      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 .

While trolling for northerns last weekend on Mitchell Lake, I thought I had hooked some weeds. I reeled in the crank bait to find a bobber and some fishing line. After pulling in about 30 feet of line I came to the jiggle stick it was still attached to. It's still in the boat if anyone wants it and can describe it to me.

p.s. The jiggle stick was the longest thing caught all morning. frown.gif

A cow... Actually the guy I was with did. Was fishing in a small bay of the main lake that just stunk bad. The guy I was with was tossing a spoon when he set it on something and after some tugging and pulling a decaying cow popped to the surface. We cut the line and did a long distance release.

My 7 YO brother let out all the line in his pole while trolling and the line thatcame with wasnt tied on. I was mad at him and beacuse it was nicer line too.

We go out sunny fishing 4 hours later and my granpa gets all mad cuz we were vertical fishing and he caught one of of lines. He start pulling and pulling it up expecting to see our rods bend. He keeps going andgoing until the same exact lure hewas trolling with pops up into our boat. What are the chances of that?

While fly-fishing in Mexico, I was just learing how to double haul and on one of my false casts, my line went tight in my hand and I heard a muffled "YOW!". I turned around to see my fly in my guides leg......needless to say I didn't live that one down for the rest of the trip.

I caught a bat throwing a tiny toredo in the river. Not sure if he thought it was something he could eat and hit it during cast or if I just smacked him midair. Since it was getting dark I wasn't sure why the lure was reeling in funny. Sure was suprised to see the bat hooked. I have a pic but it's not digital and no scanner.

My brother set the hook on what he thought was a huge fish that took him about 10 minutes to land.....turned out to be a drift sock.

Weirdest Catch or Funniest laugh of a catch!!

yeap, I did catch a bat

Seen a guy catch a flycatcher bird

My buddy caught what he thought was big catfish, but I saw it all - a pelican.

My uncle caught a duck

My nephew caught a loon

My brother in law tried catching wild turkey with a tandem spinner bait???? - yeah right, I got angry at him for purposely trying to snag the bird. Except for this one, all of the other ones are just way too funny.

I hooked a guy's face one time. I was in my boat casting and a boat full of other guys had come withing about 30 feet of me on a lake that was otherwise practically empty of people. I think they saw me catching fish and came over quietly with a trolling motor.

I muffed a back cast with my plug and it hit the guy in the face.

Casting near rock dock on Lake Waconia... caught myself a Gull. Wrapped worm,weight, and line around a leg. Didn't really notice at first as I was talking to buddy in back of boat & all the sudden I feel my line moving up and away to my right... Strangest thing to look up and see a bird flying away with your line. I slowly realed her in and (not without a fuss and some feathers lost) untangled the line and set her free... Crazy time in a small boat. Also, about a 30 plus pound snapping turtle on a texas rigged lizard on Waverly... I thought I had the state record bass for a second: (I cut the line). Another one... Not really a catch though... I was casting a frog near some pads (different lake) and just SMOKED a Swallow in flight... I think I either knocked it out cold and it drowned or I just killed it with the impact. THAT was weird as the impact was probably lest than 5 yards from the boat and obviously completely unexpected... You just can't make this kind of stuff up.............. grin.gif

Trolling mille lacs early this summer and my deep taildancer wasn't quite thumping right so I reeled it in. Low and behold I had caught a used condom on the back treble. Talk about sick!

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice! 
    • JMP_37
      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
