      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 .

Made it out to 2 lakes after work today and although the crappies didnt have the feedbags on like i expected, they were still cooperative. Water temps ranged from 52-59, found fish from 2-8ft, minnnows and nippers for fish food, crappies ranged from 8-13.5, all fish were released for the next person to catch.

Open water fishing has been on the back burner for me for quite awhile but I have been out a couple times cruising around and casting a little. I haven't seen anything significant real shallow though.

Didn't get out at all because of all the rain. Ran the pontoon around Blue lake for about 10 minutes. Not much for vegetation growing yet, other than curly leaf.

I was amazed that on Blue on Wed 5/2 the weeds weren't really visable and the fish were stacked up and you could cast all around without weeds and I went back last night 5/6 and the weeds were thick and all the way to the surface in 4-6 ft of water in between the north boat launch and the channel.

Found crappies in a foot or two of water on sunday. Males are turning black and i would say there are starting to spawn with water temps reaching 60.

Same on Little Elk only took a bit of rain and then what really helped was the lightning.

Nothing the aforementioned lakes but hit the dam on Orono Lake in Elk River on Fri. between 4:30-5:30 & got a nice 15" wally, a 15" smally & a 10" crappie. Also had something that peeled about 100' of drag like crazy & then lost.

all the small fish you want in the weeds of Blue...found a few decent sunnies out there also but usually with the kid and he never wants to stay in one spot long so we keep moving...heard of a few decent reports on sunnies on Spectacle and Green also

I haven't fished this area much but me thinks the high water has changed things this year.

I haven't even attempted the Rum yet but I've been on Green, George, Rush, Coon and Medicine (not local, I know). Try shallow, shallow, and maybe a little shallower... There's lots of new turf for the fish to check out and feed in.

Water temps have been mid 70's tops where I've been so it's not too hot for fish to be up inside the weedlines and on up to the bank. I've looked for some of my weedline spots and for the most part they haven't really developed fully yet plus I haven't pulled so many "more" fish deep to ignore the shallow bite.
