      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 .

Has anyone been to Shields lake lately? What I was wondering is how shallow the lake is mostly if you can even get your boat into the water as the landing usually is shallow?

I have a friend who has a twenty foot deck boat that fished Shields last week. He never mentioned trouble at the access...

Last year it was an issue, I guess one of the bass tournaments had to cancel because of shallow access, but when I went over there this year the guy at the baitshop said they did something with the dam which raised the water levels. ?? L2f

I would be real careful out on sheilds there are a few humps behind crane island that without a doubt will wreck your boat none of them are marked either arm your self with a map off the lake finder website and get familar with thier

location b4 navigating these waters and i would be willing to bet thatr acsess is horrible at this time i can tell you

that because I know from past experiance one other thing I had heard that that dammed up the outlet in order to bring the water level up so that may help
