      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 everyone,

I am really bad at fishing but I have a canoe and will be in Rochester for a few weeks before I move east to start a new job. I would very much like to try my hand at fishing before I leave.

I have a bunch of equipment of my grandfathers, all I need is a little advise on how to catch a few fish. I was thinking that chester woods would be a fun place to paddle around.

I know the basics but would appreciate ANY tips anyone could give me about fishing at C.W.

thanks in advance.

there is a lot of sunkin wood and stumps out there, if we get some nicer weather and the water temps rise a bit i'd try throwing small plastics or a small minnow under a slipbobber in the riprap, if the water temps are still in the 30's i'd go deeper with the same setup, you should find some crappies or gills, good luck, theres some nice ones in there

i would say if you want to catch fish of all kinds and sizes this spring i will minimize any confusion and iwill say an 1/8th-1/4 ounce jig head with a powergrub on behind it. Buy a few cause you will sacrifice some to the wood undertaker. you can cast them out and real them in or put them under a float and move them slowly. tip it with a wax if you want. i have caught everything but a catfish in chester on this lure. good luck and let us know how it goes.

O and i see it is your first post. Congrats on finding this great place to be on the internet. If you can't be fishing you might as well be here learning about it.
