      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 .

In your "turks column" you wrote about sunny and crappie fishing on the river. I have caught tons of crappies in the spring under docks but i have never caught sunnies or crappies from docks during this time of year. What depths r the fish ussually at?

crappiehunter,
Try fishing docks over deep water, crappies are usually right under dock to 5' under.The best docks will be over 15' under them.

Crappie hunter,

Thanks for the question, the key is to find the docks that are (again) over deeper water. Shallower ones aren't as good, also you need to work an area of extended docks (larger areas).

What types of docks do you usually fish marina's? boat docks? and what sections of the river?

Even smaller docking systems like the beanies one will hold fish! I remember last summer watching a lady jank one slab crappie after another from those docks. It's fishing though then the next day they can be gone.

Turk,

The dock I fish most is the sunnyside marina south of stillwater. This deepest parts are about 20ft.

Crappie hunter,

From my experiences that's an excellent place to be...I usually start a couple feeet above the half way mark, and then keep the spread between bobber and hook shorter and shorter.

Some docks have mini spillways in them, places where the wind and the current pushes water through the docking system faster than others and these areas usually are areas I key on. Some days the wind or current doesn't "push" enough to make this spillway happen though.

Keep catchin'
