      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 .

Recommended Posts

Hey FM'ers, Planning out a trip with a couple buddies up to Zippel Bay State Park and trying to keep the load down so planning out all foods and meals and such. I'm having a hard time thinking of things to bring to much on in the boat...

If I'm going to be in a boat for a while I bring some beef jerkey, or some sandwiches in a cooler! You really can not have enough beef jerkey.

Smoked oysters and triscuts, they're just so good once they hit your lips! Also, beer. I've tried not having anything with me, and it just gets to be too much if I'm doing an all day trip. I can't get up at 4 and not eat anything until night.

Sandwiches, chips, candy bars, cookies, pop, water....The length of the trip determines the amount of food brought.

Superstitious charter captains don't allow bananas on their boats, they say they bring bad luck laugh

I'm not superstitious though and frequently bring bananas along. Jerky or beef sticks too. And sandwiches --- a lot of times I'll get a sub on the way to the lake and save it until I get hungry.

The perfect food for fishing is powdered donuts.

Just think of all those fish you are handling, maybe you catch a northern and get some slime on you, maybe you're needing to mess with the engine now you might have a little grease on you, maybe some gas. Maybe you sprayed some bug spray or put on sun block, all of that stuff leads to having some pretty funky fingers that you may not want touching your food.

The answer is the powdered donut. When you pick up a powdered donut you will notice that you are left with the powder coating stuck to your fingers creating the perfect barrier from all of that funky fish grime.

You haven't lived until feasting on powdered donuts and beer while pulling in a limit of walleye.

PBJs and beef jerky. Smirnoff Ice are good too in addition to beer, but I think beer was already mentioned. Did someone say beer?

Smoked muskie and a bass sandwich! Ok, seriously no bananas or fish food products. Beef jerky, doritos or cheetos, little debbies, and lots of water and diet dew (to combat the little debs and chips). A lot of the time its just water. Too many fish to catch to bother eating.

Hey those gummie worms work for bait also, Panfish eat them up. As said before JERKY and sandwiches, I buy a pack of cheese slices and lunch meat and squeeseable mayo and loaf of bread. Good to go all day. Drink lots of water, and not out of the lake.

Beef or venison sticks, Snickers miniatures and beer or 'Dew depending on the time of day.

Never could understand how a boat owner could alow sunflower seeds on board. Those #&%! hulls are the WORST thing to try and clean out of a boat and any hulls that are missed attract mice during storage.

    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too. 
    • How about using a AGM battery. They are sealed so no need to vent. I use one in my Yetti for the last 3 years. I also use a big volt and run a forced air furnace. I made an extra storage area in front of my rear jack knife sofa for the battery. I remove the lid to access it to hook up the big volt. After drilling the hose I reconnect the house power back to the battery. I used old jumper cable ends from my power source to the house. That way I just pull off the cables when I leave the house. No drain on battery when I’m gone. Easy access. I had it under rear sofa that was a pain. Best change I made to the house. I got the old cables off a dead jumper unit at the landfill. 
    • The Marcus Willimans that plays for the saints is not from Minnesota. The Marcus Williams that you are referring to plays for Houston.     Going to be 52 degrees there????? 
    • Did you ask @Wanderer since it was a picture you took from his post?    
    • Good job Ryan and dad!  Great photo too!  
    • The 30 is a log to have to carry constantly but sure is nice to have to keep the bait lively!  I went last night and purchased another pump in order to plug into the wall...$13 and all I have to do is move the tube from one pump and connect to the other.  I am seeing if I can easily keep minnows alive from one weekend to the next.
    • Wow, someone else who actually watched the video and figured out what Williams did. Thanks @nofishfisherman.   It should never have gotten to that. The Vikings have got to keep playing to win for 4 quarters.   Playing to protect a lead can get you into trouble much faster than it's likely to help.
