      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 .

The Ford Dam

Recommended Posts

Had an awesome day fishing down at the Ford dam. Another angler actually saw that I had walked upstream pretty far and he decided to give me a ride back in his boat, had a great time and ended getting into some crappie and bass. Awesome that there are people out there willing to do that, very rarely I'm able to fish from a boat!

I've spent A LOT of time down there and made that same walk countless times.  Ankle breaker is about the best description you can apply to that walk.  I've actually never done real well that far down from shore.  The creek mouth has always been much better for me.

 

My best presentation has been a jig and minnow or jig and some sort of plastic swim bait.  White or gold have been the best colors.  The live minnows produced more fish but all the biggest fish have come on plastics.  In the spring I've also done real well on white bass, they'll hit anything white.  If you can hit them on the right day it can be constant action.

 

Nice of them to give you the ride back, I have never been so lucky although I have met a lot of cool fisherman down there.  In the spring there used to be a group of regulars that I'd get to know fairly well.  Haven't been done much since having kids but I've caught a ton of fish from that area with plenty of 25+ inch walleye and probably 10+ different species of fish.
