      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 .

Hello High Water

I will be going out to Big Carnelian/Square Lake this afternoon. Can anyone help me catch crappies? I can find them but must not be putting the correct presentation in their faces. Any advice will be tried.

Thanks

I've been on the water a few times this week and have marked plenty of fish but they seem to be very lethargic! You might want to get back to the basics and try a plain hook or flu flu under a bobber with a minnow or waxie. On BC try the NE bay. Most fish suspend over 35-45 feet.

Haven't been to BC since the hardwater. I've fished several other lakes in the area and the cold spell at the end of last week really shut them down. The northerns are about the only thing going but that should change by weeks end!

Hello High Water

Thanks for the info. I went on Fri. and spent a few hours out there. I located tons of fish on the north bay and off the point directly across from the launch. Again I was skunked but am happy to be floating and fishing. I figured the cold front would shut them down. I will be heading out there Wed evening and try it again. I fished an orange jig 1/32 with 1" white grub. From time to time I would tip that with a minnow. Any better ideas?

I have had the same problem up on Rush this time of year. What has worked for me in the past is to down size to a glow ice jig tiped with waxies or maggots. Some times in the still cold water I just could not get a strike any other way, nothin on minnows or plastics.

i used 1/32 flu flu jig with tiny bit of gulp worm to catch bunch of sunfish and crappies. the gulp worm had to be really tiny or i didn't catch a fish. one inch power bait was too big. fishing was pretty slow, once the water gets warmer fishing should pickup.

Hello High Water

Goin to BC again today. Got skunked last Fri. but still had a good time (Funny how that works). Any tips would help. I'll try the little jigs again. Should they be more active with the 70 deg. temps?
