      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 .

this seems to be a popular presentation for red lake crappies. one question, isnt it hard to tell sometimes if your bait gets hit when the minnow is basically free swimming? there could be slack in the fishing line for example. or arent red lake crappies known for sucking on a minnow and them spitting it out like i have seen on other lakes?

The free swimming bait is what makes this presentation work. When crappies, walleye even pike and muskie go into a negative mood they will often simply suck in a bait by opening their mouth and using the water suction to inhale the bait without moving. Often times when fish are feeding in this manner it is good to have a solid 12 inches between your split shot and your hook to allow for this trick and not to create any tension that may trigger the fish to spit the bait back out as fast as it ingulfed it.

As for light bighters or "bobber lifters" that is where your Marcum flasher comes into play. By zooming in and setting the super fine line you have good target seperation. This will allow you to gauge when you "think" the fish has ingulfed the bait and check for tension or perform a blind hookset. Many times when high pressure or cold fronts roll in this is one of the few methods that will work for putting some negative crappies on ice.
