      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 .

River Smallies

Recommended Posts

My son and I did a canoe float two days ago on the big river near Crow Wing State Park.... Below are three pic's of the larger bass that we caught... All three are 20+ inches...I weighed the first one on a small scale and it was 5 1/4 lbs... All three were probably around 5+ lbs. We also caught several in the 3 - 4 lb class... Really a great day!!!

Nice break from lake fishing and man these fish are awesome to catch in the river....

They were all caught in fast current... Really a great fight on light tackle... Fall Smallie fishing on our river systems is really terrific..

Crawdad color tubes and small yellow buzz baits.... When we would get a hit or catch a fish with a buzz bait we would slow down and fish the tubes in that same area. Worked really well. Caught good numbers of fish on both baits.

5+ lb smallies??

Thats like a 40 lb muskie! Holy [PoorWordUsage].

Got any pics on a board for verification for length?

20+ inchers are so incredibly rare on the Miss in general, its always good to see the proof!

Great fish!

I wouldn't say they are rare on the Miss, I see tons of big bass on it. Especially this time of year. Nice fish and boy is that some of my favorite fishing ever. Grew up doing it on the Huron River in SE Michigan and need to get out doing it more in the Twin Cities

Big smallies............ yes.......... 20" plus???? Not many dude. On a board properly measured, you aren't gonna see that many, Now, realize I know there are going to see some, but, they are truly a low percentage of the population. This is a fact. Age and a rough life in the river tell us this for sure....

Either way, those were some nice fish guys, nice job!

    •   Now that sounds tasty! Smoked eggs and sliced rare deer heart....with some cold smoke...um num....
    • smoke em up boys ! ! !  
    • Wowzer talk about off topic! From deer hearts to chicken eggs. What's rundave gonna think!
    • I didn't need to see it, but mayhap some technical wizards would feel more at ease with a complete detailed explanation. Also depends on how in-depth yer "crayola app" is.   
    • If the pictures weren't enough, I would have needed to resort to the Crayola app if I wanted to put it into words.
    • You forgot to add the explanation to further educate all that may need it.   The egg, poop and urine (which for a chicken isn't a liquid) exits out of the same hole (aka, the vent, as you can see above). BUT, when an egg comes out, the chicken's Cloaca is turned inside out so that the egg cannot come in contact with the intestines (fecal matter nastiness).  
    • Do the crutches come with it as well?
    • The Tri-beam and the Proveiw are basically the same ducer, just that the Proview gives you infinite ability to dial down, or up your cone angle or sensitivity. The FLX28's low power and weed modes, are the "cat's meow" when dialed in properly. Lastly the color pallet options can be great when dealing with schools of different size fish gathered in confined areas, along with giving your eyes a break from the standard red. Here's my friend Cory Bechtold explaining what I mean....    http://www.vexilar.com/blog/2014/08/28/s-is-for-suppression Don't think this could possibly work on the FLX 28.        
    • "Fine." Yer sounding a bit petulant, Delmar.  Ya know what? YOU were the one that mentioned the "dirty water" they were raised in....on a certain thread on a certain site some time ago....... I found it!   But, that doesn't matter to me. Whatever works for ya.  I just don't eat shrimp anymore because of that. And, the egg is encapsulated before it comes out the butthole....in a shell, unlike other things that come outta there, and make it into the public media.  Snack on some sliced deer heart tartare with some salt and horseradish while ya do some reading...https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/08/14/farmed-shrimp.aspx
