      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 .

I dont know about west metro, but Phalen lake and Keller lake is loaded with some HUGE carps... Especially Keller lake!!! I see a ton of HUGE carps swimming in the shallow on Keller.... Im surprised nobody is out there targeting these fish! Perhaps nobody knows!

YEAH, THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING TO SEE SOMEONE ON TONKA, PHALEN OR ANY OTHER METRO LAKE IN A BOAT WITH THEIR BOW. A GUY MIGHT GET A VISIT FROM THE SHERRIFF PRETTY QUICKLY. I WOULD SUGGEST TRYING THE SHALLOW AREAS JUST SOUTH OF HUDSON ON THE ST. CROIX. LOTS OF CARP AND AN OCCASIONAL GAR. OR MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON A LAKE THAT IS NOT WITHIN ANY OF THE TWIN CITIES SUBURB. PELTIER FOR EXAMPLE. GOOD LUCK.

I've shot carp in Auburn Lake just outside of Victoria. Now that I know the law better, I'm not sure it was legal. That being said, park officials have seen me out there in the water with a bow and they never said anything to me...

I've Bowfished on Minnetonka, you just have to be smart about it. I do not believe it is illegal within city limits, you just get a lot of curious looks. Lot of big ones in there too, most are around twenty pounds...

It depends the city you are in. I shoot on a small pond in a park in Crystal. I get some wierd looks, but I checked with the police beforehand and they assured me that there were no ordinances that prohibit it.

Unless the city has a law prohibiting bow & arrows, you can legally shoot in any lake that is open to hook and line angling.
