      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 .

have been out a few times with mixed success. Lots of houses out there a few weeks ago but the last time I was there a lot were gone so I'm thinking the action is decreasing.

I've been doing very well up there, just get away from everyone, way away. Everyone is in small areas but the crappies are all over, I've caught them every place I have been just as long as I wasn't close to anyone.

I spoke with a DNR offical while i was fishing out on green a week ago, and he said the average size crappie now being kept is 7". Thats really sad i remember going out there a few years ago and catching alot of 12" plus crappies. SO I asked him why they are not out there trying to give people over limit tickets and his reply was it takes to much time to catch people in this act.. Didnt know what to reply to that , frustrating answer. But yes the lake has been hit very hard and from what i hear not many people have heard of catch and release yet.

If these want 7-8" crappies Bryant lake in the cities has millions of them. I have brought kids out there fishing for years. You can catch your limit in 30 minutes or less,if your on the fish.

Just got off of Diamond. Stayed away from the crowds. Not much going. A few small perch and some smaller eater sized eyes. Didn't feel like filleting anything tonight so back they went. Plus, I think enough fish have already been killed from that lake this year \:\(

Gonna try a different lake tomorrow....

Diamond is a pretty good sized lake but I imagine it will take some time to recover from the harvest that has taken place out there this winter.

Hoping the walleyes weren't hit as hard as the crappies and there are still a good number of those in my future for the open water season. Otherwise there is always beer and jet skis I suppose.

I heard 3, but one may or may not have been caught last weekend with the brief warm-up.

Good point Leech, I try to separate the two activities as much as possible!

I was out on Diamond last weekend and caught a few crappies for a meal. I have never seen so many fishhouses on a lake of that size before. I did notice that there were alot of crappies in the 6-7 inch range and alot of 9-10 inch range. I think that the lake should be ok for another year if they all ain't caught this spring. This was my first and only trip there for the season. The way the fish were being caught reminds me of Red Lake in the days of the big Crappie bite.

ya, thats crazy that a lake that was always so awesome for eyes, has died that much. I cant believe that. But like you said, if everyone is taking everything home, thats not good at all. Most of them should have been C&R!!
