      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 .

That is certainly a good start and may be enough although I was thinking it will take a 20 win. Lake I was on the dock was out and my waders sprung a leak. I did not have any bass that topped the 19 mark. Will see how Sunday morning goes. The pike bite today was much hotter then then the bass for me.

I am unable to get out this weekend, but I did run into Shannon Olson who caught a 21.5" Bass on Chisago Lake, DT6 in 6' fow. I saw picts. He asked me to post, as his computer is down. He said he saw you out there Deitz and he will drop by later to show you the picts as he can't post them.

FYI - I was out earlier in the week and did pretty good, both size and numbers for a change.

Really nice fish Deitz.... Way to go...

I fished Gull Lake this afternoon for about 3 hours... Caught a number of nice fish on a Big White 3/4 oz Northland Spinner Bait with a white plastic trailer. Most of the fish came from the Pencil Reeds... biggest was 18.5 inches and 3 were right at 17 inchs. Also several smaller fish... Would have been a nice bag is a tournament! Had a really large fish grab my spinner next to a dock but lost her.. Would have taken a pic of her for sure... She would have given you guys a run for your money..... Hey, that's how it goes some days... Sure do love the fall fishing!!!

I did not see another person on the lake bass fishing....The boats that I did see were all fishing walleye's. I just wish I could have gotten out early this am.... I think the monrning bite would have been really good.

Will be interesting to hear how others do today.... sure did cool down this afternoon up this way.... Gull Lake is right at 60 degrees.

Good to see some nice fall bass. I did not get anything over 18 on Saturday when I was out. I did get a few pic of some 15 and 16 inchers in for practice. I had to practice and ensure I was ready when in counted.

It been some time since I posted pics and notice my avatar is even gone it been so long. I do hope to at least post my little guys so I have something to show for my time on the water.

Also once a winner is determined I will send off a Senko to the weekend champ.

Wormer,

You are supposed to have the fish laying on the board so its clearly visible on the size. Mouth closed, tail pinched.

This is what is being looked for in the pics.

    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.
