      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 .

Amen. Every year about this time I walk the lake I live on, and the landing and pick up countless bags of trash left behind. Beer cans, lead weights, plastic, etc etc.

It would sure be nice if the guys that leave this trash would realize that the trash they leave to sink to the bottom of the lake wont help their fishing.

I have been picking up a lot of trash the last few days too. Disappointing but I also know I won't drive past it.

Its like camping, pack in what you pack out. A little common sense goes a long way out there, and you wouldnt want someone throwing bags of garbage on your front yard, so dont throw your garbage on someone else's. Mutual respect for fellow outdoorsmen.

This is difficult for me to say - but it's been on my mind for years. In general, the lakes and shorelines of this area are probably the worst for trash in all of Minnesota. I know that is a gross generality - but it's really bothered me. Trash - dirty diapers - plastic bait containers, BEER cans and boxes. When we first moved here - my family was shocked at how trashy some of the lake ice is - and shorelines are during the open water season. I'm positive it's just a small minority of people - but I would challenge everyone to do like TO and some of the other fellas have said - hump out your trash - even pick up the trash that isn't yours. And speak up when you are next to a trashy fellow fisherman/boater who is being stupid.

We have a great area around here. Let's keep it looking great -and SPEAK UP!

This time of year yes, there is alot of trash on the lakes throughout the state. Fishing Minnesota does promote lake clean ups by members of Fishing Minnesota.

Its pretty simple to put on. One can pick a date, go fishing like a get together and during the noon hour or whenever, pick up all the trash at the landings and on the ice that ones sees. I have done this before and it is a good way to go fishing for the day and also help clean up all the trash. A few people can bring garbage bags and maybe a few others bring some items for a lunch on the lake.

One would be suprised just how much garbage you will pick up.

T.O- That's a great thing to have --But why should Us or fellow fisherman have to pick after these slops? sometime's I relize it's not easy to get the burried blocks out from the ice, But if you carry you [PoorWordUsage] out then take it HOME. the liquor store's did'nt leave the empty case's or did the fish lay there remains out there in a bag!!!! like I said before SLOP'S make a good example of a fisherman -or women.

No doubt, it's a tough thing to see, but we need to stay persistent. Giving in would only play into "their" game.

It might be too late now, but for all the guys that want to put blocks under your houses so the houses don't freeze down.

CHOP THEM BLOCKS OUT WHEN YOU MOVE THE D** HOUSE.

mad.gifmad.gif Some dummy left blocks froze in that were under a house with nails sticking up. A friend of mine was coming back to the swimming beach and drove over them. He didn't see them and had 2 tires go flat. We walked back and found them in the ice. Its unbeliveable some of the stupit things people do and then they can't even pick up after themselfs. Its total bulls&!$ people. Its getting real old picking up after these slobs.

Ditto on that hawkeye43.

While on French today I chopped out (6) 2' 4" X 4" blocks some guy left sticking up and froze in. No big deal as I have a 5' 60lb chisel and popped them right out. That house sat there all winter and I never saw him there but twice.

Not far from that area were (3) 1lb propane bottles laying on the ice,pork n bean cans, plastic under carriage parts from a van stuck on the lake weeks back and various other junk I picked up.

Thought maybe when the CO checked me out he would tackle the task, but after he left I walked over and cleaned up the messes.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      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!
