      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 .

Hi fellow fisherman. I need help finding decent fishing spots from shore or small lake for parents who have a small boat. My mother is a die hard fisher but with her bad back she is limited to short walks. She will have an electric scooter because last one was recently stolen. Where could one find fishing spots in or near plymouth that are handicapped friendly she is very happy catching small fish(sunnies,blue gill etc.) the bigger fish hurt her hands to much. My dad enjoys bass fishing doesn't need to be big ones (he does enjoy the occasional big one)is there such a lake that they could both be happy. They usually release all fish they just enjoy the time out as we all do.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

thanks for help in advance

Look at the DNR web site they list fishing ponds/Kid ponds and most of these are very handicap frendly and the fishing can be quite good. I do not know any info on the ones in your area but around white bear lake there are some of these ponds and have seen nice fish come from them. Again the ones I have been are very handicap frendly with cement fishing decks for wheelchairs. Hope you find something.

I think Lake Independence out by Plymouth has a great fishing pier and a paved path right up to it. Last time I took my niece out there we caught a few crappies in the 9-10" range. That was about 4 years ago now, so I don't know how the fishing is off the pier anymore. Good luck.

I know that there's a ton of little sunnies along the shore of lake Harriet. You can park by the shelter and there's a sidewalk/boardwalk type of thing that you can fish off of. There's some big bass in that lake so hopefully your dad can get one!
