      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 .

East Metro Shore Fishing Spots

Recommended Posts

Patriot_Eagle

I am looking for input from my fellow anglers on good shore fishing spots. I have 3 grandchildren that all have their own rods and reels, and their starter tackle boxes. I am looking for some good spots other than the public docks and piers, something where they can just sit on the bank and learn to fish. How about it, gang?

If you are from the ne metro West Rush Lake up in Chisago can be a wonderfull sunny/crappie shore spot. Try up on the the north end in the parks using crawlers/waxies with a small jig or plain hook on a wieghted slip bobber and you will be sure to catch something!! Good Luck!

I have caught sunfish at a number of spots in the east metro: Tanners Lake (near 3M) (has a playground for after fishing fun), Battle Creek Lake (just south across the freeway), Carver Lake (in Woodbury), Lake Elmo county park (also has a playground), Gervais Lake (near HW 36 in Little Canada), and Fish Lake (in Eagan). Also in Inver Grove Heights: City Hall Pond, Simley Pond, Lions Club Park (by 65th and Blaine, also has playground). Keep the worms, hooks and bobbers small. I have had the best bites near sunset (bring bug spray). Have fun!

Try Phalen, there is plenty of shore fishing in casting range of walley structure. The channel between the lakes is great for crappies and sunnies. If the kids get boared there is a playground with bathrooms. smile.gif

I dont know about the other lakes you listed, but Lake Elmo is a terrible shore fishing lake in my opinion. I mean, it has a fishing pier and all, but there isnt very many fish. Even fishing off a boat is hard on Lake Elmo...
