      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 .

fall transition

Recommended Posts

any suggestions on the help in chisago area lakes for fall transition. last week fish still deep on rock and hard spots. spent monday on chisago and found one out of 5-6 rocks that had summer fish on them. did manage about 15-20 bass with some nice ones(3-5 range),but not like it is in the summer time. water temp 74-76. this time of the year they start to scatter but it amazes me how fast the fish move or shut down on the deep stuff.

huh. well alright. later in the cooling process the deeper fish start to move shallow in the pads, slop, wood and docks. flipping pads gets a lot better with the weeds dying off. i also slow drag jigs on the remaining weeds left(not very much or good ones around here). also the usual throwing reaction type baits along the bank. but i find it hard when the fishing is so good during the summer, but struggle in the spring and fall.

I think this fall is going to be different then in the past years. With the water temps not being what they should be and the lack off weeds on lakes the fish didn't seem to make it out as deep as they normally do. I'm not sure what this will do to the fall bite, but I think it might move them up a little earlier as they will not have as far to travel. The other option is for them to just stay out where they are (which is not as far out as they should be) until really cold water hits. Could be interesting fall.

sicheneder- I dont think the fish have moved from their summer haunts yet. You may have just fished some tough weather pattern... Keep in mind also, this year if very strange in that at least in the Chisago Lakes area out lakes are as low as I have ever... EVER seen them. So, the deep spots really arent deep spots any more. I have caught fish this year in areas I wouldnt even think of fishing normal years.

Fall is time for shallow rocks, and inside(green) weed bends... Dying pads as well... but were going to need some cooler temps before that starts to happen...

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
