      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 .

22.5 Inch Largemouth

Recommended Posts

Lets hear some guesstimates or exact knowledge of the girth and weight. It was big...thats all I know, my new personal best..too bad it wasn't season..but I would have ler her swim to fight another day anyways. I wish I would have measured girth!! From what I could find on the interweb the girth is prolly between 16-18?

Facebook works fine, but it's blocked at work for some people so it won't always show. Just right click on it and go to properties. On the address(url) field just copy what's there and paste it in a post. Surroung it with address_goes_here

Girth is tough to estimate, it's something you really need to measure. But it is pretty round and looks to be full of eggs. I don't think it would hit the 7lb mark though, somewhere in the 6 range. Still a very nice fish.

She is a fat one! I have a 23in on the wall that the hand held was jumping from 6.8 -7 so i call it 6.8. Caught another 23in that went 6.7. She went back in the lake. So you are in the ball park.

I caught a 22.5 that was full of eggs and got a digital on it of 7.2 so i would say you are very close to 7...and we are talking about fishing so i would go with 7 for the story wink

Thats sounds like a plan. 7 it is!! I caught her on a X-rap in between northern Bites..I wish I would have measuerd girth but I didnt want to have her out of the water while I looked for the dang flex tape...Didn't plan on having to measure any girth.

DWW- I see where you are coming from.. But your comment is un-warrented, you dont know the situation.

X-raps are a great pre-spawn lure for bass.. One of the best.. However, its also an awesome SPAWN lure for pike.. one of the best if not the best. So, my question, if you want to catch pike, should you not throw what is best?

If you caught a lot of bass in an area and still throw the x-rap then yes I can say you were targeting bass.. but if your intension was to catch pike and caught them, and few bass, then I am fine with that..

my point.. lets not jump to conclusions!

It sounds like the angler caught the bass, did a quick tape and pict and put it back.. all you can ask of someone who caught the biggest bass of their life while fishing pike.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
