      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

Yeah and it takes alot of smarts to drop a jig on the bottom and wait doesn't it?? Or better yet, lets throw some crankbaits on and troll around.

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

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
