      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 .

I don't think it is a blue but then I'm not sure what it is.

The few blues I have seen pictures of definitely have a blue hue to them.

Found this on another forum, evidently caught recently in Richardson Lake, Canada. Could just be a regular walleye with a really pronounced blue hue though.

Had to ask being that I just like eating smile walleye. What is this? It had a tiny dorsal fin, very little white along the tail and also not a spot on the tail or anywhere else. The eye was the size of a 50 cent piece.

27x13.5 keep in mind I'm almost 6'4 270 I seem to make fish look small frown

After looking at all the pics posted earlier in this thread I would have to agree that it is a sauger. It has been so long since I caught one that I thought this one with the black on it was different then the ones I remember catching up at LOTW.

I must not catch enough Sauger to know any better. But what makes that a Saugeye? I woulda just called it a Sauger. Nice fish by the way!

Here is a small one I caught yesterday on pool 2. Small but I thought the very black tint was interesting. Darkest one I ever caught. Looked solid black when I brought it out of the water.

I think you are correct it is a saugeye. I was thinking it was a very dark sauger but the gold color and a little white on the tail says it all. First saugeye I have caught. Will have to pay more attention in the future.

Thanks

You never know, that could be a full on state record sauger! Whatever it is, it's a nice one.

I dont know of course but from looking at the pic it looks like a walleye or maybe saugeye more than a true sauger but thats just from looking at a pic on the computer.

I think Captain Fireman was pretty sure it was a Saugeye as it had a white tip on the tail.

You really never know though until you take DNA samples. I read an article from out West somewhere about a huge Walleye that later turned out to be a Saugeye after the DNR did some testing, and is the now the current record. Can’t tell at all by looking at the picture that is was a saugeye. It looked just like a walleye.

It was a saugeye, no DNA test needed and it was CPRed

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
