      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 .

Meet and greet, beer too?

I propose the first of maybe several get togethers for the muskie crowd here. I'd love to spend an afternoon talking about these "stupid" fish with some other crazies like me over a few brewskies. Maybe do a few of these this winter, see how idea's and reflections change with time.

So, would Sunday Decemeber 21st work for anyone? Say 1pm till ____ at Decoy's in WBL. Chime in if you can make it or with a different date.

It would best to get a possible head count ahead of time to let them know.

We could also do a mini lure swap each time as well, I know I have stuff I could get rid of.

Jeff, you have a serious musky hangover.

Hopefully I'll be jerking some walleyes on the river that day but if not I might stop in. It would be nice to meet a few of you guys around the WBL area.

I'll be at the relatives that weekend. Sounds like a good idea though. I got some lures that I'm sure could find a better home. Something about owning 600 lures and only being able to use 1 at a time.......and maybe 3-4 in a day, lol.

Yes sir, that was me. Was that friday or saturday? Which ever, it was a fun day! Never thought I'd use my boat as an ice auger to open up a casting hole quite like that. I ended up finding a couple fish up shallow on the inside edge that day, but they wouldn't eat. Ended up finally finding some bait balls off the break too, but no bigger fish that wanted to show for me.

I'd think all that noise would spook them off, but I saw a couple guys fishing suckers boat two fish right by some other guys doing laps of their fishing hole.

yeah, we trolled by ya, as u were casting that edge, all kinds of bait off that edge, i really thought that ice would dissapear later that day, have seen it before, where at about noon, it magically disappears and you can start fishing,not that day, that was last Sat.

Now now Erik, they're not that bad. I really should've thrown that thing more this year, I never gave it a fair chance. Maybe i'll paint it black and try it next year! smile

I think I can make it....

Being unfirmilliar with the cities, how do you get there from 694?

Take 35E north.

Exit on HWY 96, go east.

When you hit HWY 61, go north.

It'll be on your left side 3-4 stoplights up after on hwy 61.

Slow rollin', we'll do this again this winter/spring a few times, maybe next time!

    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
    • My son and I got 9. Should have had our limit. Lot of teal zipping around! Lot of mosquitos too!!
