      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 .

"Bass fishermen watch Monday night football, drink beer, drive pickup trucks and prefer noisy women with big breasts.
Trout fishermen watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine, drive foreign cars with passenger-side air bags and hardly think about women at all.
This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact that trout fishermen spend most of the time immersed up to the thighs in ice-cold water."
- New Yorker Magazine, June 13, 1994

Quoting the late Robert Traver, outdoor writer from Michigan:

"It's not that fishing is so terribly important. Rather, it's that everything else in life is as equally unimportant, and a lot less fun."

Traver also has some terrific words to say about the places where folks fish -- worth being there. You can find him in just about any collection of famous quotes.

(He's the author of Anatomy of a Murder, the book made into one of the best movies ever filmed. Filmed on location in Marquette Mich and the UP.)

File under general inspiration:

Thoreau's, "In wilderness is the preservation of the world"(?)

Perhaps, Frost's, "Two roads diverged in the woods. I choose the one less traveled and that has made all the difference".(??)

Chief Seattle's, "Man did not weave the web of life - he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."

Sounds like a fun project good luck!

Don't quote me on these...

Give a man a fish - he'll eat for a day.
Teach a man to fish - he'll eat for a lifetime...then buy more rods/reels, more tackle, a boat, a new truck...

"I sit in happy meditation on my rock, pondering, while my line dries again, upon the ways of trout and men. How like fish we are; ready, nay eager to seize upon whatever new thing some wind of circumstance shakes down upon the river of time! And how we rue our haste finding the gilded morsel to contain a hook."

Aldo Leopold, "A Sand County Almanac"

Here's a couple of Quotes

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a
shortage of fishing poles.
Doug Larson

Very little is known of the Canadian country since it is rarely visited by anyone but the Queen and illiterate sport fishermen.
P. J. O'Rourke

There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an
idiot.
Steven Wright

Fishing is a delusion entirely surrounded by liars in old clothes.

Hmm.. I have a perpetual calander full of these: I'll add a few of my favoirtes to here:

"you cannot bring a hook into a fish's mouth unless there is food on it that pleases him." -Juliana Berners

"It is not a fish until it is on the bank" -Irish Proverb

"Give me mine angle; we'll to the river there,
My music playing far off, I will betray Tawny-finn'd fishes; my bended hook shall pierce Their slimy jaws" -William Shakespeare. Anthony and Cleopatra (Hey.. I never knew Shakespeare was an Angler... perhaps that's why he got a line of fishing equipment named after him? wink.gif )

Just a couple of old ones-

A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

It is better to go fishing and think about God than it is to go to Church and think about fishing.

Noble Virtues Of Fishing
"Fishing is the chance to wash ones soul with pure air. It brings meekness and inspiration , reduces our egotism , soothes our troubles and shames our wickedness."

I'm finding some gems here...thanks.
whatever doesn't make the walls, will find itself on a magnet or t-shirt!....

Fishing seems to have the most bits of wisdom...anything more toward hunting, or outdoors in general?

I have a bunch of them for you.

No theory will adequately server to explain why a person goes fishing. Christopher Lehmann-Huapt

There will be no joy on long winter nights making reinventory of the tackle unless there be behind it the indelible recollection of having caught a few big ones,and the anticipation of bigger ones to come. Herbert Hoover

All good fisherman stay young until they die,for fishing is the only dream of youth that doth not grow stale with age. J.W.Muller

All Amercans believe that they are born fishermen.For a man to admit a distaste for fishing would be like denouncing mother-love and hating moonlight. John Steinbeck

You can't catch fish on a dry line. Anonymous

The fishing is always good.Its the catching that can prove difficult. Steve Walli

All American boys spit on the bait. Herbert Hoover

Everyone is born with the same amount of fishing savvy;none.It must be learned. Gary Soucie

Yup all of these come off the top of my head.Ok I got themn off an old fishing calendar I had. smile.gif

      One from Sunday

      Fish Lake Baits in Harris had some nice large leeches a couple of weeks ago. Cliff

      After 4 days on a Rainy lake houseboat we managed a walleye fry 3 nights. They where on the deeper mid lake reefs which is no secret, but they wanted minnows. That was the hard part, finding bigger minnows. To my surprise I was able to land a few each afternoon on 5" plastic rigged. 2 boats, 6 people, 47 eyes where clicked biggest 24", smallest 6" and every stop in between. We did fish some bays and the pike were willing to play!city

      The OP was given the system by someone else who was having problems with it. @TNFL If the above statement is correct, try it on your system and see if the fuse blows.  The problem may have been on the other person's rig.   Is it worth contacting the manufacturer for tech help or sending in for testing/service?
    • Wheres_Walter
      Sunday and Monday we caught lots of 15-16" fish at 12-14 FOW.  All on Chartruese jigs with half a crawler.   A couple in the high teens and one 21" as well.  
    • Wanderer
      Leeches are somewhat seasonal and not as prevalent later in the open water season (now).  It's the nature of the bait. Vados would be my first call between the Cities and Mille Lacs but you could always try calling a few shops on the southern side of the lake.
    • delcecchi
      Back in the old days..... before I retired and we used to come up labor day, I used to fish steep breaks into deep water.  My favorite spot was the north/west tip of Schmidts Island.   There is a little flat than breaks into like 40 feet out in front, more or less, of the dock that goes with the little chalet style cabin.   There are probably other spots along that headolakes shore of the island that are good, so check it out with modern electronics.   I don't know if that area is still working or not.   Jigging raps might work there.  I used a rig with a pretty heavy sinker so I could tip toe over the rocks up and down the break.   Caught what was my PB walleye for a long time on that spot.   Neighbor got a 30 incher somewhere along there.  This is all historical, so maybe not much help anymore.  BTW I typically fished there in the evening.   Never really tried it during the day. 
    • SkunkedAgain
      Jeez no. I can barely remember the netting discussion, let alone which side that I was arguing! Yup, you can see us cruising past quite often probably intent on satisfying the little one's quest for some ice cream at Moosebirds. She loves Sue and Ron. I'll definitely wave or stop by if I see you. I'll be up the next two weekends.
    • Wakemup
      How do you guys like to fish the west end as we transition into September and early fall? My next planned time at the cabin will be Labor day, I'm sure it'll be plenty busy on the lake but hoping to find a few quiet spots in the mornings and evenings to do some walleye fishing.
