      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 .

Northwest & Southwest Anderson Lakes being drained?

Recommended Posts

fisherman-andy

I've had always wanted to try fishing them lakes but now I hear on the news they are being drained or going to be drained for control of curly leaf pond weed.

I dont know if the Anderson lakes contain any gamefish but am going to assume probably Crappies/Panfish & Bass? And or likely Bullheads.

Anderson is a good or used to be a good crappie lake. Fished that lake alot both spring fall and winter. It does not get very deep max about 13 ft. It really does get choked out with weeds later in the year. They will drain this fall and hopefully by nature is how they are going to fill it back up. Then restock with panfish and in a couple of years, who knows.

Just an FYI I have caught and released a 16" crappie out of there, 2 years ago in the spring from shore.

I fished on two of the Anderson Lakes this last winter with marginal success. I had dead fish coming up the holes on the lake just east of 169 on late ice this year. A homeowner told me that there was a massive winterkill in the winter of '07 with bajillions of dead crappies on the shore in the spring. So the drawdowns definitely aren't going to wipe out any great fisheries....

Hopefully they can dredge it out a little bit creating better habitat and depth to prevent that from happening. 3 or 4 years ago it was HOT action with quality.
