      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 .

How to catch walleye!

How to catch walleye!

It has come to my attention that some people think fishing for walleye can be well a Challenge! I find this handy tactic to work well in the summer. What you have to do is treat walleye fishing just like ice fishing. Yup, it's as simple as that. All you need to do is find a boat anchored all by themselves on a local lake where someone once caught a walleye. You then motor up to with in casting distance of the other boat and anchor. You can now lower a minnow or jig or a combination of both over the side and wait. Sooner or later other boats will see the two of you anchored there and will move into casting distance where they to will anchor. The three of you will soon grow into four and then to eight. The walleye swimming below will seek the shade from all of these boats over head and just like the boats soon two or four or eight will move in under the boats.

Now here is the important part, someone needs to catch a fish, don't have to be a walleye but someone needs to have their pole bend some and a fish needs to be brought to the boat, It works best if the fish is landed on the side of the boat where no other fishermen can see how small it is. After a quick release the rod must be rebaited and tossed back over the side. When someone yells "What ya catch?" The reply must be "A Walleye" This exchange makes the area you are in a "Walleye Hot Spot" you are now walleye fishing.

See Walleye fishing is really quite easy. Just make sure you have a good cooler, lots of cold drinks, pick windy days with the threat of rain and pack a lunch. Comin soon, How to catch Panfish!

This is funny. Good post. You should always keep a 30+ inch rubber walleye or 40+ inch rubber pike in the boat to pull out of the water from time to time. That will always get people interested.

little to much extra time on your hands?

You write that like it is a bad thing!

I tend to write stories when I post here. A little humor for those sitting under the hum of tube lighting.

Great post Bobby. Gotta love Walleye fishing. I enjoy the humor as I am also stuck to the confines of tube lighting and two massive computer monitors....

    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor.

    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.
