      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 .

Hello I am new to the area and I was just wondering when fish start moving into the backwater areas and what I might expect to find just fishing from shore. Any help or reports will be appreciated

Thanks

Sam

I haven't fished from shore in Winona for years but back when I did there were lots of good spots. When the river goes down a bit the boat landing past the spillway on prairie island was a good spot for panfish and northerns. Anyplace along the river in town with rip-rap rocks has potential for smallies. Across the bridge there are spots under the bridge near the landing for catfish, rough fish, etc... The 5th street bait shop can give you some current advice too.

good luck!

i lived there 7 or 8 years ago and used to fish the dam early for walleye, sauger and you could usually pick up a smallie or two. just cross the bridge and go north you can't miss it, if you've never been. the small culvert by the barges can be really good, if there aren't 15 people trying to fish it. i almost always caught fish at the homer tressle also. got a 29 1/4" eye on my wall thanks to that spot cool.gif there is so mush shore fishing there, not to mention the trout streams. why did i ever leave? confused.gif

There are really a lot of places to fish from shore. There is also lake Winona and many other small lakes that are holding great numbers of fish. You could try bartlets which is by the airport or the harley lake which is by the Harley Davidson shop. Let me know if you need more ideas.
