      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 .

Launching from the Road

Recommended Posts

I've got one and love it. I'm planning a little trip and have been trying to do a little map scouting just to make the best use of my time.

I've noticed that some lake show boat launches. I've also noticed that most of the smaller lakes/marshes do not show boat launches on the map. If I find a lake that I like that has a road that goes right next to it, can I go ahead and launch my boat and park right there on the side of the road? Do some lakes have launches that aren't on the map?

I don't want to get yelled at by the local residents but would assume that this is alright to do. Has anyone done this and is it that big of a deal? Thanks.

Asked that question of a warden on opener. He was very vague and said it depended on if it was a township or county road. I was always under the impression if the water abutted the road right of way it was legal. If I were you I would call the dnr main office to find out for sure.

Best is to find the property owner and ask. Most people will help you out. However, if you want to go the road route, the key is road right of way which does vary between state, county, and township roads. If it indeed does abut, then you can legally float it. Parking is another issue though, as well as the ground under the water.
