      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 .

Brent and Myself got out lastnight again with the same results as always...Brent with all the big fish! Brent has been on an unstopable streak this year with atleast one or two fish over 20lbs every time out! Things remain the same again! He got his presonal Best at 48.9lbs with a 33lb just 45mins earlier.

You the man Brent!

Very Nice!!

My gut feeling told me it was Brent from your reply in the "Where?" post Kyle. Not sure why but figured it had to be someone on the board here.

How's that PB feel Brent??

And for the record, others on the board will remind you now that it is NOT a 50lb. wink I'm still not a member either.

Thats a 70+ pointer for the KOTC too! You guys measure?? 45" length x 29" girth (thereabouts)??

I missed that this was caught in Jordan... right at the boat launch there eh? grin

You gotta get your bait placed at the washout where the concrete boat ramp planks meet the mud of the river. Nice little shelf there the cats like to hang out in. wink

Holy hannah! Nice fish, I am extra stoked about fishing after seeing a few high-40s coming out on the message boards lately. Wow, what a night between the biggun and the 33 lb that close together! Congrats on the PB.

We all know Kyle launches out of the Hwy 169 launch. If I recall, Dtro had a picture of Kyle holding a huge flat right at the 169 launch last year wink

We also know that the MN river in Jordan does not hold large flatheads smile The launch is almost always empty when I head down laugh

Very nice fish Dms95. Very nice! Thanks Kyle for posting it.

45x30 and it feels pretty good. Not as good as fighting the fish though, you don't realize how impressive these fish are until you hook into one of this size. I was just hoping to break the 40 mark but I'll take it.

Well a boat is #1 on priority list...probably next year though....if you ever have an open seat in kato I would be more than willing to provide bait and "treats" for the trip...this shore gig gets frustrating sometimes....hungee_rev@yahoo.com

good luck out there....

Down around here the shore fishing is very frustrating!

There are more spots around that will produce fish but don't expect to catch fish at the same spot every night. People have been living at my usual spot and it sucks also. mad

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
