      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 .

I'm heading up boatless with my wife and looking to possibly get her into something other than panfish.

Could anyone direct me to any good shore fisheries this time of year that might include bass, walleye, pike, something in addition to panfish anywhere in the Brainerd/Nisswa/Cross Lake area? Many thanks!!!

Just got back from shore fishing the Mississippi in Brainerd. From the Washington Street bridge to the College Drive bridge, you can walk all along the eastern bank and cast for smallies and pike. I've fised this stretch of river for about four years now, and I am really amazed at how productive and neat this section of river is . . . .doesn't even seem like you are in downtown Brainerd. No hyperbole, there is more solitude here than fishing on most of the bigger lakes in the area.

You can easily get to the middle of the river under the bridges, and it makes for a good day's fishing. Just be prepared to lose some tackle . . . I use 20 pund power pro to help with this problem.

A simple beetle spin or weighted tube will work. And don't be afraid to get a little wet (ankle deep) to get to some of the exposed rocks in the middle of the river.

I have never seen the river this low . . . .if it drops another 6-8 inches, you will be amazed at how much more river bottom is exposed.
