      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 .

CRAPPIES ON FOOTLAKE

Recommended Posts

Whats the deal with the crappies on Footlake.I did a lot of ice fishing out there this winter and had my camera down the hole and they were all over the place,the thing is they wouldn't bite.It didn't matter what baits you used,they just had a mind of their own.

Call being VERY picky.
Same way one Nest lake, they are down there, but just dont want to bite. When that happens just whip out the tip-ups and hold on. If the pike follow the crappies they will definitly bite on a tip-up.

And keep those hooks sharp!

Yes I know how you feel. When I was thinking of buying a camera decided to rent one 1st to see what I thought about them. Hung it 2' above my jig had 11 crappies staring at it like chinese firing squad. No matter what I tried they wouldn't bite. Never did get a camera was too mad. Now I'm thinking of getting one again.

By the way iizfishin welcome to the forum. grin.gif

What size hooks and bait were you using. I had that once than I switched to smaller baits. Size 20 trout hooks, mayfly nymph, worked a few times. I also had crappies only want big baits like 2 3/4in. fatheads. At times anything is worth trying.
