      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 .

Thumbs as rough as 80 grit sandpaper, at least for the successful bassers!

Big motors mounted on pieces of plywood wink

More logos on their shirt than a NASCAR driver smile

$300 sunglasses, visors, glittery fiberglass boats, and ridiculously priced rod and reel combos all for chasing what are essentially oversized (heck, often enough even undersized) sunfish :P

mainbutter, you bring up a good point. I often think to myself how crazy I am (I know I'm not the only one) in terms of the things I do just to chase around a little green fish...

I throw these lines at a good friend of mine who is a die hard bass guy over cocktails during our BWCA trips:

Bass guys are not smart enough to figure out the walleyes.

There are pills you can take that can cure that attention deficit disorder that causes the need to randomly cast something at every overhanging tree limb.

Green carp, brown carp.. they are both easy to catch.

Bass... the NASCAR of fishing

I actually like to fish for bass evry once in a while. Heckling bass guys is more fun however.

Walleye guys arent in good enough shape to fish bass all day!

bass guys are reaching into the tackle box every 5 minutes

walleye guys are reaching into the beer cooler every 5 minutes

you might just be a bass fisherman if...

1) you have a power worm dangling from your rear view mirror because you think it makes a good air freshener.

grin

2) your $50,000 bass boat's trailer needs new tires so you just "borrow" the ones off your house ... cool

i'll try write it in good bass fisherman language as best i can so you could understood it nice, k? laugh

Boudreaux been fish'n down by de bayou all day and he done run outa night crawlers. he be bout reddy to leave when he seen a snake wif a big frog in his mouf.

he knowed dat dem big bass fish like dem frogs,so he decided to steal dat froggie. dat snake, he be a cotton mouf water moccasin, so he had to be real careful or he'd git bit. he snuk up behin' dat snake and grabbed him roun de haid. dat ole snake din't lak dat one bit.

he squirmed and wrap hisself roun' Boudreaux's arm try'n to git hisself free. but Boudreaux, him had a real good grip on his haid, yeh.

well, Boudreaux pried his mouf open and got de frog and puts it in his bait can. now, Boudreaux knows dat he cain't let go dat snake or he's gonna bite him good, but he had a plan. he reach into de back pocket of his bib over-hauls and pulls out a pint a moonshine likker. he pour some drops into de snake's mouf. well, dat snake's eyeballs roll back in his haid and his body go limp. wit dat, Boudreaux toss dat snake into de bayou. den he goes back to fishin'.

a while later Boudreaux dun feel sumpin' tappin' on his barefoot toe. he slowly look down and dare wuz dat water moccasin - wif two more frogs!

this one is old.. basss for those who cant catch walleye and dont care what their fish taste like.. the only reason i go for bass is to fill the frien pan! ummmm SON with that fleet farm batter.. otherwise id say there is nothing to bass fishin besided fore arms to randomly cast into the weeds.. my trophy catfish just ate your trophy bass..

really why do you chase after these american carp?? i mean you hardly ever bring home any bacon, spend $100 on everyfish, need new sinkos cuz the firts 2 mm of it are missing, sit on your modified skuishy stump all day stumped cuz you cant figure out what to throw so you make another run to the tackle shop.. i could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on ..... and on

I don't understand why you can't just go fishing anymore...you have either specialize in something..fly fishing, bass fishing, walleye fishing...and they all believe their kind of fishing is the best. shockedcrazycrazy

dude lake tom. I fish for anything that bites my lure. I agree with you though. some people think that if they want to bass fish they need a 21 foot bass boat or a huge deep v to walleye fish. they do help though. I'm loving these. especially the big hook set one. i do that on every fish. i can be fishin sunnies with a 5 foot ultralite and i set the hook like im driving a hook into concrete. i dont get that bass is the nascar of fishing. please explain. keep em comin its makin my day.

No offense taken Champion. Its all in good fun. I have no problem catching many accidental bass while fishing for walleyes. They have saved many a trip when the smarter walleyes are not biting.

