      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

Does anyone know if the flood damage to the Crystal Spring's fish hatchey will impact the stocking on Foster's this winter? Just curious... Any info would be appreciated.

PS...I just drove by the lake and it is still WIDE open. Bummer. Hopefully it will lock up soon.

I'm not sure.

Nate- Lets hit up Foster's together when we get good ice. It'd be nice to have someone there for safety reasons, and also as you know I need somebody to pick up my gear for me too. grin.gif

Just an update on the regulations at Foster as some questions have been raised in other threads.

This information is from the MN DNR.

FOSTER AREND LAKE (Olmsted County) trout: Continuous season. Possession limit three with One over 16".

-A valid MN trout stamp is required to possess trout

-2 lines are allowed for angling through the ice

-Live bait is allowed

As sportsmen/sportswomen, we need to help educate anglers this winter who may be unaware of the regulations. Some people believe you can keep 5 trout, similar to the stream regulations. Others ignore the 1 fish over 16" restriction. By letting people know what the rules are, many more people can enjoy the fishery.

As a side note, bring your camera so when you land a big one you can take a quick photo and dump it back down the hole.

Good fishing and be safe on the ice!

So what are the regulations about keeping fish?

"some people believe...." implies that the truth is somewhat different. Yeah, I could go to the dnr web site and read the regs but reading is hard.

Ok since I fish foster 3 to 5 days a week I can tell you that so far that stocking has not been hampered.The first stocking happened toward the end of sept. It included quite a few large rainbows over 20 inches.Then the last stocking happened just before Thanksgiving and they released a bunch of brood stock Browns.I have caught 4 ,but all were on artificials.The stocking has been better than ever.So hats off to our friends at the hatchery.This is a wonderful thing we have here in Rochester. I am not one to usually fish with lures,but seeing big browns hit a top water bait is exciting,even when they miss.

I think that will depend on the goose situation.

More geese=more open water.
