      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 .

How's the fishing down there?

It's been a couple years since I finished college down there and haven't had a chance to hit my old stomping grounds lately. How's the bite down there? I'm going to try and make a weekend trip down during the next month or so...

Ken? Tom? Jamison? Jason? Brandon? redrocket? Anyone have any cool reports... (ok, I know Jamison is catching fish ;\)grin.gif ) But is anyone else?

Matt:

I cannot speak for anyone else, but I've only managed to get out once so far, but I'm looking forward to getting out more often now that my son is older (2.5) and more independent. They've got a get together on Tetonka set for next weekend, that might be a consideration. I am sorry last winter didn't work out with the ice, but I am still interested in getting a guide trip together. I'm headed to Gull lake @ the end of the month, and wouldn't mind having a head start on finding fish if we run into a slow bite up there.

Lastly, I enjoyed the Mod. gathering @ Thorne Bros. and really got some useful info. from the talks.

Matt,

Good to hear from you! I know where we can catch crappies with the majority over 10 inches. If you want to join me sometime, just let me know.

Matt, The sunnies and a few crappies have been caught in a area you may know on washington. The crappies that have been caught were better sized than anyother part of the lake ive fished. It has been a short window for the crappies but the sunnies would come and go. Ive only fished that area once this weekend while i was home. Pretty decent fish and action.

fishing has been fairlly well, we have been out in kens back yard and doing good. Have to be moblie I had the camara down today and seen alot of fish moving around the area. They are biting very lite the smaller the jig the better chance that you had, live bait has been the best tried plastics and it just wasen't working out, but all in all its been good.

I'll let you know when I head down and we'll all have to plan a trip somewhere. Maybe an informal FM gathering \:\)

Matt,

All I can say is there are a lot of good reports coming in from all the area lakes. Sizes vary, but the fish are generally cooperating.

Why dont you just pop in at the teTonka gathering this weekend.

As far as my fish report goes, have been hammering many specie in the last month but, its been all in the northern 1/3 of the state.

It would be good to see you again.

I would love to join up for the Tetonka gathering, but I already committed to helping out with the StrikeMaster clinics up here in the cities. I'll be sitting outside on a below zero day trying to help someone catch a 5-inch sunfish \:\)

I'm thinking sometime in February would be best. Make a weekend trip out of it and hit two different lakes...

      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. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"
