      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 .

BIG waves this weekend... Westwind's burgers are still good!

That's my report and I'm sticking to it! I had no intentions on fishing though... I think the water needs to warm some and settle down before you have a shot at them crappie.

Good Luck!

reminds me of a story my golf partner told me once...

There was an amateur and a pro playing in a pro-am. The amateur is very nervous. The pro says relax, if I've learned one thing over the years golfing, when your partner is nervous, no matter how bad their shot, each time find one thing you can complement them on... i.e. nice follow through, nice tempo, nice back swing, you have a good grip, you kept your head down well, etc.

So the nervous amateur steps up to the first tee, and promptly duffs badly, sending the ball into the woods 20 yards to the right...

The pro, scatching his head, thinks for a moment, then says...

nice shoes.

So....

say something

say anything

ummm....

"westwind has good burgers"...

lol.

There's not much good I can tell you. Trying to salvage some kind of a rice crop is taking so much of my time that I haven't even thought about fishing. Once again last weekend we had high hopes for a little rain but the dust just keeps on blowing. O for the good old days when we used our windshield wipers sometimes and the Tamarac flowed. grin.gif

Like we always said in the plant growing business: Mother Nature can be a real pill sometimes. Not only on the ice! Stan C.

I just talked to my dad who is up at Red and will be there through the opener. Today in two hours of fishing his boat caught 20 slab crappies, the biggest being 14 3/4". The water temp was beleive it or not 65 degrees. 3-5 ft of water on slip bobbers and crappie minnows. The bite is on!!

Crappies are biting in the shallows under a slip bobber rig that is correct, as for the water temp it can change every day depending on wind direction, current water discharges and even the amount of cloud cover, remember red lake is just mother natures version of a gaint frying pan. If the temps stabilize the bite will stay going as the crappies stage for spawn, even better would be some rain making temp lines, find those and it gets even better... or it could cool off and mess the whole deal up.

Thanks for the report guys. 65 water temp 4 days after ice out? I question that... but I have seen stranger.

Are you sure your dad is fishing on Red Lake... in Minnesota (Just kidding).

Weather looks stable for opener.

See you guys on the water.

Going up Thursday night, staying at Westwind through Monday. What size jigs are those crappies looking for? 1/8 or 1/16, i suppose depends on the wind. I will bring them all.

See you on the water...or in the Shallows...

I have been running 1/8 even 3/16 during windy conditions. If it is flat calm I run a colored hook under split shot.

speakin' of split shots, anybody else been using a rubber band to interface between the line and the lead? Seems to reduce line damage and help with line diameter problems when using Fireline.

Kinda a cheap version of a rubbercore.
