      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 .

Why Cattin is better than Bassin

Recommended Posts

Just because they tend to have a sense of humor (unlike the walleye guys blush)

Top ten reasons why Cattin is better than Bassin:

10. You don’t need $200 sunglasses for Cattin, in fact you don’t need sunglasses at all

9. Bass make good bait for Flats, but not vice versa.

8. Bass guys think wearing visors and having frosted hair is cool.

7. You can chase Cats all year long here

6. Try bouncing a $40,000 Bass boat off snags all year.

5. Mike Iaconelli

4. Bass guys think an 8lb fish is HUGE

3. Cat guys don’t have to learn how to pitch.

2. Cat guys know that the only thing worms are good for is catching bait.

And the number 1 reason why Cattin is better than Bassin

1. Cat guys would NEVER use a Sweet Beaver for bait.

Number 5 is hilarious. I've seen Mike's show a few times on VS. and while he is a great angler, for some reason just listening to him infuriates me. The choice to compare to bass is a good one because a list to compare walleye could get REALLY long. Love the humor in the cat forum....

Don't even start with the walleye guys. We got humor. Most of our fun actually comes from watching those of you catch other types of fish because we know the ONLY reason you're not fishing walleye is because you don't know how to catch 'em. grin

Great post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So when do you think the twin outboards will hit the tour? I'll go with next year. cool

The Q I have is; Can a Bass fisherman fish if no one is watching?

I have to go now and start loading up my hook set for May 23rd. You just got to see it, Bottle rockits and Roman candles. cool. I'm thinking of adding a Tarzan yell like Buster Crab used.

My rebuttal to DTRO's misconceptions:

10) I wear $29 sunglasses when I can find them in my boat.

9) Using gamefish is breaking the law. Bass fishermen are law-abiding citizens.

8) My head would burn to a crisp if I put a visor on even indoors.

7) Pool 2. But when you catch so many fish for 8 straight months, a guy needs a break.

6) I'd be more than happy to bounce someone else's $40000 boat off snags.

5) There are exceptions to every rule.

4) Size is in the eye of beholder.

3) Bass guys don't have to do disgusting things with dead fish.

2) And, we typically don't make snacks out of our bait.

Number one, and the most important:

1) Beaver(s) doesn't generally find us repulsive.

    • Starts Saturday....anybody going out?
    • If Stanley’s question is pointed at me:  I can’t tell ya anything yet.  I haven’t dug into mine any further.  It is the factory installed unit and would like to just replace what is broken but I find sometimes getting parts for DIY RV fixes can be obnoxiously tough.  I’ve done my electrical troubleshooting to the point of knowing it’s broken. I did learn something new about our 2016 wheelhouse the night before deer opener though:  There is a safety that won’t allow the heater to run while the trailer lights are hooked to the truck.   Took me a while to figure that out.  I read the manuals and didn’t see why it wouldn’t go into the ignition cycle so I called the dealer and got a little infuriated when the only comment I got was “Too tough to troubleshoot over the phone. Bring it in”.  Really? So I tore it out!  I found there was a rocker switch on the module and a wire that stated in order to perform a POT test, the coach needed to be disconnected.  So I disconnected the trailer lights, cycled the switch and the next try it worked just fine. Put everything back together and it hasn’t missed a beat.  I found my 15 amp trailer light fuse in the truck popped too. Seems like that was something that could’ve easily been mentioned over the phone.  
    • Fred has a "thing on the floor"...his feet, but no push buttons. Maybe Wilma has the push buttons....
    • Deer cart for sure. You can save some money and make your own game cart - https://catchthemeasy.com/build-dependable-game-cart/ Or, if you would rather just save time like myself then just buy one    
    • me thinks some one is having fun with push buttons!!
    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
