      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 .

3/20 Report - Thanks Jon and Kelly! - w/ new pics

It was to be my cousin's first trip to Upper Red Lake in search of the gargantuan crappies. I figured there would be no better experience than to stay in one of Kelly and Jon's sleepers to see how our luck would be.

Our luck was fine, but the weather wasn't! March felt like January with 15 degree highs and constantly switching winds that ended up NW at about 15-25mph. 2-4" of fresh snow fell and blew around as well. That didn't stop us from hole-hopping in search of the crappies.

As the trip went, we ended up with around 10 crappies, and the walleyes were biting so hard they were pests at times. They would even come in high on the Marcums so you'd think they were suspended crusing crappies until you got them to the hole.

Here was one such fish:

And while the next photo doesn't do justice to the blinding and pelting snow, my eyes aren't closed from the occasional blink, they're to keep the snow out! Here's another chunky 'eye.

Thanks again Jon, can't wait to come up there and try out some summer crappie/eye fishing. Maybe I'll even have you guide me to some of those massive pike we saw on the cameras. I was afraid for my bait.

Nice report Joel!

The ice is looking good up there based on your photos. I'm hoping to get up there one last time this Saturday.

The snow didn't look that bad. Maybe you're going soft with us getting closer to turkey hunting season. wink.gif

It was the freezing pellet stuff. Can't see it at all on the camera, but check out the ominous skies in the background!

Those pics were both before the cold really set-in, but the wind was going with the freezing drizzle stuff and you couldn't look at it.

Good luck up there, only problem spot will be the accesses, but the ice is plenty thick!

Had a great trip up there with you Joel. Yea, the weather could have been a little nicer but that was fantastic fishing even thought we didn't slam the big crappies. Plenty of other fish to keep anyone entertained, what a fishery. Accomodations were great as were most of Jon's stories. That lake is on my list again ASAP.

Thanks
