      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 .

I have my sisters college grad party that day, but I may be able to sneak away to the river around dark. I'm sure Larry and Dtro would appreciate my money.

Even though I have fished every Moore's cat night last year and this year, this will be the first night money will be on the line.

I figure Pool 2 has a flat and a channel with money on it wink. I have first hand info on where the channels have been biting and a nice flat has been caught. That all I have to say about this wink.

Heck, even if I got $7.00 back on my $10.00, it would be worth the bragging rights to be in the money on a Mooore's contest grin. I just have to get down town before the cut off mark and this weekend that will happen wink.

I missed out on second place during the last contest by 45 minutes cry, I will be darn if I will let it happen again.

Well,

Went down, bought some hooks, talked with Bob and signed up KQ#1 and my self for this Saterday.

Bob has a very nice and clean place.

Due to the 35W mess, I thought it was going to be hard to find, but I came in the back way from Nicollet and hit up 58th (turn by Bobby and Steves Auto world) and go threw about 2-3 stops signs and when you get to the lights, boom he is right on the right.

Its right accross from a haunted house style funeral home grin. Man that is a big house.

Anyways, Thanks Bob for the Help today and it was nice meeting ya. We will see ya when I collect my winnings grin

O.K. grin

I guess I will call Bob to get the info on Thursday and set up a time I can go down and pick up my winnings on Monday. whistle. he was busy when I went in, but we still got in a little chatting, then I had to go. I forgot to ask.

Even the best have to fall sooner or later wink.

If anything, I am going for the channel class. I got that feeling we will have a great night on Saterday down town.

No need to call him, he doesn't give that information out till later this week. Try him on Saturday when he has things lined up. I might even join in on this one, but still waiting for my co-angler to give me a call back. Had a problem locating the target species the other day, but them Carp sure put up some fights. We have been able to catch them on the walleye contests, so how hard could it be when you are actually looking for them crazy

With the water down, the the turtles biting the other day, it should be a fun time to be on the water.

Rumor has it that the contest is going to fill out. If you haven't already registered, then you better get to Moore's and get 'er done soon.

Thanks to everyone who is fishing this contest for donating your money to Pierbridge and I.

    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
    • I don't know about that but I will certainly not write him off, if he can be a steady vet I will be happy. 
    • That's a great chicken recipe duff, but that steak n corn get my vote!! 
    • I was gonna say my yard has been thick with juvenile birds the last few days, always harder to ID birds this time of year. Had an albino something or other with a flock of birds, not sure I've seen an albino bird before. And just had a sharp shinned hawk hanging out on the branch above the feeders.  But I feed ALL of the birds......love them raptors. I will say the cowbirds around sure tolerate the dog or I getting pretty close to them.    
    • Had a decent trip.  We fished the evening of Aug. 9-Aug. 15.  Had 2 pretty good days, 2 bad days, and the rest were just so-so.  Dad, Uncle, and Grandpa don't like getting up early anymore so we usually outdrink the fish at night and sleep in mornings.   We have slowly been learning how to consistently catch fish on this lake.  The local guys don't provide any information and neither do the guys that have been making the trip for 20+ years.  Can't say I blame them much, but would have shortened the learning curve for us a little bit.  We found a bay a few years back that we can catch 10-16" walleye all day in, just a shallow weedy bay pulling spinners.  Usually get enough eyes' for dinner and then go search the reefs, shorelines, and islands for bigger fish.   I think we finally dialed in on some bottom bouncers and have 2-3 spots were we can go and most likely catch fish with the chance at some big ones.  1oz to 1-1/2oz BB with leeches or worms work the best on these spots.  2 spots are reefs topping out at 9-10fow and the other spot is a little flatter, with access to some shallow weeds.  We also deep troll suspended fish some evenings and don't catch a lot, but the ones we do are bigger fish.  We found iwe caught more fish when we were running and gunning.  Fish a spot for 20-30 minutes and then move on until we found some fish.  This kind of stinks for Grandpa but he understands we can't catch them if they are there and active. Biggest of the week was 26 1/4" walleye with 20-25 eyes' over 20".  I think I had 2 -25" and also a 37" pike the last evening.  Really fun time and scenery with the family.  Looking forward to next year and searching more of the lake.
    • Not a cowbird. We have several around here and they are generally dark-black grey and brown. The pictured bird almost looks as though it could be an immature yellow headed blackbird. Cowbirds are quite reclusive and we have been surprised they come out to our feeders, but they have become pretty regular customers. Like the deer that graze in the front yard. Last night we had the buck, doe and twin fawns and even though we talked softly to them they did not spook,  but seemed to simply acknowledge our presence on the deck and continued to feed. And of course, as usual, the black squirrels are gathering all MY walnuts!  darn.....I just can't win. The chipmunks eat my strawberries, deer eat tomato plants and squirrels eat my walnuts. I'm left with this old bottle of Beefeaters, a small bottle of vermouth and a few olives in a jar.  Things are tough out here in the wilderness.
    • Quincey should be a solid guy. I don't recall watching him play, but by looking at his stats over the years it appears to be an upgrade over Scandella.
