      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 finally got to meet french lake kid last night, we went to his dads house to pick him up and meet his dad. We then went to Cabelas to see what we could do about getting his bow set up, ("we" happens to be my 2 daughters and myself, they said he was cute.......) his bow was to long hor him. Nothing we could do about that, so we found him a new bow. Cabelas was really busy so it took a while for them to set it up and get us out the door, but they were nice, and very helpful. The Parker bow he got was perfect draw length and can grow with him. I havent had a Parker but i have heard some pretty good things about them from some friends. I think the kid was pretty happy, but hes really laid back and quiet so, im just hoping he was. It was getting pretty late by the time we were done at cabelas so i took him home. Im just waiting to hear how it shoots and if he got the sights dialed in. I also learned a few other things about the kid, like hes doing drivers training. I think hes a pretty good kid, so i didnt mind getting him a new bow, besides i think i might have a fishing buddy for life. The bow was about the same price as 2 trips with a guide, but i think we will get to fish more than 2 times so it seems like a good deal to me.Well, more updates to come later, hopefully with a musky involved!!! later Todd

I'm starting to see that, I sure hope I can keep up. Luckycrank, hopefully we can all get together for some casting, I look at it this way, at his age there is alot of fire in his belly so if antbody in the future tries to take away my rights to hunt and fish I have a champion with endless energy to fight for all of our rights to do so. Do you bowhunt luckycrank? well anyway if you get a chance see if you can get him out to the 3-D course outside of town, I told him how to get there but im sure you already know. have a good 1 and I'll see you all later........

Thanx guys for the kind words. smile.gif I only shot the bow a few times and it was way faster than any bow I've evere shot B4. Hopefully I'll start getting it ready for fall. I'm headed out to the lake 2moro a.m. and will have the muskie report. If I hook into 1 on accedent. Might have to wait for 1 of those "guided trips" til we get through these forcasted 100+ degree temps. smirk.gif Cant even amagine (spelling confused.gif) what the water temp is going to be in a week or so... frown.gif not good I can tell you that already. blush.gif

Good luck Kid. Hope you tag a big one. As far as the bow, keep shooting and it should pay dividends this fall.

Kid, let me know when you want to go shoot some 3-Ds, i also want to make sure the bow is quiet. A fast arrow is great but not worth beans if the deer hears it comng bcause the bow rattles, some limb savers might be good too.I'll give you a call later about maybe going out fishing 1 mourning this week. later......

Tuesday p.m. fishing a weedline in 5' or so for bass. As it got closer to dark, the skies started rolling, threw out a single colorado, chartruse, Booyah spinner-bait, it was about 10' from the boat and my line went slack, so I reared back and got nothing back but my line mad.giffrown.gif Today a.m. same as night B4. Muskies everywhere. shocked.gif Fishing the edge of a flat with with chatter, a muskie rolled with-in 25 yards and I threw my chatterbait AFAP and once again 10' from the boat my line goes slack, set the hook, this time I hooked it smile.gif but only for a second mad.giffrown.gif Oh well... From Tuesday mid-day to just a few mins ago we boated around 40 bass, and 1 sheepie (on a swim-jig grin.gif)

Hey Kid, I probably wont be able to go fishing this week, I have alot of things going on, but next week is looking better. Besides it might be a little cooler. I am glad to hear the muskys are still snappy. and am glad to hear you did so well with the bass. if you need anything for the bow or want to shoot 3-Ds let me know... Later Todd

      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.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      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

      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

      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"
