      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 know this probably isn't the place for this, but your the people that might run across this stuff.

In a rash of garage break-ins in Benton County this weekend, many

of us lost fishing tackle, Honda generators, Mathews & Hoyt bows,

Lowrance X-25c, camo clothes, trail camera, ice & summer rods,

tools, saws,etc...

Take it from first hand experience, it sucks. If anyone hears of

a bunch of "hot" stuff..Call Benton County Sheriff

I hate to jump to conclusions but it almost seems like this is the new thing....not that stealing is a new thing. But taking these sorts of things. Down here in SW MN we have had quite a few thefts very similair sounding to this. Like I said, I dont want to jump to conclusions but are the young kids doing this? Is it their new way to make money to pay for something they really want. It just seems like the merchandise that is being stolen around here are items they could pawn off with no questions asked.

Probably sounds wierd but we never had to worry about locking our garage and before we had kids, our house went several nights without being locked. Now everything gets locked up tight. Too bad cause I cant help but think they are young adults and it really makes a person stereotype some of them...probably unfairly and unjust but its the unfortunate truth.

HoleHopper,

You are exactly right....rage, etc. If I ever see anything

happening in or by my garage again, I'll do what I need to do

and ask questions later...I thought I was a nice guy, until now.

Everyone....mark your stuff, take pictures, alarm your garages, etc. You just can't imagine what it's like.

Also, who buys this stuff? and if you run across anyone selling

sports gear, tools etc, call someone.

Closer to home, I had my portable Eskimo fish house ripped off right out in front of Izatys last weekend. I have left it out numerous times with no incident, but somebody decided they needed a free fish house. At least I didn't have anything of value in the fish house when stolen. There were a rash of fish house breakins and thefts last winter in mille lacs if I recall postings....

I have no dought that you are a nice guy. Just becouse we all need to stand up for ourselves and what belongs to us does not meen that we are not nice. Nice does not involve letting someone steal from us. That is totally different.

spankster,Does your Eskimo have any identifying features? I fish the south end a lot.

sorry to hear about that. Check Craigs list and Ebay (seriously)! You'd be surprised what pops up on there.

I agree with bigbartguy. Check craigslist for sure. I had a bday party a couple weeks ago and a ps3 was stolen and the next day it was on craigslist.

      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!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
