      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 .

crappie report from April 4-6

Recommended Posts

crappiedriller

Sorry this took so long, but I have been trying to get my pict.s to post with my report, and it's not working, so here is my report for Wed. through Fri. April 4-6. We went to rainy lake in search of scrictly catching crappies through the ice. Conditions were absolutely horrible with 30 mph north winds each day, and about a zero degree windchill. It was nearly impossible to fish, but we were prepared for the conditions and we drilled 100's of holes each day with our high speed gas drills until we found crappies. The baits that everyone said to use, ended up not catching much due to the fish being completely shut off with the weather. Most of the spots did not pan out either, but that's fishing.......we found our own spots, which is just the way it goes and that's what you have to do much of the time unless you are actually FISHING WITH someone who knows the area very well. Catching those beautiful crappies made all the holedrilling worth while. I would like to thank everyone who gave me tips for the trip. (Woody,Fishmiester,Tearin'Lips,UGUIDE,and SuperBlack.........and anyone else that I have missed). I would especially like to thank Woody's resort for the great accomodations that were second to none. Oh, and we also caught some really nice whitefish (up to 5 lbs.) and beautiful northern (up to 15 lbs.)

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad

      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
