      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 .

Anyone have any thoughts on Riley Lake? I was told not to go to Red Rock so I am looking for something in the SW cities to do on Saturday. Have done alot of the lakes south of Prior lately.

I don't know why anyone would tell you to avoid red rock other than to keep it for themself. Its no longer a trophy lake except maybe for some big pike. I catch lots of sunnies and crappies but they are all small. Its fun for my kids.

I have never fished Riley even though I live around here. I've caught about 6 different kinds of fish right off the pier in the summer so I guess one could do well in the winter, I've just never tried. I haven't seen any info about Riley this year.

I'm also looking to hit Riley tomorrow for maybe the early morning crappie bite then some tip up action. I know a lot of cars have been driving across the lake but i was wondering if there is any places to avoid? Anybody got any fishing reports from there because it seems like it's getting fished pretty hard recently?

One of my friends claimed to have caught a 16" crappie confused.gif out there a while back. I think they catch some nice ones out there, haven't experienced it first hand yet though.

The only walleye i have caught out there was bass fishing in the shallows. Just came up and smoked the spinnerbait. About a 4lb didn't get the inches on it though.

Only walleye I ever caught on Riley was form the pier. I've never actually fished form anywhere else on that lake.

It's funny how often I hear of walleye being cought while fishing for bass.

Maybe I should change my technique to bass style. smirk.gif

I brought the rods along for the kids so we could cast off the dock. I caught sunnies, crappies, bass, a northern and a walleye, all from the pier. I think the fish just really relate to the weeds in this lake.
