      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 .

The number of postings have really dropped off since the walleye season closed. In the "crappie boom" days you could leave your computer for 10 minutes and their would be quite a few postings waiting to be read. If you were away from your computer for a couple of days it seemed to take forever to wade through everything when you got back. The "Boom" might be over and the schools depleted but they are still there - just smaller and more spread out. The water level and snow cover might be making it more difficult but if you put in your time you will still catch them - maybe just not in the numbers of years ago. I love those silver and blacks coming out of that cold water. They are delicious and There are very few lakes where you can catch the size of fish that Red Lake has to offer. Five crappies in Red are equal to 10-12 fish in most lakes. I have two more trips on Red this year and am unable to fish when it will be prime time. I am envious of those of you who are going the last week of March into early April. Fishing on bare ice with the water running into the holes and no need of an auger is fun. Enjoy!!!

I had to post this just to see if there is anyone out there monitoring the website - Ha! Ha!

I agree, the number of posts has dropped drastically. I think everyone is viewing and not writing. I hope to make it to Red within the next couple of weeks to try my luck.

I am planning on URL March 28th and 29th. This will be my first experience on Spring fishing. I have made three trips this winter and had fun all three times. If anybody is going to be on the pond those two days, lets get together and compare notes.

Hopefully we won't need the waders...

It'll pick up before the walleye opener. I had some pretty bad luck the last couple times I was up there. 3 trips to be exact. One this winter and 2 late in the summer. I am thinking on making a trip earlier in the summer/ late spring after walleye opener to try my "luck" again.

It seems the forum traffic has dropped all across the state! I keep tabs on several different areas and not much is posting anywhere. I seem to be spending more time in the clean-ups area reading about politics. How sad is that!

I get nervous when it's that quiet. It's like the shower scene in the Alfred Hitchcock movie where you know something bad is going to happen but you don't know what it is. I guess maybe I should just enjoy it. I will admit it is a lot better than trying to dodge vehicles zooming 40 m.p.h. down the road, seeing trash everywhere and having to listen to the constant drone of augers when you are trying to fish outside.

Shaky legs, aka the lonely man.

I was taught in the army to never volunteer for anything. I also learned to not send a fool on an important mission. Oh what the [PoorWordUsage]! Doc and I will be reporting for duty around 01100 hours Drill Sargent P.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that

      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
