      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 .

Since I just started fishing muskies last year...

1. Beat my measley 38" personal best.
2. Catch one on a topwater lure shocked.gif.
3. Catch more than one muskie this year.

Walleyes?

I would always like to beat my personal best walleye at 29" grin.gif.

Well, this one's for my wife. I would like her to catch some walleyes up at Vermillion in Mid-June; she has never caught one before. And who knows, maybe she will catch "the BIG one" shocked.gif. An even more challanging goal would be for her to actually enjoy catching fish smile.gif.

And of course, get my 4 year old son Lucas hooked on fishing so I will always have a good excuse to go...."But dear, you don't want to deprive the poor child of his natural instincts to catch fish, do you?" This is already working according to plan, wink.gif HeHeHeHe.....

Hello Guys and Gals,

Since I am new to the sport I have many many goals...here are just a few I need to work on this summer:

1. Catch my first Muskie.
2. Catch a big Bass (one that would even impress Matt)
3. Learn how to cast bait like Matt no matter what type of bait or reel I fish with.
4. Learn how to tie line and put hooks on.
5. Be able to put my own leech on without getting grossed out! smile.gif
6. Get out and fish on other lakes rather than just Waconia.
7. Catch a fish (any kind) big enough to mount and brag about smile.gif
8. Learn how to back a trailer into the water.
9. Learn how to drive a boat.
10. Learn how to fillet fish.

I think some of these goals could be mastered by the end of summer, no problem. i'm getting excited just thinking about them!

(Hey guys and gals, if you are ever on Waconia I'm either in Matt's boat with him, fishing or lying on the dock at Harms Point ((in a red bikini)). Come say hi...I'd love to meet you!)

Good luck with your goals everyone!! Happy Fishing!

<MattsGal><<

I HAVE BEEN FISHING WITH MY KIDS (3 BOYS, 3 GIRLS, AND YES THEY ARE GOOD FISHIN GIRLS) FOR OVER 20 YEARS. I AM AMAZED AT HOW ONCE WE GET ONTO THE LAKE ALL OF OUR PROBLEMS ON SHORE ARE NOT DISCUSSED, IT IS LIKE A TIME OUT FROM THE HASSLES OF LIFE THERE IS NO BETTER ACTIVITY TO SHARE WITH YOUR FAMILY THAN FISHIN AND CAMPIN. I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GIVE IT A TRY.

FISHIN IS GREAT

I'm liking this thread... what could be better than fishing goals with summer weather at our doorstep smile.gif

* Teach my wife to catch more than just sunfish smile.gif
* Have my daugther catch something worthy of a story (to replace her bullhead story)
* Put more time in catching walleye
* Catch some trout on Christmas
* Keep my boat as wet as possible

Hey, what a great topic!

Seems like lots of people want to learn a lake better, try new or different lakes, or beat their personal best fish. All are great goals.

Few of mine are:

1. Get some of my friends more interested in fishing. I've got one hooked on icefishing, now I've got to get him and a few others hooked on open water.

2. Attend more FM events. FM Gathering in Crookston will be the next one I make it too! July 10th if anyone is interested.

3. Fish more metro lakes - Harriet, Calhoun, etc.

4. Get my icehouse built for next winter. I've got a long ways to go on that one.

5. Upgrade my Zercom Colorpoint to a Marcum LX-3.

6. And my big goal for this fall is to shoot a banded duck. That one is more like playing the lottery but you have to set your goals high.
