      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 .

Ive been out a couple of times below the dam on Orono 2 snakes is all I got to show for it, I wont hit the main river till the water goes down and I get my 12 horse running, water temps were right around 45 degrees on thursday but I couldnt get a good reading because I couldnt get the thermometer to stay down long enuff! If it stays warm the kitties should start up here pretty soon, I sure hope the water drops soon so I can get out!

Me and a few of my buddies have been fishing for the past 2 weeks on the miss and the crow river. we have had our best luck on the crow for big cats. We've caught more than 30 cats already, biggest 15 pounds and the average is around 8 pounds.

We were fishing the crow right by the fox hollow golf course in st. micheal, rogers area. We went out again and caught 6 more cats. The water is fairly warm. I found that out the hard way when i was reeling in a big cat i bent down on the bank and ended up goin head first into the water!!!

bigd... I wouldnt mind getting a line wet out that direction tomorrow.. any way I can talk you out of an exact location? I'm not from that area so I have limited knowledge of the crow.

I would be willing to trade for a future fishing trip for cats(channels or flats).. or just about any specie when your fishing slows down, or you feel like getting away from your backyard.

interested? fisherdave@mn.rr.com

We fish right in rogers by a railroad bridge off of county road 144, but the police came down and kicked us out cause he said we were trust passing. we usally parked on private property across the street but that guy selling his land so we can't park there anymore. My buddy lives on crow anout a mile away from that spot and there bitin there also. But were goin to try some of our other spots on the crow and the miss. and if those spots produce good i'll be glad to give you directions
