      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 .

I live just a couple of blocks from Penn Lake. Its at 86th and Penn. There is a jetty that I fish off of occasionally while walking the dog or just getting out for a bit. I've never caught anything there yet. I've only seen people shore fish the lake and haven't seen anyone out there in a canoe or boat. I don't know if motors are allowed. There is a boat ramp. I don't have a map of the lake and haven't seen any fish stocking/netting data. I believe I tryed to find it on the DNR lakefinder one time awhile ago and couldn't get a hit. I've talked with the neighbors when I see them out working in their lawns and one guy said people get fish out of there. Mainly panfish and an occasional northern. I know there are plenty of carp in there. I don't think the lake is very deep, the City of Bloomington runs an aerator there during the winter. I've never seen anyone out there ice fishing either.

Deepest area might hit 7 feet (in front of the aerator) Majority of lake is less than 4 foot.

AJ,

Yeah, I think there might be a few tigers left in the little lake that is Penn. Might have to hit it with king tut super frogs before dark some evening to verify. Musky Reon is back in action.
