      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 .

Deitz, you must of missed the first pic. It shows a quantum energy spinning reel, now he may not of been using that reel but Im guessing he was. There for it would be my quess of a soft plastic lure of some sort and not JnP.

I will guess a Tube also.

I'm here... Sorry was busy the last couple of days... First off thanks guys it was a great morning and loved every minute... I did make it out yesterday morning as well.... tried a different lake though. I caught 4 within the first 10 minutes a 19" two 18's" and a 17" all in the reeds, but that ended as fast as it started.... So I moved to deeper water, no bass but did catch quite a few nice sized pike...

Now to answer the questions:

Bait- the only thing these bass would hit was a black and silver spinnerbait. I started with a buzz-bait then switched to a Jig then switched to a senko...nothing. Finally tied on a spinnerbait thinking I'd at least find a Pike... Well that was the secret, in fact the 19" was caught where I previously fished with the jig...I even switched back to a jig thinking it was the weather that turned them on but still nothing... I love it when bass prefer spinnerbaits...

water temp: was 59 degrees on the lake I was fishing.

The fire extinguisher: Funny story, this spring I had a build up of ice on the cover of my boat. Well the weight of the ice made the cover sag. So I thought I would take a shovel and scoop the ice off... That was stupid, I ended up breaking the top of the fire extinguisher and it expelled all of it's contents into my covered boat.... I had a quarter inch of powder every where in the boat... So I've since moved the extinguisher, I just haven't removed the bracket from the old one...

As for the bobber and jig... Well I only clean my boat in the spring. So that is just junk collected from this summer hence the empty bottles also grin

    • Great question! The only time I've found a need to do that with the K drill, is when I drill multiple holes side by side.   Really glad I bought a K drill, super light, and fast. The way our winters seem to getting, with less and less ice; I'm considering selling the Lazer Mag. Maybe some year we'll see an old fashion MN winter with 3' of ice and tons of snow....
    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
    • After today's drubbing, I fully expect the Goph's to take the Axe and crush Wisconsin's heart next week. Seriously. Why? Because MN teams have a knack for beating the best and losing to the worst.
    • And I didn't mean to derail this thread, somebody asked about my bedtime eating habits. I view message boards like real life conversations, and when do conversations truly stay on topic 100% of the time? And speaking of, seemingly all online forums have seen a decline in participation in the last couple of years, it's not just here at HSO. Can't truly put my finger on the reason why, but it is what it is. The world is continually changing. Sorry that I can't contribute much here in the cooking forum, that's what women are for. LOL Kidding ladies, calm your teats down.
    • I will look into that.  Thank you
    • I keep it on and only fish Upper Red Lake.
      I'm spoiled
    • Sure!     https://lifehacker.com/251638/how-to-make-your-google-calendar-your-pcs-desktop-wallpaper
    • Looking to upgrade.  What are your thoughts on theses units?  Im still using my Fl8 which is at least 15 years old.  Still works great but getting a little noisy.
    • Does anyone know of a program where a person can create a calendar for your home computer?  What I would like for it to do is be your wallpaper and change automatically at the beginning of each month.
