      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 Demontraville

Recommended Posts

Demontriville is a great practice lake for Largemouth bass... However, all Largemouth must be released immediately... The bass are always biting on that lake no matter what day in the spring, summer, and fall.

Fished Demontreville last night. What a change in fishing from a southern reservoir! It is very low and the ramp was a bit painful, but definitely a cool lake.

There are some VERY big bass in that lake. I boated a 4 lb class fish and lost a similar sized one by the boat. Around dark, I couldn't believe the amount of hogs surfacing for about 40 minutes...

I have heard of vehicles getting broke into down there. Still true?

Yes. The meth-heads love to prey on the vehicles AND trailers at this ramp.

DON'T leave anything of value in your vehicle!!

The police try and patrol the area more now, but its still not safe. I don't even feel safe walking to my truck at night at this ramp! So many bushes and shadows someone could be hiding in... desperate people do desperate things.

Wow, and to think I had a $400 GPS sitting in my Jeep. Good to know for next time... seems like a decent area, but pretty close to the metro and not well lit at all. Time to get my MN Conceal and Carry.

Fished out there again tonight..... slow night with the exception of a couple little ones.

There is a TON of small bluegill in that lake as well, but I have yet to see a decent sized one.
