      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 .

Can someone tell me a good launch area above the taylors falls dam? I'm thinking of heading up there to chase some smallies this upcoming weekend. Thanks!

And it's in great shape despite the low water levels.

Hey guys,

I got out to the river yesterday for my first time ever. We launched from lions park. I've been missing out, its gorgeous up there! My buddy and I caught a couple decent smallies and lots of littler ones. The biggest one was 2lbs 12oz. I have one question... Is there a better population of smallmouth if you run up river a ways? or is it better down by the dam and just above lions park launch. We didn't run up river terribly far and I'm just wondering if we should have or not. Any insight woulg be great, Thanks!

I go upstream a little ways just because it always seems that there's tubers down by the park access. There's always boats upstream too, especially the cruser cabins and pontooners. But most of them are very respectful towards fishermen and keep their distance, especially those local pontooners.

The lower stretch has got some decent habitat that's often overlooked. Lots of stumps, which is obvious. But there's also a couple decent breaks that hold fish. The "upper" river up to the state park access/Nevers area acts more like a typical river. There's a little more current, a couple of decent breaks, but I'd say fewer stumps. There is also an old anchor of mine in the upper section that may be holding fish, too. But that's another story entirely; all I'll just say that I may be related to Bill Dance somehow. blush.gif

LOL We found an anchor on the turle hole near franconia. Fishing was all right as well. We caught a bunch of smallies and a couple of walleyes, no cats though or turtles.
