      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 crappies i fished fountain for the first time a week ago and noticed all the houses seemed too be lined up right on the east shoreline? We went to the outside of them and got in 10' and got a few crappies. What is the rest of the lake like for depth? You got any idea? I might take my boat out there this summer and cruise around with the depthfinder and try to find some midlake humps or something that a guy can ice fish away from the crowds.

the whole lake is basically 8 foot deep there are very few humps in the lake. the deep hole is 14 foot and is near the public access right about where the "no wake zone" ends in the summer.

things change in the winter, you dont catch many crappies in that area in the summer.

go to http://www.dnr.state.mn.us and go to lake finder and type in freeborn county you will see what i mean, the lake is basically the same depth

You would think pulling a shad rap around a guy could find a few walleyes. I would think finding any hump and marking it in my GPS and going back and ice fishing it away from the crowds might be interesting.

the problem is the lack of humps. i believe there are litterally less than 4 on the whole lake. i fish edgewater and along hwy 13 in the summer, but no one is ever out that way in the winter.
