      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 go to Waubay any time my wife will let me. My buddy was there last weekend and said it was a little slow yet, but he talked to another guy who said they were into non-stop action. Either way, I am going this weekend because my wife said I could. wink.gif

I'm heading out there this weekend also. Hopefully the eyes will be going good. The weather is supposed to be pretty decent it sounds.

Fished Waubay this past Saturday, what a nice day! 2 guys in the boat, fished 5 hours, landed 31 walleyes, missed quite a few more, all males milkin all over the place, 13" - 15". We caught them all over the place from 2 to 16 foot of water with simple jigs and minnows. Jig color did not seem to matter, caught them on white, green, pink, orange, whatever color. I have had better luck at Waubay in the past, but I am totally not complaining, it was fun. When loading at the boat ramp, there were two guys in a boat who said they never had a bite, that seemed weird to me, put they were not happy about it. If you go, good luck, and report back.

Took the (2) kids to waubay on saturday also. Got there at 2:00 pm and left at 6:00 pm and we caught a total of 67 walleyes between the 3 of us. I should say between the kids because I never got to fish, was to busy taking there fish off and baiting there hooks.

We where straight out from the new houses going up on the north end of the lake. Plain red hook and a minnow.

We had (2) males that where 18 inches or otherwise all other fish where between 13-15 inches.

Kids had a blast!!!!

The bite on Waubay is going great. Lots and lots of small fish though, we probably caught at least 40-50 last Saturday. There are places that are much better than others though. We typically found fish in 6-10 feet, usually near shorelines or in between islands, sometimes they love to hang out around all the trees. Just stop at sportsman's cove in Webster and have Doug show you where to go. There are a lot of other smaller lakes in the area that are producing much bigger fish also, as I found out on Sunday when we tried a smaller lake in the area.

    • 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..
    • Yup.....those are the ones I use also. Work  just fine. 1 con.....the rolls are 50 ft. long and don't fit into a machine with bag storage, so you have to cut them by hand. But the price is excellent.
