      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 .

Do you know what the topic of the seminar is? Or is that decided at the last minute by Gregg? I might possibly attend. Thanks for the heads up.

Hanson, I think the topic is "Blueprints of Musky Success."

If I find out otherwise I'll be sure and post. Hope you can make it.

I think Greg is a special guide, he seems so grounded and he speaks more to the truth than most. Seems like his blueprint to success runs true. Fish good water at whatever time of the day the pattern is showing. smile M.B.

Thanks 50inch. I saw that was the title, but was just curious if you knew anything more specific about the discussion. "Blueprints of Musky Success" could include a discussion of a lot of different things, should be interesting anyway.

Yeah, did ya like my 2nd post there? Ha - I figured you could read as well as the next guy, I just wasn't sure what to say.

I have not attended any of his clinics or fished with him before so I'm not sure about the methodology, but like Buck said, he seems like a pretty straight shooter and whatever he's doing seems to be working.

Hopefully someone who's seen him speak before will weigh in.

I've seen gregg talk a few times and spent some time talking 1 on 1 with him. Very straight shooter, imo. Very excited and serious about muskies. I don't think he inflates anything, if it's worked for him, he'll tell you so it can hopefully work for you.

I think you guys will see me there, someone bump this thread closer to the date or i'll never remember...

Just a reminder guys - lots of fun musky stuff to do during the winter between the St. Cloud, Chapter 54, the Metro chapters of MI, and the FM chapter.

Anyone checking out Road Rules this weekend? Remember, women are free, DeBo.

I have fished with Gregg a couple times and have attended his musky road rules seminar and on the water workshop. I think he is very down to earth, knowledgeable, and willing to help other people with fishing.

It was a good time, Gregg gave away a full day trip and talked about short line trolling, eels and tubes, and a couple other things. I was impressed by his genuine concern and enthusiasm for the resource here in MN and his support was much appreciated by St. Cloud MI.

    • There’s a nice stretch of warm weather. I just wonder if it’s enough to melt our local lakes by opener    Then the fish have to spawn
    • Got gobbles off the roost and they are now on the ground.
    • Allready hear them 
    • Thank you jets for stomping us, we clearly needed to be put out of our misery. 
    • 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...
