      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 .

URL report for 5/6, 5/7, 5/8 & 5/9

Went out of westwind on sunday the 6th. Nicely marked channel, but the 30-40 SE mph wind sure made it hard to fish. After 4 hours and no crappies I called it a day. I wasn't there to catch walleyes and that's all I was catching. I tried to fish the SE side of the lake, but the 2-3 foot(or bigger) waves made it pretty difficult. North end was out of the question.

Monday the 7th was a much nicer day, still windy but not 40mph. Went out of the river. By the afternoon it was calm and I was able to manage 5 crappies (released) along the north shore.

Tuesday 5/8 was GORGEOUS. 75, no wind, not even a ripple on the lake. WOW cool.gif. Again I went out of the river and this time I managed a nice limit of crappies out over towards roger's.

I didn't make it out on 5/9 due to the fact that I had my possesion limit and I had a 6 hour drive ahead of me. So once I was done with work I simply drove by the landing. I believe I could easily have reproduced tuesday's results though.

I was catching crappies in 5.5-6' of water but at all depths. I'd catch 'em on the bottom or 1' below the surface. I figured that out when I had one swim by my boat 1' down and I managed to drop my jig in front of him. Crappie minnows and a JB ant seemed to be the ticket. They really seemed to like the very slow fall of the ant over other types of jigs. I did spent some time to the N. of the river and I did catch acouple crappies, but I had 2 guys motor withing 100', yes 100' and start fishing. If I wanted to be that close to people I'd fish in the cities. Overall I got to see the worst and best of URL. I can't wait to go back!

p.s. Kelly P. did you eat lunch at westwind on sunday? I think I saw you there, but i've never met you so I was unsure. If you did I was the short guy in the corner who looked like I had the tar beat out of me on the lake.

Thanks much for the fishing report, I'm heading up this weekend and am just pumped. Hope the wind stays down. Bringing a newbee, I just want her to catch one of those 14-15 inch hogs everyone talks about. Seems like there hard to come by in the past couple of years. Good luck, will try to post how we did.

I buy Kelly and Jon an adult beverage on occassion from time to time... but we usually forget about who's giving and who's getting the info... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif Your investment would have a greater payout hitting the 2 Petrowske boys up... I'd still be out in the lake in my ice house if it wasn't for them 2!!! smile.gif
