      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 .

can you hunt spring lake?

Recommended Posts

If your talking about spring lake that is backwaters of the Mississippi off of highway 55 yes you can but that lake gets so much pressure it is tuff and you have to be out there really early to hold your spot. And your still not garinted to not have some yahoo come in and set up right on top of you. Trust me its happened to me quite a few times. But if you think it would be worth a shot then go for it.

If I recall, there are some areas there that are in inver grove that are not legally huntable. I don't know for sure, but be sure to check first to save some hassle.

If you are talking about the Spring Lake is a Backwater of the Mississippi, it can be hunted, gets tons of pressure.

Lots of vandalism has occurred to trucks and trailers at the landing in recent years.

IMO it is not worth hunting, too many idiots.

If this is the Spring Lake west and south of Proir Lake I think that it is in Scott county and I used to hunt it in the early 80's late season on the west side of the lake but its been years since I've even seen that lake but would think that it would still be leagle to but I may be wrong.

Backwater area gets a lot of pressure but during the week late in the year it can be great. My duck hunting has dropped off the last couple years but hitting a cold front late in the year during the week is very much worth the early rise and idiots out there. I have never had any problems but I have never been down that way on a weekend. I can only imagine.

All I can say is late season mallards really get my blood going
