      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 .

Pike on Crystal or Orchard Lake?

I'm taking my girlfriends dad out fishing next Tuesday. He wants to get into some pike action so I was wondering if orchard or crystal would be good lakes to go for them. If not, what lakes would be the best for numbers of pike in the southern metro.

Welcome to FishingMinnesota.

I used to live in Lakeville and if we wanted pike we went to Lake Marion. Fish the northern half of the lake where it's shallow (not down on the southern end by Antlers Park), right out in front of the boat launch was a popular spot. Been quite a while since I was there but I assume it's still good.

Well, I decided we're goin to Orchard. After looking at the lake map, thought about setting up a few tip ups around the hump on the lake and then maybe a few shallower just to the south of it. Are these good places to start looking for pike. Any help would be greatly appreciated! If you don't want to post it on here you can e-mail me at toby.hovelsrud@mnsu.edu

TobyHovelsrud - I'm wondering if you had any luck. I'm looking to bring a buddy there this weekend who's coming from out of state, and the family he's visiting is right in that area so it would be a convenient place to go. I'm not looking for any specifics, just if you had any luck. Thanks.

Well for our group we had 6 tip ups out and didn't get a bite from 9:30 to 12 in the morning so we packed it in and went to Marion. We had three flags go up there so all in all not a very productive day of fishing but it beats going to school!
