      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 would say that this is the most difficult time of the year...you can fish for everything except bass and musky..the two fish I would say that are the most sporting with most of the fish caught being released by fishermen... come on 24th...

It was caught and released! I do not know what happened to cause the injury, but it is back in the water for you guys. For us, first smallie to be caught in this area ever by us sucker fish'in in the last 5 years.

It was caught on a river rig and crawler.

Check out the Carp/Real Game forum for more details!

I know the feeling, though haven't felt it this year(living in WI it opens earlier of course).

Found the bass here in shallow weedbeds near deeper water last weekend. Fished swimbaits on the edges and soft plastic jerkbaits in and over the emerging weeds. They were definitley aggresive, though were missing the bait quite a bit. Managed a few nice 16"+ largemouths and some pike. Didn't seem to be setting up beds, but they were shallow.

definately excited to fish MN lakes on the 24th! I get to get out of the land where rapala is pronounced rapauwla for a bit (Wisconsin)

Lunker- looks like your a student at Point too, I'm a sophomore taking fisheries. Recently I've found about the same sort of thing going as you with the largemouth, been using mostly super flukes and working them real slow in bays around laydowns and done descent. Smallies as far as numbers I've found mostly along the slow seams of current yet. I have a few pics in another post down a few

    • Since we are on the subject.... Has anyone every used the synthetic winch rope on their houses? I have it on my UTV winch for raising and lower the plow and love it.   http://www.amsteelblue.com/1-4-diameter/
    • Stage? More like an addiction...
    • what da matter wit ya willis???????????? oh i remember da summer camping with da boonsefarm and ripple!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I suppose you assume anyone who drinks any other wine to be a sucker falling for a marketing ploy!
    • That is fine del. A lot of people like Ripple and Boonesfarm wines too.
    • You said... "I'm not going to discuss it" and I agreed you don't need to.    Sucker for the marketing folks.     I drink what I like.   And I don't like paying way too much for whiskey that tastes no better to me.  If you are one of those super taster snobs, more power to you.  
    • I run  5/16 on my new house. My old house had 1/8 form Miltona and lasted  just over a yr. I was out the sec time of the yr and seen one was fraying a little when setting it down on the ice. After I had it on the ice I told my son  we have to change cables when we get home. Fast forward 6 hrs and crank one side up about half ways and go over to the other side and start cranking it up and the cable broke. If my head would have been in the way it would have been bad news. I had enough cable to restring it. And get it up and locked in. I went to the other side and started to crank and that one popped to. I went and got the floor jack out of the back of the pickup and jacked it up and locked it in place. I put 1/4 on when I got home that night.   I take my house in the car wash everytime I come home when its wet it. If you have bad cables change them. For me it every two yrs and thats with 5/16 inch
