      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 .

Hey jigglestik I read about your auger
flying out of your truck I have one thats right up there with that Monday night
My buddy and I were on our way home from
red with my truck a snowmobile traier
with our six wheelers on it we had just stopped at M&H gas station in Grand Rapids
and checked straps and everything out
and proceded on our way home down the
river road really rough this time of year
got about ten miles and were BSing &
whatever when I feel this thump
& bump!! but there was no Bump there I
looks in the rearview mirror and I see his headlight pointing up in the air and then
down and it swerving down the road behind
us I almost threw up right then and there
so I turn around go back a ways and there its sitting up in someones front yard
ON ITS WHEELS!!! It missed two road signs
by about six inches each a telephone line
box and came to stop about two feet from
a light pole! WHAT LUCK!!!
If it would have been mine it would be in a
hundred pieces right now

hey,that would have sucked. i have to confess though the auger after all that bouncing and tumbling at about 50 miles per hour, handled it pretty well. i just had to bounce on the extension a couple times to get rid of the built in shooks shake affect. she fired rite up and never missed a beat. how much did your little escapade cost? brake levers, handle bars,fenders, rims, axels can get kinda spendy. i used to haul bikes around back when they made the good straps, and i still doubled them up. now days its 3-4-5 straps per machine and making sure it's in gear, and setting the parking brake.that's just on the auger. can't be to careful.see ya on the ice---jigglestick---

Kelly , now "RoadKill" had spied some sunglasses in the road. It is in his nature to recover those items that others discard. Being the spry and nimble treasure hunter that he is,, he mearly slid of the back of the machine without me noticing!!! smile.gif( and we were going about 40 mph) He barely even made a dust cloud!!( of course we were on the pavement)!!!! wink.gif

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
