      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 .

I'm definitely going to try to make it. I haven't gone to one before. Do I need to sign-up or is it just a show-up thing?

No need to sign up, just show up and be eager to learn from the energetic and one-of-a-kind Deitz Dittrich! Deitz is a bass geek (I'm sure he's fine with me calling him that grin.gif) and he not only has a lot of tournament experience but he also enjoys teaching others about the finer points of bass fishing. A worth while seminar if you are a bass angler, or if you are just looking at picking up a few more pointers on how to land more bass this year.

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

I wanted to invite everyone again, tonight Forest Lake Gander MTN... It would be great to fill that seminar room and show the power of FishingMinnesota.Com.

I am really excited to meet some new FishingMinnesota faces, and catch up with some old friends tonight as well.

Lets talk some bass fishing!

For those that weren't able to attend, Dietz put on a GREAT presentation on Early Season Bass techniques. The crowd was small but there was lots of questions/answer time and some real good tips given out!

He even gave out some of his secret tips and baits that he uses early season cool.gif

Dietz- One question--> Why do you tend to target NE corners of lakes when the shallow waters tend to warm up faster? I was meaning to ask you when you had the lake slide up, but didn't.

Thanks Capt and Ralph for the kind words...

To answer your question Capt. Usually, if the fish are in spawn or pre-spawn, if you have found the warmest water in the lake you have found the most active fish... If you found the most active fish, you catch more. The only time this would be different is if the fish in the noerthern part of a lake are done spawning, and the fish in the southern part of the lake have just started.. I really only see this happening if the lake is VERY large!

Deitz-

Once again, nice job buddy!!

It was nice to run into BDR, MJ5, Bechtold, Blimek, Captain B.R.K., Ralph Wiggum, BDR & Corey's kids, and others I'm forgetting.

If you keep flashing photos of large bass like those, I might have to take up bass fishing a little more seriously. Right now, they just get in the way when trying to catch bluegills. grin.gif

I couldn't agree more, excellent seminar Deitz! I picked up a lot of valuable information that I plan on putting to the test this open water season.

A lot of options out there for bass anglers, and having an understanding of what to use and when to use it can be the most complicated issue that a bass angler faces. Deitz really made it easy to understand some of the more important concepts and techniques needed to land more Early Season Bass.

Deitz22-390x294.jpg

We learned where to find bass during the early parts of the year, as well as spot-on-the-spot locations. Where will the bass be during different conditions and also what to throw at them when they are there.

Deitz also answered a ton of questions and demonstrated several different ways to rig up plastics, tie knots as well as a few different jigging techniques, just to name a few. Deitz even briefly mentioned pike tactics and touched on glow presentations as well smile.gif

An easy to follow, highly productive seminar in my opinion. Good job Deitz!

Good Fishin,

    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering. 
    •   OR, maybe it was a conspiracy........   http://6abc.com/sports/nfl-prematurely-promotes-vikings-patriots-super-bowl/2968550/
    • Yes, the vent is to let air in the system as it drains. If the vent is plugged, it is possible that the vacuum created by draining water could suck the water out of a trap, which would let sewer gas into the house. 
    • No worries, the NFL says it's time for the Vikings to at least go to the Superbowl......   http://6abc.com/sports/nfl-prematurely-promotes-vikings-patriots-super-bowl/2968550/    
    • If you weren't going nuts in your man cave or where ever, like all those folks on YouTube, are you really a fan?   My hound was barking like a mad dog to get back in the house because the Mrs and I were screaming bloody murder.   Is this the year? I sure hope so for my 85 year old Dad, who brought me to my first ever NFL game.........the Ahmad Rashad hail Mary catch against the Browns. Which taught me it's never over till it's over.        
    • Looking good PF!!  My daughter came home with a trouble maker last weekend,  cute little poop ( golden retriever) but a handful,  ya that rug doesn't belong there..
