      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 .

Has this happened to anyone else?

I know many muskies are caught multiples times in their lives, even multiple times within a year. I'm just curious about whether or not anyone on this forum has caught a fish, then re-caught that fish later.

This fish has seen my boat twice now, and I thought it was pretty interesting. Both times she hit boatside.

and i'm much happier than I look, just bad timing.

Gotta love catch and release.

That shirt is just kept in the storage box and put on before pictures.

How can you guys tell that the fish you are catching are the same? The 2 in this post don't even look alike.

But if you look at the coloring on the pelvic fin (lower middle) you can see a color difference right above it.The 1st fish has white above it where as the 2nd fish does not. Oh well.

Im guessing that white is from the flash since it is dark. Check out the dots at the base of the tail and move towards the head you can see the dots match up.

I caught the same fish twice in one day. Theres one fish on the lake that I fish that Ive caught around 6-7 times. First caught it when it was 44 inches and as of the full moon last August it was 50.25 inches!!!

Hiya -

Caught the same fish 4 times one summer - fish had a big scar on her noggin so it was no question it was the same fish. All 4 times she was within maybe 25 feet of where she'd been caught or seen previously. Weird thing was she hit the same bait all 4 times (a purple Harasser). She'd follow other stuff sometimes, but only hit that Harasser... I lost her at least one other time too.

Fish are weird.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Hey Bronzeback nice fish! I was out this past friday and was hoping to see you out on the water but obviously no luck or we missed you that evening. Slow going, never even moved a thing not even a sm.

Not sure if I ever caught the same one but I know of 50Inchpig getting one that I messed up a bit (not proud of that but I was glad it lived.) More importantly what does the bottom of your boat look like - with fish like this coming up to it twice I want to paint mine to look the same!! wink

Nice fish!!

Aluminum with a bit of a scum line. wink

And as far as him wearing that shirt, he came back to town that night from an interview in the metro area and I convinced him to get dropped off at the landing to fish. I'd say it was worth it.

Anyone questioning that this is the same fish only needs to look at the 3 larger dots on the tail portion, or I can post a more detailed close up, but there's no question.

It's cool to hear everyone else's stories similar to this, I'm hoping I see this girl again next year.

    • I put stainless on my house before I even took it home last year.  It was less than $100 and they installed them.  I also see them advertised on Craigs place for $50.
    • Going on the 3rd year and haven't change mine yet.... that being said it is always rinsed off after being used and sits inside a heated shop
    • DON'T even think about shooting this gun. Leave it as is and hang it on the wall.  Maybe put a little plaque with it identifying it as "Granpa's gun" and the dates of his time on earth. My guess is the gun was fired very few times after he arrived in this country. Hang it up-don't BLOW it up! 
    • I think HSO readers are probably a little more responsible than some owners but I see people changing cable every 2 years, some every year, and some hardly ever. How often do you change cables and are you 1/4, 5/16, or 3/8 cable people. I usually do every 3 years on 5/16 galvanized cable and do the pivots at the same time. I had an old 6x8 skid house I built a trailer for, it was a heavy old pig and never changed them in the 9 years I had it. I will say that if I had both break the same day like someone on here did I would probably do them every other trip! I just have to believe something else was going on there too. I can't even justify the 4-5 times extra price for stainless. I'd like to hear you guys thoughts. I keep the pressure off them at all time except for going up and down. 
    • I was like bken, super simple. Just put in weights and approx value. 
    • I'm telling you we already did. Of course someone of your advanced age may not remember......
    • The trouble would be finding the pinfire shells for it. And then finding someone to take the first shot with it. There are a couple other things that don't function correctly either. One of the hammers doesn't stay cocked. It's a decent looking gun though. I'm very surprised that the stock doesn't have any dings or scratches. 
    • I can see them now. that thing is a beauty love the details on that stock. Would love to carry that through a field and hope for a true double. How awesome would that be with your Grandpa's gun. Then again I would hate to scratch it.  
    • Never thought about that. Then I could just double the offer and know what it's worth.  I can see the pictures? I'll try loading them again to see if they show up
