      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

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...

    • Thanks guys, was out for 4 days this last weekend and seen the migration in full swing. Surprised on how many juivies with the adults. Seen them pushing as far north as Aberdeen. Did shoot a nice ross with a neck band and double leg band on Friday. Hope to get out this weekend again. Big thanks to all the South Dakota landowners for being so nice and allowing us permission onto there land for hunting.
    • Borch there is never a bad Turkey season    
    • i've had a wheeler for 3 years now and in the brainerd area, i havent come across a situation yet when the snow was too deep to drive on. This last blast is pushing it, but with chains, no problem. most of the time the snow is blown off or hardens up fast on the lake-just have to stay away from the plowed roads/drifted areas. If i were to go to the tracks route, I would just buy a used snowmobile for 1/2 the price
    • At that price I would wonder about the quality of the metal construction and how evenly heat will be distributed.     Not sure why you are avoiding "teflon" pans, but a well seasoned cast iron or carbon steel pan comes pretty close to being non-stick.   Gotta be careful with how you clean them and minimize cooking stuff like tomato sauce in them, but otherwise they work great.   Getting the seasoning on them can be a little bit of a pain, but not that bad. 
    • never used ceramic, been thinkin of trying that cooper whatever its called frying pans!!!!!!!
    • tracks, tracks, tracks if you ask me.  You can get some pretty good deals on used ones as well, just need to buy the mounting hardware specific to the machine.  I have a 825 gator and without tracks I go no where in the winter with my snow load.    
    • Yep, I'll be adding a shield.
    • what about j-wheelz? Been around for a few years now but I never hear much about them?   Or you could just get a set of tracks?
    •   Sounds good. Now whats the fix to keep it from happening again? some kind of heat shield?
    • Thought I'd share the fix on the coolant tank for the Rev. 15/16 socket is the correct size for the inside dia of the coolant tank neck.  Warm the tank neck with heat gun and the heat the socket hot enough to not melt the plastic tank neck, insert the socket into the tank neck. Use a band clamp close the the size of the opening of the filler neck and tighten and let cool. This reformed the coolant tank neck and the coolant cap fit perfectly.
