      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 .

It's always too long before the season starts... Even one day before is too long. The North Metro chapter of MI is having a banquet on January 31, 2009. At least these events can give some relief to the muskie blues. Google the web site to check out the details.

Let's see here, i've:

-Watched all my video's

-Watched all my friends video's

-Sharpened all my hooks

-Recieved all my reels back from getting tuned up/repaired

-Made plans for a new-to-me boat by opener

-Made plans for several trips up north

-Driven my wife crazy yapping about "wishing i could go fishing"

-Been to a store once per week to browse

-Made a list of stuff to get at the shows

I hear ya Ace!!! Making plans now to head down to Kincaid and fish some muskies with Chad Cain, but that still seems like a long wait!!!!! shocked

JRedig........I have done that before. Went out to Alex with a buddy and he had a dark house setup. Saw a few muskies float through the hole, and a couple of those were beauts! It is not a good idea to do however, only makes matters worse!!!! crazy

Hey Cjac,

You will absolutely love Texas bass fishing.

Some of the hottest bass lakes on the planet right now, are in Texas.

I used to go down there every year back in the day. Unfortunately my legs just can't take it anymore. Lake Fork is a must do, anytime you're in Texas.

Have a great time!

Thanks Ace,

Lake Fork and the surrounding Wood County lakes is exactly where we're headed! Biggest expense is gas, and with the prices where they're at now, it's too good of a trip to pass up! Look for a convoy of Chevy trucks and Skeeters on March 6th headed down I35! They get a lot over 6lbs every year, some over 8 and have hit the 10lb mark a few times. Should be fun and I'll certainly learn a TON!

I just have to get my back in line first, still recouping from the 2 surgeries. That's the best incentive there is to get my body in shape!

Delmut... the project is going along SLOWLY... cant really do much on it right now with the cold temp and all the snow...

Motor is now on a stand in the garage... I need to get all the gears and the shafts from old lower unit out and transplanted into the new lower unit housing...

Will be using the next 3-4 months to order everything I need including epoxy resin, marine plywood, fiberglass, wires, hydraulic steering, carpeting, seats, etc etc to get the boat back to pristine condition... I will also build and install a livewell measuring 61" long, 29" wide, and about 14" deep... just never know when you would need one... and it could double as built-in cooler or whatsoever... and it'll also be the top for extended casting deck... thats the only major change I can think of...

Once the snow melts... and the temp hits 60's the boat will be all I will do til shes done and running... dont think I'll be doing any fishing til shes done...

    • 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. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
