      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 .

Dunns & Betty (Betsy)

I put this in the Annandale forum, but thought I'd try it here too.

Just wondering if anybody fishes these two lakes? Was looking through the DNR site and thought it might be worth trying these in spring for panfish (crappies).

The white crappie population busted a few years ago on dunns. Also it is hard to fish. Although I have caught some big northerns there.

Betsy is a fair fishery but hard to access through the creek.

I was out there last year and the big whites eluded me. It definately is a tough lake to fish.

Thanks for the info guys. With the size of Dunns, one would think they wouldn't be too tough to find, but they must be elusive. How's the black crappies in that lake? Many of those in there?

Betsy looks like it would be fun to fish just for the fact that access to the lake is limited. I've got a duckboat that I was thinking I could throw in the back of the truck and either oar out there or use the 15hp motor we got to get out there if the creek level is high enough. Would try to hit it early spring when water levels are usually at their highest and would bring the Marcum along.

Dunns and Richardson have always interested when looking at the DNR report and lake maps. I have never fished them, but would like to give it a try late ice maybe. When you say the White crappie population busted a few years ago...you mean exploded?? Lots of em in there or what? You never hear anything about these lakes, but seem to have plenty of fish in. Can anyone else give any info on these lakes?

Busted as in crashed. White crappies peak as bust like grouse.

I would like to see if any of the flathead cats are still around from the stocking years ago. grin.gif
