      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 .

I am going to be down at the Zoo this Saturday for a b-day party and I was thinkin to try fishing before the party starts. I know there is a lake called Como but is that in that area (stupid question I am sure)?? Are there any other lakes in that general area that I could fish from shore?? Any info is appreciated.

Como lake is just a few blocks east of Como Zoo.

From Como Zoo go east on Horton Ave. cross Lexington Ave and you'll run right into the lake. Its only a few blocks.

Take a look at google maps, just put in the como zoo address and you'll see the lake on the map.

If you go along the south shore of the lake you will come across a fishing pier on the south east corner that you can fish from or you can go along the north shore of the lake and find some more shore spots.

I haven't fished it but I know you can get into some small gills, and maybe a hammer handle pike or two.

There are loads bullheads and tiny crappie in there and I know it has a few channel cats too. I haven't fished it, but I drive by it everyday. Pretty much the entire lake is SERIOUSLY weedy. Weedy to the point that fishing from shore or that pier on the south end will be difficult.

Thanks for the info guys, looks like I am going straight to the b-day party. Doesn't sound like you can fish around that lake, but I will see about the fishing pier.
