      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 .

In the fall the water was very low at Frontier. You had to make sure not to back in past the last concrete block too. I have heard the water is VERY low on the river this spring.

Good post Ranger boy..Thank you. Letting everyone get their rigs in safely and out again is the key. The fish will cooperate when they want. Be mindful of the smaller boats on the river when running up and down the river as well. Lets make it a spring to talk about with many great memories. Good luck to all.

"Just Add Ice"

Rangerboy--Thanks for the info!!

Are there docks in at the landings yet or should we plan on bringing waders?

Usually it is so busy at the ramps, that you can barely get to the dock as boats are coming in and out and you need to split the middle to get to the dock.(Vidas for example). Also, after you launch there is not time to wait at the dock. A lot of people use the shorelines next to the accesses to let someone out to get your trailer or pick someone up after parking. They are "usually" deep enough that you can have someone jump in/out without hitting bottom. On very busy weekends expect long waits to get in/out. Hope this helps.

With the river so low wouldnt be a bad idea to bring them along.
