      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 .

I am going to be going fishing this weekend with some friends and family, and they have said they would like to go to either of the two lakes. Is there any thing going on them? We will be mostly fishing for sunfish and crappies.

Any info would be greatly appreicated

I have had better luck on Osakis for the bigger gills.

They are there, the hard part is finding the bigger pods of nice sized fish.

Good Luck!

On Osakis the bigger sunfish bite the best at sunrise until 10:00am on the rockpiles on the north end in 12'-28' of water. wink.gif

Good Luck

Villard just had the road redone for Co Rd 28 which goes right past the landing. It looks like they have some sort of yellow ribbon blocking off access to the landing so I'm not sure if it's even open to the public.

Great! crazy.gif I have reservations on Villard this weekend and their launch isn't exactly usable the last I checked.

If your staying at Canary Beach, don't worry. They have the old ramp open there. It's nothing fancy, but better than the City ramp has been the last couple years. I was told the DNR is putting in a new ramp on Villard when the highway is done. Actually, we did most of our fishing on Leven the first part of August, we had better luck over there.

Yes we are staying at Canary Beach. Last year they told us to use the city ramp, not the resort ramp. Yeah we usually end up fishing Leven more too. Do you know if a 16' aluminum boat would be able to get through from Villard to Amelia with the low water?

Yes, last year they pretty much had the resort ramp closed off, but with the city ramp closed down, they opened their ramp up again. As far as going from Villard to Amelia, my Lund Laker wouldn't make it, but my brother made it through with one of the resort boats. I guess it depends on the width of your boat, but if it's about 70 inches or better, I doubt you'll make it.
