      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 .

Boat names?

Recommended Posts

Anybody still name their boat? I was thinking on it and can not for the life of me figure out what to name it. Any suggestions would be greatly accepted. If you want to see it. Page 19 of rigs for 2008. Thanks

My buddy had a boat, well more that a boat. A 32 footer that was used on Lake Superior. He named her the CINJAN. Cindy was his daughters name and Jan was his wifes name.

I got an old 14 footer that runs occasionally. I put "PUSH" stickers on the back, and "PULL" stickers on the front. That way people know what to do when she's having one of her little "temper tantrums". hehehe.

I saw a big Ranger with every top-of-the-line whistle and bell that one could put on a boat. It was hooked to a Lincoln Navigator with a custom paint job to match the metal flake of the boat and trailer. On the side of the boat was the name in at least 18 inch letters "Never Enough".

"No D... Good"

You have to look close to see it, but it is there.

Just another reminder that things you do when you are drunk and stupid stay with you for a while. I painted it on and clear coated it, so I must have ment it.

I was kinda thinkin maybe a little more possitive. My kids (11 y/o daughter and my 6 y/o boy fish with me). So far I have come up with like "Still Waters" or "Catchin'Em" I was thinking "EYE CATCHER" My wife did not really like that one. I don't know. Hopefully something will come to me.

My brother stayed with me the last 3 month's of his life, and to take his mind off his illness we researched boats on the internet. At the time I had a 1983 Starcraft that we just hated (long story), before he passed away we both decided that we liked the Lund 1650 Rebel. He sold his car and gave me the money and made me promise to buy a boat with it, so I kicked in the difference and boat the Lund Rebel. I named it " 4U Mikey ", everytime I take it fishing, I feel like he is right there with me.

Awesome story Barb, couldn't think of a better name. I'm sure he's with you everytime.

One of my grandfathers many nicknames was "Link", aka - missing link. He was one of a kind. Well when my dad bought his first boat it quickly got named "Missing Link" Each subsequent boat got dubbed missing link. A nice rememberance of my grandfather and it keeps people wondering.

One of my best friends recently inherited a big boat. He has very little boating experience and took slamming the dock once to realize boats have no brakes, lol. After watching him drive the first time he got dubbed Captain Nemo and so did his boat...

It's bad luck to have a boat with no name.

The office - this one is good in principle but it's really common.

Wet Dreams - my uncle's boat

Carson's College Fund - or your kid's name

Happy Hooker - for a fishing boat

Fuel Hater

Fraid Knot

A few years ago I bought a Sportfish fixer-upper. This boat looked like it had gone through a hurricane......so my neighbor dubbed her "Katrina". I thought it was a little insensitive at first due to all the problems in New Orleans after Katrina but it stuck.

Wo how does everyone put their names on the fishing boats? Do you just put it on the back next to the motor? I've been wanting to do it, just never got around to it. Been thinking of Lizzy Lyn after my daughter. After reading Barb's, I might have to steal a little and put "4U Dad". My Dad is still with us, but has gone through a lot and my biggest joy is taking him out whenever he's in the cities.

    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
    • any rub on it??   I got to try this!!
    • Picked up a new to me sled with only a 122 miles on it!  It's the same sled I already have Arctic Cat Panther 570 fan, which I will only use since I ice fish more then trail ride. Things in perfect shape the guy used it like 4 times with his family and has 120 compression on both sides and is Mint!  Not as pretty as the old Black and red one which has 3165 miles on it but just to nice to pass up. Old ones going on C/list now. 
    • I've got a small one waiting. Just trying to find time when I and the smoker will be in the same spot for enough hours! I have a good feeling that the week after Deer Hunting closes and Ice forms. The smoker will be doing a lot of catch up!!!
    • I wouldn't even bother going to NoDak before Nov 1. Too many yahoos. There's still plenty of guys up there later, but at least most of them are legitimate hunters
    • You can get longer but at a premium, and I'm not a huge fan because of the different firmness from back to bottom along with the groove makes sleeping awkward.  You could make one easy enough or modify a futon.  Find a used one and gut the hardware out to make your own that will blend in better.
