      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 .

Saturday scratched...How about Friday Night

Recommended Posts

Well with alot of help from Holms, Crazyice, and Rugbyguy my flathead setup is complete. I had planned on making my first flathead run saturday night but none of the locals can make it. Anyone plan on going saturday night that would have a spot open or would want to jump in with me? I was planning on trying the Miss. but wouldnt mind running to the MN. I live in rochester. I have a 16 footer with 2 boat and one bench seat. 20hp merc. I imagine its alot easier to hoist a 20+ lb fish with 2 people lol. I work until 5 in rochester and had planned on getting some bullheads and headin out after that but if somone would want to get out earlier i can get some tonight.

I've never gone flathead fishing but should have my setup in the next few weeks. I've got the itch BAD and it's time for me to put some hours in on the river! I'll keep you in mind in the coming weeks as none of my friends are into river running or cat's for that matter and I'm always looking for a fishing buddy. Good luck out there this weekend, hopefully the weather cooperates.

That might turn out something like Bubba Junior's alien abduction experience...."and not in the good way..." There's a 6 minute 40 second video on youtube if you search for "jeff dunham and bubba jr" on there and get to about 2 minutes 25 seconds or so...

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye. 
    • Minnesota, Merica, and the World commie boy!
    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy. 
    • Who's Art? Yer neighbor?
    • Hey now!!  Any snowmobile is a work of Art!
    • Hell, a garbage bin on it's side sorta looks like that.....
    • HAHAHAA!  
    • We also had an old Johnson sled that looked sort of like that......
    • A Fall retreat! The acrid smell of a wood fire....crisp leaves crunching underfoot....frost tipped-grass sparkling in the early morning sun....nuttin' like a nice, cool Fall day in da woods!  A cup o' steaming cawfee in yer paw....
