      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 .

It's been raining today. About the only place we have snow is where it was plowed up. Plus they are talking 50s this weekend. It is going fast now.

Just got off the lake. About 2-4 inches of water on top of the ice. It is SLIPPERY out there!

Thanks guys for your response. I was going up this weekend to check on the place and wasn't sure if I should take the 4X4 or car to get down our driveway. Sounds like the snow for the most part is history.

With the lack of snow, where do people predict the water levels being this spring? Especially Pelican and North Long. Same as Oct., lower, higher?

Pelican is going to eat a lot of lower units this year!! She is low right now, this snow melt will do very little

I thought the rule was an inch of water for every foot of snow........may gain an inch or so....not enough to counter the foot we lost.

That's going to suck. Currently we have 309ft of dock and there was only 17" of water at the end of the dock in Oct. I am not sure the boat will even fit on the lift. Hopefully the water is low enough that the dock will reach the drop off.

Trophy,

Are you on the east side of the lake? A friend lives just north of the public beach and all of last year his dock/lift was useless. That has got to suck paying those lakeshore mortages/taxes and not be able to even dock and use the boat. It is not looking good at all we need some serious rain. Hang in there and pray for rain.

Yeah, we are north of Velvet Beach, part of the big sand bar that comes out. It is going to be a long year if we don't get rain. When we bought the place 5 years ago we had 100ft of dock and we had 40" of water. Scary how a couple of bad years can drop the water that much. Without access to the water the property value really isn't what its supposed to be. Jetskis are even hard to get off the lifts. It will all come back up in due time, but it is hard in the low times.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting
