      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 .

I used to live on 9th Ave S right across from Lake George. I would run and walk around it a decent amount. I don't know if I have ever seen anyone fish it though. Its tiny, but I bet if it had any species it would be bullhead! I don't know much about fishing in that area except I used to see people below the dam there catch fish. Mostly Smallies I think.

Brownie or JR.

I have plans to go insane with a seine this week for bullheads. It was just some chatter from last week and this weekend, but if a commitment could be made, we could pick up some major amounts of bullheads between a good group working. I also have seine, waders and one other guy who would like to help out in this. Pretty much ready to go. I also know of some spots we could turn some heads and pull out some bullies. Not far at all from the St. Cloud area. Just a drive east.

E-mail is in my sig if interested. smile

Got a report this weekend from the local neighbor kids that a lake in area has them going like mad right now. No hook or bait needed. They would just drop in a cane pole with line and a hunk of rag tied to the end of the line. Feel the nibble, lift and sling the bullhead over their shoulders on to land. A kid on a bike with a tackle box and fishing pole (cane also) is the best source of info for the local bait and rough fish bite wink

You gave it the college try.
