      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 .

School got done yesterday so what do ya suppose i did today. I went fishin. Dad was gone so it was all from shore. But no worries, they were going nuts. Caught and released 12 smallies all from shore. They were between 12 and 18 except for one 20 inch hog. It was great. Get out there every body. Happy fishing.

The top water bit is really hot right now..... We went out yesterday and they smacked the top water.... We drifted from the camping ground in elk river to the weigh station in Ramsey and caught about 40 on top water.... The biggest was 19 inches but most of them in that 16-17 inch range. We did manage a few on spinners and tubs but the best action was on top water... what a blast. grin.gif

Shack,

Lot's of guys run that stretch with RiverPros. It can get pretty hairy, but it's no big deal if you pay attention and know the river a bit. It's nice to be able to run in 4" of water!!!

I ran it (Monti-Elk River) with a friend last summer who's got a RiverPro and then canoed it the next weekend, and let's say that my canoe took a whole lot more damage than his RiverPro!!!

If I had the funds, there'd be a RiverPro in my garage, and I would take you for a ride to remember!!!

I am sure it would be a ride to remember! I have seen the River Pro in action on video and they were not holding back any. Sure looks like a nice boat. When I do get another boat, River Pro will be my first option.

The thing about the ER section is you get hung up fast, and draging a boat in fast current is a "female dog" smirk.gif

You guys ever try going behind Sunshine Depot. That channel is white nuckle all the way. Sharp rocks and inch or so below water. Good times!

I got hung bad in the Rock Finder one late night a few years ago, called my neighbor across the river, he showed up about 1:30 AM in his boat, (after I got it off the bar,) WITH BEER AND CIGARETTES, WHAT A GUY! grin.gifgrin.gif

We then floated down river, drank the beer, smoked the smoke and hit our places about 3:30 AM! It was a great day on the water, the 4 blade went in that day for repairs. blush.giffrown.gifcrazy.gif

I might ad that my buddy is a pretty good pilot on the creek and the water was a lot higher than it is now. That year you could go anywhere. grin.gif

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
