      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 .

twin lakes

Recommended Posts

Wow did I have a day monday afternoon, I boated 8 the largest 28 inches and 5lbs, fat female. They were hitting rapalas and daredevils as long as it had green in it they wanted it! Talked to one guy at the landing he boated 2 over 30 inches. All were C&R'd.

Twin Lakes in Brooklyn Center/Crystal? Congrats if it was - I thought that's the dead sea. I haven't fished it in years, but I grew up blocks away.

yes, the BC/crystal twin lakes off 100. I live nearby and figured for the holiday may be less boat traffic, which there was. I was throwing around for crappies, no luck then figured well I'll throw a rapala around and see what happens. First cast had to bring in about a 3lb northern. All together I boated 8, one hammer handle I think I caught twice. A fat female was the last one boated. Talked to a guy at the landing who put two 30+ inchers in his boat. I was solo in the boat so I was never able to get any good pics.

I havent fished Twin in open water for years. But you should still be able to launch on Lower Twin at the intersect of Hwy 81 and Hwy 100. There is a little park there with an actual boat ramp with parking spots. On Upper and Middle Twin there is little to no parking. I might have to meet up with some of you guys for some pike! It would be a fun blast from the past!!
