      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 .

I watched a guy tipup fish where the creek that runs behind silver lake pool meets the zumbro. He had one in the mouth of the channel and one along the bank. He had two northerns on the ice. The one looked nice sized. Watch the ice over there. He said it gets real unstable fast.

No it was two three years ago. But I caught 3 northerns last spring on the creek that runs behind silver lake pool. They will swim up that stream in the spring at first ice out. I interned one year with the park and rec. I worked around Silver lake alot. So I picked up a few hot spots. Plus in front of the fire hall is really good. If you want to catch some huge white crappies east side of the walking bridge by the fire hall. cast out to the first support beam, there was some brush around it. Me and my buddy hit that four five times when fishing was slow. We caught alot of 10inchers. I was told of all sorts of holes. Plus what i,ve seen caught out of that lake. I seen a kid catch a 16 inch and 12 inch waleye below the dam. Seen guys catch catfish down there also. Theres is tons of fish around there it is a fun place to fish.

I have fished quite a bit below the dam and have done some carp fishing above the dam in the lake. But have never targeted the pike out there.

Yup sounds right you got to hit that creek at ice out the northern are all over in there. But they are not agressive at all you have to hit them in the nose to get them to bite. Seems weird catching northerns there but heck I've caught northerns out by Hayfeild, Simpson, and Rock Dell. So why not there.

I broke my voicebox yelling for joy when the Giants finally made that last field goal. I'll be hoarse tomorrow!

Let's hope little Bertie Favre retires and his last-ever play from scrimmage was the interception that cost them a Super Bowl berth.

Now we have to listen to months of him toying with people over whether he'll retire or not.

As to the thread topic, I thought the sewage plant was up by 37th St NW. Is there another one closer to Silver Lake that I'm not aware of??

Well I would have figured the sewage statement to be true if you where talking about lake zumbro plenty of sewage has flowed threw that channel.
