      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 there January of '06, we tried for marlin one day and that was alot of fun. We went out of Maui, don't remember the charters name. we had a few striped marlin on but couldn't get one landed, but I managed to get a 200 lb. blue marlin which was unbelievably fun. Other than that I caught a porcupine fish and some other goofy stuff just fishing from shore with some squid from the grocery store under a big bobber outside our hotel. Make sure you go snorkeling with the sea turtles when your there!

Thanks for the info Waxworm! Marlin fishing is what im leaning towards and 200lb fish is enough to get my attention! Whats the going rate for Marlin fishing out there and did you have to buy any licences and did you get to keep it ?

Depending on the size of the boat I think you'll find it to be around $500 for a half day to $800 or $900 for a full day. I imagine the charter will take care of your license. And nope, the catch goes to the crew. They sell the meat and it's part of their income, at least where I was.

WW is right for the most part; Hawaian boats do subsidize thier charter rates with the sale of thier catch. Do some research; some charters will let you keep some fish to cook at your hotel, there are a few that practice C&R of marlin, but generally charge more. Unless you have a need (and way to transport) a couple hundred lbs. of fish, I highly suggest the thrill of watching a marlin swim back into the blue after giving you the battle of your life. And if you want a mount, a replica is the smarter way to go. check out the Sea Dancer, and KIX charters, good reps and they will practice C&R. Good luck!
