      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 .

Harriet or Nokomis

Recommended Posts

If this rain ever stops I am going fishing tomorrow night. Which lake would you guys fish. I will be in a boat targeting eyes and bottle bass. I haven't ever fished either one and am leaning toward Harriet.

I would choose Harriet - mainly because I haven't fished Nokomis but with that said, I've fished Harriet off and on over the last 3 years and have always had pretty decent success. Mostly on the small side if you fish from shore but still some pretty consistant action.

Early season is usually a little on the slow side, but if you get some action the quality of fish will be well worth the wait. In mid summer I would catch a lot of 8-12 inch bass but in the spring hardly anything but a couple bass - but those few bass were 4+ lbs a piece.

Good luck - I'd give ya some spots, but I can't give out all the secrets wink.gif

Either could be good but I would lean toward Harriet.. The bullheads should be coming to life at Nokomis and that can get annoying. The walleyes should be in the shallows at Nokomis in the evening hours.. 7-12 feet is the norm.

Harriet the walleyes will be where they always are .. right on the outside of the weeds. Be prepared for lots of smaller eyes.. when you hit larger fish.. stay on them. If you cant get out of the smaller eyes you can try dropping off the 2nd break in 25-30 feet of water(sometimes). A better alternative is to use larger baits in the shallows to keep the cigars off... This time of year the area between the pavilion and the beach can be very good.. also the south end of the lake(far less pressure).

My fishing buddy wanted to go to Nokomis, so off we went. Got into the cigars right away, had some fun, and went looking for the bigger fish. We didn't catch anything worth mentioning though. Great night on the lake. My first time on a city lake and won't be my last.
