      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 George

Recommended Posts

riversmallmouth35

I have never fished Lake George before and was wondering how the shore fishing is. My brother has also been wondering if you could put a canoe in the lake and fish. We tried calling city hall and they told us to call the police department. Then the police department told us to call City hall.

If any of you guys have any information about the lake it would be appreciated.

I wouldn't waste your time. Unless you have a real tasty way to cook up bullheads. That is all I have ever caught. If you are looking for a close fishery....head to the beaver islands on the mississippi river. You will have a lot of fun down there. Good luck

I know a bunch of channel cats were dumped in there the past few years to help thin out the stunted fish, but I haven't fished that lake in 15+ years.

There is a variety of fish species in the lake. If you use the search function there was a thread on it about a year ago with info you are looking for.

don't think they allow boats in there of any kind (with the exception of the paddle boats, which I think they are bringing back this summer)...

I have fond memories of fishing lake george back in the day...always caught plenty of sunnies and bullheads to keep us busy. My bro even managed a solid 1 pound GOLDFISH outta there one year.

I say give it a go!

GOLDFISH indeed!

I was walking around the lake with my kids last year and saw 3 in the shallows that I would describe as very fancy koi.

I haven't fished it for years but I bet you could find something to bite.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
