      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 .

Go to the DNR website and check out the lake, or pick up a lake map of Spring. It has some very interesting structure.

ya i have fished the lake alot and have some great spots to try out there. i know it is about 1 foot by the access and about 1-3 ft all around there. was just wondering if that whole shoreline is like that all the way to the point or is there a better drop off at some point - i am looking for 4-6 ft say about 50 yrds from shore. anyone been around where i am talking about? anyone live on the lake?

mtreno, I fish the lake a lot and it is really shallow until you get about half way to the point, but that doesn't mean you cant catch fish. have caught plenty of bass and sunfish in 1-2 feet of water along that shore in spring. Down towards the point it is about 4 feet at the end of the docks. good luck.

go to the other end of the lake for shore fishing - it's deeper.

ok my general question is not getting the anwser i am looking for. ok, going to let the cat out of the bag here but if you know me, dont say anything to the lady - i am looking at buying a home on spring lake. the house i am interested in is more than half way from the access to the point - maybe closer to 3/4. i have never boated closer to shore there and was looking for someone who had. the realtor told me at the end of my dock it will be about 3 ft. thought i would check in with fm here and see if anyone could verify that.

That sounds about right depending how long the dock is. if the water is low it is 3 ft. I wish i could live on the lake good luck.
