      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 .

Yesterday after meeting jigglestick out on the lake where we looked around at the various "empty spots" that should be tried him and his little caravan headed out one way and I went the other way. Soon the phone rang and he wanted to know the Zipcode for here???????? My first thought was that he had finally gone fishing one too many days and need a new place to live but he NEEDED TO SET UP HIS SATELITE DISH!!!!!!! shocked.gif What has happened?????? This is the person that used to drag his portable around by hand all night with his headlamp on looking for new places to try and now he is setting up T.V.! What's he gonna do watch fishing shows? Or maybe cartoons seeing as he gave me a new "Mickey Mouse" fishing rod and reel
so I'ld have some better equipment. smile.gif The scary part is that NINETOE is also here this weekend and when he sees that dish he going to be standing there all night with his tin foil hat on yelling "Beam me up".
I really should be nice to jigglestick as he gave me a nice lined shirt with a hood but I think that is a joke too as when I tried it on this morning the hood covers my face and all the buttons go down the middle of my back. frown.gif

Im a Satellite dealer if he has a Directv receiver he needs to point it using a compass I think he can get one at west winds, South at 190 degrees then he needs to set the elevation at about 36, on the screen setup you have a meter which shows you on the tv your signal strengh,it should be 75 signal or higher, move it slow and Have Kelly tell him what it reads then tighten it down. Then both of you can watch tv together channel 606 is the outdoor station with lots of fishing tips they can use. If that doesnt work I have a meter to site it in Ill just tell my wife I have a install up north and throw the rods in and hit the road. I read your posts all the time and get lol you guys are a hoot. Fished Mille lacs New years with the boys one 20" walleye on the mud flat in 22ft, spoke to another guy on the same spot he said they caught over 30 fish early before any traffic, fished east of Garrison Reef. Good luck fishing Walleye Bob

kelly, maybe i'm just getting soft. maybe my portable was just to heavy with fish to pull it around all night. what did you think of the happy channel? she's my friend smile.gif to many more long weekends up there this year and she maybe the only friend i have left! then i'd have to figure out my address out on the lake....0001 crappie lane, upper red lake. trouble is the mail man would never find it.
well putz and moron are all wore out, and heading south as i type. they will be back in a couple weeks. **** putz is a good cook. not bad at catching them big gators too. a 33" and a 37" and two that broke the hooks!i will post fishing results on a seperate topic, so stay tuned.

fishnutbob,
It wasn't 606 they were watching. grin.gif
jigglestick,
Our plan was the right plan but poorly executed. We either didn't send Labs far enough or we didn't send a good enough fisherman. smile.gif

Well, im bringing up the portable, but most likely some of us will use his houses. What do you think, does he put the houses over fish. Biggest slab gets the pot so i need to cover my bets.of course if i loose that bet i can always get my money back playing cribbage

      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!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?
