      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 .

Construction On Hwy 8 Taylor Falls?

Recommended Posts

catchin'whopper

I was wondering what people know about supposedly some construction on Highway 8 going on in Taylor Falls? I am planning to head out to Balsam Lake and I was told that it might be closed. Any idea if it is, and if so what would the best way to cross over to get to this lake? It is just East on 8 about 5-10 miles or so, in Wisconsin.

(also, if anyone can provide any hints on fishing for tomorrow there, i have a post in the Wisconsin forum, thanks! I know there was some of you bass tourney fishermen there last weekend!)

Thanks for your help, i figured this was the best place to put this since i am driving from the west metro.

I route I go Is just take 35 north to Hwy 95 to 97 and when you come to the hwy 243 which would be the Oceloa (i dont know if I spelled it right)exit and just follow it to the Wisconsin 35 and follow that north right into St Croix Falls and you can go from there.

Hope that Info helps

I shot over to a lake in Wisconsin on sunday and encountered no problems on Hwy 8. Maybe they weren't working on that day but I really didn't notice much construction going on around taylors falls.

catchn,

Looked like they were done on Sunday. Wow, what a difference a little pavement makes. That might have been one of the worst stretches of road (going down the hill) in the state to be trailering a boat. Everytime I drove it, I cringed at the site of my trailer tires leaving the ground.

If the weather warms up, look shallow for bass bass. If not, fish the flats with slow-rolled spinner baits, Rat-L Traps, and cranks.

Another bait I stuck quite a few bass on over the weekend was a Super-Do from Catch-N Tackle. Keep that in mind for the rest of the year if you don't have your hands on them yet.