I'll be thinking of you the next time I reel in a 28 inch wet sock.

you might be a bass man if...

you trade your wife's van for a smaller vehicle so your bass boat will fit in the garage.

you call your boat sweetheart and your wife from the lake.

you have a photo of your 10 lb. bass on your desk at work instead of your family

grin

lol, that's an option. it's mine anyways laugh

this could sum it up for bass men but it really applies to most fishermen/hunters...

a reporter approached the Chief of a Native American Tribe and asked if he preferred the old ways or the new White Mans. The Chief gave him a ''Hmph'' and answered... '' the old ways were when women did most of the work, fixing the house, tending crops, cleaning. and the man? he hunted and fished every day with no complaints.... what do you think? Hmph, only a White Man would think he could improve that system.'' grin

    • Between these two companies the grass is always greener on the other side.   I found that once your original contract is up with Direct TV you just need to call in yearly to get the "12 month promotion"  which brings your package down to where it should be. Every September I call to get my 1yr "promotion" which is worth $40 a month off the bill. Last year I got the $40 a month off and the NFL ticket. This year they wouldn't give me the NFL ticket, but with the $40 off it is priced right at the levels Dish would be at for a new customer.  The only complaint I have with Direct TV is that I went out and bought a King tailgater for direct tv, and then bought a cheap direct tv box off of the Internet for $50. When I had it connected over the phone they guy tried telling me that when I discontinued my service I'd have to send the box in......hey wait a min....I bought and own this I ain't sending dump back to you I OWN it. 
    • Really great colors there now and butterflies by the thousands. get there if you can. Headed over for 2 hours today. Heres a few pics. Pics from Munsinger
    • Plus+1 last weekend got into a good bite in about 31-35 feet and they were all full of Minnows.
    • @Tom Sawyer   Any idea what this is with the painted lady?  Only saw this one at Munsinger.  Really a beauty. 
    • Thanks Juneau.... Just an FYI to everyone - HH is my account
    • Interesting take via Judd Sulgad on the Koivu Signing:   Perhaps most galling about all of this is Michael Russo of The Athletic tweets there is a no-move clause in Koivu’s extension. Why on earth would Fletcher agree to include a no-move clause in an aging player’s contract? It’s bad enough when you give a no-move clause to a productive player who suddenly hits the cliff but in Koivu’s case there was no reason to do this. Heck, there was no reason to give him any type of extension in the first place. He also was entering the final season of a seven-year, $47.25 million contract that will pay him $5.4 million in 2017-18. Allowing Koivu to play out that contract made perfect sense. If he had productive 2017-18, he might be brought back but there also was the potential that his money could have been used on a younger, more attractive talent. Koivu is coming off a productive 2016-17 season in part because he was able to move from first- to second-line center playing behind 32-year-old Eric Staal. Koivu had 18 goals and 58 points and was a plus-27 in 80 games, spending much of the season with Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker on his wings. Like many Wild players, Koivu didn’t do much in the Wild’s five-game first-round playoff loss to the Blues. He had one goal, one assist and was a minus-1. All of this set up Koivu with the opportunity to return this season and prove he could remain a productive and durable player. When it came to Koivu’s contract, the Wild finally was in an ideal spot. That is no longer the case. Instead, the Wild has Koivu locked up for three more years and, thus, put themselves right back in the type of salary-cap situation they should be trying to escape.
    • Thats the way I ran mine.  One run of AC comes from the converter, and one run terminates in a male plug that goes into my inverter.  That outlet run is dead unless I am running it off my inverter but I just split the couple outlets I would need behind the TV and one other spot and it seems to be working flawlessly so far.  I can watch Dish TV without firing up the genny if I want.  Only time I would really do this is during a hot bite to minimize noise.  Outside of that, just let er run.
    • I guess we'll see in 8/9 months if he's worth $6 Million.....my point is they could have waited and resigned him in the off season for less...he never would have gotten that elsewhere...never...just leaving money on the table that could be spent more wisely elsewhere IMO.  Surpirsed he hasn't extended Parise/Suter for another 5 yrs at $9M/yr beyond the 10 he already signed them for   
    • I'm guessing that worms and crawlers wash into water systems after storms. So they are not totally foreign to being found in the water. Deep mudflats? Doubt it. But I do target storm sewer outlets on lakes shortly after rainfall with some success using natural colored rubber worms for bass. And have caught an occasional walleye while doing so.
    • Just relaxing and bobber fishing with the Mrs while camping up north 10 days ago, had decent sized suckers on. Had 8 suckers left for the evening bite. Found where some smallies seemed to be stacked. Two 18"ers, two 19"ers and what looked to be a 20" smallmouth that got off boat side.  A 23" walleye decided to get in on the fun, had a snip off and lost a fish in the weeds 25' feet down. Those were some productive minners. Bringing more next year. A nice double and my wife's new personal best bass. 19"
