      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 .

My list is short: slug barrel, slugs, chair, headlamp, coverall, warm boots. Of course I never unpack my 'trip bag' - a pet peeve of my wife - which contains underware, socks, reading material, lounge clothes, shaving kit. And the cooler and beer are already loaded!!!

I feel ya knockin BLACKJACK! It's not a shaving kit, it's a "medicine cabinet"!

I forgot to mention that every list should include Tums/Rolaids and Immodium. Nothing ruins a good time like heartburn, acid reflux in the stand, or "the trots".

I knew I forgot something, that must be why we didn't get a deer this weekend. Next time, I'll put Buck on the list. I hunt southern minnesota, do you think it would be pushing it, to put "snow" on the list?

You know, I plumb forgot to add deer to my list, too. Explains a lot. I just got out my list from last Friday and added "typical 12-point buck with B&C green score of 266 1/2."

I wonder if it will work this many days after opener. Nah, who am I kidding? crazy.gif

just a 266 12-point typical huh? Is that all?

I'd just like to get my son one. I have had an opportunity to shoot a trophy 3 years in a row... and he has yet to see a buck... well, no, he saw one with half a rack.

The kid sat in his blind from 6 am to 6:23 pm on Saturday. I was so proud of him. And he jumped right out of bed on sunday as well. It's hard for anyone to sit for 12 hours. I was very very proud of him. But he had nothing to show for it : (.

Hey man, when a guy makes a list, why not put a record on it? grin.gif

With a work ethic like that, your boy will have his deer sooner or later. The wait will make the kill all the sweeter. Sounds like he's got a ton of patience. I know quite a few grown men who can't do what he did. grin.gif

        This post is turning into an 80's  TJ HOOKER episode! To fun to turn off an so bad it needs to be made fun of. : )

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.  
    • Southern_IL_Boy
      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day. 
    • Surface Tension
        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      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.
