      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 was pulling the anchor up one time last summer and had caught a pole with the anchor. The reel was shot but the pole is excellent. Also caught a dead racoon someone threw in the river...yuck..

Couple of summers ago we were out fishing & I saw something bobbing in the water. I usually pick up garbage if I see it, so went to investigate. It was a nice Fenwick spinning rod, with the tip broke off, probably 3-6" missing. I own several Fenwicks so knew that many have lifetime warranties, so I took it in. I got a beautiful new medium light spinning rod. We assumed somebody got frustrated about breaking their rod & threw it in the lake, there was no reel on it. Thanks for the great rod. By the way, Fenwick's a great company, they stand behind their stuff.

* a rod and reel

* lines with lures on many occasions

* clams and snails on many occasions

I've also caught fish with lures in their lips a couple times. Weird how those things work out...

Heard about a guy on Mille Lacs fighting something for half an hour, getting his lure to the boat, then discovering he had hooked another line, picked that up and kept a fight on for another half hour, and ended up catching a 50 inch musky on a shad rap someone had broke off. unconfirmed but interesting all the same.

I was fishing on lake Ripley in Litchfield 5 years ago, Had on a black and white daredevil and hook into something big, about a few min after pulling on this snag trying to keep my lucky lure up came a very mucky looking log,
We used the net to get it in the boat and here was a hatchet.
Cleaned it up some and took it up to the museum of minnesota and it was made around the turn of the century. Around 1885 and 1900. They found this buy the name that they were able to barely see on the one side of the blade after doing some work.
It now hangs on my wall

I caught a dead lamb in the Blue Earth river when I was a kid. It put up a heck of a fight in the current.
