      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 .

I really liked the "snapshot" feature! Real cool! I enjoyed watching the Drake crew enjoying themselves!! They are usually so tied up pleasing customers, It's nice to see them get out on the water!!

Could have been a tad closer at times, but nice over all!

Wow!!

Thanks folks!

Yah we had a great time!

I was a bit nervous, I expected that pike to either snap or bite me off any second. Its always a rush catching big fish on light tackle. A technique I have used for years has always been backreeling...at least till I could adjust the drag! Its help me land many big fish on light line when taken by suprise.

Look for only more good things to come!

Cool Video Rick.

I especially like the cameraman in the rental boat fighting a big pike without a landing net. Sounds like a situation I would get myself into! wink.gif

Rick (LB)~Just finished watching the video and thought it turned out great! Kyle got a kick out of it too! What a great day on the water that was, lots of slab crappies, some nice pike, beautiful walleye caught and released ranging in size from 12" to Kyle's 24"er and the sheephead were biting like crazy too. I think Darin is now hooked on Upper Red Lake after that day!

What a perfect day out on the open water, limits of slabs were caught by all our folks here so the cleaning room was busy and we added several photos to our Guest Photos section of our site, and to top the day off..a big fish fry!

That northern was a monster pushing 20 lbs, even though I told BigDar it was 15 lbs (he's been whining about that). There was no way I was going to miss getting this on tape for all of you to see. So forget the net... I'm saying to myself..I'm getting good footage here!!!!

Watch as BigDar panics, telling me over and over to get the net. Of course I'm not budging to net that monster just yet. Like I said, there's footage in that bruiser pike yet!

When I did finally one hand net it that pike did not fit into the net and it was a big net. You didn't see it, but Darin was in sheer panic stage while I was netting that big girl. He really was because it was his Biggest Pike ever!!!

I think BigDar now respects my netting skills. As soon as you see the camera leave that swimming pike I netted it a thrashing monster pike one handed. Sorry BigDar for the heart attack. smile.gif

Oh, and did I tell you he caught it on a Berkley Powerbait 3" Minnow Chart/shad?

Does anyone else think BigDar is proud of his biggest pike ever? He sure seems to want to make sure I have it recorded well for posterity smile.gif

Fish like that brings out the kid in all of us grin.gif

What do YOU think? Do you like the videos?

Should we keep producing them for you?

We need YOUR input!

Please, let us know what you think. smile.gif

I suggest another format.. perhaps MPEG. Since us Mac users cannot view MWV files.

      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

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
