      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 .

Lake water levels, especially Ida

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what the lake water levels are like in the Alex area, especially Lake Ida? I've heard reports of a few lakes in Minnesota being as much as 4 feet low. We fish Ida the first week of June and I was hoping there was not that bad a drought in the Alex area. Thanks.

Miltona is a tad bit high, compared to where we should be this time in the spring. The late season snow, a few good early spring rains, and we made up for all the deficit from last fall.

I assume Ida is the same.

I went past the creek between Ida and Charlie and it was up fairly high at least to normal stage so a good amount of water is going over the dam on Ida.

Water levels on Ida are good. Dramatically up from last fall. I'll be hitting it this upcoming weekend. Looks like I should pack the longies and the rain gear.

I was on Ida on Saturday and the water levels at normal levels if not a little high. Now if we could just get the wind to settle down for a little while.

Good to hear!! The water level last summer was way to low on Miltona for my liking.

We have been getting some decent rains the last few days. Lake levels are holding pretty decent as of right now. It would have been nice to see more rain, but if it rains much during the summer, it should be ok. If we have another dry summer, lake levels will be real low come fall, worse than last year.
