      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 .

I was just wondering how many of you guys preffer to fix something over tossing it? I am pretty mechanically inclinded and have resurected quite a few different things. Especially if I can get a shop manual for it, I will fix it. I even do 90% of my own car repairs.

On a side note, If it don't run and your gonna scrap it, let me know, I may be willing to tackle fixing it.

THATS why my 3 car garage holds 1 car and a boat.

I try to fix it. I am a little bit of a tree hugger in that I hate to have anything going to a landfil unnecessarily and using additional resources to replace it. I am also a bit of a cheap bugger so if I don't have to spend the money to replace it I won't.

Big Country's 10" auger bit was a bit much for the 49cc Mag 111 engine, heavy too.

Today we got Mark's auger ready for the Bash.

Very fitting for my Hillbilly friend.

Can't do this without those spare parts.

I'll call it a Mora Master Mag lll. 3M for short.

Pretty funny Frank but as long as it turns clockwise and cuts ice that is all that matters \:D

Cuts ice? Dude, with Franks sharpening skills that thing will put any new Jiffy or Eskimo to shame. You need a hole dug? Call BC at the Bash on channel 7 and I am there pal. BC

I fix 'em. Mostly because I enjoy doing it. I'm a carpenter by trade but am just as comftorble tearing down and rebuilding an engine as I am doing everything from form work to finish trim out on the job. Evan after I've finished something I'm always thinking of ways to improve it. Bad thing is I have a hard time saying no and seem to spend a lot of my time fixing stuff for my friends. Right now I've got several projects lined up in my shop that aren't mine.

      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!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
