      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 .

Operation Muskie less than a week a way!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Well boys, this time next week I will be up on LOTW fishing as part of Operation Muskie. I am hoping that the fish cooperate with us, and the veterans catch some big girls. Can't hardly believe that it is finally here, after a year and a half of planning. Seems like forever ago when Dick and I started this whole thing. I just wanted to give a big THANK YOU to anyone and everyone who donated or helped out in any way, big or small. This is a trip of a lifetime for most of these veterans and I think that they well deserve it. There are a couple of veterans who have never caught a muskie before, and some that have never been on LOTW before. I am sure they will fall in love with it. I surely think it is paradise! Anyways...we have some great guides coming in and it should be a blast. I got pretty lucky with my guides, actually very lucky. See what you think:

Day 1: Pete Maina

Day 2: Pete Maina

Day 3: Dick Pearson

Day 4: Steve Jonesi

Pete will also have a film crew up there and will be doing an episode of The Next Bite on Operation Musie to be aired in the future!

Thanks for helping get the guys out on the water Bret, I know the first thing my Nephew wanted to do was get on the water, it really means allot to those guys, Pete's gonna be a blast for them and Dick is an American Muskie Icon, that Jonesi fella is one of the funniest best guys you'll ever meet and the guy is a great fisherman to boot, good luck and have a great safe trip.

Thank You

John Underhill

    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.
