      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!!!

Vermillion River

Recommended Posts

Gave the vermillion river a try for the 1st time ever today. I stopped at several access points along county road 66, didn't bother checking out rambling river park. I don't know whether it was high or low, or what, but it was running fairly muddy. The brush and prairie grass was pretty thick, and tough to get through. Didn't catch anything, but lost what would have easily been the biggest brown trout I've ever caught!  Was casting a minnow rap when he casually hit the lure, and I got a terrible hook set on him. Lost him after just a few seconds. Looked to be about 24 inches or so. Will definitely give this place another try, but might be better earlier in the season before the brush gets too thick. Worked up quite a sweat hiking through all that stuff in hip boots. Does anyone know if the rainbows the DNR stock stick around the rambling river park area and get fished out quickly, or do they roam around downstream and holdover at all?

They travel the system, even go up into some smaller creeks in the Lakeville.  The Browns are much more sensitive to water temps and I heard a while back that the Browns are on their way out due to the distribution of cold ground water.  Not sure if its true or not but it explains the decline in quality Browns.  Get back out there soon!
