      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 Waskish fly by

Recommended Posts

Feeling the pain for a couple guys this morning. First light a truck pulling a big glass boat goes flying by my place. Then a few minutes later another. Half hour later I am having coffee as a third truck pulling a 620 whistles by.

I just came in from scraping the frozen slush of the garage slab and all three rigs were headed back south...ouch.

guess they didn't read the river reports carefully and didn't notice the overnight temp wasn't helping their situation!!

That entire stretch has been good to me. I like that corner as the walleye anglers tend to be further downstream so I am not anchored in the middle a bunch of guys drifting, and they are not jigging around my 80lb test or 100 foot anchor rope.

Nope they went up without calling or checking and could not get the big boats in. They turned it around and headed back home as have many guys this last week. Some just figure "hey! It's April Jack, lets go to the Rainy".

Must be all the pros itching to get up there so they can shoot some video of the latest and greatest monster walleye bait.  I think last year there had to have been at least a dozen MUST HAVE baits in order to catch those big ones.  smile  

 

Yet the guys in the 14ff tins wearing carhardts said the secret bait was whatever you tied on your line. 

 

Who is a guy ever to believe??   confused

smile Amen brother, Amen!

You wouldn't be a "pro" if you were caught using a simple jig and a minnow.

Jon, I think I hear a little Si Robertson impression in there? laugh

Man, that is an expensive ride that could've been avoided with a simple phone call.

I always want to ask all the self proclaimed pros what their "sponsorship package" is from the companies whose apparel they have plastered on from head to toe.

I know, I know, they aren't wearing it to look important, they are wearing it because its more comfortable....LOL

I got word that frontier is open to big boats and i plan on being in deer river when freds opens at 6! I know its cold and gona snow but i got a new I pilot im dyeing to try. Also its a crapshoot either the water is cold and the fish are not in the river or its wide open rising with a chance to muddy up at any moment. Its april 6th time to HOOK UP THE boat. I will post my 4 day fishing report on the other thread. I bet jonny will be anchored up in a hole regardless of the weather or traffic.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
