      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 .

Transportation to the dome?

Recommended Posts

Coming up from Iowa for the first two games. Staying at Prior Lake. Can I park and walk, or park and take a bus to the game? I'm perfectly capable of walking a ways if necessary.

Spinner, Find the info for the light rail and you can park around the mall of america and the light rail drops you off right by the dome. The only drawback is that it is pretty crowded after the game. I always had my best luck driving up and finding the cheap lots a few blocks away and just walking. Do that for both twins and vikes games. actually pretty nice and if you do it right you can avoid some of the traffic. grin.gif

Thanks Matt

If I take the rail, how long of a wait are we talking after a sold out game?

After a sold out game you might wait up to an hour to get on a train, especially if it's a close game and everyone stays until the end. If you park at the Mall of America lot it will take about 35 minutes to get to the dome. You can buy a 6 hour pass and ride all you want. For a 7pm game buy your pass around 6pm and go. Get to the park around 6:35pm. A 3.5 hour game (thats long) takes you to 10:30 and leaves you 1.5 hours on your pass. After the game take the first train going further downtown, it's only another 8 blocks or so to the end of the line. Stay on the train (after all you got the pass) and come back towards the dome. You should make it with time to spare. You will spend more commuting time taking the train than if you drive. If there are more than 2 people in your group it's cheaper to drive downtown and park in one of the lots about 2 to 3 blocks away from the dome. After a game traffic disperses in all directions at once so there is not a big jam up.

LOL Kaz

My wife at the mall for four hours. That's about as scary as Carlos Silva pitching to Pujols in the World Series.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?

      @leech~~ There was all of 10 inches where I was but I’d say it was a tick more.

      Hey all, I am looking to catch a decent perch in the 7" or bigger range and soon because in my class at school we get to taxidermy a fish and I would like to do a yellow perch, I have fished little Pulaski for 2 days and Buffalo for one and caught nothing on Buffalo lake and some bluegills and bass on little pulaski. Anyone got advice on spots in little Pulaski or Buffalo lake or just another lake near by Buffalo as well for perch? Thanks - jim
