      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 .

While we're on the subject of bass...

Recommended Posts

Ray Esboldt

Since Deitz has been generous enough to host a seminar this Saturday night in our region and we're thinking about the subject, who in here would classify themself as a bass fisherman?

Obviously, since I asked the question, I am. The region isn't blessed with a ton of lakes, but there's some good ones. There's some good sized fish in them to boot.

Just kind of wondering if I'm the only one that launches into some of the lesser well-known bass lakes in our region.

Yes sir (raises hand) I am a basser. And I think we really have quite a few lakes in the area. Expecially if you count a bunch of the ones just across the river in WI. I love the bass fishing in our area!

I fish Ann and Knife for bass once in awhile. Had a nice largemouth out of Knife last year, my biggest one anyway.

I fish for most gamefish, but love catching smallies. Too bad there aren't more good smallie lakes around here. The st croix puts out some nice fish though. Top water fishing for bass is the most fun in my opinion. Can't beat Chisago lake for bass size and numbers. Let's make all the lakes in the chisago area catch and release for bass!

I have a question on our stretch of the St. Croix. I've fished the St. Croix Falls to Nevers Landing stretch a bunch. However, I've never fished north of it. I know big boat navigation is limited, but I have a boat that would be suitable for that stretch. So, my question is, what's the best float stretch of that section of river? I know it's all pretty decent fishing, but what's the best start point and end point? I would prefer that my car windows don't get smashed in while I'm away, so the more highly used landings would seem the best option.

Ray, I plan on learning the stretch up by hwy 70.. there are quite a few landings up there.. I think its mostly canoe travel.. I did some landing wading last fall and hooked into some very decent smallies...

I figured it's mostly small boat/canoe travel. Deitz, we'll have to give it run this summer. I have the perfect boat for it. It's a hybrid canoe/boat. You can actually stand in it, so it isn't as uncomfortable as a regular canoe or as tippy.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
    • monstermoose78
      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
    • monstermoose78
      I need to slow down and focus on shooting
