      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 .

Your Favorite Metro Lake?

Recommended Posts

White Bear in late Fall. 3000+ acres, and the recreational traffic is done by that point. Lots of structure, so you can try a few totally different techniques.

I've seen a few big fish out there too.......

Each lake has its peak times and they are at different times of the season. I fish all that were mentioned above, at different times of the year.

White Bear in late summer and fall. St. croix in the late fall. And a few Tiger lakes when I'm to lazy to drive. Opps I almost forgot about French. Some nice options in the metro.

Rebel,

Your right about French. It's not in the metro. I live in Apple Valley. French is about 30 miles from my house, White Bear is 32 miles from my house, Forest is 50 miles, and Waconia is around 35 miles. I'm kind of stuck in the middle.

Porter, I live in apple valley as well and know what it's like to be "stuck in the middle" I just started fishing in this area and I need a little advice. If you have a chance, I'd appreciate it if you could give me your email address, I'd like to ask you a couple questions about a few lakes in our area. My address is mmwaschek@charter.net
