      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 Orono

I know this probably isnt the best forum for this post but being Lake Orono flows into the Ole Miss via the Elk River, has anyone been out on the lake fishing? I took the boat out today to check out it out, no fishing, but saw some pretty large fins surface and saw quite a few jumps around scout park.

You probably saw some carp surfacing, I have fished Orono some and have only seen carp and bullies come out. Though I have been on many pontoon rides as far up river as we can make it and it looks kinda like some decent bass structure, lily pads and milfoil. I would suggest heading up near where the Elk empties into Orono maybe for some bass and even some eyes. Of course please let me know how you do!

I grew up on that lake, well one of my best friends grand parents owned the house on the right just heading west after dam and another best friend had both of his grand parents who lived on lake. Spent alot of time out their and never caught anything other than carp and some panfish. The local Jaycees used to have a ice fishing contest out their. It lasted four years. No one ever caught a fish in four years during contest. They had to draw for prizes. I have heard of some bass action behind old bowling alley. I would stay down stream of dam. You have much better luck. If you want to get out on a lake, drive the extra 7 minutes up to Big lake. Good luck!
