      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 .

Good Fishing Pier in the NW Metro

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I had to sell my boat last spring, and my son really wants to go fishing. Anyone know of any good lakes in the NW metro or up near Zimmerman, Elk River, Monticello Area for a good shore fishing spot?

Man I have to buy a boat again....ahhhhh

what were you looking at going after? I can give you a couple good spots on the mississippi in monticello for cats and smallies, are you can even get gills if you target them. I don't know if you want your son next to a river (age?) but the water is pretty low and slow this time of year. Theres a fishing pier at west bridge park. and at montissippi park. otherwise if you want to email me I can give you a couple more off the path places, I hate to see a child miss out on the fun of fishing. cyrillic27@hotmail.com Brad

Hey Swill, sorry to hear about the sale of your boat. Check the Open Seats forum in the metro section. I take people out all the time. My email can be found in there as well and there are a lot of others that take people out too. Sorry, not sure on the pears in that section, I know there was a decent one up on Chisago.

thanks for the replies. Never heard of open seat. My son is 6, and I think I am going to try that pier at west bridge park.

Can't wait for ice fishing, that is when I always get out a lot, and it will be easy to take my son.

Your favorite metro lake probably has a pier. Statewide Fishing Piers We're about to experience some of the better shallow water fishing of the year as temperatures drop. Take your son out to a pier and let him try hanging some bait under a bobber while you do some casting...lots of active aggressive fish and we're getting very close to the fall turnover. We've had a few of the right conditions (cool nights and windy days) so it may come quickly.

Good luck

Have you tried the pier, or shore fishing, at Big Lake? Or shore fishing on Lake Mitchell on the north side of Big Lake?

those two spots have a ton of fish to keep young ones interested, and yet there are some nice fish to be caught by "the big kids" as well!
