      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 .

Buddy of mine received some nasty hail damage. His garage windows were all busted up, and every tree in his yard was striped of its leaves. There were even a few dead birds laying in the yard! Shows what damage baseball size hail can do!

I know another guy lost the majority of his shingles.

Am I missing something here? I was playing softball in Corcoran last night at 7:30 and got home to Monticello at 9:30. Never a drop of rain in Corcoran or in Monticello. I have not watched the news or anything, where in Wright County did the storm go through? My house seems to miss all the hail storms, it would be nice to get a new roof and siding, although a pain to deal with insurance company I'm sure.

The storm came in through Annandale, passed just south of Buffalo (might have hit buffalo lake) and knocked up Montrose head on.

Trust me, you don't want to deal w/ the insurance company on it. I was hit pretty hard in Big Lake about 2 years ago, and the insurance company tried to cut every corner in the book to keep their cost down. I was unlucky enough to have the insurance company be able to find my old siding, so they would only replace the 2 walls that were damaged. After 7 years of sun-fading and weathering, I wasn't going for that, so I ended up footing the bill to do the rest of the house.

There are still 100's of houses in Big Lake with no work done yet because insurance companies want to play badmitton and use you as the birdie.

We got our house fixed after 13 months of dicker and dagger.

They ONLY want to replace whats bad, regardless if it would be functionable, reasonable, or look decent.

We started with hearing, "2 squares of shingles, 1 window, and 1 wall of siding, or $2,400; whichever you choose".

It ended with an entire new roof, all new soffits, all new facia, complete new siding, new windows all around, a new sliding patio door, and a can of beer.

$32,000 check from insurance later, and a couple contractors, and the house is as good as new.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
