      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 .

Lake Mary. Hoping to maybe get out for an hour or two but not sure there will be time and not bringing boat so will have to use pontoon if I want to get out. 250' dock sounds like an all day deal...

I know the word this week! While I may or may not target bass this weekend, I definitely will be throwing some big baits. 23" is a definite possibility.

I'm glad our 40' dock does the trick, as pulling that up the bank can be a chore. Luckily it can be removed without going in the water, so we leave in until the last minute.

Maybe a Catfish guy might have to throw up a 23 this weekend wink

Yep, that's right. I might break out my Bass gear.

You guys in the shiny boats, look out for flying 4ozers and scattering stinkbait grin

Oh well, gotta do it. Will be nice to get out of town none the less. I hope I can get out for a couple hours at least. Not sure if Mary is a great bass lake or not.

Our club has fished Mary a few times and we catch alot of bass, but there are alot of seven to eight pound bags weighed in. There has to be some bigger fish in there, but we really haven't found them.

Based on the wind in the forecast, I might skip the bigger muskie waters and hit a couple smaller bass lakes close by home, they have been empty!

"MEA Yeah!" it is...... I was corrected in another post that it's now called Ed MN, so I'll write both out!

Caught a fat,fat,fat 21"er tonight that had to push 7lbs. Out by myself and no camera. My bet is someone will catch that 23"er this weekend. Good luck to all---.

Me and my buddy had one of those weekends people only dream of. Caught a ton of 18-19" fish. here are some pics. Nothing that hit 20", but we caught around 15 fish that were right at about 19"

this was the first of 5 doubles in a row. Every fish was between 18 3/4" and 19 1/2". I figure the school had about 70 smallies in it and most were right in this size range. I did however see some chasing hooked fish that were over 20".

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
