      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 .

OK, here goes. Tyler put on a school yesterday crappie fishing on Lake Zumbro. He outfished me in a BIG WAY! A couple real decent ones too. (12" +)

We were fishing the deep wood and the crappies were tight to the bottom in 23 f.o.w. Every crappie he caught had the Power Bait deep in the mouth. They were for sure hungry. I just couldn't do anything right. I even applied the "When in Rome" tactic and that still didn't work.

No excuses, so Tyler, I bow the the master! tongue.gif

It was still a good time though. Getting out in open water again was a good thing. And although the wind and rain played havok with us we had a lot of fun.

B.T.W., Tyler, nice boat Dude!

"Unlucky - #13" Dan took ownership of the first part of that phrase.

The rain was wet for about 20 minutes, but the rest of the day its was easily fishable. We worked deep areas with wood nearby.

When I fish deep on the Zumbro, I really like to 1/8-1/16 oz jigs with Berkley Gulp minnow grubs in the 2" size. White is my personal favorite color, but I have not tried many others. I also caught some fish on 2" Power Bait - Power Minnows in black shad (with some flake) and brown shad.

I tried (and lost) several jig heads, but white caught the most fish for me.

The basic key was fishing slow. Really slow. Draging the jig across the bottom with a slow hop every couple feet. I would reel in about 6" of line, then pause for about 2 seconds, and repeat.

We marked fish 12-14' down, but they didn't seem active.

I got 2 new biggest open water crappies 11.5" & 12"






All fish were CRP'ed again today. I should start using my livewell as a tackle box. cool.gif
