      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 .

Minnewaska

Recommended Posts

Anyone know anything about Lake Minnewaska? I'm heading up there on Friday to do some prefishing. I'm basically starting from scratch with the maps.

I hear there are some dandy smallmouth in there, but that they're tough to find after they have spawned.

BBB was out there a few weeks back, it was won on smallies. if you can find them, stick to that all day, and you will win it.

The type of fishing on Minnewaska is very similar to Green Lake. You should be able to use the same presentations on there as you did on Green. (i seen pictures of you holding smallies in the picture post) From what i found this lake is loaded with smallies so you know the drill with them hard bottom. grin

Bass Bonanza was out there but the winning team won on Largemouth. Actually there was very few Smallmouth weighed in. Typically largemouth win events on that body of water after the spawn is done.

The lake is loaded with dandy largemouth and smallmouth. It'll probably take a 3.5lb average to win right now. The bulk of the smallmouth finished spawning about 3 weeks ago and should be ready to really feed, but don't ignore the largies. We won the Wed. night tournament last week and pulled over 20 3pounders off of one small spot in a short period of time. We had a hair under 17lbs. total on 5 fish. You'll have a good time out there.

It is true, the smallmouth have really started to blow up in that lake. I feel more comfortable fishing for the largemouth out there, mostly because I have primarily fished them in the past. It's a great lake and a lot of fun to fish.

the term "pros" is used alittle too loosely around here I prefer to call them boaters. any yahoo with a checkbook can fish as a "pro" the ones who get paid are the only ones who are. hence the difference between professional and amature. Sorry but I have fished a few pro-ams where the boaters ask me for spots because they have not put anytime into prefishing it.

    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.
