      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 .

Plan B (Crooked Lake)

Went out today at 5 to 5 this morning, wanted to be the first on the dock and I was by about an hour, had four nice bass on a terminator buzz bait. Switched over to start catching the crappies and they really were hitting, southern pro tubes again were the ticket, either in a brown/crawler color, or using a dark blue speckle with black teasers. I did trim up the tube from 1.5 to about an inch, got more bites without them hanging on the tails, using a 1/64 oz two tone jig head in orange in pink made by freshwater tackle. Other guys were catching some 13 to 15 inch bass trying for northerns and walleyes with fathead minnows. one little dink walleye was caught around 13 inches, called it a day around 8 am just before everyone started to show up.

MJ:
No I didnt, we thought we had the problem fixed with our lund, went out to linwood to try it out but after about five minutes at full throttle the rpms dropped out and the engine started to miss, so it has another check up with Rapid sport marine. How was LETS this weekend MJ?

LOST And Everyone else:
We can definatly meet up there sometime, I only have a half day of school left then I have football camp but early morning would work great for me.

We finished in 6th place with about 32.5 pounds. ChuckN cleaned house with 62 pounds off fish! Next closest was somewhere in the upper 40's. We found the bass, caught about 20 yesterday. We also pounded the panfish, bringing in a limit that weighed about 15 pounds the first day! I'll post some pictures once I get them. A lot of fun, some big slabs!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them.

      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
