      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 .

Vadnais Lake

Does anyone know why we cant put a foot in the water, a canoe, or ice fish on this lake? Yeah, I get the water supply thing, but St. Paul gets a ton of water from the Mississippi River too and I cant imagine a canoe doing any damage to the water supply. Doesnt make any sense at all unless they have huge intakes out there somewhere that fisherman could mess up.

I have no idea why too but I kinda like the idea of having no boats in the water, more fishes and bigger fish. I haven't caught anything from that lake except for potato chip sunnies but heard lots of great stories.

The water clearity of Vadnais stays pretty good through the whole year. In fact all the connecting chain of lakes in the area are designated off limits to boaters.

I once heard Vadnais is where they get a lot of the fish for the State Fair DNR pond.

That is definitely not true. I use to work for the MN DNR Fish Hatchery close to downtown Saint Paul.. So I should know.

they actually have their own hatchery pond. read on the papers when the dnr director was retiring and it mentioned it in there about 2-3 weeks ago.

This was probably 10 years ago, but I biked down to hidden falls and talked to a DNR that had just brought his boat back to the launch...he had a tub full of carp, suckers, redhorse that he said was going to the pond at the fair. Maybe they've changed how they get their fish since then, or is that how they at least get the roughfish?

About 90% of the fish at the state fair are obtained by electrofishing the Miss River.

Hey Supaman when did you work at the hatchery? I know those guys.
