      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 .

4th weekend

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!! I see you're holding the fort down nicely! I am already up at the cabin since I took both Thurs & Fri. off. It's really nice up in Deer River. It's supposed to be around 79 degrees tomorrow and then high 80's Sat and Sun. HOT!! We'll get some fishing in and will report back how we did. Have a great July 4th everyone! laugh

Can you go over and mow the yard, while your up there. Never mind just did last Saturday during the hurricane.

Lisa please catch some fish this time.

I would give you the hot spot we caught them at last weekend, but I am sure Jim has a few already.

Have FUN

G.C.

Lisa,

I'll be in Walker this weekend. We are planning on going up to Sand Lake on Friday, but not sure what time.

We will be in Grand Rapids on Saturday afternoon for a birthday party.

Drop me an email and let me know if you will be around.

I'm sorry I wasn't checking the forum this weekend!

We had some friends from the cities up this weekend. We fished everyday but with only minimal success. I caught one 22" walleye on Friday and multiple tiny bass and sunnies on Saturday but no keepers! It's so hard to go back to work after a great weekend isn't it? frown

I never wet a line this weekend. I spent Friday weeding the garden, hitting a flea market, and visited a friend who recently had knee surgery. Saturday drove down to Mora, visited my sister, walked around her garden for 2 hours, went to Menards in Cambridge, loaded 120 patio bricks and 10 bags of mulch on my trailer and headed back home. Sunday more weeding (haven't touched my gardens this year, they looked like jungles) spread the 10 bags of mulch and then crashed on the yard swing for about an hour. Now that the weekend crowd is gone home I will hit the lakes during the week. On Saturday I passed Knife Lake, and you couldn't have squeezed a mo-ped into the parking area at the public access. My friends lake was full of jet skis and big power boats racing around. Even they weren't planning on going out. I hope everyone else had a safe and very fun filled weekend.

We fished a lake by the cabin on Saturday and there was ALOT of traffic on it. Barb, I'm just so darned envious of you. I can't wait for the day I can get out on a nice quiet Monday to fish. We fished Winnie on Friday and it was absolutely DEAD! We got a prime spot at the access and only about 10 boats on the mid lake humps. There was maybe 4 boats in front of Highbanks.

I left on Thursday evening and got to Park Rapids around 9pm. On Friday I tried to get some fishing in but helped the youngest neices and nephews fish instead. Thought about doing some night fishing after the fireworks but was tired. Saturday after an all day party I tossed a sucking minnow out and caught a nice large mouth bass (pictures soon.) Sunday helped the kids fish again and tried to get a fish with weight for my middle neice because she wanted to catch something big, but no luck. I left one of my fishing poles for her to use and try to catch a big one. Had fun with the kids but wished I could have caught more myself.

I am now working 11 hour days for this week because my boss has the week off. Maybe I will get out this next weekend?

Hope

Chill man! I think this'll be the most laid back gtg in history! Just bring a keg and some cheez-its and you're good to go! smirksmirksmile

Just joshing...I actually think it's going to be super small since many seem to be previously busy. And that's ok too!

    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more. 
    • Outside speakers dont need to be loud to enjoy them and most dont.  Nice to have music when tending tipups on a slow mid day bite.  And great when camping.  As to the strobe, its becoming a safety concern.  There are more and more idiots driving 40+mph and snowmobiles doing 60+ and crashing on the ice.  I went with just being able to flip on our 10 marker lights but I don't mind anyone wanting to be seen.  We have blackout curtains and a strobe on top of a house will do nothing to hurt the bite.
