      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 .

was on a local lake fishing for walleyes, we caught 1 15 incher and that was about it. Well since the walleyes werent cooperating we decided to try our hand at the crappies. Wow the crappies were going crazy, 3 days fishing a we could have kept as many as we wanted! there were even a few in 1.5 pound range the rest were nice size for the fry pan we kept enough for a meal and the rest went back to get bigger. they seemed to be anywhere from 5 to 15 feet deep and bit everything, plastics, leeches, minnows didnt seem to matter. so if your looking for a tasty meal of panfish, head to your local crappie lake and eat well!!! I also wanted to say hi to the guy in the crestlinr that said hi to us. its nice to see a few othe FMs not afraid to say hi out on the lake!

I spent Monday morning on Madison, in the fog. As you said; Crappies, Crappies, Crappies. No Walleyes. All I could think was WOW just like Upper Red Lake! Only thing is, no netting. What give? Maybe to many people only eat Walleyes?

Your right the number are great but Red still has the size going for it. Red may not have the 16 plus crappies anymore but you can still get the 13-15 fairly frequently.

I would hope one day that the area lakes will have the size that Red has. I have caught some dandy's off washington and also a few from Madison but just not as common as the big Red machine.

No, not just like URL but it's still fun down here too. That's why I always do both. grin.gif It's tough to compare anything to that body of water. The experience and quality of fish is second to none up there.

I agree Otter, anywhere you can catch fish non stop is always alot fun and its nice if its not a 4-5 hour drive. Sometimes its also nice to get into some bigger pigs also.

I think you missed the point.

The Crappies are filling in the void that the Walleye would be filling, if they were there in good numbers! Like what happend to URL a few years back. blush.gif

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
