      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 wondering if anyone has any crappie presentation/suggestions tips? I have not targeted them on my lake (Marion) but I know people fish for them? Any help would be appreciated!

Try minnows on noting bigger than a 1/16 oz jig. What I would do is find an area where the crappies are hovering over the weeds (15-18ft usually) and cast so that you are pulling the jig just over he top of the weeds. If it is windy and hard to keep the bait down at that depth putting a split shot or two about a foot above the jig helps alot. I hope this helps you!!!!!

GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've used a small spinner with a minnow (and a couple split shots) trolled over the same cover and depths Fish'n Guy mentions with some success on Star. Never fished Marion, but if you've got weed growth in that 11-15' area I'd say it should still work.

If you're hitting many weeds, you're too deep in my experience. I try to only pop an occasional weed.

I've been catching many of them on beetle spins or road runners in white or crayfish colors in the many lakes around Battle.

Can't beat the beetle spins tipped with the minnow or little rattling raps
