      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 .

Waconia or Prior?

Recommended Posts

I just started spearing a little earlier this month, and I've only been out a few times. Still haven't got a fish, but I'm hoping to change that soon. Here's the question, I've got President's Day off from work and I'm wondering if I should spear Waconia or Prior? Any other lakes I should consider? I'm hoping to stay within about an hour of the Cities. Thanks in advance.

Since you're on the West side of town, you might want to try Long Lk near Minnestra (sp?). There's directions in the Get-together thread. Good luck.

Fish Lake by Lydia very dirty we just had our sportsmen club contest on there on sunday, the ice is red since the lake is so murky they said it has a stink to the water earlier. I was on minnewashta last weekend in Chan super clear but not keeps seen 1 pike and some bass but slow, no pannies or anything. Waconia is usally clear, speared that a bunch of times never ran into any ski's, nice lake but usally busy. Prior upper is usally very dirty, I have had much cleaner water on the lower. One year it was scary clear and never seen a fish I think we didn't have enough snow cover to make them comfortable.

I dont think theres musky in there, but when i have been out there in the summer delievering boats, the water out there was so dirty, green and dark, that i dont know how a guy would be able to see there!

Maybe its way different in the winter time, im not sure i have never been out there on the hard water!

Prior doesn't have muskie's that I know of. The Upper prior by spring is usually very dirty, but the lower by like candy cove is usually fairly clean. Well good luck to everyone heading out this weekend
