      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 .

if i'm a MN resident and i wanted to smelt on the WI side, do i need a WI fishing license? i was told one year that MN residents did not need a WI fishing license, but WI anglers would need a MN fishing license if they wanted to fish/smelt on the MN side? anyone know the legality of this?

oh and where is park point located if i'm coming from the Twin Cities?

MisterFish,

I can help you to find Park Point. You will take exit 256B just as you start to see downtown. You will go past the 1st overpass that is 5th avenue west. Next overpass you want to turn right to canal park and then another right to get to lake avenue. At lake avenue you want to turn left an head down to and over the lift bridge. Once over the bridge you are on park point. I think it's about 5 miles long. I buy a non-resident Wisconsin lisc. so I'm not sure about the law. There is more then enough to do on the Minnesota side so I would just stay there and not worry about it. I hope this helps and welcome to Fishing Minnesota.

Take care,

Tom (BD110)

The way I understand it, if you are smelting on the lake side in Wi, you need a Wi Lic and vise ver. if you smelt in the bay, you only need a lic from your home state (mn/Wi). Maybe I am wrong but that is what I have been told>>>later the load

The best place I have found to smelt is right along the pier as you cross the lift bridge going onto park point. I tend to find a place along side the road, through on my waders and put the nets over my shoulder and walk right out to the beach.

The spot I'm referring to normally gets pretty packed, so it's best to get their early.

The park point beach is great because it is a gradual, sand based beach that makes for nice smelting....when the weather cooperates:)

Hope this helps!

Captain, that was one of my favorite spots too. Now theres deep holes scoured out along the pier and a few choice rocks to trip over or snag your net on.
