      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 think it's time we all give our forum sponsor, Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake, an electronic "thank you" for all their hard work in holding together a great bait shop right here in south central MN. It's also nice to see them continue to support our efforts here on Fishing Minnesota! For me, personally, I can't thank Joe and Matt enough for their referrals to my guide service and their awesome customer service when I've had equipment issues, etc.

I'm first; Thanks Reel Fishing and Tackle!

Thanks goes out to the gang at Reel Fishing and Tackle for all they do for the members and fisherman in the SC area. They are always there to also help out with our get-togethers.

Way to go. Everytime I drive by I will stop in as they always have fresh bait and are always willing to give one that Hot Bite info for the area lakes.

T.O. you will be happy to hear a friend and I were in Reel Bait this week and I am pleased to say that even the nice lady that was working was very educated in fishing and the products she was selling!! we ended up getting 9 crankbaits 8 of them were your suggestions (#5 shallow shad raps). She was able to lead us right to the size, color, and shallow running raps we wanted. Heck even the dog was nice. Thanks for leading us to a shop that caters to us fishermen! Todd P.S.

Thanks Reel Fishing and Tackle. They have what you need for the local lakes and are not pushy in trying to sell stuff. The staff always seems to be in the know on what to try and nice to talk to. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

I couldn't agree more with you TO I purchase all my bait there and decided it was time for a new rod a few weeks ago. They sold me on the Falcon, wow is that rod sensitive, took it to Mille Lacs and felt the slightest bump set the hook and found a crayfish clamped onto to the leech in 30 fow. Those rods are amazing, no more Loomis for this guy. Keep up the great work Reel Fishing And Tackle.

I bought a Lx-5 and a otter, small cabin, at reel fishing and tackel last Dec. the price was equal to the big stores and they set the otter together for me, which the other stores don;t. I picked up the otter and L X- 5 the next day. Joe or one of his help called the next day told me I had not gotten the cover for the otter and should pick it up next time I got to their store. I didn;t know the cover came with the otter because it was extra at the other stores. Thanks Reel Fishing and Tackel for a goog deal.

And here's to cooler weather. Is it October yet? Is that Ranger ready for a fall run up to the big pond?

Thanks Joe.

We were just up there last week. HOT!HOT!HOT! and I don't mean fishing. The DNR just did a forage survey and the perch fry are thick and just the right size plus we hit a mayfly hatch. Tough fishing, but the Ranger knows what to do up there so you bet we're ready. Just give us a call. I know Matt wants another trip.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
