      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 .

Recommended Posts

rollin

want to fish the south end on saturday morning 9/29. Anybody have ideas where to put in on south or east sides. Would rather pay extra to be able to park and not run a ground- 18' alumacraft with 150hp

i do have a state park sticker- father hennepin?

new landing on east side looks nice but shallow and maybe too crowded, any thoughts

thanks

Hunter's, Macs Twin Bay, and the Wharf, all are pay, but are a good launch, and your tuck will be safe.

We launched an 18' Lund at both Hunters Point & Macs with no problems. Both were $10.... cheap insurance knowing you're not going to nail some rocks. Good luck.

Yeah, the public launches on the west side are just downright shallow and dangerous!! The ol Ranger had a hard time at some of the launches last weekend!

What are the best options then for a guy wanting to put in on the west side? Public or pay - either is fine. How's the Garrison landing? How's Casino? If water levels are low I'm sure that one's really bad.

It's up about 5 inches from it's lowest point a month ago, but only a few inches from the level in August.

I'm lookin to launch my 620 but have had troubles with past launches as far as depth. I've heard to stay away from other launches cause of problems (theft, break-ins). Launched from Red Door & Malmo? on the north side. My question is places like Eddy's or Macs Twin Bay launches near the south end, are there drop boxes there if I want to launch late night? I don't suppose there is an attendent on duty at 11:00 at night? Also, how is the security at these launches? thanks in advance...

Went out of south end 2 weeks ago with 18' alumacraft with 150hp and looked at father hennepin but was too shallow to launch. stopped at a small resort just out of isle and was too shallow also. Ended up at walleye dundees and barely made it out. It might be ok with smaller boats. Beware of large pot holes at landing, it makes pulling out a real pain. Landing is uneven.

Esox,

You can put in at Hunters Point Resort. Deeper protected launch and you can pay the access fee in the bar.
