      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 .

COON LAKE ONLY ABOUT 20 MINUTES AWAY . NOT SURE HOW OLD YOUR KIDS ARE BUT TIP UP FISHING IS VERY PRODUCTIVE AND SHOULD KEEP THEM BUSY. OR CROOKED LAKE ONLY ABOUT 5-10 MIN AWAY FROM ANOKA. OR IF YOUR KIDS ARE REALLY YOUNG ROUND LAKE IN COON RAPIDS/ANDOVER HAS TONS OF SUNFISH IN IT JUST GO OUT TO MIDDLE YOU WILL FIND THEM. GOOD LUCK AND WELCOME TO THE AREA.

You could try peltier or centerville. I fish peltier a lot and there are tons of crappies in there some of decent size and some nice sunfish also.

Hope this helps

I'm also new to Andover and got out for the first time last weekend. Crooked lake is 5 mins. away and is easy to get on and small enough to fish the entire lake. It produced consistent small gils (fun for kids) and 1 nice largemouth. I also fished Coon 10 mins. away, which is a MUCH larger lake and produced, once again, small gils and an 18 inch snake. Ice is wierd with a good 7" and slush/snow on top. Coon seems to be a little more crowded, but was worth the drive.

I used the public boat launch off of Bunker Lake Blvd. on the North end and walked directly South; no problems. There is also a park on the East side off of Crooked Lake Blvd. where you can park and drag onto the South end of the lake. I walked, no atv.
