      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 .

Local DNR Pond... too cool today ........

Recommended Posts

I took my five year old to the local DNR pond. We were catching little sunnies left and right. We could see the bait below the bobber and the sunfish moving at the bait.

He was learning .... it gets better.

So he is "teasing" three sunnies with his worm and below them you see a nice northern rise out of the cabbage. The northern pauses and then rockets up and takes a small sunfish.

Boy I wonder why the fish stopped biting.

Wow what fun. I remember casting my first Mepps spinner with my dad when I was 6 years old. I caught a little hammer handle that looked like a tarpon from my perspective. I'll never forget it. Now my wife is pregnant with our first. Can't wait to take the little bugger fishing....

I've heard of these DNR ponds, but what are they? Not rearing ponds for fish, cause then they wouldn't let you fish em? If they have some big pike in em, I might have to grab a couple of daredevils and my baitcaster, and head over there, lol.

I think they are talking about the FIN program(Fishing in the nieghborhood). It's a bunch of ponds and lakes in the metro that are managed by the DNR mainly with catchable sized crappies and sunfish. There are other opportunities in these waters as well. Nice largemouth and pike can be found in some of these spots naturally, and even channel cats, smallies, and walleye are stocked in a few of these lakes/ponds. I usually cast for largemouth in the (FIN)pond in my neighborhood, but most of the time I'm busy helping my 4 year old take bluegills and crappies off the hook.

There is a pond on the southside that I have pulled in 3 tiger ski's last year. Have a buddy who lives across the street and usually we throw a few casts for bass when we nothing else to do. From what I've seent they've hit usually under the right conditions and at night on topwater buzzers. Biggest one was 39.5", very chunky too. All just caught n release.
