      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 .

Did you get your Gals out for opener?

GUYS!

Did any of you get your gals out on the lake for opener? How'd they do?! Just curious... smile.gif

I had only 25 minutes to spend on the dock...I caught a sunny, a sheeps head (sp?), a small bass, and FINALLY a walleye! Pretty exciting!! I have Matt to thank for baiting my hook wink.gif Thanks MP

Happy fishing!

I got off work at 4:45am and went home and woke up my wife and two boys and we spent an awsome day out on Independance. My wife caught a 22 incher. The boys 4 and 7 were able to be in the boat for 8 hours! It doesn't get any better than that!

(Of course the one walleye I caught beat hers by a quarter inch.)

I tried - but she had way too much studying to do. frown.gif This was the first year we didn't do opener together.

She said she was glad she didn't go - too cold and windy for her. I'll get her back out there next year for opener, though. smile.gif

I got my girl(MattsGal) out on opening night for a little while. She is a great fisher-woman. She caught one walleye, one bass, a sheepshead, and a sunny. She did all of this in twenty minutes. I didn't even catch a fish and she was pulling them in. Hope everyone had good luck......

My gals had to stay home, they are a little to young for opener. Instead, they had a cupcake!

No, but I'm finally getting this Matt's (me) girl out tonight! I'm going to show her why catching a limit of walleyes is soooo addicting. I'll give you her report tomorrow.

Fisher Dave played guide for my girl and I on Saturday in his neck of the woods. She had a lot of school work to get done over the weekend but I convinced her that a little fresh air and time away from the Cities is just what we needed. Had a blast, Dave and his family are gracious hosts. And Dave put us on fish. We caught around 30 pike that day, although I could only account for 5. My gal outfished me with 9 and Dave made up the difference. Can't wait to go back! And Dave, if you're reading this, THANKS AGAIN smile.gif!!

Yep, the gal got out with us men too. She always does and she even baits her own hook. I still have to take care of the leeches, but hey, no complaints here. She(Molly) even takes the fish off the hook too. She has to wear a glove or use a rag, but she gets it done. Hey, I even used a rag for years. I couldn't stand that fish smell for years. I can't blame her. I couldn't imagine what it'd be like if I didn't get her hooked on the whole fishing thing. I should probable listen to everyone and land her while I can. A few of you have met her, she's a keeper. I still outfish her every time though. I really don't get it. I set her up with the same thing I use. It must be the technique. Or, as I know many responses would state, she LET'S me catch more and bigger ones so I can feel manly. Yeah right, she can't wait for the time she lands the "big one" while fishing with me. I'm sure it'll happen sometime.

Gals that fish and catch fish...forget the dog, that gal is a mans best friend.

Catch 'em fast!

Well, my gal schooled me last night! I set her up with a jig and minnow, hit one of my sure fire spots, and she was pulling 13-17" walleye one after another. She pulled 7, I got 4 in a couple of hours.

I'm not quite sure if I turned her into an avid fisherwoman, but she definitly liked it! I think I have a new summer project!

My woman refuses to fish, no matter what. She's go with me to the water but won't get the line wet. She says she used to fish as a kid and didn't like it then so she won't like it now.
