      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 .

Vote for best bass picture

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is already being done, but there should be a best bass picture contest for the upcoming bass season. Everyone would vote towards the end of fall. We could just use the "Bass Photos--2009!" to post the pictures. Kinda like the same type of contest they have in the northern forum. Just a idea !

I'm in... but my camera sucks. Maybe time for an upgrade. I guess it's a good excuse. Also, I fish alone alot. (like the peace and alone time...) that makes it tough too.

I'll see if I can round up a grand prize... We dont have an Outdoors with Jonny P in the bass forum, but I can maybe scrounge up something?

If I had a Hawaiian tropic girl hold a bass I caught I think I would have a chance.

Fever - get a measuring board so when you're alone you plop them on that and hold them with one had then take a pic with the other. Check out my avatar. MSRD boards - he has a HSOforum too if you're interested that is.

for those that fish alone, you need to look up a product called a lilly pod. its a camera holder that fits into a seat base.

Deitz,

You have a web link to that Lilly Pod. Maybe it's just that

I'm an old man and not all that computer literate but I couldn't find it with a google search?

Thanks

Remember if my hands look really big in a picture it's because I have really big hands. HAHA

I'm in, so what are the criteria for judging the pics? Just the biggest fish or what?

So I guess we just wait for fall to be over now, huh. I probaly should have posted this topic closer to fall, so we do not forget about this idea.

Ok, here is the deal.. and its not 100% hashed out.. we will do a similar contest to what the pike page did.. Our own Agape (Wayne Ek) has offered a free guide trip to the winning picture. Major way cool move.. I might be willing to throw my own name out there too.. dont know.. anyway.. once bass is open.. We will post a sticky thread at the top for best bass pict/story..

Its not about the biggest fish.. its about a pict.. and you have to post a story with it too..

Not sure yet.. Very good question.. I will make a new post.. I am going to send an Email to BassnSpear/Agape/Ray/RK... and see what they think.. I want this to be fun. But to be honest, the winner will win the equiv of $300-$400?.. so there will have to be rules.. but I will say this.. the winner will be voted by our faithful, not us!

Thanks TB.. it is awesome.. And I am pumped that Wayne agreed to do this.. There will be some stipulations. Probably will have to be a fall week day, no weekends type of thing.. But if he takes you to the lake he took me.. you have a great chance at a 5 lb fish.. 4's for sure.

    • Brother and I doubled this morning in my shortest Black Hills public land hunt ever...   3 hours from time of leaving the car.      Parked the car and had turkeys gobbling on the public side of the road right where we planned to go.   Two gobblers dropped down into the field in front of us at first light and bred a hen right there.   They almost came in to us once the hen left them, but changed their mind and walked over the hill to the rest of the flock.  After a couple hours of cat and mouse we managed to get in front of them and after one close call with a blow down in the way had a second chance and were able to take both gobblers at the same time.   37yd shot for my brother, and 44yd shot for mine.   
    •   I see a pattern I hate to see from any player....Granlund in the last 2 seasons combined: April 2G/3A   Playoff Totals last 2 yrs combined 1G/4A    Those are terrible end of year stats for any player...I just think he is too small and plays even smaller...when the going gets tough he disappears..he probably is just worn out come late in the season and we need players who can step up when we need them most.
    • Can’t really say I’m disappointed in their performance. I was expecting a blowout sweep.   my dream scenario is, trade Wiggins and 1st round pick(s) to Spurs for Kawhi Leonard. Then offer LeBron James a blank check. Let him fill in the numbers.
    •     Guys, we need a name.  This is the only idea so far.  Unless anyone has something else to say, I'll make the switch later today.  Once that's done, I'll tell my story and submit my entry.
    • I watched the first half of that game, sheez, do the rockets ever miss any 3's!!
    • I think you guys are spot on about the 3's. If you look at the stats vs Houston in the playoff. The Wolves had a better FG% and also had more rebounds. Turnovers and FT's were about even. Houston simply put up and made more 3's and that was the difference.
    • I've always been a fan of launching as many three's as possible. It's a numbers game, making 40% of your three's is like shooting 60% from two point range points wise.   The Warrior's and Rocket's have shown what that type of game plan can lead to. It's the way the NBA is trending.   So we need guys that can hit from the outside. Honestly, we need guys that don't miss those three foot gimme's either.   I expected to be swept, and they played OKAY in the playoffs, but they need to step up things next year if they want compete at the highest level.
    • I wouldn't expect much out of Brown's creek.   Vermillion is tough to fish.  Really tough.  But I helped volunteer with a DNR electrofishing survey there and there are some unbelievable trout in there.    Also netted a monster northern that I'm not even sure how it even turned around in the section we found it in.  
    • Last off season I was so hoping that the Wolves would have landed JJ Reddick but he chose 76er's...what the Wolves needed was a solid quick shooting 3 point guy and I really think that ended up being their shortfall.  It was a good season and hope that Wiggins either gets traded or finds that fire in the belly to become a dominant scorer and on ball defender night in and night out!!!  I really think he has the potential/talent but just don't think he has the will or determination to work that hard.
