      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 .

Fishing Club...

Okay, this has the potential to be a stupid idea, as well as the potential to be a cool idea. I've been tossing around the idea of starting a fishing club. My wife has actually given me the idea as she has stamping clubs, mom's club, etc. So I was thinking why not start a fishing club where interested folks can get together at a particular spot and talk fishing. It actually would be a lot like what we do on the forums, but in person. Share ideas, what's hot, what's not. I know personally I'm not an expert by any means with my GPS, maybe we could get someone to show how to use the bells & whistles, etc.

This could be a year round thing, and maybe we could actually recruit a couple sponsors willing to provide a meeting place, or whatever.

Any interest? Any ideas? Thoughts? Is this stupid or could it be a good thing?

Yeah I just got a GPS and I have no idea how to use it. I bought a navonics hot maps and it doesn't work like I thought it would. Any ideas on how to set up my GPS for this. Let me know. I thought it gave you the contures of a whole bunch of lakes, but I get nothing.

You should be getting something. I don't have the Navionics, mine is the Lakemaster chip and it shows up to 5ft contours. I know the closer you zoom in on a marked lake it will show tighter contours. If zooming in don't work maybe run it back to whoever you bought it from and make sure it's installed correctly or something else may be amiss. Good luck.

Thanks though. I got it figured out. It took some time for me to get it to work. But it works now.

So about this Fishing Club. Tell me about it. I wouldn't mind joining this club you got going on. I will be moving back to Bemidji in the fall. So if you ever need someone to go fish with, I'm that guy. haha It's always better with a group anyways.

Nothing has been started yet, but my thoughts are to just get guys (or gals) together once a month or every other month and just talk about fishing. What's been hot, what's not, etc. No membership fees or anything like that, just a group of people interested enough in fishing they're willing to share thoughts about new gear, tackle, hot spots, tactics, etc. I would certainly think we could get 5,10,20,25 people that would like to get together and talk about fishing. Could meet at a bar, restuarant, Gander Mountain, or someone's place, it don't matter.

Good luck on the move, when do plan on making it in?

I think it's a good idea all in all. Share thoughts & advice. Even fish'n trips involved on occasion. Maybe small tournies? I'd be interested but I only pass that way 4 times a year.

Well we could find out when some of the out of town folks might be around and meet then. I know it wouldn't work out for everyone each and every time, but that's okay. It wouldn't be anything that needs any commitment, if people are available to show up, great, if not, no biggie.

I did some asking around but the replies have been kind of cool on the subject. I guess most feel that it's in their best interest to keep a tight lip on what's hot, tackle, lakes, etc. I can understand, with the number of people fishing these days it's nice to have a spot that you consider secret or whatever. I've always been one that would rather share the info and let others in on the fun or success. I will say however that there are a good number of people that share good info on this site.

I'd still like to do something on this, if anyone else is interested "raise your hand"...LOL! Seriously, I think this would be kind of a fun deal.

That is a good idea u have. I personaly get tired about all these tourneys they have around the area they have cuz an average person dont have the $$$ or the name to be in those tourneys. Sure is good for the town. How about the the little man who enjoys fishing with others and have a LESS costly way of doing it, while having fun at a less costly way. I"m intersted sounds like fun.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Thank you one and all, especially you Tommy. Some very kind words and ditto to you my friend. "Ace" "It's just fishing man"

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
