      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 .

High Water On The Way

Recommended Posts

DARK30

I do believe when this snow starts melting we're gonna see some real high river levels. If we get a lot of rain to boot, she'll be up into the trees for sure.

Hopefully it won't stay high for long but we might as well be prepared for the high water options this spring. Looking to smaller rivers like the Blue Earth or way up the creeks will my focus when the time comes to wet the ol net.

Last year it was over the bank at the fishing opener but didn't stay long. This year we got tons of snow on the ground and when we get the rain to go with it...we'll be looking at fishing way off the main river for awhile. This is some my favorite types of fishing. Times like these you'll catch more fish in your waders back in the woods than you will out of a boat. Fishing the right spot in a flooded creek bed far from the main river is really a hoot! I admit I prefer fishing on foot but when the river is approaching the underside of bridges, thats about the only option anyway.

All you'll need is your favorite little crank or plastic rig. Maybe you'll even need a little OFF for the skeets but standing back in the brush up to your knees fishing a shallow rocky creek bed can be some of the best fishing you'll have all year. The beauty of this approach is that any creek entering the river will have a strike zone somewhere. You need to find that spot thats keeping the fish concentrated in a short stretch of water. You can reach some of these areas by boat and sometimes you can't get there by land anyway because of location and trespassing issues. Sometimes you can park the boat,get out and walk a ways up the creek. You need to get away from the dirty water.

The "mix" area where the cleaner creek water meets the muddy river backwater is the spot! In most cases this water is shallow being 1to 3 feet deep in a small creek. Bait is key also.. this area also attracks the bait. Many times I've stepped into a flooded creek back in the woods and caught loads of walleyes and white bass just as its getting dark.

Ah, the rights of spring in the Minnesota River Valley! Get your Agates,your Morels, and your Fishin...IN! grin.gif

Finding those full creeks is a blast. Look for that mudline and the fish treat it just like a steep breakline.

I don't see the river getting really high with out some significant rain though....the river is real real low right now.

We should be in pretty good shape if we dont get too much rain before all the snow is gone.
