      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 .

I just don't think this the forum you want. In other words the wrong web sight. Good luck other wise, and use this forum for what it's supposed to be, to visit and share information.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I agree that here is probably not the best place for this type of forum, however I think it is a great idea! I think it would be awesome if there was a place for single's with our common interests (me included) to go and meet people. It's a hard game to be playing the older a person gets to try and find and meet new people with similar interests! Good Luck! smile Maybe at some of the future FM get togethers a singles meet and greet or something like that could be organized to help some of the single's get aquainted?

I agree, it's hard to find people really into the outdoors anymore...except here for sure... smile they should have a forum spot for that. Good luck finding your next fishing buddy! wink.

Well... people are doing it already... some are offering free seats... some are asking for free seats... and its an excellent way to make some good friends... I know I'll probably have a spot or two free once I finish my boat... but then again... not many wants to go muskie-fishing...

I havent met a fat guy in a pink/blue camo dress... but that could change sooner or later... grin

Ok, if you ever need someone to go musky fishing with, ask! I would love to do that!!! I have never caught one in my life but have tried a few times! So let me know if you have an open seat, I'll pick up drinks, gas, whatever. smile

Being a transplant from ND I would say a good percentage of my freinds in MN have come from this site in the last couple of years. We all share the same interests and haven't met an FM member I didn't like yet. Open seats work great, I always offer up an open seat. Just don't bring that pink/blue camo dress with you. laugh

Even though I am a female, I dislike the color pink, more of a lime green fan. I actually grew up next to Shamineau if you know where that is, somewhat known for muskies (not much else anymore, kinda a dead sea). A couple of my mom's husbands friends have pulled some monsters out of there. So, yeah, I am so up for it! I have to warn you, I try to out fish any guy I fish with, call it the feminist in me smile.

Would Chartruese suffice??? I dont think I have any lime green lures...

Yes I know where Shamineau is... and as far as I know... its still a good lake to fish for muskies if you know where to fish...

Outfish me? I welcome it... Given my luck... it wouldnt be any surprise if you outfish me ALL day... grin

I'll still find a green one though, just in case smile. Actually, the funny thing is, I have the best luck with greens when I fish. Pink is a close second I will admit.

I actually realized I have nothing really for muskies, I should stock up. I'm more concerned about getting some ice fishing gear. I mooched off my ex last winter and feel bad not getting my own this year.

Like I said, just bring your fishing license, camera, sunglasses, and yourself... I basically have everything (rods/reels, lures, leaders, proper release tools)... basically, its something like this "Mi barco es su barco" (although the boat's coming home with me grin)... as long you're capable of using a baitcaster, you're good to go!

    • Hey guys, it's me PGF. Been a long time since I've posted and couldn't get logged on as old PGF so I'm busted down to newbie. Anyhoo, I saved this spear from the scrap yard and was wondering if you guys had any idea where it might have been made? It has MK or MN i think stamped near the business end. It's hard to tell for sure what letters they are. Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks
    • Maybe Fisherman's Corner in Duluth?
    • I believe superior shooter supply carries what you need, try giving them a call, but on a search myself they do not seem to carry black powder but they may be able to point you in the right direction ?
    • Been there done that . I have 2 CGI s and 1 Wright Mcgill Tony Roach ( Eagle Claw) . When I set them up outside the wind would spool the line off and of course get snagged in the nut holding the spool in place. I made a brass rod about 3 in with a loop on the end and fastened to the reel. I run the line through the loop. It helps quite a bit. The drag is another matter.
    • third season coming up for my #8's.  Once in a great while I might wrap on the button but very rare. My pointer finger keeps the line in place. Free spool??  I aint got time for that, LOL. 
    • Taking tomorrow off...  We will see what happens as this front pushes in.  Hopefully it gets something on its feet.
    • Just wondering what people use for portable chairs. Bucket, fold up, tripod, etc. Been looking at some nice fold up chairs with a padded swivel seat. But they are 11 pounds each. I want to stay as light as possible. I also have a tripod chair but don't really like a post riding up my crotch. 
    • I like my Eagle Claw. My only gripe is that because there is no hole for the line to go through it will come over the OD of the main spool and get wrapped around the release button. Then I end up having to loosen the button until it comes off. The line will then be free and then have to put the button back on and re-tighten it. I like the composit material because it is not cold to the touch when using bare hands. I also use my finger as a drag to control the free spooling. Sometimes it will spin too fast let out too much line.
    • that's part of the reason I didn't jump on this one cause I thought you yanking a chain or two...
    • There's a few good videos on the tube for ideas.
