      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 .

No idea JR... no seats offered yet... although I'd definitely LOVE it if I could go out and see if I can catch one for 2008 tho... keep the streak of at least one muskie each year alive...

weekends are awesome because i get to fish somewhere besides Sugar, you know, lakes that don't suck. can't complain about the mild temps and beautiful evenings we've had this month out there though. not sure what the destination is yet but it's going to be on like donkey kong!

if anyone is heading to sugar, the south ramp is closed for the season. if you usually use the south ramp, you've probably got better places to fish near you anyway......

good luck finding a spot rebel, if i was going to be in the metro i'd offer but looks like i'll probably be heading the other way.

Plan on hitting the water for 'skis on Saturday evening, and then the big river for walleyes and sauger on sunday morning. Hopefully both will produce!

While I plan on getting out a couple more times this year yet I have Buck Fever too bad right now. I've hardly gotten to bowhunt yet and this is getting to be Primetime. Thus my time will be soaked up in the deerstand this weekend.

Living life one day at a time......

Heading out tomorrow afternoon in the TC area. Smaller lake, so we should be able to hit a shallow pass or two and see if the last couple mild days pushed a few fish back up top, then hit the deep weedline if that doesn't pan out.

Sat and Sun are up in the air at this point. I'm sure I'll get out one of them if not both. The Vikes game is a GREAT excuse to head out on the water!

Sure thing Bigeye... that sounds good... my email address is in my signature...

What kind of a boat... why I ask is because I visited French about 2 weeks ago... and the water was very LOW at the launch... wouldnt want to have any problem with launching ur boat... if you know what I mean...

I'll shoot ya an email tomorrow and we can figure out a time etc. I know the lake is down some but we shouldn't have any trouble getting on the water, it's a 1775 pro-v on a roller trailer so that always helps. I've launched in some pretty shallow water and am not really afraid to back the rig in far enough so we should be good. Next weekend is open for me, shouldn't really be any traffic on the water as it deer opener so either Sat or Sunday works. heck we could even go on a muskie tour if you wanted to. If we don't suceed on French we can bomb up to the metro and finish it out up there. I'll shoot you an email and we can figure everything out.

    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
    • They make mounts where the TV sits out a little further and you can mount a couple smaller appliances to the mount behind the TV with straps.  Not an option for some as the TV may stick out a few more inches but worth considering if you don't want a separate cabinet. 
    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
