      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 .

Lake Belva Deer Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

Lake Belva Deer (Keokuk): The warmer weather has started to bring the anglers out but they have not been having much luck. Construction is continuing on the road into the campground or South end of the park. The Lake can be accessed from the north boat ramp or from the park road from the dam past the cabins.

Lake Geode (Henry): More anglers are starting to come out again as the weather starts to warm up. Look for the fish to move into the shallows on the warm afternoons.

Bluegill - Good: While they are not nesting yet, they are in shallow to take advantage of the abundant insects attracted to the warmer water. The water remains clear and the fish are very spooky. Largemouth bass - Good: Anglers are seeing some of the bass starting to set up territories in the shallow waters. Crappie - Good: Anglers are still catching some nice crappies in the spawning areas in the flooded timber.

Most areas of the lake have 6+ inches of ice. Concentrate your efforts in the flooded timber around the old creek channel. The county plans on sanding the hill down to the ramp.

Look for the water to cloud back up with the rain.

Bluegill fishing has been good. Anglers are fishing in the flooded timber out by the creek channel.

Crappie fishing has been good as well. Fish the same areas as for bluegills. Look about 2 to 3 feet off the bottom.
