      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 .

Is access in dayton at crow river and miss. deep enough for 18ft. lund? How is the walleye fishing from there down? As you can tell I'm new to the River. How far does the pool from coon rapids dam go? Too dayton?

I would say your boat is probably too big, especially given the low water conditions we'll have this summer. There are shallow riffles just below and just upstream of the access that could mess up your prop pretty good. I was gonna use a canoe there sometime this summer...the bass fishing is excellent there!

Your better off launching in Champlin with that boat, you'll have a heck of a day in this low water without something that is purpose built for the river (Jon Boat, Jet Boat, or RIVER PRO!!!!) I saw a Fiberglass bass boat try to put in there last year and he wasn't happy when he pulled it out right afterwards with is prop all chewed up!

From the 169 Bridge south to the Coon Rapids Dam is fairly safe running once you know it a little, when the Recreational Pool is at full height you should be able to go anywhere in that area!

I would launch form 101/169 bridge and slowly move around, untill you are aware of were danger spots are at. Take it slow and trim up. A trolling motor is a must. I have an 18' boat I bring down their, but I do not have a deep hull. Good luck!

Champlin would be the safest bet. The Dayton launch isn't all that (lots of sand) and it's still low water. Is that mongo sand bar showing in front of the crow? If it is it's prolly too shallow.

Yup the shallow rocks are right below the launch and about 3/4 mile up. So not much area to fish in that big of a rig.

Any who - the Champlin launch is pretty nice from the CR dam to the 169 bridge. What RR said grin.gif

Also the "pool" is X miles long. St. Cloud to Coon Rapids.

I ran up to Dayton today from Champlin, if you you don't know the river really well don't even try it, unless you have a jet or a really shallow draft boat. I've made the trip a hundred times and had some white knuckle moments. Got hung twice on the drift on rocks, the wind did not help. The sand bar will be showing by tomorrow I think. I hit a lot of water today, caught a few small fish, Smallies and Snots, no Eyes and snaped my shift cable about 2 miles from home. Anybody got a spare 14 foot Yamaha shift cable they're not using? frown.giffrown.gif
