      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 drove through the most tremendous storm I have ever experienced just before 7:00 this morning on County Road #35 between Underwood and Dalton.

What the heck was that? Was there a tornado mixed in there? For the most part, I could not see more than a truck length or two, and sometimes not at all. At one point, lightning struck a tree directly in front of me and the top of the tree landed right in the road, but the wind was so strong it blew off the road!

Jeez, I hate those! I got caught on the road east of perham one evening in a nasty hail/windstorm, I was pulling my old lund and the wind blew the boat and trailer sideways on the highway. We ended up pulling over and riding it out, pickup is full of hail dents now... oh well. lol glad your safe bucket!! Paul

I saw that one coming! I was sure glad I did not have to drive through it.

I was laying in bed when the static on the AM radio woke me up about 5 am. I checked on the radar and could see that it was nastly looking and heading for us.

I had been dealing with some beaver problems the last couple of weeks, so I got in my truck to go see if they had reconstructed a dam before that storm hit.

I was on my way home and at the junction of Hwy 210 and 119 just east of Underwood about 6:25. I could see that whole system moving in. Along the leading edge of that front were wispy looking white clouds extending nearly to the ground. I did not see any rotation in them, and it did not look like a wall cloud. I had never seen a gust front look like that before. It was really creepy.

I live on South Turtle, so I tore on home to get everything battend down. I got in the house with about 5 minutes to spare. When that wind came up, WOW! I could not see a hundred yards. I have a huge cottonwood tree that hangs over my house. It is right on the edge of the water now, and that saturated root ball had me concrned. I grabbed the wife and kid and headed down to the basement to watch the show. Power went out, and was out for about 2 hours. That wind was so strong it looked like it was peeling sheets off the lake surface.

      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.

      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
