      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 .

Bemidji Perch [jerk-bait]

Recommended Posts

woodman

The annual Bemidji Perch [jerk-bait] for kids is this Sunday March 2nd from 1-3 on lake Bemidji. Get the kids out to this event. They are giving away 60 bikes and lots of other prizes also. You get a free lunch and one hole per kid.

If any of you want to run your auger on Sunday morning, please feel free to show up and help us drill holes. I have been told they want aprox. 1000 holes drilled so I am putting a bug into your ear to get you to come and help. I will post more info as I get it or if anybody else can post more let us know!

My kids look forward to this event every year, and I was told last weekend if they don't get enough volunteers that this was the last year for it. It is about the kids people, take some time out of your busy schedule and help the Dark house association out by volunteering at this wonderful event for the KIDS!

Hope to see you there!

Be on the South end at 8:30 a.m.

The derby runs from 1-3 p.m.

They need some help after the derby to help clean up...

The more help the better..

Thanks,

Beef

Woodman,

I don't know what word you are using but maybe the FM computer has a program that replaces words, maybe a brand name or something, with another word. At least you didn't get the (poor word usage) slapped on you!

If the wife lets me come on down to punch some holes should I add my extension???

It is easier drilling without it, until you get way down there, then the extension sure is nice.

I have not stepped foot on Bemidji this year.

I was told my Mark Cook last night that they have 6 augers from Strike Master with 6 inch diameter that they will use due to the number of small kids attending this event. I am going to bring my 8 inch in case they decide to us that diameter also. Strike Master is a sponsor and they will have a trailer there with goodies to purchase.

See ya on the lake Sunday am around 8:30.

I'd make a joke about "leaving my 9" at home..." but I won't go there! Personally, I never leave home without mine!

How'd the Perch Derby go? I'd have loved to be up there for it but my hope is that the beautiful weather made for a fantastic day. I hope you have some great photos to share Beef. We could use them in our kid's ice fishing seminar next December at the ice fishing show.

Please post a few photos if ya can! \:\)

Well thanks for all who volunteered to drill holes and work the event. I saw only about 6 perch that were hanging at the weight in shack. Pretty slow day, but what a blast fishing in a BLIZZARD! I am a little sore from drilling all those holes, thank GOD BUCK was my auger mate this am! grin.gif Great day, good deals on Strike Master clothing and augers! The wife bought an electric auger me a jacket and bibs and her a fleece jacket! grin.gifgrin.gif Good day for the both of us!

Great to see all the families out there and kids having a blast wrestling in the snow and pulling each other in the sleds. Way to Go Dark House Association for a great event!

The Dark House Association is a class act and their leader Roger is one of the most under-credited outdoorsman in our state. Every year the Dark House Association gives a lot of money back to the community. Not bad for a group that's been called "harpooners" back in the day.

To get back on topic...those Bemidji perch are a beautiful species of fish with some terrific colorations. I've only caught them ice fishing and it totally makes sense why yellow lures work so well for the pike and muskies!
