      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 .

Bowfishing In MN

Recommended Posts

I just started last year and what I did is go on lake finder and look up lakes with a high population of carp in them and also look at water clarities. Don't bother going to a muddy lake. Most lakes are all clear in the spring but nud up as the summer goes on. Also make sure to call your local DNR officer and make sure it's legal on the lake you choose. They can be kind of fussy with that stuff. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Well, I do know some lakes with a lot of carp, but just wanted to see if people know a place that has shallow areas with carp constantly roaming around. Well, hope someone can help me out. THANKS!

Spring is probably the best time to bowfish. Check any creeks near you that are connected to lakes or rivers come spring. Once carp run into creeks they are easy pickings. Most lakes in your area would offer good shooting from a boat, but you need to check city ordinaces to see if you can discharge a bow in town. Calm mornings are usually good for finding carp up shallow in bays. I shoot a lot of south metro and southern MN lakes and rivers. Our group of arrow slingers would be happy to take you out some if you want to drive down some day next spring.
