      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 .

Bowfishing near Battle Lake?

Recommended Posts

I've noticed, as I've been lurking, a bowfishing contingent here on the forum. My son(12) and I are planning on trying some bow fishing in the Battle Lake area this weekend. Does anyone have some advice on lakes that need some carp shot? How about back waters on the Ottertail? I've got access to a boat or carry in a canoe. Thanks in advance for any tips!

I don't bowfish my self but know that there is some good bowfishing on Big Pine Lake in the rushes next to the dam. Best time I think would be beginning to mid June when the carp start spawning. Always see a good number of carp jumping the dam and congregating in the rushes next to it. Hope this helps.

Gar? Now that would be cool. Do you access long lake from the Dam or the North side? I was also thinking of Christina. Has anyone seen carp on that lake?

People will put boats on Long along the north end. There is no public access or any parking to speak of.

Stalker has a lot of Gar in it too.

Christina was poisoned a few years ago, and is managed for waterfowl.

I have a place on Long when you put in on long you will see two places a long the road you can put in. I wouldn't put in where the calvert is there is a deep hole there so you can get you boat off the trailer but that's about as far as you are going to get unless you can pick your boat and carry it over a muck bar for about 20 feet. And the gar numbers are down there is still plenty of them in there but you won't start seeing them untill it warms up a bit and the sun is out I have been out there fishing the last couple weekends and I haven't seen any.
