      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 .

Being that our open water season is not too far off, I'd thought you should all be the first to know that Tight Lines Guide Service is now taking reservations for the '08 season. I plan do some guiding for pre-spawn crappies but then following the walleye opener, well, you know what that means. Take some time to cruise around my website and then drop me a line. All of my contact information, including e-mail, is available on my website.

I look forward to spending time on the water with many of you this spring, summer and fall!

The main species I target are walleye, perch, crappie and bluegills. If you'd like me to recommend a bass or muskie guide in the area, please send me an e-mail. Thanks.

I know this is off topic, but in your experience when the pan fish move shallow do they do this to feed and then move back out deep or do they stay shallow.

He will tell you for a couple of C-notes - and when you think about it, that's money well spent if you want to get a feel for how fish work around this area.

I really should book a day with you. Maybe I'll use part of my "Economic Stimulus Check" on that...

CrappiesNCats maybe we could hit up Jamison together. I'm always eager to share a boat with new people. Especially come spring for crappies. We're all eager to hit the water.

There are many good lakes in the area to find great crappie fishing after ice out and up to spawning. Its seems that is always one of the times of year that I really hit the lakes hard is for the spring slab bite.

Watch the forums and you will see when the bite starts andd the hot baits being used.

Quit teasing - I have a boat that I purchased in the fall and then had to put into storage for the winter. All I got is 3 batteries in the basement and some pictures on my computer. I can't take it...

Maybe I'll just go shopping for a new locator for the bow..spending money on fishing always helps. LOL

Not teasing at all. The last few years I have had great crappie fishing for weeks.

Now this is a topic I've been waiting for, "OPEN WATER". I'm loving it.

I drove down to the Root river today just to see "OPEN WATER". I saw two Mosquitoes today. I'm pumped! Yea baby, bring it on!

Sorry about that. I'll try not to let happen again. Well not today anyway.

Shallow flats with black mud bottoms. Get some bugs hatching and game on baby let's rock and roll.

Sorry again. I guess i better go now.

See you on the water.

OK I'll try again.

If you can find the area that Crappies use to travel from the deep water to the shallows. As it gets dark and you are on the spot you can intercept them as they head deep for the night and have 5mins. or so of bang, bang, bang action. Have 2 rod ready becase they will be flying through and if you have to undo a tangle, well you loose.

But, I think you already know this.

T,O

I though I would throw in my 2 cents here and say; let's have the panfish get-together on German lake this year. The closer to the opener the better. Dynamite Gill fishing! Other wise the weeds get to thick untill the dye off.

Just my $.02.

      You start posting where the crappies are on the lake now.  We'll start talking!

      Even when the lake trail is marked the oak narrows are sketchey and I avoid it when I can. There can be 24" here and 1/4" there. That being said... There is ice but that's the worst spot on the lake

      What a difference a few years makes on the volume of posts on this site.  The early 2000’s was filled with numerous posts during the Crappie Boom by colorful characters like Kelly P, Jiggle Stick, the Gamblers and so many others.  Clamping, lead suits, IBOTS, Crappie Highway, and so many other memories.  Some of those memory makers are no longer with us R.I.P.  I don’t come on this site that often anymore but still enjoy Kelly’s wisdom and knowledge concerning the lake and topics related to it.  I try to keep up on happenings through the URL Association newsletter but I miss the old days.  I must be getting old.

      Heading up to Beacon Harbor tomorrow for a couple days. Hopeful for decent weather and hungry fishes!

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
