      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 .

I fish a lake in the summer that has areas that rise up from 40 or 50 feet to very shallow weed edges within a short distance. I have had pretty good luck finding crappies over 20 feet off the weed edges in the summer. I have no idea where to start looking for winter crappies. Could I expect to find them in the same areas in March as in June or would they most likely be hanging over the deep areas a little further off the weed edge? Any advice would be most appreciated.

Try the places that you catch them in late fall. Summer spots seldom hold crappies around here. Every once in a while at late ice Ill catch them in summer spots but not now. Another few weeks and they should be back hangin around deeper water by their spring holding/staging spots.

Don't be afraid to go deep. A lot of the schools of big crappies I find are in over thirty feet of water on flats adjacent to sharp breaks. It depends on the water clarity, but I like to go deeper than shallower, though you can catch crappie in 10 FOW in some instances. You really just need to find a spot that looks good on the lake map and drill a lot of test holes in the area and find those red lines on your vexilar. Drilling a lot of holes before you start fishing is important, especially the shallower you fish, because it allows you to get on spots without spooking them with the auger. Good luck.
