      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 .

Shorefishing Minneapolis Chain of Lakes

Recommended Posts

Rugbyguy

I know this topic is discussed often, but I'd appreciate some up-to-date input. I am planning a trip for Sunday morning and would appreciate any advice on catching fish from shore on any of the Minneapolis chain of lakes. Bass, Northerns, Walleyes. Anything legal is fine with me. Catch-and-release as usual. Email me at Anvalek @ hotmail . com if you don't want to post specific information. Thanks!

check out the lake maps on the dnr's lake finder for the lakes you want to target...... you can find the shorelines with a little depth...... just be mobile if you don't find 'em right away..... walleyes might be tough, but you should find bass and panfish just fine on any of 'em...... harriet's been doing well for me on the south shore-- i like to wade out a little and cast along the weed edge with some form of weedless plastic or the fly rod....

Mac,

I have been fishing the north east side with a lot of success. There are some interesting little spots along that side that no one fishes because you cant park right there. It is worth the walk if you like pan fishing and the bass seem to hang out there too.

I have not had much luck on the south side but maybe I am hitting the wrong spots. I usually go to the little dock by the swimming beach.

Have you had any luck find any Perch? I got one little one about year ago and can’t seem to find them. Same with the Crappies.

i haven't hit any lunkers this year..... just small bass (around a pound) and tons of sunnies (i inevitably go to a small wet fly when i get tired of not catching many bass).... last year i nailed a bunch of big largemouth.... haven't had the same success this year...... i'm gonna break out the float tube one of these days...... no perch and spotty crappy mixed in with the sunnies.....

thanks for the tip on the other side..... i was out this morning and almost stopped there after my sunny bonanza, cuz i thought i remembered some nicer holes over there, but just went home instead..... i'll try it next time with some spinning gear and see how it goes....

i also eyeballed about a 30+ lb. carp finning nearby, but he wasn't interested in my flies.....
