      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 .

How could zebra mussels get into Vadnais?

Recommended Posts

We've all heard about the zebra mussels getting into Vadnais...

HOW? They don't allow boats, canoes, or even waders! What the heck?

I'd expect Minnetonka or White Bear or some other hugely crowded lake. Totally mystery to me.

The St. Paul water utility pumps water in from the Mississippi to Pleasant Lake which is connected to Sucker Lake which is connected to Vadnais. Don't let anyone fool you into thinking that they came in any other way. The Mississippi River and it's back waters near Brainerd are chock full of zebra mussles.

Tornado did it. It must have picked them up out of Lake Superior, held them in the atmosphere and dropped them in that lake. I am convinced that the DNR and City would never take a chance on damaging their water supply/equipment and frankly, I am shocked that anyone would imply that they would do so. Local governments are just too smart to let something like this happen. grin.gif

Did anyone write St. Paul a invasive species ticket?

Perhaps we could put the city under citizen's arrest? grin.gif

WEll, even if water was pumped in from Mississippi river. I dont think it is possible that the pump would transport Zebra Mussels to Vadnais lake...

Perhaps an unthoughtful person put it in that lake. You just never know.... I always wondered how did Milfoil get into Vadnais as well...

THE SMALL ZEBRAS ARE MICROSCOPIC. IF THAT PUMP CAN PULL ANY KIND OF ALGAE, ITS IS A NO BRAINER THAT IT CAN PULL YOUNG ZEBRAS AS WELL. WHEN YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT PUMPS THAT ARE IN THE HUNDREDS OF HORSE POWER WITH HUGE PIPES AND IMPELLERS, IT IS POSSIBLE TO PULL LOTS OF STUFF THROUGH THAT SYSTEM.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
