      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 .

Monson Lake (+ state park)

Recommended Posts

We're heading out to Monson (Contact Us Please) Park this weekend. What info on Monson Lake is out there? I can print off a map from the DNR's lake finder, and I see they've even stocked some wally's too.

I'm just looking for tips or anything about the lake.

Take the camp site NW corner of campground Rd.You can pull your boat on shore there 20-30 Yds.down small incline on a trail.Fish south and east sides of the point right there,a good drop,that camp site is also closest to showers,I havent fished there this year,but sunnies are plentiful small,other types are hard to come by(for me anyway) GOOD LUCK!! Its a GREAT camp ground very few people in comparison to other state parks. cool.gif

Thanks for the info!

Is there a good online map (free) of the lake other than the 40 year old maps on the DNR's lakefinder? (the lake has since gotten 5 feet deeper and now has an island..

I have never fished it in the summer. In the winter i fish off the point and the SW corner of the Island for Panfish. I know a friend of mine likes to go out there for some bass fishing. I have never caught anything besides perch and panfish myself.....not even by accident.

Here's the DNR Lake Finder, just type in Monson and Swift Co. There's a PDF and TIFF version under maps and all the fishery info under lake info.

I also emailed you an "updated" version I just did with the supposed new depths (5' is now 10' and so on) and new island.

We had a great time that weekend, even in the constant rain! We didn't have much luck out on the lake, just a single crappie down deep. The state park was great, very quiet, only 2 other occupied sites!

Thanks again for the tips!
