      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Coralville Area

Recommended Posts

hey gang,

how the fishing is the Coralville area. i'll be taking a trip down there this wkend for my daughters gymnastics comp on sunday. so i figure why not go friday nite, and fish saturday. =D

places such as the Tailwater West Camp ground looks really fishy? ive fish teh Redrock area before and is somewat familiar fish fishing the iowa River but ive nvr fished this area before. is there decent fishing areas in Coralville itself?

im open to fishing anywhere within 30mins of Coravile since ill be in dwntown Coralville. im not after any real particular species. my favorite species to chase in Iowa are your Wipers since we dont have them in MN, and i dont mind tangling with dem Asain carps either.

thanks in advance

Hopefully you read this before hitting the water. crazy

The Coralville Tube is a good place to fish; right now the water level there is very low for this time of year. The walleye spawn is done down here, so that bite should pick up again very soon. The only think about the Tube, and I suspect you already know this, is that you won't have it to yourself.

The white bass/wiper bite should really be going by now, but as I noted on my Iowa River thread it has been slower than normal for me so far this spring, which I suspect has a lot to do with the low water levels.

I know people snag bighead carp below the dam as Burlington Street, but since it is not something I do myself I can't give you any pointers on how or when to do it.

Plenty of ponds in the Coralville area too, if you just want to get out and catch some bluegill or largemouth..
