      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 .

Fishing below Lock #2

Recommended Posts

Dale Rueber

Does anybody fish below lock #2 down to Prescott? I have seen very few fishing boats in this area. Seems like there would be many opportunities around the dam for good fishing but I may be wrong.

I have gone up below the dam in the fall for walleyes. Sometimes you can do real well.

That is actually pool 3....most people fish from Prescott south because that is where the majority of the wing dams start. I think there is only two that are above that point.

We have hammered the walleyes there before the season closes if the water is open at the landing. That portion of the river (the dam to Prescott) closes when inland waters close.

Thanks, I don't want to overlook any areas that might be productive just because I have not seen anybody else fishing there.

The main benefit I see to fishing below Prescott is that you can have 2 lines. This is not the case from Lock #2 down to Prescott.

Oh yeah, that is one of the best areas to fish on the river... Lots of whitebass, kitties, drums, walleyes, saugers, you name it, it's there...

Just because you dont see anybody fishing it doesnt mean there arent any good fish there.... Go with your instincts... Dont follow the crowds.
