      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 .

First, welcome to Fishing MN!!

There are plenty of good shore spots on the Zumbro. There is a public fishing pier at Fisherman's Inn. There is also the concrete steps across the lake from ponderosa that has plenty of good shore fishing all around it. To get to the steps take Hwy 52 to Oronoco. Take a right at the gas station at Oronoco. Follow this road to "Power dam road" on your left (may be a mile or less). Take power dam road until you see the right turn for "Mac's campground." I am not sure how far it is. There is a little dirt road to the right just before the entrance to the campground. It winds uphill to a little parking area. Walk down and fish!

Like Murph says WELCOME wink.gif

Quarry Hill also has a nice area for kids to catch fish. They will bite on a bare hook. It also has turtles and a few HUGE BASS!! I saw one once that was at least a three pounder.

The pond is directly behind the nature center. Plenty of shoreline and a nice bridge that goes across. Great place for small kids.

Welcome to FishingMinnesota.com!

The Zumbro can be pretty slow at times, so if patience is an issue better look elsewhere. As Dan mentioned, the Nature Center has a nice "catching" pond, it is easy to access and it is free! The Chester Wood park lake has a dock that is also accessible for kids to fish, but there is a daily fee to get in. Silver Lake in Rochester can also give the kids a fix on fish too.

Again, welcome aboard!

Down to Earth

Yes there are panfish-o-plenty at Quarry Hill, though my experience with my son is that they are very hard to catch. The reason being is they are very,very small and will pretty much just nibble at your bait until nothing but the hook is left. I've even fished with small ice fishing hooks with the same results. So experiment and hopefully you will have better results.

Dan,

I have seen that Bass. We go there quite often, though not to fish, and I bet most times you always see some kid throwing everything at that bass tempting it to bite. I have never seen it caught. That could be a challenge.
