      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 .

Places to go on the 4th

Recommended Posts

JonnyD

I want to take the wife out on the 4th. It will mostly be cruising around looking at houses, and pulling some crankbaits hoping to get lucky. I'm sure the best place would be Minnetonka, but I'm sure it will be a zoo. I don't want to be battling big waves all day from boats flying around, and waiting in line for 30 minutes to launch the boat. How is Minnetonka on the 4th? Is it really crazy or is it tolerable?? My wife isn’t any help launching the boat, and I hate having people behind me wait 5 minutes while I launch the boat myself. Any other suggestions on where to go, or any insight on Minnetonka?? I’m looking for a lake that has some houses to look at for the wife, and still have a chance to hook up with fish while trolling. I live in the northern Suburbs.

Thanks

Try Waconia, not alot of big houses but they are there mostly on the west and south side of the lake, also a bird sancuarty on the island so if she into that... Also the fishing is good, try trolling over the reefs if it walleye your after, musky, pike, and bass can be had around the island. Plus it not going to be crazy like MTKA!!!

Tonka will be insane on the 4th! Fireworks on Excelsior - nuff said. Then take those thousands of boats and bring on the darkness of night. I've been there and done that, not worth it unless you live on the lake or really don't care about getting off the lake around midnight. I'm sure it's the sheriffs patrol's favorite holiday tongue.gif

This might be last minute.... but why don't you hit Forest Lake?? There's some bigger houses here and there, obviously not Minnetonka like, but at least you can fish at the same time, plus there's some finger bays to get into.
