      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 .

Just got back from the St. Louis River and not much change at all . Still very low . I have launched my boat at Arrowhead for years and didn't know until this year that there is a big sandbar just to the east of the ramp . Saw a few guys with smaller boats that were able to push them in off the bunks but I can see where bigger boats would take some doin' to get them in .

The river is as low as I've ever seen it. I have always been able to get up and above highway 23, but not Thursday morning. Nor could several others. Saw a small 16' boat make it, but he barked up his prop doing so. And I tried several other routs, all to no avail. But the river level is really dependent on Lake Superior, even as far up as highway 23. The rain actually helped flow levels, they were quite high. But with the passing of the low pressure area, the seiche tide on Lake Superior was out, causing a very low condition. The river has also changed course flowing out of the #23 hole, splitting into several more channels. This is bad navagation news, since none have as good a chance to bore a safe path as one or two major flow routes, and the velocity of the flow was high and disperse. If you want to go above 23, bring your boots because you might have to pull your boat through the low spots. Right now, the only thing that will significantly impact the level of the river is a rise in Lake Superior, and don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen.

I was camping with my wife's sister and brother in law last weekend just below the hwy 23 bridge and seen more than a few people have to strip to their underwear and jump in to get across the bar. My wifes brother in law managed to find a path to get across, but he spends the 1st 3 weeks of the season down there camping and knows his way around pretty well. But even at that he figures to destroy at least one prop per season.

Still very low. Only good thing about this low water is I get to mark all sorts of structure on my GPS. Some of it I never new was there. I have found some spots that I havent fished before that I will fish a lot in the future.

I actually got brave and put my stainless prop back on. I couldnt stand how my alum. prop handled.

Anyone catching more than a couple eyes in Barkers Island area?
