      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 .

Narrows near Indus

Recommended Posts

I can't remember the exact spelling of these rapids/narrows (Manatau?), but I have a few questions regarding sturgeon fishing. Can you drive your boat through this narrows/rapids this year? How deep? What's the nearest boat ramp up and down river? Which is closer?

Is there a certain side of this narrow that seems to hold sturgeon?

Thanks for the replies. I'm heading up with the rest of the Excursioners in 2 days.

You could drive your boat through the Manitou Rapids, but unless you are a local who has done it for awhile I would not recommend it. There is a very small margin for error when shooting the Manitou.

There is an access that would allow you to fish the back eddy of the Manitou just down stream, but it is only a four-wheeler access. You are not allowed to drive a truck down the access. Going downstream the next closest one is Franz Jevne, followed by Nelson access in Birchdale. Going upstream Loman is the next closest access.

No body really ever fishes Manitou for sturgeon so I can't answer that question. I would probably fish out or Birchdale or any other access downstream right now. Any farther upstream and they don't seem to be getting the numbers of fish as they are downstream.

I've seen a couple of fishing shows filmed just downstream of the rapids and they did quite well.
