      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 didn't know it at the time but when you guys were pulling out I passed by your house with the sled, then Dad told me who you were but you were on your way to Birch at that point otherwise I would have stopped by, figured maybe you would be back on Saturday but you didn't show.

How long had you guys been up? I think Dad had said you guys did well too.

Fishing was good this past weekend, Perch were definetly on the bite ( nice sized Perch too ) mix in a few Walleye and Saugers and there wasn't hardly a dull moment. Pike were a little slower but I think they have plenty to feed on judging from the amount of small Walleye and Perch we caught.

7 of us were up there fishing out of 2 perm. houses and 1 portable and brought home plenty of fish.

Couldn't really put the fish on a definet lure or bait they liked, caught some of Glo / Pink Go Devils, Buckshots Rattle Spoons, Blue / Pink Fireball leadheads, Gold Punkin' jigs and some others I didn't know what they were called. Most of the spoons I used, I took the treble hook off and put on a dropper hook instead that seemed to help. We went thru alot of bait for the weekend both frozen and live, seemed like live bait was starting to win out by Sunday.

If I see you guys at the shack next time, I'll stop by and get a report!

Bow, any new reports? Doesn't look like I will make it up there until the 1st or 2nd week in March. If you go, throw me a report every once in a while, I'll check in when I have access.

Minneman,

Couple weeks ago you could get around, snow was hard, you might run into a drift or 2 that might stop you but usually you could backup and hit it again and get thru. You could drive out from the Marina or Birch Pt. Might want to give the Marina a call and get the latest though.

Not sure what has happend since the big winds have gone thru. Snowmobile will be faster to get around but it was rough too.

Good luck fishing!

Mike

Mike I thought you were going west? Wouldn’t it be better to keep grin.gifon fishing instead of riding a snowmobile? crazy.gif

Sounds like more snow on the way again. Hopefully the yard won’t fill in to bad. It’s not fun cleaning the yard when it’s so miserable out. cry.gif

Fish,

Are you catching up?

We head out Friday........ the fish will still be there when I get back anyway.

When a guy is looking at snow like this, we MUST travel!

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
