      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 .

Has anyone been by Poinsett Lately? I am curious if the heavy rains have helped the water levels at all. I drove by two weeks ago and water was coming in from dry, but very little coming in from Albert.

I'd like to see this lake back to normal some day!

Father-in-law was by poinsett today. Water is still coming in from both places. He said the outlet from Albert is running pretty slow yet because of all the weeds in the outlet.

The water is up some he said. He said all the lakes(albert, Mary, John)around Pionsett are full, so it should keep running into Pionsett for awhile yet.

I would like to see it full again myself. Makes launching the boat alot easier.

I have talked to a few people lately that say it's completely full. Not sure if this is rumor or not. Has anyone been by first hand?

Been there the past two weekends and I would say water levels are pretty normal. Easy to launch a boat at prestrudes it's certainly not full like 97 or 01 but good water levels. It's gotta be up 18-24+ inches from last year. You can float over the rocks by prestrudes point close to shore. Last year some of those were out of the water. The water level is probably similar to 2002-2003 from what I remember in my brookings days.

I was out on Poinsett Sunday and I saw a flash of 16ft on the graph for the first time in years! It was great to see.

Evidently, the lake still has a solid white bass population.

Man i wish i could see that lake again. My grandparents had a cabin on the south side of the lake, and i spend most of my childhood fishing. I think if memory serves me they were east of mudsons resort like 3 cabins or so. You all are bringing back some of the best times of my life. I remember when crappie fishing was as easy as just sitting there watching them jump out of the water. Oh well good luck someday i will get up there to see it all again.

Kind regards,
