      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 .

Panfish for Kids - Tonka

Recommended Posts

Looking to take the kids out this weekend for some catch & release panfishing - anyone kind enough to share a Tonka hot spot? Kids get bored very fast, would love to provide an hour or 2 of fun for them. Thanks!

if i were you id try some of the smaller lakes instead of tonka, there is alot of water to cover out there, but if you have to go to tonka just about any weed line off shore will probably produce some fish.

We had great luck a couple of weeks ago in Wayzata Bay picking up little perch. I had my 10 yr old stepdaughter along and she was having a blast.

Find some weeds on Grey's Bay - good place for little sunnies with the occasional slimer... The perch on Wayzata are way too small to be any fun IMHO.

Yeah, bring some tip-ups if you've got em or pick a few up if you can afford them. Fish one hole for pannies and the other with a tip-up for pike or whatever. Could increase your chances. I know the kids are so thrilled with pike on tip-ups that it's the main thing they want to do now while they run around on the ice. Heck. I like to do that.
