      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 .

I recieved a weather radio for fathers day but not sure it is one that will give alarm when bad weather is approaching. Does anyone have a recommendation on one? The one i got is a sony tv/am/fm/weather radio but is not programmable nor does it have an weather alart warning. I do not believe it is a NOAA radio either. Suggestions?

Sounds like the radio you have is capable of picking up "weather band" but will not receive alerts from NOAA. The type of radios you are looking for have a NOAA certification since they are the ones who create the alerts.

CUB Foods has teamed up with WCCO and is selling a very good NOAA radio, programable and everything. $30

Look for S.A.M.E. capable - or words to that effect to get a radio that will automatically turn on when there is an alert for your area. Also, this week Mills fleet Farm has the midland brand radio that cub is selling on sale for 25$

Another good feature to look for is the ability to program the radio for the area you want to be alerted to. I had a digital model that you could do this but I gave it to my mother. Mine you can't. Nothing's worse than having the thing go off at 3 AM to find out the warning is for a hundred miles away. It goes by county and you just feed in the codes.

Thanks guys, Mine did not have the alarm alert so i took it back to Target and they were out of the ones that did. Then i went to Best Buy and the lady told me they do not carry them in-store and that i was the 15 person to ask the last 2 days. Maybe it would be a good idead to carry them then?!

I just picked one up at menards for about $16 with the alarm and a built in flashlight, seemed like a pretty good deal.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.

      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
