      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 .

I just moved back to MN, I live in Chanhassen. Are there any good public places to fish the river from the bank? I don't have a boat yet. I grew up in Marshall and fished cats in the Minnesota near Granite Falls, also in the Yellow Medicine and Des Moines rivers.

Hey Peder welcome to FM and back to MN. There are an abundance of spots to fish from shore on the river. Most of the land directly adjacent to the shore is public land usually with a trail to boot. Most of the easy access areas also have some traffic (other fishermen) to deal with. Sometimes good, other times, not so good. What would you like to catch?

Living in Chan, I would recommend Carver. There is a public launch there with a tressle bridge and an area with a small creek coming in. Lots of good areas, different structure and depths to try.

Thanks for the reply. I would mostly be fishing for cats. Also what would be a good sized boat/motor combo for the river? I'm thinking of something for summer when the water is lower.

I think the rig I have, which is a 14ft w/25hp is probably the minimum you would want. Yes you can get by with less and plenty use a 15hp. I think that is going to be fine also.

It doesn't have to be anything special. It sure is nice to bounce off/over logs, run into sand and not worry too much about it. With a larger boat this will become a bit more worrysome, not only for your safety, but also for your pocketbook.

Unless of course that bigger boat is a RiverPro.

for what it's worth- a 14' runabout with a 15hp works fine on the upper miss just fine for me.

I wish that i could afford a riverpro. I think I'll start looking for a 14' jon with a decent motor. Any other sugestions on rigging it?
