      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!!!

Davenport Area Fishing

Recommended Posts

I am an avid fisherman from northern Minnesota and have been spoiled with all the area lakes. I just took a job as a teacher and track coach at Durant High School, I am new to the area don’t know where to start looking for fish. I would appreciate any fishing spots in the area and species to fish for.

Thanks for all the help

I am from North Central Iowa so I can't help you out on specifics on lakes in that area, but I think McBride and Coralville are somewhat close, but then again I really don't know where Durant is exactly, I think west of the Quad Cities. If so, you do have the ol' Mississippi.

Your first stop as you cross the border is to stop at WalMart and buy the Sportsmans Atlas. It has in it all the Public hunting area and parks owned by the DNR and the County Conservation Boards. In the park descriptions it will tell you if there is fishing. The secind item you need to buy there is a book on the lake maps in the state of Iowa. I don't know if you can buy it at Cabelas or not. The third spot is to go to the Iowa DNR HSOforum and they have most lake maps on the HSOforum as well as info about the lake.

Hope this helps.
