      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 .

Hey I noticed in the "Lake Elmo" post that people were talking about weird no parking rules. Does anyone know if there are any rules like that fo Square Lake? Is it just like the summer where you can buy a pass for the day?

Has anyone been out there? How's the fishing in the winter?

Not sure about how the fishing has been this winter on Square, but the roads get plowed to the launch so access to the lake should be ok, unlike Lake Elmo. Parking fees do apply at both parks, year-round. You can still access Lake Elmo from the park, but it's a hike from the nearest plowed parking lot...and you get yelled at if you use the ski trails. Lots of folks access the lake from a private property on the southeast corner of the lake...I think that resident charges a fee for access, but the walk to the lake is shorter.

They plow right down to the landing at Square lake - Elmo and Square are both Washington County Parks but the property owners on Square must not think that they own the lake.

phishead,

actually, square residents are equally protective of "their" lake...the guy with the plow truck,tho, fishes square not elmo. I think the actual policy of WC Parks is not to snow plow to any lake access (liability reasons)...square was grandfathered in, so to speak.

I could be wrong but I think I remember hearing that the residents on Square wanted the dnr to quit stocking trout because they thought it was the reason the water was losing it's clarity. Turns out that it was salt from the roads getting into the lake. I just called lake Elmo to see if you can park by the access this year and she told me it wasn't plowed. O

All I know is a couple of years back, I got a ticket for not paying during ice fishing...If you can make it to the landing and park down there it is ok, but if you stay in the lot, you gotta pay, unlike other pay lots that close in the winter. And they patrol quite regularly.

Yeah - you have to pay in the honor box. My buddy and I got a ticket at Square a few years ago - we paid but didn't display the reciept properly. It must have flipped upside down from the wind when we opened the door -- oops!
