      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 .

OKIE NOODLEIN

Recommended Posts

looks like a lot of fun someday I will give it a try. I

dont need the stringer thou and could see that it could desicrate the population and with all contests as this show was kind of about there was quite a bit of talk about cheating.

there was a lot of big cats that were caught and there wasnt the handleing ethics that we so much talk about in our forums.

I really dig that noodling! I may even give it a try down south some time.

It's illegal here in MN and WI, I guess you can have a GPS, the chip lakemap with depth contour, 300 dollar rod, underwater camera, 250 hp with kicker motor, superline, power bait, fish scent, and on and on - but it's illegal to go toe to toe and catch on with your hands!?

The guys talking on that show should have had subtitles. Half the time I wasn't sure what language they were speaking. And the way those guys looked, it could be a cautionary lesson on what the offspring are like when close relatives marry. Did anyone notice that no fish were ever released? I can't believe that a 50 pound cat would taste very good.

no your thinking of girls gone grabblin grin

I am always thinking of them. smile

I thought a few years back we discovered there are like 3 regional names for noodling. I think OK, was noodling, but I don't remember where they call it grabbling or if/what that 3rd term was. It may have been 'Lucky if you keep your finger'ens'.

yea there is differnt names for it and each area of the country has a name for it they said a couple on the show like okie noodlein and grabblin. and one guy just called it plain crazy. I heard the other name for it when I was down south working some years back and for the life of me I cant remember what the called it.

I was surprised to hear even in most southern states its illegal, and where they filmed it was.

I can understand why it would be, becuase they are targeting these fish during spawn/early postspawn, when the fish are most vulnerable, but it would be a lot of fun!!!

I'd use the stick method to probe the holes first. I'd hate to loose a finger to a snapper or a beaver....:-(

they do it pretty much where ever flatheads are.

Yea Dennis I think the stick method is the key and they showed some pretty good depictions of what might happen.

    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
