      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 .

This Friday

This Friday I took off work, and by the sound of things I will be dragging my fish trap, not driving with it in the back.

Are there any spots on the south side within 1/2 mile or no more than a mile from shore that would be worth fishing? How about Rocky Reef? Has Isle Bay been going yet? Thanks in advance for the replies.

I agree. Quite a few people are doing well out of Appeldoorn's it isn't too bad a walk out to just the other side of Doe Island.

I would stay on the road though, there is still plenty of slush and snow on the ice that hasn't melted. It would make more work for sure if you went "cross country".

I am personally done ice fishing for the year, but if I were to go up now or this weekend I would hit the public access’s. The snow we got did two things. It stopped all travel on to lake from public access’s and has acted like a blanket insulation for shore line. The public access’s might even be a way on for cars or trucks, because snow has melted down. The access south of Sunset bay did not have any tracks even going into parking lot on Sun.. It wasn’t even plowed. Proceed with caution when driving or even walking on to lake, but there’s around three feet out there still. This is my thoughts on this subject.

Good luck!

I would highly discourage going off the roads right now. There are a lot of open holes that have been insulated by the snow cover and have gotten a lot larger from the water creating a tornado effect and running down them. I can confirm 3 vehicles dropping there front ends in these holes. One of the gentlemen ended up with a broken front axle. I would hate to see that happen to anyone, as the end result is not a cheap repair frown.gif

Shackbash,

I have to disagree with your comment on the public access. Especially using Cedar Creek's. There has been alot of people that have fished in that area before the snow fall and I have scouted that whole area before I plowed the roads. There are holes that were open twice their size two weeks ago and I can assure you that these holes are now more open than two weeks ago.

If you haven't been out on the ice every day and know the conditions of the ice (especially early ice and late ice) you best stay on the roads that the resorts put out there for you! I can't stress how important this is on this lake. Mille Lacs is NOT like your typical lake.

Be safe and use the roads.

ish On!!!
