      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 drove by Clear Lake today (3-29) about 10 am, and there was about 20' of ice "buildup" on the north shore, right out from the boat landing.

Other than that, the lake was open.

My 5 year old is getting the itch. He got a new fishing rod for Christmas, and open water can't come soon enough.

Not to mention I bought a new boat last fall and didn't get out nearly enough, maybe Dad's alittle itchy too???? Fishing wise??? blush.gif

Forest lake one is starting to give way with 50 yards of open water on the south shore today and a big rift in the middle of the lake so I'd say another day or two and a little wind and rain and it will be open as well.

Clear Lake was in the same condition today. It's pulled away from the shoreline, too.

SoHaad, give me a shout, I'm thinking Redwing or maybe a trout run up the shore. I have a stay at home weekend this weekend but maybe we can hit the Croix Good Friday if you are off.

Tunrevir,

Hey buddy, I've been meaning to give you a shout for weeks now. You know how it goes. I'll try calling you tonight. I may be getting a different boat. I'm also itching to get out on the Croix.

Forest Lake is really opening up today. There are several open areas, including areas in the middle. If our weather continues or get a good wind, it may be ice free by Monday.

FL one almost clear tonight and with the rain and wind I have to beleive it will be open by the weekend! Sohaad, I am planing on hittin the river on good Friday don't now if that works for you or not. The boat you have, my dad may be interested in it for a Florida boat and in that case you may get to fish from it again! He is looking for something to keep down there on the river and feels the Tin Can is not big enough, can you send me some specs on your boat? Might be a good deal for us all the way around!

Tunrevir~

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
