      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 .

Well, tonight I am finally able to do some fishing. I was wondering if anyone could help me out on where could be some good spots to go (from Roch but willing to travel)? I was thinking about trying some trout fishing but I have never really caught any. I have tried many times but can't seem to find any fish. I printed off the trout stream maps off the DNR website and haven't ventured out too much. If anyone would care to give me any direction on where would be a good spot to catch (and release) some trout and also some ideas on what to use for bait (live/artificial). I have a lightweight crappie pole that I plan on using.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Chad

Hey Chad

My honest advice is to pick one of the main streams (Whitewater, Root, Trout Run, etc), find some public land or an easement and do some walking - no one wants to give up 'spots'. My first five or more trout fishing trips were also skunks. If you find some accessable water on one of the streams I listed, eventually it will happen - you will catch some fish. Maybe not tonight but just keep going back. As far as what to use, live or artificial will both work. I don't want to start this topic again but catch and release with worms gets a little dicey. Plus, if you are planning on using live bait, make sure it is allowed on the stretch of stream you pick. Usually it is posted but I would check the book or the DNR website before you go. If you want to use artificials, I would recommend size 0 or 1 mepps spinners or a small to medium sized floating rapala. Like I said, some night it will happen - good luck!!

Keep your chin up it will happen sooner or later. The best advice I can give you is if you think you have walked far enough walk a little further. It's always better around the next bend!! shocked.gif Good Luck!

Well....here's my report....I didn't get to go fishing. I ended up having the chance to get my boys yesterday so I decided to spend the evening with them. So, I changed my schedule and plan on going out Wednesday now. Thanks for wondering though. I will let you know how it goes and if I catch anything, I will post some pictures.

ok...I was able to go fishing a bit yesterday...4 solid hours of walking, hiking, wading, casting...and still no fish. I decided to go to a new place (Logan Creek); the water was very cold and I thought that it was great conditions for some trout, but they didn't think so. I saw very few fish and the ones that I did see were small. I guess I will just have to keep trying.
