      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 .

June vs August

Recommended Posts

We have done a fly in fishing trip in Ontario the last three years. We have always gone the second week of June. Our group is talking about moving the trip to the last week of July or first week of August. What are some of the Pro's and Con's of switching months?

I'm primarily a pike fisherman and I prefer August. My reasons are the mosquitoes and insects usually are not a as much of a problem and there generally seems to be fewer people fishing at that time of year, which we like, and the weather tends to be pretty stable- not as many rainy cold days to contend with. For Pike, if the lake you fish has decent cabbage weedbeds you will find some decent pike. The weedbeds usually will have some walleyes too. I think the fish may be a little more difficult to locate in August as opposed to June, but as for our group the advantages of August out weigh those in June. I don't think I have ever had a trip in August that I thought was bad, and that's @ 15 years and several different lakes. Just my opinion! Rick Hill

For sure the best part of going to Canada in late July, early August is that the weather is a LOT more stable. Warmer days and some warmer nights with some incredible thunder storms. Without A/C some times those cabins get real stuffy. You'll find that you will have to fish a little deeper to find the bigger fish. The biggest problem going later in the year is that you have to wait that much longer for the trip to start.....

I have been doing fly ins for over 15 years and have gone every month of the season and they have been good in there own way so my thought is if you have always gone in June try August!

    • interesting web site never spached  a turkey yet....   could be soon!! 
    • Lookin' good....spatchcock that beatch!!!     http://reeltym.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-ultimate-turkey-smoked-on-barbecue.html  
    • I just spent 8 days pheasant hunting in SD last week. Almost every walk in area, CREP area, some waterfowl production areas were cut. Why is that?
    • You wait 'til Delphonic whips you ragged and shows ya his soused-up IQ. But, we MUST remain on the bean soup topic. Mikey is trying to copy it down. I know he can cook it right. Must remain on topic.....
    • You must be as bright as the woman we sold a ham to one time years ago at the grocery store I worked at. She asked the owner of the store who also worked behind the meat counter how to prepare the ham. He told her to put a can of 7up in the bottom of the pan and put in the ham and roast it a 350 degrees for whatever length of time. She looked at him puzzled and said "how do you balance the ham up on top of the can of 7up?" We laughed about that one for years.... Good for you!
    • Copy and paste and put it in yer little Google "recipe box" like I do. Amazing what computers can do.  Other than that, I no longer gives a rat's azz anyway.
    • You do realize that was never the point, right? The problem was not so much that the threads get off topic but that the great recipes you guys were posting weren't being indexed and no one could ever get back to them and put them to use. This post is great and any time I ever want to make bean soup I can just do a search and find it easily. It gets harder when a bean soup recipe gets posted in a good morning thread or something like that. Just sayin".
    • Doesn't stay on the grate real well that way. 
    • Manburgers!!! The only way to cook meat....juicy, grilled burglars!  grill it, baby, grill it!!  
    • Maybe try simmering it over a charcoal bed with some chunks of apple or cherry for a 'real" smoke taste?
