      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 .

Lake Washington was sprayed on Monday.

Some say it doesn't hurt the eating fish after the annual spraying. Personally, I will C & R or hit another lake for a week or so. I wish the DNR would not allow spraying.

Sprayed for what? Weeds? Seems a little early for that.

I think everyone should call their Representative and let them know that you are against this. The DNR is forced to allow permits to kill vegetation. I believe killing vegetation is wrong they belong to all of the people of MN but if you live on a lake it gives you the right to destroy something that belongs to everyone.

Yep, weeds. They try to get aggressive with the curly leaf pondweed in hopes that native vegetation will take root.

Last year I saw hundreds of dead ears and crappies after the spraying. Coincidence?

I know that they started spraying Washington about four years ago and it sucks. The water should be very clear this time of year but now it looks like it should in the middle of July. What a bunch of B.S. They do it to a bunch of lakes in the cities and I think it ruins any chance of catching an eye in the weeds since they are almost all gone. My question is how can people who live on the lake have it sprayed when they only own the land and not the water.

I don't think it's the homeowners choice, I've never seen any info being asked for their opinions on this, I think the Lake Associations and the DNR are the ones to talk with

I have live'd on washington for about 9 years, they have been spraying for about 6 or 7 years for curly leaf pond weed. dnr says it does not harm fish. I think the timeing was bad this year. I love to fish and i do everychance i get. I am not saying it is right or wrong to do this, but before they started to spray , it was horrible to get around on alot of the lake. I think the crappie contest they have every year out here does more harm, last year 100 boats almost 1000 crappies caught when they were spawning.you can't tell me that does not hurt. if you want to voice your oppions or are interested in the lake, there is a meeting at westwood every third tuesday of the month, and it is open to everybody at 7pm. or go to the lakes web site and call a member of the lake associations.
