      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 am trying to make one more trip up this year! What will the shore look like as far as driving on after all of this warm weather? This weekend I dont think that there will be any problems but I would like to fish in the warmer weather that we are suposed to have next weekend! I just dont want to drive 4 hours only to not be able to get on the lake. Any input would help greatly!!!

5 degrees tonight and 10 degrees tomorrow night. This weekend is no problem getting out. The forecast for next Wed. is 44 with showers, Thursday is 54 with some showers. I'm hoping to keep the houses out until the end of the month but I'm starting to squirm a little. crazy.gif Beyond 2 feet of water we'll be fine. But how to get to 2 feet of water. confused.gif

Looks like Roger's website thinks he'll be shut down for trucks after this weekend (18th) and questionable for ATV's past the crack for even next weekend (24th). Any updates on the other access points would be appreciated.

Just talked to Todd at Morts Dock (also on the southshore, down from Rogers) and he said the conditions are good at Morts. The access and the roads are good and they are still open to all vehicle access and will continue to be as long as people are able to get out safely. He does have a bridge out on the pressure ridge which is in good shape now. We don't know what the wheather is going to do, and it's too far away to predict next weekend, but they are hoping to still have the access and roads in good shape to allow vehicles out next weekend...again, weather permitting. As for fishing, this weekend they had some anglers out hole hopping under 2 miles out and they were doing fairly good with the crappies.

Also talked to Westwind and they said their access and roads are in good shape and not going to close the access down to vehicle traffic now, and most anglers are fishing this side of the break. Our anglers out of Hillmans last night said travel was good. Again, as for next weekend...if you are heading up on Friday call the access owners on Thursday to see what the latest conditions are.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
