      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 haven't really been out, have been dealing with stuff over the last few weeks and finally getting back to normal.

I went out one time 2 weeks ago with my brother. We just tossed around jigs and plastics for crappies and sunnies on a small lake. Didn't catch any crappies but we caught some sunfish. I also caught some decent pike and my first walleye of the season smile

Hope everyone is having a good spring.

James:

We caught some crappies out of the boat earlier on 3 different lakes when we had some consistently warm weather but with this recent cold snap it has been slow, can't even find them in the deeper water where we had been getting them. Peter is coming up from Florida soon so "get ready"!!

The gills bit good all weekend using a fly under a float, basically the same rig red fish fisherman use. My rig consists of few split shot above the fly then a bobber. I was working it around old reeds. Most fish wanted the fly moving so a good hard pop to make the fly lift and make the bobber smash into the split shot and the gills would race up and hammer the fly while it was settling back down. The rig works great on crappies also when they push up shallow.

Tried to find some crappies Saturday, but no luck. Water temp was anywhere from 48-52 degrees. Did catch several gills, bass, and pike though. Slip Bobbering with plain hook and crappie minnow worked best. Also had decent luck pitching jigs and plastics. Hoping for some warmer weather so the slabs move in.

Just move out deeper from where you think they are moving in to!

Heck, I've caught crappies this time of year in 25 FOW....

Heck I am thinking about going out to my 28' winter hole, putting on a frosty with a waxie, and using the Vex!

This kind of crazy weather must really mess up the spawn, i don't think they know if they are coming or going do they? We had April in March now getting March in April eekeekeek

Once you see those temps pushing 60 degrees they will be stacked up like cord wood in their spawning haunts!

Went out this evening with JB to a very small lake neither of us had ever fished, drove up to N end of the lake in a small weedy bay and got some nice crappies and big gills. Fished a 6-8' drop off area. Crappies only hit on jig tipped with 2.50" white Gulp, none on minnows but the bigger Gills sure were hitting the small jigs with a minnow.

Lesson number one, when you go fishing make sure you have gas in the boat so you can hit more than one spot. Tired BigC yesterday. Lots of little northerns, but no panfish.

Hearing some good reports from around my area... Wish I had more time to get out and fish but I just haven't had the time. I'll take the kids out this weekend and hopefully get them something to put up a fight. Try a couple shoreline spots in the evening and see how it pans out.
