      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 .

Insane indeed! I went on one something like that in Wisconsin Dells, it was a 1500hp jet boat ride, I wanted one of them. Although these guys are alittle more crazy!

Yowser, I would take it to Canvas craft and have them put a tent on it and you could sleep in it too and fish out the back. Get to those back waters in a hurry. Sand bar! What sand bar?

I could have used that on the river last night with all water sitting on the ice.

Now that would be a great overnight boat on the river. Looks like Darren will be traveling in style.

But you may get cat slime in it. What then?

I wanna know how they don't hit something, that was nuts. You would be for sure traveling in style, and who cares about the cat slim. I think that should be the name of the boat. Great name.

I think I would rather go to the bar and look for the drunkest guy there and ask for a ride home than ride that boat. lol

I wonder if their insurance company has ever seen that video? I expect their insurance premiums would go up about about 1000% if they ever do see it.

I wouldn't get me in that boat for that boat ride for anything. If that driver miscalculated at all in those narrow canyons at that speed and hit those rocks he would dump a lot of injured people into that swift water. That is a catastrophy waiting to happen. As Forest Gump said "Stupid is as stupid does".

Watch the video where they beach one of those, and the tools they use to free it.....would be fun but if you did get stuck you'd need the whole BP League to de-beach your new red whale. smile

If we don't beach your boat at least once this summer, John, then we're doing something wrong.

I beached my boat upstream from Jordan this year. Actually it was in sept, the water was cool and the temps outside were only in the high 40s or low 50s, so it was slightly less than ideal but not a killer.

Andy,

That's worth 10 bucks. I'll have to see what I can get you and John to do for 10 bucks this summer. :-)

One of the keys looks to be not slowing down. I think he you drop it on that sand bar there you might have a lot of pulling/digging to get it out smile

Wow Dark, those outboards must have a LOT of torque to push through that mud and crud. That looks sweeeet!

Well see how the ice skipping goes today.

The first open water channel of 2009..........might be too early, but it's not going to keep me from tiring.

    • I just read as of today, no lakes in Mn are ice free
    • I hit the woods yesterday morning and snuck into a little clearing and ended up being anout 50 yards from where they were roosting. They were very vocal and a few hens sounding off too. Soon as i started to call after they flew down the hens really got into it and accually pulled the toms to the west of me. I did get 1 to come in but only had like a 5-6 inch beard and 2 differnt groups of jakes so knowing there is around 20 toms in the flock of 80 or so i passed on him . Pretty hard to compete with that many hens. The snow is finaly starting to go so i think it will only get better. Heading out in the morning for a short hunt due to work.
    • Still on a roll heading into 2018 
    • Might have to as my garage up north is darn near full to. Sleds will be going into storage soon so that will free up a little space. Storage space is actually pretty cheap compared to building your own
    • Dang Walleye, dude you need to build a Toy barn out back to start holding all these toys! 
    • Thanks guys!  Excited to be back, and thankful for the late allowance!  I hit may 2 - 5th.  Bringing my boy on his first time out this weekend with a gun.  Looking froward to it all!  Good luck guys!!!
    • Will take a little bit to get used to but will spend less time mowing this year and more time doing fun things. If anyone is looking for and older cheaper riding mower I will have a couple of them for sale as soon as I get them out of storage next week. Ones a Craftsman and ones a Scotts. Both well maintained and good shape and will be in the 250 to 300 range.
    • Old Man Winter is refusing to loosen his grip on Wisconsin, dropping from a few inches to more than 2 feet of snow in across the state in a series of snowstorms in the last week. Crews from Pattison State Park and the Brule River State Forest continued to groom ski trails and reported good to excellent conditions. Other properties have put away grooming equipment but skiing was still fair on ungroomed trails through central and even southern Wisconsin. After another 15 inches of snow this week, ski trails were groomed April 17 at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson, DNRThe weather kept many fishermen inside this week, but warm weather this week should bring out lots of anglers. Walleye fishing was picking up on the Oconto, Peshtigo, Menominee and Wolf rivers prior to the snow, but then water temperatures dropped dramatically. There have still been hundreds of shore anglers and boaters out on the Fox River to catch a trophy walleye. Sturgeon are in the Wolf River, but with cold water it will be at least a week or longer before spawning will occur. This satellite image taken by NOAA about noon April 19 shows snow cover across almost all of WisconsinPhoto credit: NOAAMost Door County ramps and access points are blocked with snow. Before the storm fishing was fairly productive. Boats launching at Sturgeon Bay were trolling for browns. Steelhead fishing was good before the storm with numbers of fish showing up in creeks. .
