      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 .

HuntFishTV show...

Recommended Posts

Hey all, we get quite a few questions on fishing deep water in Minnesota. I had the chance to fish with Andy of HuntFishTV and we did a little show on metro bass fishing, and aiming at deep water. Maybe this will create more questions, but I hope it helps a few people out. Andy, thanks for the fun day!

For those that want to see the show, its on the main http://www.fishingminnesota.com page. The top video is a salmon trip, which also was fun, and is one of our own hotspotoutdoors videos, the second video down is the bass fishing video with HuntFishTV.

Feel free to call me a dork, I can handle it.

Great show Deitz, and some nice fish as well. I have been doing good on the deep weed edge this summer as well. This type fishing will work on almost any metro lake. Let us know if you do any more shows, I always enjoy them.

Dietz,

Finally got a chance to watch this.Very informative for us guys who live or die by the shallow water bass.

On a side note, you filled in for one of our league members on Big Marine a couple weeks ago(you fished with Josh)I had to leave shortly after weigh in, so I didn't have much time to say hello. I think I could have used some of those tips that night! I'll be at it again this weekend with the same crew on N/S center. (I hope you didn't give too many tips to

Josh!! J/K !) Anyways,really nice boat, I'll introduce myself next chance we meet.

Pagz- thanks for the kind words... Josh and I got 3rd that night on Big Marine.. and normally that lake is all about deep weeds.. however we went 2 hours without a fish that night. We ended up flipping that "Deitz Rig" into lilly pads to come up with our limit in the last hour.

I am sorry to say that I helped Josh pre-fish for the Frankies Tournament.. so he knows my spots.. LOL

I promise to never help again.. 8-)

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
