      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 .

so you can take your bass boat out there and just keep the motor up and just power around with the electric then--weigh in would be great to see!

Is there going to be any money on the line??

One of the funniest moments I've had while canoeing on Calhoun was passing a stripper glitter boat towing another stripper glitter boat that ran out of juice. 400 hp was no match for those big 'ol pipes coming out of my shirt sleves. laugh

Put me down as a definite maybe for the 27th.

I don't have a live well so I'm out - I've never fished it, but I know I'd stick close to the walking path just for the views!

I fished it for the first time this AM. Interesting and very clear lake, did ok lots of smaller 12-14" fish and one chunky 19". Mainly tossed heavy jigs and dropshots on the milfoil edges. The 'scenery' was pretty nice but it might not be as nice later in the fall...

I could see parking being a problem but if you get an early start there should be sufficient parking on the streets.

Livewell in my boat isnt big enough for a limit.

Yeah, just can't use the big motor. Would help even the playing field for ones that don't have the 200+hp motors.

Yeah but if you have a 75lb electric you'll still be moving around the lake twice as fast as someone with a 40lb. It'd just be a slow motion race to the hot spots.

I have never fished Calhoun before, but it sounds fun... Nice way to spend a saturday anyways... We should try and get some plaques made up of something fo bragging rights! (Not really sure how much plaques cost, just an idea)

Count me in if it is the Oct4th.......Years ago they used to have a Aquatennial Tourney there and one well known local angler showed up one year with a john boat with 6 batteries.

Would it be a team tourney?

Shotgun start?

Could have flights based on boat power.....Paddles and oars go out first......40lb thrust and lower next 75lbs or less next....anything over 75lbs last flight.....

I have also heard rumors of a certin local guy that put a 202lb engine mount Minnkota on the boat and could just about pull a skier. Might be the same deal.

    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
