      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 .

7 Mile Creek (mankato area) Question??

Recommended Posts

Last week I fished this spot near a creek inlet and had ZERO luck. It looked like a good spot with current, log jams ect. Has anyone had any luck fishing this area? I'm thinking of fishing it again and moving further South near the rocks.

Haven't shore fished that area since they started to close it at night. Used to be a nice place to fish when you were able to be their after dark.

You didn't have any luck because you were fishing a shallow sandbar. Where the creek goes in it's only a couple feet deep until half way in the middle of the river then it drops off. You can fish the rocks closer to 169 but you will get snagged more often than not.

Thanks for the info guys. Actually, the DNR stopped by to say hi while I was there and said to keep fishing and he would leave me alone as long as I wasn't causing any trouble. Really nice guy, forgot to get his name.

Not trying to seek out your honey holes, but are there any other shore fishing spots near mankato that would ward visiting? Again, I'm not trying to steal your personal fishing hole, but a place to go and have more than a 20% chance of catching some cats...big or small. Something is better than nothing at all.

Thanks again guys for the help!
