      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 have not been out in a week, and I have no clue how the ice looks (except from the highway). Wondering if anyone can give a brief ice report...

Although I went to Erie Saturday, I didn't see a soul on Belle from the road where the turn to Erie is. Haven't fished Belle either, but Erie had a good 24" of ice. I'd think Belle would be similar.

Not sure what the launches are like now though. They might be good enough yet.

Lots of water on top of the ice. I drove by Waconia on my way home yesterday and you could barely tell the lake was frozen.

Was out on Clearwater last weekend and it was pretty sloppy, you need 4 wheel drive for sure out there. Dont know about any of the lakes south of HWY 12 though.

I would not drive on Washington with a vehicle at this time. Lots of moving water.

Ice was fine on Belle last night. With the colder nighttime temps, it should only get better throuout the weekend. Last night leaving the lake the water/slush was starting to firm up. Ice was still in the 20's..

I would like to give you a fishing report, but I can't cuz I was the only one on the lake last night...... wink.gif

The late afternoon bite was better than at night. 22 feet of water. IMO opinion, I would go shallower than this next time, since most of the fish came through in schools prior to the "power hour". I can only imagine they were making there way in shallower. Maybe 16-18 feet?

Most were on the small side. Couple other mixed in. You would pull a couple out of the hole and then move on to the next.

No it wasn't like in the past for big ones. I am quite sure we will not see that for a couple of more years... mad.gif
