      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 .

Are there any fish in Fox Lake? My parents live on the lake and there appears to be fish in there according to DNR reports. I however, have had terrible luck on this lake. Is it best to skip it entirely for opener? Any tips for fishing the elusive Fox?

I have fished Fox Lake(the one north of Faribault) before on the opener and have had limited success, some years better than others. A few places to try are the N.E. corner of the lake where the big sand bar comes well out from shore, the entrance to the creek to the right of the public landing (work these areas with jig-n-minnows,leech or toss small crankbaits #5 shad rap works real good). One more spot that is kinda hard to find, but can be worth the effort is to go left of the public access on the south shore watch your electronics, about half way down that shore line there is a point that sticks out, work the edges, while wathing your electronics carefully. There is some hard bottom(rock, sand) areas within the weeds that usually hold some fish.

Remember that wind, weather conditions and time of day will also lots of say to the bite.

If you are going out, I hope these give you a few areas to start at.

Good luck and Happy Rippin
