      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 .

? for outdoorswomen

Recommended Posts

I am a newly single outdoorsman who is wondering if anyone else thought there should be a forum here for outdoorsmen looking for outdoorswomen?

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'm really not sure how many single women are on this site but I agree this forum is not a dating forum. But good luck with the fishing partner search, anyfishwilldo! grin

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'll keep an eye out then... adding green to my stuff wont hurt a bit... but of course, pink and black takes the priority!

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!

    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too.
