      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 .

River pro boats??

Anyone that owns a jet boat been on the stretch of the Miss between Becker and Clearwater lately? The other day I was working in the back yard and heard a boat approaching a lot faster than they usually do. It looked just like one of the river pros Ive seen from thier site, it had 3 or 4 people in it and was really hauling A** Then as it passes by my yard it turns in closer to shore heading between my nieghbors shoreline and the island directly out from him about 40 yards shocked.gif I have rode my 4-wheeler out to that island before when the water was just about as high and all I could think when I saw them headed that way was I better yell at the wife to call 911 while I start running down to help. Now ive heard that those boats dont draw much water but WOW that was a pretty big boat and there are BIG ROCKS just under the surface EVERYWHERE out there. Does the lower unit on those things go below the boat at all? And if they do hit a rock do they just slide right off of it or what ?

Kevin Turner might be able to answer this better than I, but I noticed Dave Genz was using one last fall and cruising all over with it. It might be his boat?? I think he lives on that stretch of the river.

They're nice boats!! Nav

Iron Cowboy, I hope that River Pro was behaving. LOL. There is nothing that hangs below the boat and the bottom design provides lift as it travels. So most of the time if you are in moving water and you don't see the rock sticking out you should clear it. I'll be in your area next week. If you would like a demo give me a call on my cell. 314-378-2685.

Kevin - Good news! While my wife was trying to figure out what vehicle we should get to replace her Jimmy when it goes belly to the sky, she asks me, all cool & stuff, "what's one of those River Pros weigh?" Uh huh. See where that's going?

I almost asked her to marry me - then remembered I already married her.

Not this year, maybe next, but before too very long I'll sign one up. Just like Dennis', with the high sides (good kid-safety selling point, those high sides are).

Oh man I can hardly sit still just thinking about it. When I saw what he pulled out of his live-well Sunday I understood why that model has a livewell so dang huge.

Darn fine product, Sir.

      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!
