      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 .

Winnipeg "Wigglers" annual event...

Recommended Posts

I few years ago, I posted a report on this thread. It pertained to an all female, Winnipeg based angling fraternity who call themselves the "Winnipeg Wigglers". Today, June 7th, 2008 marks this interesting and dedicated groups umpteenth

spring fishing event on the banks of Manitoba's Red River.

The day is spent by this group of fun loving ladies, enjoying a day away from daily life rituals and more importantly, their spouses! They range in age from late teens all the way up to early nineties! That's right early nineties, for Lillian Snyder one of the groups founding members (the Wigglers was founded way back in the 1950's!) and is still actively partiscipating in the fun & frolics.

Here's the ladies as they appear unloading their gear & tackle from the chartered bus. Notice the ingenuity of using those handy little two wheel carts that are commonly used for shopping!

All loaded up and headed for the river bank!

The ladies as they appear settled in along the river bank for a fun filled day of fishing!

Here's Lillian showing off the special T-Shirt her fellow "Wigglers" had printed up for her. It was their way of saying thanks for everything. Lillian recently celebrated her 91st. birthday.

That is so cool! Looks like they had a great time. Did they catch any fish?

I decided that it would be worth adding these additional pic's.

Pictures are indeed worth a 1000 words...

Here's another great bit of inginuity....the ladies not only use those little shopping carts for hauling "all" their equipment. They are also used for transporting their catch over to the officials station in order to have their catch recorded!

The Red River is world renowned mainly for two major species, the mighty channel cat and those massive green back walleye. However a multitude of species also lay claims to calling the the Red home. In early June, freshwater drum AKA "sheephead" as it is more widely recognized by, really makes its present known!

Every crowd has its share of comic's and the Winnipeg Wigglers are no exception. Here's one of them now displaying her catch. (well she tried to convinced me that she caught them)!

Sometimes a day out can take on a whole new meaning. This gal seems to off somewhere else at the momment...

    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
    • I have the Cabelas 8'6" telescoping trolling rods in a med action I believe. Been using them for 4-5 years now. They work great for what you are asking. Although I have never caught striper on them, they work well for the walleyes up to 28". I think they collapse down to about 7'. Very reasonably priced.
    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.
