      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 fish lake in MG

Recommended Posts

Ive taken a break from throwing muskie baits a couple of times lately to fish bass and crappies. Has anyone else been to fish lake in Maple Grove and seen the thousands of dead crappies floating all over the place? Is it an oxygen issue or ???? Though there are tons floating, they are all 4-6" and nothing bigger. All I have caught are the same size as well

Moby1 - I was out on Fish about a week ago and also noticed quite a few dead crappies floating. Not sure what caused it, but I do have to say the water quality in Fish seems to be getting worse every year. I live less than a mile from the lake and have been fishing there since I was a little kid, so I've really noticed the decline. I'm guessing part of it is due to the fertiziler folks are using right up to the water's edge on their lawns. As for the crappies, there a few nice ones in Fish, but like you said the majority are pretty small.

This is an occurence every spring and summer on lakes all over the state.

It happens for a couple different reasons, and most wide spread cases typically only affect Crappies.

When it seems to only impact smaller fish, it's easier to shrug off. But I have seen cases where numerous slab fish appear on the lakes surface, and that gets frusterating.

One small pond on located private property winter killed one time years ago, and in the spring, it revealed Crappies in the 14" range, Bluegills at the 9 inch mark, Walleyes up to 26", and Pike that pushed the upper 30's that dwelled in a small puddle that even the owners of the property said "I never knew...."

The "puddle" turned out to be 30 feet deep, as one winters investigation proved.

That's a bummer, but Ma' Nature is in control.
