      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 .

No, he's not Tim. I'm Tim. I know that my name says Matt, but I thought it would be funny if I picked a name that rhymes with fat, you know, because I'm fat.

After 3 months of planning fishing opener, the bizzo told me last night that I had to spend time with her frown.gif

I'm so PO'd right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was going to spend Midnight to Saturday after noon down on a southern MN lake (Lura) and spend Saturday afternoon and evening on the MN river. But looks like I have to leave all the fish there for someone else

Korn...bring her with. Ask her to go along and maybe she won't think it's such a bad idea. Most likely she'll be happy first, because you asked her to go along and second, because you are spending time with her. Just a thought...good luck. smile.gif

Tonka would be pretty busy with alot of trafic. But it still sounds good.

Korn,
Just go anyway, so you don't get any for a while. Opener is worth it smile.gif. you still have YOUR life to live! With how much you fish, she should know how important it is to you.

Just to put the record straight. I did ask her to go with but she couldn't becuase she had a project for school that she had to work on, but yet I was still supposed to spend time with here when she was working on the project. Then a day later I was told that I never ask her to do anything with me. Then last night I find out that she was already planning going up to Mille Lacs on Sunday with her ex hubby.

guess what.....I'm following "Whatts" suggestion and I am going fishing this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back to the subject at hand... I'll be out on Tonka. I have done well there the last several openers. This year I am going out at midnight, which is the earliest I have ever gone out. This brings up a question. I normally fish 8-12 fow on the opener, and do very well there. Since I am going earlier than usual, should I target shallower water, like 3-6 feet? Any advice about shallow eyes on Tonka would be appreciated.

My question exactly. On Tonka, for example, trolling cranks after dark...the weeds are reviving, growing, but not up. Do you find 3-6 FOW with weeds, or 3-6 FOW clear? Normally I'd seek a weedline, maybe 10, 15 feet deep, and work the edge, but there aren't edges in the shallows as much, just areas where the weeds are not yet full. Suggestions?

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
