      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 haven't seen any results. Time for a roll call:

Steve DeMars: I got skunked on the St Croix. I'm already planning for the next contest - I'm in again.

Bummer Steve. I've been there.

Most guys keep it hush-hush until the results are finalized though. We may start seeing some guys who can't hold back posting in the early afternoon after they get up from their ugly sleep. I put in a PM to Bob to see if I could get anything out of him; How he did and what he's heard being in the Text Message ring.

Well, I just woke up. We had a pretty slow night, until about 1am, then out of nowhere.

Bang, and then Bang again.

A pair of piggies.

Too bad we can only enter one.

Come on, same fish, PhotoShopped color. smile That first one looks like she's full of a fresh meal or two and both look chunky. It'll be interesting to hear what they went, especially if you got a chance to weigh them.

Steve do not worry, we gave her a go down on the MN last night from 8 till about 2:00 a.m… Only got some clicker runs on bullies and pretty good tug (smack) on a rather large piece cut sucker. Ran from 35W to Shocky town. Found the only life on electronics in deeper holes, adjacent to shallow water, but no aggressive feeding fish.

Dtro, nice channels. I figured the flats where going to be slow last night with no action after around 11:30pm, so I switched to a very large piece of cut sucker to see if I could get a monster channel to bite. Did not work last night.

Got skunked, but it was nice to be on river again. The river was pretty nice and clear of debris, but the current was a little strong.

Oh, as usual we missed the dead line for Moore’s by 45 minutes, so I did not stop in. I was going to call in my entry but figured against it. I should have, my luck might have been better grin.

SOOOOO?????

Who's got the results??

Very nice Channel Cats Dtro! Very nice!! You got some weights and dimensions on those critters?

The 2nd one looks to be of the 31-32", 11-12lb variety. First one is a tough call, gotta be bigger, probably pushing 15lb.

BTW... looks like you missed a couple spots with the razor this morning. wink

We had good action all night and missed a half dozen hooksets on live bait. Could have been an 8 flatty night if we weren't setting the hook like a couple pansies.....

Got 2 flats on bullies and one channel on cut bait.

Nothing like the channels DTRO got......but I might still be in the running for the flats.

Surprised we didn't run into you Shackbash.....we were in the area. There were 10 trailers at Shakopee but plenty of places to fish. Mostly just yahoos and only a couple other boats we saw actually fishing.

Had Dominoes deliver to the Shakopee ramp at about 11 PM and that REALLY hit the spot. Thanks for that idea Kyle!!!!

Looking forward to the next one.

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
