      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 .

You typically lose rods? That'd be a tough pill to swallow!

Wicked 1, I would have to guess, the big gator snagged all 4 lines and pulled them down the hole. Not sure though, just a thought.

I can see that happening. Everyone huddled around the one hole and then you here splash x4 and everyone goes "DOH". Bummer bout the two lost ones but glad you were able to get two of them back.

The last two trips to Red, we,ve lost a rod each time. One, we got back. We also caught another rod that belonged to someone else. That lake does seem to eat more rods than normal. I think it's because we fish for long periods so we sleep in shifts and the sleeping guys are the ones that lose the rods.

Well just got back from the pond. Stayed up there friday thru sunday evening. Really slow fishing, end up with five crappies and about thirty walleyes. Drill about a hundred holes and moved around. Thanks to John and Kelly for all the tremedous hospitality and moving us to a different location. Good night

No Asian Pro was not being a smart...

These are two anglers that I pay close attntion to, I may learn a few things.

When they fish they mean it. The sleeper house is just a place to store gear while they drill enough holes out in the wind to sink the lake.

When this guy says he caught 30 walleye that means he only averaged .15 walleye per hole.

Slow for them. They fish hard and are good at it. No sitting in the house staring at their bobbers for them. They are drilling and moving all day long and then all night long.

Hey Kelly - the group of 8 fished hard too. We just drank harder! The quake caused us to drink more.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
