      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 .

with all the stocked 'eyes after the freeze out a few years back i assume thats what all the fuss is about on AL with the shanty town that has developed. from what i understand its not the perch being back again.

What retards. I haven't been out since last Saturday. I am thinking about getting out there tomorrow. Any suggestions. I have had luck at the 35 bridge and at the point but there are so many people at these places. Any other hot spots?

When you fish in AL on any body of water you have to expect company.

      Man you nailed it Kelly. Got out fishing was good. Was about -30*F then went to 14*F . A little after 8AM the Breaker Happened. Here is a pick of a guy to the North of us. We were on 16in of ice. First time I was ever on the ice when the breaker happened........bout crapped my pants.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
