      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 .

Bow Fishing Spots

Recommended Posts

Metroguy99

I have recently purchased the spool and arrow need for a bow fishing excursion. Although i dont have a very good shot, i am looking for some area ponds/lakes with large carp populations. I have been thinking of going over to Harriet.

Thanks for your suggestions

Metro,
Keller Lake USED to be good for that BUT they haven't cleaned the lake so now its REALLY weedy and dirty. BUT there are still some spots at Keller for bow fishing

I'll offer three suggestions based on what I've seen:

1. North shore of Harriet.
2. SW corner of Medicine (were absolutely everywhere on 6/4)
3. Tanagers and Maxwell on Tonka. Again, everywhere, but this was earlier in the spring.

From past experience you might try north arm on Tonka as well. I remember they were so crazy they crashed into my boat in the milfoil.

I'd try Basset Creek Park in Crystal. We used to go down there and catch (by line) and spear tons of them. There is a creek area and a medium sized pond area. Its east of Douglas Drive on 32ND Ave. There are a few parking spots. Good luck!

Harriet is loaded with big carp, but I doubt that it's legal to bowhunt them. Too many people around & too many restrictions. There are lots of big carp cruising the shallows on Harriet right now & the water is clear. Great option if it's legal. Good luck, Vern

North Arm is loaded with spawning carp. They are up so shallow that they are half out of the water. Remember, there is no limit so.....STICK 'EM.......BY THE HUNDREDS! As if you can't tell, I am not one of those who extolls the virtues of the carp.

White Bear lake in the creek next to the Ramsey beach. I use to bow fish here once a year when the go into the creek for spawning. It was always the 2nd or 3rd week in June when the water temp get to 68+. With the later spring I bet they are about to move in. I found this spot while biking and there was a guy with a flatbed trailer who had a pile of hundreds! The more you take the merrier smile.gif
