay for sure, maybe not right there where the river dumps in though. Try the back end of the 'bay hole', or the shallow water just west barely off of the river channel maybe?
