      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 .

Just got back from red today, stays with Kelly P not to many others up there so we got to fish from 3 different houses. Caught a 14.5 and 15 inch crappie first day with some 16 in eyes in there my dad got a 35 in pike jigging for crappies. Second day was slow, lots of small eyes with one nice 20 in and one 10 inch crappie. Fishing was slow pretty windy both days so i didnt get to venture out on the lake. I will say i have never had a crappie bend a hook before but that 15 incher almost got off cause it bent the hook. Even though i only got those three i look forward to going back sometime lots of fun. Gonna be a great walleye lake if they ever open up the slot. The eyes we caught were very healthy looking i look forward to going up to fish when i can actually keep the eyes.

Nice crappies.

Good seeing you got one of the smaller ones that many folks don't believe are there. Last winter we caught several smaller ones in certain spots.

Still a lot of snow on the ice up there I hear.

Haha yea you could say that, it snowed a little the other night but the wind really messed things up blowing snow every where. Kelly said one of the other houses marked fish all night long but not a single bite.

Glenn- If you get a chance to go do it! The migration alone is worth the trip. Its a specticle to witness and it's addictive that's for sure. When I first started out about 10 yrs or so ago we (me and buddy)started our spread with around 100 decoys and hand calls. Now the spread consists of 6 guys around 1600 decoys and 3 electronic callers costly no doubt but well worth it!! It might be alot of work but I will never quit!!!

Icehawk: So true, until you've seen it you just cannot describe it. Awesome. Nice set up, have you figured out the price per pound yet.....LOL Probably a good thing we don't on any of the trips. Success can't be measured in dollars or cents though. I've just about got my wife convinced....Bill

do you really need all those decoys set out to have any luck?

to decoy them, yes, you'd need either those huge numbers of low-end dekes or at least a couple hundred of the high-quality full body decoys.

My buddies and I are just going pass and jump shooting, which is what a lot of guys who hunt spring snows do and in all honesty can result is higher #'s of dead birds. Decoy hunting would be more fun but it is hard to justify a new decoy spread when we hunt 'em a couple days each year.

Decoy spread hunters don't like jump shooters, as a general rule.
