      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 .

Bow Fishing

Recommended Posts

I think i'm gonna rig my bow for fishing next year. This will be the first time i'v ever bow fished so i have some questions.

Is there a special license? What species can u shoot? I live near Rochester so where is someplace close? I saw someone bow fishing under the bridge at the silver lake dam; is that legal?

I am clueless so i have a ton more questions but these are a good start.

No special licence other than fishing licence. You are pretty much limited to rough fish carp, suckers etc. You will just have to look in rule book. If you hunt with your bow you may just want a really cheap bow for strictly fishing.

correct! just need fishing license. can shot any rough fish: carp, suckers, sheephead(if you can hit them). must be outside of any city limits (just like hunting). best time is when carp are spawning (end of may begining of june).

The spawn is alright, but my favorite time is right at opener, early May. Get out there before the milfoild comes up and scour the bank near cattails. Doesn't get any better.

Do a search for land of lakes bowfishing association. I guarantee you will get all the answers you want. And I will bet there will be many locals near you that would be happy to take you along for some great shooting. You will learn everything you need to know there.
