      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 .

Softshell Sheep Ed

Recommended Posts

So lastnight fishing I think Ed broke a new record by catching more Sheephead than Turtles on cut bait in one night!

He went 5 sheephead to only 2 softshell turtles.Which in most cases is the other way around! I think the name Sheep Ed is comming on strong!The only person that could ever pull off numbers like this on a regular basis.

So the Question is! Softshell Eddie or Sheep Ed? What do you think?

just so he don't look bad... He did manage a few cats in the mix...and helped get the boat into the water again!

We should stop boating on thursdays. Hasn't been working for either of us lately. The sheeps and turtles were average sized. Nothing like what I usually catch. wink

Depends on what kind of "jet boat " you have grin

Seriously, seen the pics, glad no-one got hurt.

I also hear from a very reliable source that someone else from the BPCL is coming over to the dark side wink

I wanted to take pics of the lastest incident, but was told to shut up and push. As for the pics of my situation.... um yeah. They are just fine on the camera. Sounds like the shore fishing thing might go down soon amongst some of us usual boaters.

I did take the big fisherman out to the lake today. We got into the green sheephead.

Yep, I did the same, but we got into more of the green shad though whistle

Anyone notice the difference between a local lake boat launch and the ones down on the rivers? grin

I am sure on a league night with a local contest rolling it can get crazy, but those times are far and few between.

I can go on and on about what I encountered yesterday crazy, but what is the use. I wish all launches could be as easy, friendly and laid back as river launches are, even on the busy days (IMO).

yep, it's funny how you end up [PoorWordUsage]'ing for an extended time at the launch with people you've never met. Out of hundreds of times I've launched on the river the past few years, I can probably count on one hand the times I got frustrated.

    • Since we are on the subject.... Has anyone every used the synthetic winch rope on their houses? I have it on my UTV winch for raising and lower the plow and love it.   http://www.amsteelblue.com/1-4-diameter/
    • Stage? More like an addiction...
    • what da matter wit ya willis???????????? oh i remember da summer camping with da boonsefarm and ripple!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I suppose you assume anyone who drinks any other wine to be a sucker falling for a marketing ploy!
    • That is fine del. A lot of people like Ripple and Boonesfarm wines too.
    • You said... "I'm not going to discuss it" and I agreed you don't need to.    Sucker for the marketing folks.     I drink what I like.   And I don't like paying way too much for whiskey that tastes no better to me.  If you are one of those super taster snobs, more power to you.  
    • I run  5/16 on my new house. My old house had 1/8 form Miltona and lasted  just over a yr. I was out the sec time of the yr and seen one was fraying a little when setting it down on the ice. After I had it on the ice I told my son  we have to change cables when we get home. Fast forward 6 hrs and crank one side up about half ways and go over to the other side and start cranking it up and the cable broke. If my head would have been in the way it would have been bad news. I had enough cable to restring it. And get it up and locked in. I went to the other side and started to crank and that one popped to. I went and got the floor jack out of the back of the pickup and jacked it up and locked it in place. I put 1/4 on when I got home that night.   I take my house in the car wash everytime I come home when its wet it. If you have bad cables change them. For me it every two yrs and thats with 5/16 inch
    • Evan Williams might be ok for the skid row drinker who is more into quantity than quality. I don't drink to excess anymore, when I have a drink I care more about how it tastes than I do about what it does to me.
