      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 .

Catfish Caption Contest Week 7 Submit your Entries

Recommended Posts

Since the open water Catfish season is winding down, I thought I'd try something different to keep things active here.

I have a few small prizes that I can send out to each weekly winner.

The rules are simple, I will post a photo, and you will post the best caption you can come up with. Please submit only one entry.

On Wednesday, I will pick the top 5 and create a poll and everyone will get to vote on their favorite. Voting will be open until midnight on Sat.

Let's have some fun with this and please remember, this is a family site, so keep them clean, I will delete any captions that are inappropriate smile

Also, if anyone has a funny or "outtake" Catfish photo they would like to have me use, please send that to me via the email in my signature. I don't have very many to use, so I'm hoping to get several.

Week 1 Winner--> Crazyice

Week 2 Winner--> Capt Fireman

Week 3 Winner --> Deitz Dittrich

Week 4 Winner --> ezwalt

Week 5 Winner --> AceintheHole

Week 6 Winner --> Wildcatcreek

Hey shack - That was great. That could be hard to beat. You have to be a fan of Teletubbies but the caption sure fits the picture. The names fit those two also - Dipsy and Laa-Laa. I think we should give them those Nicknames. All in Favor signify by saying "Eh-Oh - Teletubies love each other very much". laughlaugh

Al-Qaeda terrorists posing as cat-fishermen were caught below the airport runway using illegal baiting tactics (explosives) to catch 50 lb + catfish.

As Darren and Brian prepared to do battle at the "thriller on the River", they donned their team uniforms and posed for a quick photo. In a couple seconds they will enter the river and battle for the championship. The first man to emerge from the depths with any part of a catfish in his mouth will be crowned the champion. They have their mouth warmers snapped to help keep some dexterity in their lips before entering the chilly water and to hide any surgical alterations they've undergone since their last bought. The league is still considering banning these alterations in the spirit of the sport.....but until then it will continue to create some interesting grilles among the contestants.

WWG is still in rehab after dislocating his jaw trying to bring up the entire fish at last weeks quarterfinals. His artificial barbed teeth would not allow him to retreat after the initial bite. Hopefully we don't have any similar mishaps tonight. When asked about the incident WWG just simply stated "I was hungry".... The two finalists here tonight didn't get here by trying to bite off more than they can chew....this should be a match for the ages.

As seen in this picture, the red dog developed a deformed ear after eating too many fish from the Minnesota River.

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
