      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 .

what is your favorite kind of body of water to fish?lake, stream, river, big river(miss, st croix, that kinda thing), ocean, etc. Mine is rivers, like the rum grin.gif. i dont know how to put it but theres somethin bout them that i love, they have more character than lakes. i love tubing down the rum and fishing, smallies seem to put an even bigger fight on when you are on a tube. i also think that its just fun to tube and do those kinds of things down river, whether you are fishing or not.

I can't give you a favorite. One of my favorite things to do is open water trolling on big lakes like Mille Lacs or Erie, but that's not the only way I want to fish. Besides big lakes I also fish small and medium lakes, resevoirs, rivers, and occasionally the ocean. I like them all grin.gif

Flowages and reservoirs, they hold a lot of fish of a wide variety of species without the navigational hazard of rivers. That or lakes with larger rivers and streams flowing in and out. They just hold more fish than other lakes.

My favorite is a lake that has been flooded and there is timber and weedlines present. You just can't beat casting cranks in these conditions!

Mid sized river hands down.

A close second are the clear deep rocky lakes of the North.

I like clear, deep lakes that hold good numbers of fish and don't have any recreational boaters on it. Thats just me...

I like small, clear, shallow lakes. Or at least clear lakes with shallow structure. My favorite all time lake is in Canada, where you can sight fish for bass up to 15 yards away in like 6 feet of water.

I'm with grousehunter. Small rivers with waders going slow and steady enjoying the surroundings. Catch tons of fish, I've never seen a bear or wolf though!

Medium to small sized lakes with lots of structure with a well-established weedline and lots of shallow cover as well.

Man, I'm in heaven.

Hurry up and melt, dang it....

Lakes with rocks and islands and reefs! Lakes like rainy, vermillion rule. I would like it better with less recreational boaters and jet skis, but a few arent bad. I could also go with the Lac Suel vote!

Small to medium sized rivers have always had a place in my heart. I especially like the idea that you can catch so many different kinds of fish. Many of these rivers have very little pressure on them, which provides the angler some great solitude as well.

Around here; small canadian shield type lakes, and big lakes with lots of islands (lotw, canadian side type). Alaska glacial rivers are fantastic, and over the last few years i've spent a lot of time on the ocean. Blue water trolling is a world of it's own. You never know what might pop up out there, a 12 foot ray, whales, maybe a school of spinner dolphin 1/2 a mile wide with 100 lb. tuna jumping with them! It's so far removed from anything I grew up doing in MN, but every time I get back I'm already planning a return trip:)

I love fishing lakes with deep cabbage beds. There are always fish in deep cabbage. I also love fishing underwater points.

Smaller rivers with smallies in are awesome. I also love to fish small natural lakes either with my smaller bass boat or get into ones without access in my canoe.

As long as I can get a boat on it and there are fish in it, it is my favorite with only one qualification - I hate water that is extremely dirty - either by mud or algae bloom. Don't like fishing in pea soup...

Love the Rum, love Tonka and Gull, love Koronis, love Coon, love the ole Miss too.
