      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 lose a topwater lure on Orchard Lake?

Recommended Posts

I was on Orchard in Lakeville going for some tigers this weekend and set the hook on what turned out to be a topwater lure with a leader and about 10 yards of green Power Pro. If your missing one let me know! I know what it's like to lose a god bait so I'd be happy to give it to it's owner. Just let me know what it is and where you lost it. You can email me at mmwaschek@charter.net

Not as good as you, that's for sure!

I had a few follows but nothing in the boat. I switched to bass out of frustration and had a blast in the lilly pads with scum frogs.

No Problem. Every kind act creates another. Sooooo, if I can find the owner of this lure, I'm hoping that someone can get me back the upper 40" musky that I lost on Vermillion grin

Thats too bad. I wasnt really expecting to catch anything when i went out, but then again isnt that when you usually catch em'. Im want to try to get out there one of these upcoming weekends. For a small lake once the sun comes up it sure gets busy fast.

Bonefish,

That's funny, I bet it's one of 3 my nephew lost fishing with my buddy. I told a co-worker about their trip and he said I should check out the forum.

I'm not sure what one you found but my nephew told me he lost a black topwater with a prop up front as one of the three!! If that's it, my buddy called it his hot bait!!

Keep it!! I'll rub it in when I see him tonight!!

Hey midex,

Scum Frogs are a soft plastic bass topwater lure. Weedless, and fun to fish with. You work them in and around the heavy cover, sometimes the thickest you can find.

Fun way to fish for sure!

Cjac is right. They are totaly weedless. I throw them into the middle of a lilly pads patch with no problem. It just skims across the tops becasue the hooks are actually on teh top of it. Crank accross the weeds and stop when you his a patch of open water, give it a few twitches, and hang on! I love hooking one on for my 6 year old. No snags and alot of topwater excitement.

    • Well, you could be right!
    • Yes, this is great to watch for kids born around '66 still in diapers and missed it on TV! 
    • Only tink bacon is good for are BLT'S.
    • As with most Ken Burns series, it's been very interesting and entertaining to watch. After seeing the same old footage for the last 40 years, the new stuff is facinating.  '66 kid here, it's amazing to me that this occurred during my lifetime. I hope some of folks put your aversion to PBS aside and enjoy  watching some history. Maybe even learning a  thing or two about it. *chuckle*
    • Juice and bear, they are a pair.  Space Aliens and Chiropractic. 
    • We have dish at the lake, and suspend it for 9 months.  Only turn it on in the summer.   5 bucks a month while suspended.  
    • Sometimes you can get a small discount, but buying at a place that also does service might be worth considering....  
    • I've had them most of the summer. The last two weeks I have not seen them.
    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
