      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 .

Doing well on the Crappies

I saw a product where you can build your own weed line. Its basically a length of cord with fake plastic weeds attached up and down its lenth. At the bottom of the cord is a weight. At the top is an adjustable float. So I built 6 of these "cord weeds".

I drilled 6 holes about 3 feet apart and 2 holes near this fake weed line to fish from. I felt a little foolish but I lowered my cord weeds and a camera. It took about an hour and I'll be darned I had sunnies near the bottom and crappies slowing moving in about 2 feet off the bottom. I used up most of my euro larve, pulled up my weed lines and headed home with 10 fat ones.

If I had a permanent house, I'd put those fakers all around my house. You can buy them retail at CABELAS.

By the way, I did not buy them I built my own using decoy cord, plants from a pet store and some from Linens and Things, decoy weight and floats cut from those round styrofoam tubes kids use for swimming.

I think you can buy them from the Outdoor Pro Store link at the top of this page. They are called Real Weeds made by LaDredge.

I already had the decoy cord, and decoy weights. To adjust the float I used plastic toggles you see on some hooded sweat shirts or for the hoods on outdoor coats. I bought about $10 worth of plastic weeds at those stores I mentioned but I also shredded one of my wifes plastic house plants (big leaves). I put them on the cord using small plastic tie wraps to make sure they wouldn't come off. You don't want weeds coming loose and fouling the lake up.

Not a bad idea i guess but i'll still to just drilling holes and hunting them down. To me half the fun of it is going out and looking for them in a more natural way.
