      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 .

Minnetonka, and Waconia are excellent, just not on the weekends because of pleasure boaters.

I see your in Roch though? Ever fish the Faribault chain of lakes? Little bit closer for you.

Just fish the deep weed edges especially the ones marked by buoys and you should do OK. Stop in at either Minnetonka Outdoors on Hwy 7 or Wayzata Bait just off Hwy 12 and they can give you some up to date info as well as bait. Gray's Bay has the best ramp followed by Maxwell and North Arm.

I like Waconia over minnetonka - less big boats, but if your looking for a quiet lake with lots of bass and pike try Lake Auburn just north of Victoria - go through Victoria and turn right at the Dairy Queen and its the second left onto a dirt road the launch it a little rough but the lake had produced alot of nice fish for me in th past! Check out Cabin Feaver in Vict. for bait and lots of good advice - good luck

I'd head up to clearwater. Not as much boating traffic and tremendous bass and walleye fishing

The lakes listed above are very good, but big. If you're looking for smaller water, there are plenty of sub-200 acre lakes in the area. Just check out a map, then check out the dnr site for reports. I like small water myself, and I love the southwest metro lakes.
