      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 know of two: below lock and dam 4 at Alma, WI and below lock and dam 8 at Genoa, WI. Never fished them but sounds like they produce fish pretty well. The deal is you pay a fee, they haul you out. The ferry stops back at intervals to pick you up. I think they may closed in the winter. Try doing a google for more info.

TRY THE GREAT ALMA FISHING FLOAT.

FISHED THERE YEARS AGO. THEY HAD BAIT, FISH, AND GREAT FOOD.

IF I REMEMBER RIGHT, I THINK JIM OR TIM ARE THE TWO BROTHERS WHO OWN IT.

There are fishing barges in Alma Wi lock 4 another one in Fountain city Wis lock 5a also one at lock 6 Trempalo Wis another at lock 7 Dresback Mn then one at lock 8 Genoa Wis all wich are about the same price $10-$15 dollars a day.Most of them you need to either ring a bell or put a flag up and they come pick you up by boat take you over to the float.One you can drive to and walk down to is in Fountain city Wis lock 5a.I myself have fished on them all each one you can catch fish on and i do believe that most of them are open for fishing by the middle of March or by April first for sure.Hope this helps but im not sure that they all sell bait and food some do some dont been awhile since i fished any of them do to the fact i have a boat now. cool.gif

Fished Alma last spring and summer, didnt do so well... That dam and float seems to be heavily fished at from shore area... Nobody really seemed to catch anything, whenever i was there.

Perhaps the fishs were located more in the middle of the dam rather than towards shore.. I dont know.. The Alma float is not very far from shore.

i fish the alma float a few times a year. its 15 bucks, thats ride, bait, and fun. i personaly think you can get the same or more from the float as in a boat. the thing is you came fish a jig and livebait at the same time. if your set on going try and go in the middle of the week, less people. you can get your fare share of the riches, and the funnest part for me is b.s.ing with everyone. it opens i think by about the 22 of march or so. i would try it once, its fun:)
