      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 .

Hey, I'm new to the area from Mankato and was wondering if there was any good spots for fishing around(shore). Would be targeting walleyes, pike, or bass. Thanks for any help.

Pike - Go to Snelling Lake. Bass - try Black Hawk & Bur Oaks. Most Eagan lakes hold LM Bass so their not difficult to find. For the Pike use spinners & spoons. For the bass use plastic worms and jigs.

Fish is pretty weedy right now you can get at the bass this weekend since I can see them on the beds with the gills. Pike fishing is great once the weeds die or if you can hurl a topwater out far enough. Don't be surprised to catch something that doesn't look like it belongs in the lake. Especially in eagan area. That is the first thing I learned.

Bass are in every lake in the area and decent size too.

Got to love the metro lakes.

In order to get to that pit you'll have to trespass so you need permission. You could walk miles from the Snelling park side to access it legally. But don't be surprise if you catch nothing at all. The pit has very poor oxygen levels even though it is spring fed. You can however catch a few pike, ocassional Bass and Carp over at GunClub which is easier to access than the pits.
