      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 .

Sheesh. I even get skunked with the underwater cameras.

Edit: Just saw a walleye. Cool.

Ok. That was too much fun. These were all captured in about 15 minutes...Quite the walter hangout I might add. Most of the action is moving from right to left with the occasional carp coming upstream. Ok, now I need to work. Get to know those hotkey commands for capturing, it's pretty tricky!

dang it, I cant figure out how to do a screen capture.

Hit pause when you get a fish image on the control bar at the bottom, shift/print screen at same time, go into "paint" and click edit. Click paste and use "save as" to store image. Then host the image and post here!

When you find out, you will slap your self like I did when I found grin

There is a couple ways, but the most basic is very easy.

When I get home I will put up some pictures on how to do it, if some does not beet me to it before then grin

First question, do you have a photo image hosting site that you use. Have you ever posted an image of FM before?

1. When you see a fish, hit the pause button

2. Do a print screen. There should be a key on your keyboard, you might have to do ctrl/print scree, function/print screen, or maybe just a simple print screen, depending on your keyboard layout.

3. Open up an image editing software (MS paint works fine)

4. Right click copy

5 Edit as needed and save as JPG file

6. Upload to host

7. Post here just like any other picture.

I'm sure there is an easier way, but this is how I do it.

That sucker was mugging there for almost an hour! I got a few good ones of him, but your pics look pretty solid JimBuck. Every time I opened up the window for a while there he was just sitting in front of the camera.

I have to hit shift and print screen. I never tried the others ways.

The print print screen key should be just to the right of you F12 key (upper right of key board).

What Dtro said is the best way to start out. If you have vista, you can do a search in you start menu (leower left of desk top screen) for "Snipping Tool". For me it is a hair a peice, but if you have this it is just as easy.

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D8B7xbrAGw   Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees. This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze. The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless! With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch! Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain. I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too. 
    • How about using a AGM battery. They are sealed so no need to vent. I use one in my Yetti for the last 3 years. I also use a big volt and run a forced air furnace. I made an extra storage area in front of my rear jack knife sofa for the battery. I remove the lid to access it to hook up the big volt. After drilling the hose I reconnect the house power back to the battery. I used old jumper cable ends from my power source to the house. That way I just pull off the cables when I leave the house. No drain on battery when I’m gone. Easy access. I had it under rear sofa that was a pain. Best change I made to the house. I got the old cables off a dead jumper unit at the landfill. 
    • The Marcus Willimans that plays for the saints is not from Minnesota. The Marcus Williams that you are referring to plays for Houston.     Going to be 52 degrees there????? 
    • Did you ask @Wanderer since it was a picture you took from his post?    
    • Good job Ryan and dad!  Great photo too!
