      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 .

Awe, the infamous crappie search…

At this point in the season, we have just past the peak of the crappie spawn. Last time I was out the fish have migrated to deeper water, but not far from their spawning grounds. We caught both males and females here. This particular area was 9-13’ deep with a sandy bottom. There were tons fish in this particular area from what we could see with our electronics.

Right now, the fish are a little more spread out, but are still very hungry. After the spawn, they really put on the feed bag to regain some needed energy. You’ll want to stick with baits that can cover a lot of water. I personally prefer larger baits such as 2” twistertails on 1/16 (or 1/8) oz jigs. Probably my favorite is a 2” Exude twister tail in pink/white followed by Berkley Gulp 2” minnow grubs in white. I’ll also freeline Culprit paddletails and tassle tails. Many of the guys have been catching fish with Mini Mites as well.

Your best bet would be to just try different areas. Work an area with 10 or so casts, and move on until you find active fish. Watch your finder for baitfish (or fish) and work those areas well.

For crappies you should need any bait at this time. Play with retrieve speeds too.
