      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 .

Anyone ever have a bass or pike attack a bobber?

Recommended Posts

I caught a 7# bass on a red & white Oreno. It had just hit the water, I didn't even get a chance to flip the bail on my reel yet. So, I was wondering if anyone has had a bass or a pike or anything attack a red & white bobber.

No....but one time, I was reeling in this little bass that interupted my walleye fishing, and a big northern just slammed it and then followed it all the way to the boat, taking free shots at it. I couldn't believe something would want to eat those stinky slimey things. It was aweasome

Big bass by the way

Up in Canada I had a pike strike my Gapen bobber about 3 times, once we actually had him on for 30 seconds before he/she let go of the bobber. Still has teeth marks in it, we did catch the pike, it was about 30".

52...Nice fish. I've had that happen alot of times...especially when I have been fishing a small bobber for panfish. Usually the pike cut me off and then I just go pick up the bobber...they hit it and spit it out, but 4# test doesn't hold up well to the wickedly sharp, triangular pike teeth. Must just make them mad?

For the record, the biggest LMbass I ever seen was caught on a red and white Bass-o-reno. This was years ago, on a little lake out toward Minnetonka somewhere? I was a 12 year old kid, couldn't remember the lake, but the guy that used to rent the rowboats was named Archie? The guy that caught the fish was my friends dad, Angel Relopez and he weighed it at Browns Market on Hy #55...and I remembered how much it weighed 9 pounds.

He had one mounted on his wall that was just as big, also taken on a Bass-o-reno. I'm not sure what the state record is, but in retrospect, I bet he had a couple of state records and never gave it a thought.

Congrats on the nice fish 52.

I have a couple of old oreno's that I inherited from my dad. Finally pulled them out of my tackle box to make room. May have to give it another try before I retire it.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
