      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 .

March Crappies

Recommended Posts

Steve Ellsworth

Jonny P.-We're all packed and ready for our 7 hour trip to URL. Is the crappie bite improving much? We're anxiously anticipating that first "Slab Crappie" that we catch! We'll check in with you around 1:00 p.m. on Saturday. Last year it was -20 to -30 in February, and this year for March 1, 2, and 3 the forecasted temps are in the 30's. We're hoping the crappies are cooperative. We'll occupy your 6-man shack for a couple of days.

See you soon, Jonny P.

Is it god speed or something like that you are supposed to say as warriors venture out into a daunting battlefied? To move quickly and move swiftly...well that has been the key lately, lots of hole hopping around the area the shack is then deadstick them bad boys in house after dark.

You guys should have decent temps and we are starting to see spotty crappie action.

In other words, be prepared for a slow bite! But with temps in the 30's, it'll be a great trip regardless.

The encouraging news is that "shakey legs" will be your neighbor. Back to the same holes as last weekend?????? confused.gif He wouldn't come back to dead holes. Could it posibly be that he was sandbagging us about his last weekends catch????? grin.gif

I think the only ones that got sand-bagged was us. Fishing "memories" did not work. Crappies bite from 9:00 a.m. until noon in bright sun outside but then nothing at prime time. The spot you plowed for us (thanks for not running over the bucket) was dead last night (1 crappie) but Doc had a nice flurry in the morning outside and I managed to snipe one from his hole. If you and Jonny hadn't stopped by to visit once in a while we might have gone stir crazy. The only other traffic down the road was the retired trucker. This morning coming off the lake we didn't see a single vehicle until Shorty in his van on shore. I enjoyed the stories last night - We will be back up on Thursday.

As busy as this year has been with scouting and moving that was the first time all year that I sat and had a drink while [PoorWordUsage]'ing. A good time. How the years have flown by. \:o

Ellsworth didn't do good either and I never marked a thing to the south. The next house to the east had a couple good flurries. It seems to be small waves of activity moving west to east.

It is amazing how empty the lake is of fishermen now. Many square miles of no fishermen. These schools of crappies that we're waiting for could be slipping through all over. So much lake, so little time. crazy.gif

Last year I hit the mother load, shot my mouth off, and got run over.

This year decided to fish diversion spots, time it right, and focus on the best for last.

And now there's nobody to chase me?

Pffffft.
