      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 .

We put the big house out on the lake today. Pulled it out with the ATV on the snowmobile trailer. Looked out on the lake and right smack dab in the middle is a pick-up truck! ooo.gifWhen I drilled for the house we had 10 solid inches. I was surprised to see that much ice. There was 8 last weekend in the same spot. And even more suprised to see that truck out there. Sorry, not me. Next weekend for sure. wink.gif

unreal, i bet those guys pet stray pitbulls too. the ice is always safe until. "i hit the one spot on the lake where the ice was thin, there was a good 18 inches everywhere else." or "someone should have told me there was a spring there." maybe "the carp were in shallow and fanning the ice with their tails, who would have known."

BigStevie, that's terrible. I too would like to live another day to fish, but wishing that someone would go under? I'm not going to risk driving out until I see tracks on the ice, but I'll have my kids with me. I'll probably give it another couple weeks, unitl then, I'll be getting some exercise. lol. Dave

Not a surprise, given that labs and golden retrievers are number 1 and 2 for popularity in the US, and even hold a bigger lead in households with children.

Stereotyping might not be the best thing to do...but he was only trying to be funny. I actually chuckled. Remember, he did say "stray" pitbulls.

It's obvious that on any individual dog, the way it's raised has more to do with its behavior than what breed it is. But if for some reason you want paint a breed with a broad brush, you will have a hard time with your argument that a golden retriever is a more dangerous breed than a pitbull.

If you're honest with yourself (pitbull owner or not), you will come to the conclusion that, all things being equal, the pitbull breed has a demeaner and strength that neither a lab or a retriever have. I think there's a reason dog fighting doesn't showcase labs or golden retrievers.

What is the topic of this thread anyways!

I think these guys are keeping the chatter up and keeping the post at the top of the forum, untill Ron has a chance to respond back on what lake he is talking about.

Unless he does not want us to know the name of the lake. grin.gif

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
