      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 .

Recommended Posts

Hello...I am new to the Rochester, MN. area (moved from Colorado)and I am looking for some good areas to fish from the shore/dock?

Also, is fishing allowed out of the main river that runs through Rochester? (Within City Limits) I have not been able to find any regulations for this.

Thanks...

trout, since the season there is open year round. check out the special regs on that lake before fishing though. people also target bass and panfish in foster's as well.

The locals on this forum should be able to help you out finding other spots around Roch. to shorefish....

Good Luck!

County road 68 (Wabasha county) has a number of places to pull over and fish the Zumbro River. The road goes from Zumbro Falls to Hammond. Smallies are the fish to target right now. But there are walleyes and northerns in there too. Plus every rough fish you can think of.

Mcrae,

Welcome to FM and HotSpotOutdoors.com

If you haven't already, take a peek in the Rochester forum. We talk about shore fishing in there about every day.

Rochester Forum

The river that runs through town can be fished in any adjacent public park (there's several), but may not be fished from private land. You might get a better response if you post this in the Roch forum as well.

Foster Arends, Willow Creek, Silver Lake, Chester Woods, Lake Zumbro are all decent fisheries and all have public docks to fish off of.

Also, find someone who lives on lake George and can let you in there. Its the lake right off of the Zumbro and highway 52, by the Think credit union. Its usually pretty good. Private but pretty good. Otherwise get out of town a little ways, there are some great trout streams in that part of the state, well worth the drive.
