      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 .

Minnesooootan looking for local advise

Recommended Posts

Will be visiting the relatives in Plattsmouth for the 4th. I have never fished Nebraska and was wondering if it would be worthwhile to haul the 14' Lund down?

I usually target pan fish and northerns.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance !

Where is Plattsmouth located? I've heard of it but not sure where it's at. What lakes are around the area? I will do some research and see what I can come up with.

It looks like 30 or so miles south of Omaha. I just found out they are on Beaver lake which is a few miles south of Plattsmouth. Maybe it is worth a try.

I used to live at Beaver Lake and worked some at the marina. It is a private lake so the only boats allowed on the water must be registered to the property owner. That being said there are several access lots around the lake most with docks that lot owners and guests can fish at.

It is a good crappie lake, but in July they will probably be suspended in deeper water. Largemouth fishing is also pretty good. I have talked to some guys down there that would go out on the morning of the fourth and do good using topwaters which is always fun. If you find a good hole or brush pile you can get into some good catfish my PB down there was a 29lb flathead caught off a dock. And I've seen and heard of several in the 50 lb range caught in the evenings on access lots. There are walleye that you can catch when targeting other species, but I don't think the eye population is enough to get a good pattern going. They put a bunch of perch in a few years ago, and some are getting to be big enough to make a good meal out of, but for every one big perch you will probably get 10 that are under 8 inches.

The lake gets real busy on holiday weekends, so if you plan on fishing you may want to try early morning. The night of the fourth the lake looks like a war zone with all the fireworks and smoke rolling around the lake, and the lake turns into a chaotic boat parking lot.
