      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 .

What is the water level like?

I am headed to my cabin on the Cloquet and will be fishing mainly the east side. Is the river and lake down like the big lake is reported to be?

Anyone gonna be fishing anytime Thursday to Saturday? It would be great to meet some FM'ers fishing! laugh.gif

We mainly fish the river from Alden to the last rapids above the lake couple times a summer. Do a nice float trip for several hours and cast for the smalley's, but catch an eye here and there. Last few years we have been hitting the lake for something different.

Canoed across the lake and up the Cloquet for the opener. The lake level is quite high. There is no drop from the river into the lake. Motor boats going right up to the base of whitesides portage. We didn't go above portage.

i was at my parents house this past weekend on island and it looked like the lake was down about 3-4ft. They live in south bay and i know you had to be darn careful coming into the main lake.

We fished the West side on opener & the depths didn't seem any different than last year during the ALS.

Just got back from the cabin and had good luck on Island. We fished the usual area- mouth of the river on east side and various islands. Most were small but action none the less.

We ventured to the west side for the first time. Thanks to the lake master chip we were able to see 2 sunken islands out in the middle of the lake that were not visible. We are flying along when the depth suddenly goes from the upper 30's to 5 feet. We slow down and the depth finally stops at 3.5 feet.

We fished an area told to me by a local and had good results. Had a nice shore lunch on an island we pulled up on.

Got a nice surprise when I caught a nice crappie. I wasn't aware there were crappies in the lake. I lost it at the boat though.

I think next time I will explore the west basin more.

Anyone have any troubles with their gps on the lake? We would connect off and on while on the east side but it was hit and miss. The west side was worse. I can't figure out how I can't aquire sat's in the middle of open water.

Does MP&L manage the lake level in any particular way? I noticed the lake was several feet down but a guy told me the lake should be back up by middle June.
