      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 .

The ice fishing is done for the year for me. I'm gonna be in st. cloud this weekend and was wondering where I might be able to wet a line. Would there be anything to catch (crappies or catfish or whatever) below the st. cloud dam or is the water too cold for anything to be active?

I know we used to pick up a few small crappies on the campus side. I don't fish for cat fish but I have caught some in the evening when fishing for walleyes. But I am not sure where you would find them now. Maybe on the east side of the bridge I believe there is kind of a hole on tha side. Good Luck.

Was it around this time of year? Were you just using minnows under a bobber? I'm hoping if there can be 2 days in a row of warm sunny weather the water would be warmer below the dam because of the surface discharge. In theory that would draw some fish close to the dam.

I was down on the university side the other day for an hour or so and didn't get anything. The water seems to be a little too cold yet. The other side of the (Contact Us Please) was frozen over last I checked so I haven't been able to get out over there. A week or two of warm, sunny weather and the fishing should pick up. You never know what you're going to catch in that river either.

I work at the hospital in St.Cloud and there was PLENTY of ice left in the river earlier this week. It has opened up quite a bit, but I'd say that water coming over the dam is still pretty cold. Give it until beginning, middle of April and that water will be a bit warmer for those crappies to start schooling up.

The crappies in good numbers below the dam? Sounds like I might be wasting my time fishing there this weekend, but who knows, I'll probably be back up there in a couple weeks.
