      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 .

Trying to locate a muskie guide on the big pond

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to locate an individual (muskie guide) I spoke several times with this past spring on the phone. Unfortunately I lost his name and phone number and for the life of me can't remember his name. I do remember the fact that he said he fished in a Ranger 618 tiller that he had extended the front deck on, and that he had sold his boat. For some reason or another the first name, Joe, keeps popping into my head. This individual just made a name for himself in the past year or so guiding muskie and was very interested in purchasing my boat this fall and that's why I need to get in touch with him. Like I said, can't remember name but I do remember the details of the boat he was fishing out of. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you want to send me a personal email or have this individual contact me my email address is: minnkotaoutdoors@msn.com

Thanks,

Corey Bohn

There are several guides that does Mille Lacs...

Steve Jonesi

Jason Hamernick

Gregg Thomas

Mike Hulbert

Thats all I can think of... Maybe its Steve Jonesi you're thinking about since his last name could be a "Joe" you keep thinking of... I heard that he had sold his boat....

Hope this helps...

Steve is fishing out of a Ranger tiller, can't remember the exact model. It's white/grey/black and has a 115 Johnson on the back. When I was out with him, he made it quite apparent he will be buried in this one.... :-)

Steve fishes out of a 620! To say he likes the boat a lot would be the understatement of understatements.

Steve got a new boat this spring, 620 with a 150 tiller I belive. Book with him you'll have a blast and if anyone can put you on fish he will.

Bret, I hope you left a little of the mojo for me...... Should be a good day, weather patterns are shifting a bit but I talked to SJ a little bit ago and he's dialed in....as usual.

    • On Friday morning I decided to take the scenic way home from work and stopped at Browns Creek, just north of Stillwater, to shake off the dust on my trout equipment. Wasn’t any signs of life in the stream! I’m wondering if the DNR wasn’t able to stock it before the opener due to the snow conditions?    Saturday morning I ventured down to the Vermillion River. I personally don’t care much for this river, as I don’t think it’s any good. But I a bible study in Rosemount in the afternoon, so I figured I’d give it a go. Water was high, fast and dirty. Didn’t catch anything. Neither did anyone else I talked to.   Not the start to the trout season I had hoped for 
    • Just a matter of time then I would think. One of them will make a mistake and end up down the end of your gun barrel. It would keep my faith up just knowing there are that many around. Good luck.      
    • Hakuna matata on my deck
    • BBD!  More to come...
    • Bought from private seller; my mistake should have been one thing to check; there is no wiggling it at all, it’s frozen in there tried torching it to no avail; put everything back together hoping I could grease and crank up and down but the zerk keeps coming off, and now it doesn’t lower at all; will have to bite the bar and bring it in
    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
