      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 .

Long Point Report Feb. 2-3

Boy, could not have asked for better weather thats for sure an the fishing was really good for us anyway. 32' of water, Sat started out slow, first fish came at 11:00 am. They started small but by the end of the we had a real nice bucket of saugs an eye's ranging from 15 to 18 inches. I was out visiting an my son an his cousin tended lines, so my son comes out looking for me an I run back an his cousin has a nice 18" eye on the floor. Yea!! great job, rattle reels arnt easy for kids to master, so I take pictures an his dad steps in the house, one more picture an for some reason his dad just has to reach to gill the fish an the kid lets go an his dad dose'nt have it an Yep, thats right, Kersplosh!! Thems the breaks, sometimes its a hard lesson for dads to learn, just let the kid do it. O'well. Sun. proved better yet with the first fish at 9:30, just my daughter this time, right of the bat she hit a 17" saug. nice start an they stayed that way pretty much all day with a bunch of shakers mixed in. My highlight way picking some up jigging on the vex, 19" eye an 17.5" saug. couple of 15's an 16's an shakers. The kids really out did themselves with the rattle reels, old school hand over hand an put fish in the bucket, awsome trip an limited out over the two days. I think what really worked for us was me jigging fish in to the center of the house an the the rattle reels were on the outside perimeter of the set up for the quick meal. Sat. had family to the east of me an they did not catch a fish, move them in to 29 an west of me an same results on Sun. I could have just been on top of them and it was my turn. But then again having the jigging hole in the center of the house with set lines all around it, the fish more often than not will turn to face one of the set line for a easy meal. Now I have a long night of filleting. Boar

Nice job Boar, I like to see a boy from the neighborhood doin

good out there. You fish that area quite a bit so I bet you

have an edge on how to trigger the bites. Them that puts in the

time and pays attention will get more fish(if there are any

around to get).

Say boar does arnesen's still have about 40 houses jam packed to the west side of twin islands? If so I'd say fishing is still decent there and we don't need to go to the reefs yet. take care

      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.

      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"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
