      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 .

newbie to the area, lookin for some advice

Recommended Posts

I just moved here as my fiance' is attending DMU for a year of grad school. I am originally from central MN, so fishing is a pasttime of mine I am not going to pass up for a year! Just looking for some info regarding techniques and locations to get me started here. don't worry, i typically fish sportfish, so catch and release is something I practice regularly. I won't clean out your secret spot, just looking for a place to spend some time. maybe i can even fish with ya if ya don't mind! need a partner? anyone have any advice? thanx

Maybe even catfish, as I have never fished for them. Typically, I fish for pike and bass

I actually know a few people in that area in the medical field that are dying for people to go with them. If you need to get ahold of someone let me know. I don't think there are any secret spots the river has decent catfishing, and you can catch big carp if your willing in saylorville.

Red Rock Lake by Pella Municipal Airport. Fish by the dam, you'll catch Stripers, Flat Heads, Channels, white Bass, crappies, and more all day.
