      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 .

Nest Lake?

Recommended Posts

gws

My parents are considering moving back to central MN from Northern MN in order to be closer to home. They have put Nest Lake on their short list of possible lakes. I would appreciate any information about the lake and the fishery. I have found some posts about weeds and poor water quality in summer. (So how bad is it????) Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!!

Nest is a wonderful lake to fish, it is definately one of the better multi species lakes in the area. It is a very good panfish lake, lots of pike and bass and if you work a little bit, it isn't to bad finding them walleyes too. As far as it being bad, maybe during the dogdays of summer it is real weedy and green, but I myself have not seen it real green. Weeds are a good thing if you love to fish. It can get really weedy at times in the early part of summer, but it seems that the weeds die off shortly before the dog days of summer end. Let me know if your folks decide to buy a place on the lake or close by, I would be happy to hook up sometime and do some fishing out there......later...

My grandparents live on the lake and I recreate/fish on it all the time.

Traditionally in the past 8 years or so the weeds will start growing about a week or 2 after opener and get really bad or bad enough to irritate a person until about the end of June when the lake warms up. The weeds die off then and the lake is good to go!

The lake really doesnt get green at all. Sometimes there is a slight bloom of algae in the lake but nothing special. My grandparents own a pontoon on the lake so when it gets off it’s off to the lake and out to the sand bar! It’s a nice little lake and in-fact the only one with at least 3(?) resorts on it yet. Out of the 5 that used to be on there...

PS, pray for high water levels all year this year. The boat landings in the area will need it!
