      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 .

Snail, Turtle, Lake Jane, Demontreville. Lots of good options close by. Many of those are catch and release for LMB

If you're in Shoreview and don't want to go far, Turtle would be the one to go to. C & R for bass and you can get a few decent sized ones.

I heard the water is very low on Turtle. It can be tricky getting out of that bay by the launch when the water is low. We had to cut the motor and push ourselves over that long poing with a paddle last fall.

You might want to use the trolling motor if you go between the grass island and bouys on Turtle. Water was only 1 foot there last week and there are big rocks. I got through with the merc prop running trimmed up almost out of the water. Caught two 12-13" bass, they were pretty shallow last week.

Also use the side of the boat ramp closer to the dock, other side is not level and your boat won't load right when you take out. County fixed the ramp last year, but now there is a big hole at the end again.
