      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 .

Its time to WEAGLE!!!

Recommended Posts

Yepper... FINALLY got the 2008 monkey off my danged back... Hit Bald Eagle at about 3pm with Huey...

Hit the island... several boats there... told Huey I'd like to come back to the island and try topwaters...

but we decided to hit a secondary spot... come to think of it... I originally thought to leave my Weagle home...

then decided to bring it anyways... turns out at about 4pm, the conditions was PERFECT for topwaters...

calm lake... none to little wind... sun was low... turns out the moon was rising at the same time...

snapped on the Cash Weagle... 20-25 mins later... she hit... nice swirl and nice fight...

Huey did an excellent job netting her... Thanks, Huey, for a beautiful afternoon!!!

My first topwater fish... and my new personal best... a 44"...

Reb-

Congrats on your 44! laugh It was great to see you catch it.

You picked a location and presentation that I didn't really consider. It was cool to see that pattern succeed. It taught me something new about fall fishing. Thanks.

Huey- partial credit also goes to gut feeling!!! Like I said, everything was perfect... and frequenting this forum to pick on the minds of the experienced guys helps... along with faithfully getting Musky Hunter magazine helps too...

I do remember someone (I think it was Mike Hulbert)talking about topwaters... and he would mention several times about how topwaters can be deadly at any times as long you recognize the conditions and things should just fall into place... and that secondary spot... just looked sweet on the map... thus, taking RK's advice... if that spot looks good to you, HIT it... along with CJAC's frequent mentioning of secondary spots... theres a good reason why CJAC has more muskies under his belt compared to me laugh

Was hoping for you to catch one too... but some other times... its your turn... thanks again!!!

She's a beaut Reb. Great color and markings on her. Isn't that just the greatest feeling in the world? Didn't think I was going to get the monkey off my back at all this year, toughest year of fishing in a LONG time. This fall has been great though.

Hiya -

Woo! Congrats. Very Cool. Beautiful fish too - wow. Those spots are something.

Great that you got it on a topwater besides. That's about as fun as it gets. Too many guys put the toppies away when the water gets cold.

Now go get another one smile

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Bret... Oh yeah... the sweetest feeling!!! We'll see how the fall season goes when Im gonna go out this weekend... French on Saturday and one of the Metro Lakes on Sunday... see how it goes...

Hanson- Thanks... Lets keep the streak alive...

Luke... thanks!!! This seems to be the year of Weagles... last year it was the year of the Cowgirls... Whats next year???

JRedig... I know too bad it wasnt on pink... Everytime Luke had pink weagle... it was already sold before I could inquire Luke about it... just my luck... LOL... Maybe in 2009...

Hunter... Im definitely looking forward to that for 2009... Rmemeber... I still have those two books I borrowed from your dad...

RK...Hopefully I'll catch some more this weekend... after all... Im at a point where its easier to break my personal best... LOL... Just need more time on the water!!!

Reb, it sure took you long enough, but I say better to catch 'em at the end than at the beginning. On second thought, better to catch 'em all the way through. Very happy for you, I know you've had a tough year with the boat being out of commision. Only bad part about it is I was kind of looking forward to you shaving your head bald (if you didn't get one this year). I'd do it anyway, I think you'll catch more smile

Thanks Box, Rinc, and Boy46... Im glad too! laugh

Keith... You know how bad my luck was this year... even we got skunked on French... Still feel bad about that... and still want to hit French w/ u and Hunter again and kick her butt next time around... I know... you're not the only one hoping I'd go zero this year and go bald... Notice that I didnt even do my hair the way I usually do... maybe thats the thing... *shrugs*

Luke Breyer... care to elaborate on Propster's theory... whether going bald helps with more catches??? whistle

It certainly hasn't helped me this year.

Spending 6 weeks in CA and not fishing may have something to do with that also

Larry -

Nice work. I got your text a bit late - my phone died cause I took a header into the slop with the cell phone while duck hunting.

That's a pretty fish. I was shooting ducks out there yesterday and kept telling my brother I should have been hurling a bait in between the decoys.

take care - erik

    • 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.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
