      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 .

Hook in the middle finger!?!?

Hey just pulled off a masterfull hook-set on myself this evening mad.gif Yup...had a smallie on the front treble...then the squirm frown.gifwich put the rear treble in my middle finger with a 3lb fish hanging and wiggling. Yes, it hit the bone and a solid tear came down. I suprised myself...not too much swearing. Pulling it out with the leatherman was almost as bad as the initial event. Well, I guess today the fish kicked my...we have to let 'em win sometimes confused.gif.

Please, someone else bail me out and share in my pain/embarassment by posting your worse self inflicted fishing pain grin.gif

How embarrassing!

I had a 25 lb musky hanging from my index finger connected to a Rattlin Rogue on my right hand. Thankfully the the ski broke loose when he went ballistic.

Another plus was it was a cold rainy night on Mille Lacs. So my fingers were a bit numb to begin with. The hook pulled out in much the same manner as yours without too much additional pain and I continued fishing through the night. smile.gif

A little 3 lber.... wink.gif

I also had a bad expierence with a hook in the hand from a bigger northern. I was suprised how easy it was to push the hook through my palm and cut the barb off.

Those darn northerns sure jump around and shake alot.

I was fishing the Skunk River near Pierz for pike when I was in high school. We would walk the river for about 3-4 miles and hit every hole there was. My buddy casted his spoon into a brush pile across the river. In the process of dislodging it from the brush pile, the spoon shot straight at my face. It was like watching an old horror movie and the arrow is coming straight at your head. Two hooks from the treble lodged just under my chin. My buddy had to use his finger nails to cut the skin to get the hooks out. The slap from the spoon kind of numbed the area so it really didn't hurt that bad but it left a nice scar.

WOW! Thanks for the stories. I feel kinda fortunate now laugh.gif I mean a spoon to the chin or a muskie/pike dangling would be much worse!

as a 15 year old I was fishing from a canoe with my mom and my younger brother on Lake Sagatagan in Collegeville. We were casting jitterbugs in the evening and I think I scored on like my 3rd cast. Got the bass in (prolly a 2 lber) and was taking it off when it thrashed and stuck me in the middle finger of my left hand.

The hook stuck straight in and I think was pretty close to the bone... the hook was not small either. A guy was fishing from his johnboat with his two kids and he offered to get it out with his needlenose. I remember his two young kids failing to hold onto the gunwale of our boat as he cursed that I had the "toughest skin he had ever seen"...he eventually gave up and we went to the emergency room. A few hours later the ER doc shot it up with some novacaine and pulled it through, cut off the barb, and slid it out. The cut healed within a week and now I am a lot more careful when removing the hook from a fish!

My goal is to never get hooked in the eye!

I took a zara spook in the right eyebrow when it pulled loose off a smallie. Unfortunately, I was about a two-hour wade from my car, so I had to stumble over a mile or more of rocks with the spook dangling over my eye. I've had more fun wading the mighty Sauk.

wow all these stories of pain makes the 3lb bass not so bad...jk I was there and ouch....but i wish i had a good pain story to tell but i have been sort of careful except for the day we tipped the canoe. but it was too clod and the pain had subsided from swimming in the cold water to shore. so i gave it a good jerk in the cold water and out it came...guess the thought of my friend and the gear were more important than the pain at that time.....the tippy canoe is a whole other story
