      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 .

Why Can't We Have These?

Recommended Posts

Down to Earth

I was looking through the Southern Minnesota Fishing book last night and noticed a bunch of these smaller 200-400 acre lakes that are heavily stocked with walleyes and seem to have pretty decent population based on sample surveys. Its too bad we can't have a few of these around here. True we have the Mississippi, but wouldn't it be nice to have one a bit closer. Maybe they could do something to those pits by 14 & 52 when all of the construction is done or are those pits off limits? Or do you think they would be to small?

I grew up in SE Minnesota, lived there for years after high school, and I now live in southern Iowa. Down here in the Iowa City area, there are one or two small (400-900 acre) reservoirs per county. They were created by damming up small creeks that flow through fairly deep valleys. These small reservoirs are all good crappie and bass spots, and those with suitable water conditions have respectable walleye populations as well (this being southern Iowa, they all have plenty of channel cat). I have very little good to say about the Iowa DNR Division of Fisheries (after living down here for three years, the Minnesota DNR looks far better), but the small reservoirs are one thing they get right. How many of these sort of reservoirs could be created in Winona, Fillmore, Houston, Olmsted, and Wabasha counties? I understand the need to preserve trout streams and the difficulties of buying up the land to be flooded, but would one or two such reservoirs in each county be too much to ask?
