      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've heard the lake/reservoir above the dam at Willow River State Park near Hudson, WI has some good bass fishing. Can anyone confirm? Largemouth and smallmouth? What type of structure is productive? Baits?

thanks.

Not sure about the bass but i know the lake is only open to canoes and rowable boats! No motors allowed even trolling motors are not allowed unless you are handi-capped. Used to catch some really nice pannies during spawning out there though!

I used to fish tht lake religiously in college when I went to River Falls. There are some decent bass in there. Both Smallies and Largies. The shoreline across from the launch was always more productive for me. Standard bass arsenal of Jigs, Plastics, Cranks and topwater work well. There are a ridiculous amount of crayfish in that water way. Definitely key in on that this time of year!! Good Luck...

i had about 6-7 inches in the spots that i fished today. it was a tough bite, but we ended up getting enough for a meal. you had to be quick on the hook set as many of the fish would just tap at the bait.

I have caught decent blue gills, a few crappies, and some really small perch. I think people bass fish there in the summer, but that obviously isn't as effective in the winter.
