      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 .

Actually it's right around normal levels. If any fish will do for you go to the west arm and fish around the bulrushes and lily pads, your bound to find lots of fish for your son, maybe even a nice largemouth or two also wink.gif

I always brought a 5 gal bucket and filled it about half way. I let the kids put some of the fish that they caught in the bucket. When they got bored with fishing they played with the fish in the bucket. I used the livewell for any keepers. A scoop of minnows in a bucket and a minnow scoop will also do wonders to keep there attention. Don't forget the snacks and don't keep em out in the boat for hours and you will have a future fishing partner.

My kids also loved it when we took the boat up the channel to Eagle. They could see all kinds of fish swimming in the shallow water. We've also seen deer. Have fun!

I don't think a boat that big would do very well going up the river, its difficult enough with a 16 footer because of all the rocks and the very shallow mouth on the potato side. Also last fall that river was clogged up with all kinds of debris.
