      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 .

How quickly things can change

A couple of guys were up there from thursday to friday using our houses that were up there. They caught their limit on crappies and walleyes and were on their way home one day earlier than expected. Then a couple of other friends were going up to use the same houses for the weekend. They got there only a couple hours after the other guys left and they didn't even have to drill out the holes. Their total for the weekend- 0 crappies and 4 walleye.

It's kind of a funny spot that our houses are in. That's the 3rd time that has happened. On 2 previous trips up there we hammered them the first day and then struggled the rest of the time up there to catch anything. It seems weird to me. Anyone have any thoughts on why they are in there when we get there and then are gone after a day. Its hard to say that it is the activity in the area because there are always people around our houses when we get there.

Hopefully they'll be in there this weekend though as it may be our last trip up for the year. frown.gif

I'd say theres a little slight pot hole and they stack up in there. When you fish them out it takes a while before a new group filters in?

brady-

Same thing here. frown.gif

Fished the same holes last weekend for a grand total of 70 crappies. Fished the same holes Saturday and didn't even see a walleye come through on the flasher.

We had sporadic crappie action within 500 yards of those holes but they were not in that same spot.

That's what i was thinking was the case. I've thought about fishing there the first day and then going elsewhere the whole second day, then trying to come back and see if their there on the last day. Don't know if this would be enough time for them to come back though. Anyone have a guess on how long it takes them to stack up in there?

Overall it looks and sounds like the fishing really slowed down starting Friday.

They fish are present. Bellied to the bottom and ultra negative. I watched them on a camera today pass by jigs so close they brushed them aside on the way by.

Major weather conditions and first snow cover of the year. A small slump that they will come out of soon, they gotta eat sooner or later.

The problem with blaming the weather is as soon as you say that someone lands on the honey hole and slams them? It sure does seem they shut down after this snow cover or they spread out?Maybe they will bite tomorrow

We had fish on the bottom almost constantly this weekend. Every once in a while they'd get aggressive enought to swim up and smack a bait. At times they were walleyes and at times crappies. I'll be up in a couple weeks looking for the active ones again. laugh.gif

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
