      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 .

Thanks, I almost took Gordon over Johnson just before the race started but I am glad I didn't. Nice to get the first win after a few 2nd place finishes last year.

Man, there were some great scores this week! I don't think we've ever had a week here with this many 300+ scores! Nice!

Good call HOF!

Week 21 of 2008 was the high week at 35 teams with 300 or more. This week we hit 44 teams with 300 or more. This was a good week for many teams!!

Capt. Blaine also has the record for the most amount of weeks with 300 or more points at 14.

Thanks again. I was kind of hoping that everybody would have had a bad week when I finally had a good one so I could hopfully make it closer to the front to battle with the leaders. That idea was shot after the record was broke of most teams over 300 points.

    • who's the old guy sitting on the sled in the second picture?
    • Might want to give us some more info on the model/year of that thing.   Might also want to check with minnkota directly.  Just because they discontinued the product doesn't mean they don't have a crate full of these things in a warehouse somewhere.
    • I thought my buddy might be interested, but it's not in his budget right now. Good luck on the sale.
    • I agree. They also work well in deep water. I can get back down noticeably faster with the 6061 black betty than my best spinning reels.
    • I will say having the freespool feature when your on top of a school a perch moving through has put more fish in the bucket for me. Way quicker than hand lining a spinning reel. Once you get the freespool dialed in and running smooth,  you  can get your bait right back in front of the fish effortlessly. It makes a world of difference when your in a hurry. I run and gun on the ice and most lakes and sloughs here in SD are not that deep so works great for me.
    • I live right outside of Moorhead and see a few in the winter now days. About 8 yrs ago they moved into the shelterbelt around our place and there were about 50. It was nice to see them. I grew up in Harvey N.D. and we would go out and shoot a pickup box full in a night. That 250 - 300 jacks in a night. We would sell them to a guy that had a Mink and Fox ranch and get 50 cents each. The amount of jacks we would see in a night would be in the 1000's.   I think all the chemicals and pesticides are killing them off. We dont see the Meadow Larks like we use to either.
    • They work great on a super limp rod in 10 ft or so for tiny jigs on panfish, eliminating spin. Worthless after that. For this purpose expensive ones are a waste. 
    • I actually have one but it is up north and I won't be in a position to get it until next spring.   So PM me if you still need it then and you can have it.   Been a few years since I used it, but it worked when I stashed it in the attic.   They are not too hard to take apart and clean, and that might help.  Let me know in May if you still are in need.  
    • Another solution is to get Handheld radios (FRS/GMRS) especially if there's weak cell signal.
