      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 .

When KVD says he had, "a solid practice". I am starting to second guess not picking him.

He's grinding to get his 4th and 5th fish still with an hour to go.

This is going to be an interesting tourney. Sounds like this place is a crazy tidal fishery. Saw a facebook post yesterday that Swindle filled up his boat with gas 3 times yesterday haha. I love places like this. It's no ones home water and there has never been a Bass tourney here. I keep switching my picks on fantasy. Wonder how many times Ill switch it today haha.

Yep, Not many of my guys are doing well.  Hack Attack needs to come alive for me..........well he and the rest of my team.  But yeah, this one looks like it would be fun to fish...or drive through on 4-wheelers????  Honestly most of those rice pad canals look less than a foot deep.  Crazy!

Anyone watching the live feeds today? Man if I was Carl J I would be hollering at Boyd Duckett. What a piece of work. Carl said that when he got to the spot where he caught his two 7lbers yesterday Boyd D was power poled down right on it. Carl said he probably shouldn't have yelled so loud yesterday when he caught his 7lber because there was no one around him and then all the sudden Boyd comes in and starts fishing right on top of him. Boyd couldn't figure out how to catch them yesterday but when right there today and now has 16lbs. I mean it is totally legal to do but man have some respect. I can't stand people that don't find their own fish and let everyone else do the work for them.

Not sure what to think of that one............Duckett got there first.  Maybe he had the spot in Prefishing but Joc got there first yesterday???  I dunno, just me I guess.

You watching the Blogs today?  I'm impressed with the amount of fish caught versus yesterday.  Seems guys were scraping through until the Nth Hour yesterday to get their limits.

Sounds like Carl put all his effort in practice on this one spot. He said that Boyd only came over to fish that area when he heard Carl screaming and saw him catch the two 7lbers. To me that's pretty crappy. Especially to be right on the spot where the two 7lbers were caught. It's a very small spot and to be power poled down right on it is garbage. And now Boyd is catching them. The question was brought up that if Carl hadn't had the lead would Boyd even went back to the area where he had caught only 7lbs. Guarantee you he wouldn't have

    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.    
    • what the heck did i just watch???  lol
    • Although it's tough to compete with diving giraffes, here is one of my all time favorites! 
    • I did sir. I was just agreeing with you. I listed both if mine and the trailer this fall but wanted to fix a few minor things on them before I let them go. I listed them and had a ton if interest while they were at the shop but it took forever to get them back and decided not to sell at that time because I was too busy to look for the upgrade I wanted to do. I think I will just keep them forever now.
    • Actually he can return for the playoffs. It's only the regular season that he can't play in.
    • I ended up selling ours last year, they just sat on the trailer with the limited snow. Got a Honda ATV, I'm burning gas again.
    • If the teams success is riding on Case’s shoulders and they wind up being the first team in NFL history to play at their home field - and they win: There will be a movie made. We may just be watching the trailers now. I’m not a big football fan to begin with but the last year (or two) has been a pretty darn good story. My wife and I were talking today about how we haven’t really had a good coach since Bud Grant.  I looked up the coach history for the team and will stand by that.  At least for as much as I know about football.
