      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 .

River open in crookston?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. A Bemidji fisherman here. Last spring, a buddy and I fished from the river bank near the police station in crookston and did fair for cats. Was just wondering if the ice is still there or if we could come over and wet a line?? If open, are there any cats biting in there right now?? Any/all responses would be appreciated!

I'm guessing that by Monday or Tuesday, the ice will be gone. With a whimper this year, silently clearing in the wee hours.

Still pretty damned chilly water for the cats to be awakening yet.

Well I fished two spots yesterday and tried all sorts of baits but not even a bite yet... Still too cold but I had to give it a try. Ice is holding tight..

River is open here but the level has dropped to late summer shallows already.. the landings are full of mud and Huge chunks of ice. Who knows when they will get opened up.. I have been chomping at the bit to get out and give it a go with the little Lund. frown.gif

Ok guys, this warm weather is really getting to me. I need to catch something from open water! I am considering driving over to Crookston tomorrow (wednesday) to try for cats. Anyone have any updated news for me???

Well this is the first year I have caught cats in 40 degree water. Got two, one big one and one small one. For the most part it is very slow. I found about 15 big dead cats on the sand bar yesterday from when the ice went out.. Killed a lot of fish, cats, carp and suckers. I was using a crawler and jig on the bottom, shallow water, about 2 feet deep.
