      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 .

Mike and Diane,

Just wanted to say thanks again for the hospitality over the last couple of days. Can't wait to get back up there again soon. I will definately recommend you to anyone that is looking for a place to stay in that area. Now just need to figure out a way for me to make a living up there and then we'll be neighbors grin.gif

Hey Paul...room in the Inn just for you (although somedays it's more like the nuthouse smile.gif!)

As of last night the accesses were doing really well and people were out all over with no problems. If you want, give us a call later and we'll give you today's update once people start coming back in. LOTS of really nice crappies came through the fish cleaning room last night and this morning!

Drake,

Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye last night. It was really late when we rolled through there and didn't see any lights on.

Just an update for you. Ice conditions were really good with 24 inches of ice in most places and the ice surface, once you got out a little from the accesses, was about the smoothest I've seen it all year.

We got a lot of nice fish with some of them just topping 14 inches. I will e-mail the photo of Tyler with his northern, not exactly sure how big it was, as we left the tape in the truck, but I would guess he was 38-40 inches. Tyler's face grin.gif. 11 years old and already experienced the trip of a lifetime.

So thanks again, and We will see you again this spring.

Thanks for the picture Paul~tell Tyler it's hanging in the office and the guys are already admiring it! Looks like the northern is nearly as big as Tyler smile.gif Loved his "thumbs up"..definitely a trip he will always remember. It's great when the kids are able to do well..the look on their faces says it all grin.gif

Hey Jiggle! Send the pics to us and I'll print em' out and put it up! What started out as a board is now also all around the board and starting on the next wall! Especially love the pic's of the kids smile.gif When you send it just let me know your young un's name (Jiggle Jr.?) as I like to put people's first names under it and something about the pic.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
