      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 .

Stillwater Area?

Recommended Posts

Well I was wondering if anyone knows of some good slab and pannie lakes aroung this area. My parents said that they would be willing to drive about 20-30minutes to get me somewhere.

Any info on where to go would be greatly appreciated and I will post pictures of what I get out there.

Thanks!!

Jordyn,

I don't think you'll find too many people ready to open their mouths or keyboards to give you their "slab" panfish lakes, but if you are willing to pull out a map and try some new spots you might find a few nice lakes. I have some favorites in Washington and Chisago counties...Spend some time looking at a map, getting away from population centers, hitting small bodies of water, pre-scouting lakes and structure on those lakes, and you may find success.

Sometimes it's all the more sweeter to do-it-yourself. Good luck.

Thanks dachise.

My friends grandma has a private lake filled with hand sized sunnies near my house. I am going to go there whenever he does but he only goes there once a week and i want to get out more than that. I have looked on the DNR compass thing and have found 1 or 2 lakes that might produce some ok pannies. I have jsut never ice fished before and I am just really unsure of where to go nd what to use. I was hoping that there is a metro GTG or someone to go with on a metro lake near Stillwater so I can get the hang of ice fishing and get some good tips. And I have no idea where to start when I get onto a lake. I'm not sure what to look for or where to go...

Should I just pop a few holes in the ice and stick my vex down it or what??

Thanks,

Kauf
