      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 .

Definently Lotus in Chan! You want to fish off Carver Beach in about 15-20 FOW, you will see all the holes drilled in the area. I have been out there a few nights this winter and have done great on crappie from 7"-10" even a few eyes towards evening! Give me a shout for more info @ zheuring@hotmail.com

I agree with Pikeguy, you cant go wrong going to lotus. You can have all the crappies you want there, but most of them tend to be pretty small. If you pick through them you might be able to get a few keepers. The carver beach area is always a good spot and that is where a lot of people fish. The parking lot only holds about 5-6 cars so you better get there early. You never know there either you might get a few bonus eyes while fishing for crappie's.

Thanks PikeGuy and Bassboy i will definately give it another try there soon i went there about two weeks ago and had a pretty solid bite most of them were small and almost all were sunnies i must have been doing something wrong because sunnies kept on coming up the whole and very few crappies i had a fathead on a pink jig and a waxworm on a little ice hook and i was mainly fishing on the bottom should i be doing something different?

Typically the crappies were coming in suspended about three feet off the bottom and the sunnies were sticking tight to the bottom and werent really following things up the water column. Next time you go try staying off the bottom a few feet and see if you can get any of those suspending crappies to bite. We were catching the crappies on both waxies and fatheads, but a couple of positives with the fatheads is that the smaller sunnies tend not to bite them as much and sometimes you can pick up a few bonus eyes.
