      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 .

The last few reports or posts I have written or participated in "last week in ELY" and "Blue lake Blahhhs" both fishing reports got over a hundred views before they even got a responce.

Without feedback and or comment, it is understandable that people are not posting newer reports.....

Guys, this is typically the slow season on the internet forum. Most members are spending a lot more time outdoors. I was out this morning on Bald Eagle. Fished a while and had to get off the lake cause the wind was really starting to whip up pretty good. After the storms last night, the fishing wasn't really good.

Guys, this is typically the slow season on the internet forum. Most members are spending a lot more time outdoors.

Actually I find that my unsatisfied hunger for open water fishing (after sitting around all winter drooling about it) has worn off to a different level.

I've gone on a couple really nice trips and have caught some nice fish. Now, with the weather getting HOT (yuck!) I find I'm a little less interested in getting out. And besides, my "honey do" list was getting out of control eek

I know some of you guys will go out in just about anything, but for me May, June, Sept, and Oct are the months I enjoy fishing the most and I try not to let other things get in the way.

I'll still go out now if I get the chance, but I don't give it as high a priority as my prime months. Put another way, I don't neglect as much responsibility during the summer like I do during "prime time."

I'm on the net every day anyway so it's easy, and fun, to keep up to date on the posts. I do miss the volume of posts this time of year. Just because I don't get out as much doesn't mean I'm less interested in the sport.

Okay, I went out on a small local lake Thursday. Fish count 2 eyes, one 19" one 16", 2 nords too small to talk about, 2 small bass. I guess I am in a "2" rut. Doesn't matter though, the walleye sure tasted good for dinner.

Nothing exciting, but here's a report for you. Went out with a friend yesterday from 12-3 and we pulled in 22 bass. All were between 14-17". They were all caught in 8-12 FOW on an outside weedline on a wacky rig. It was tough conditions with the wind, but we were actually glad there was a "breeze" because otherwise the heat would have been a lot worse.

I do think it would be nice if some of the "looky looo's" would add a post or two. Lets see as I sit here there are 187 registered users, and 421 guests viewing the site. A lot of people looking to find some "free information" and not give anything back.

Yea, it would be nice if everyone would register. You would be suprised what you can add here. Even if you don't think it's much you will be contributing. I still post during summer a lot. I have to sit in the office everyday and this keeps me going.

    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
    • Never heard of it. I was looking to see what kind of Side Arm you needed a cooler for?  
    • Just as easy with Dish as Direct, as someone else mentioned I would look at the Tailgater from DISH, It will automatically lock onto the sats. I bought mine from DISH, it included a receiver and was about $300.  Then it is $7/month when you want to use it, they also prorate that $7 for a part of a month or day or week. We use it fishing and at hunting camp.
    • Maybe!!! those are the company dishes!! Actually just took them out of the dishwasher and it wasn't chow time for da hounddogs yet!!
    • Looks good, but you aren't serving it in Dog bowls are you?
