      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 .

We had a great time bow hunting in north dakota. I got a 9 point and fonz58's son Adam got a nice 8 point for his first archery buck.

Yes he was still in velvet. Probably half of the deer we saw were still in velvet.

I don't hunt...but I can appreciate a nice buck!

I'm starting to think that Eyeguy does nothing but hunt & fish... must be a rough life!

Man... that makes me miss home in NE N.D. The crops(canola, sunflowers, mustard, soybeans...etc.) really give these deer the necessary nutrients without having to work too hard for food. Then these deer can really hide in the open prairies and get away from people. Also, the buck/doe ratios are better managed and much more in balance in most areas to help sustain a more healthy population of deer. Each year I would have at least 5 bucks that were 140 class and up that I would chase around our farm. Even 1 180-190 class beautiful 7X7. My dad still living on the farm takes pictures of some of these brutes and sends them back to me once in a while. I still go back for rifle hunting and am waiting for the elusive 170+ buck to come my way!!!

I think I would fall out of my tree if a 170 class came by. Man that would make the heart race!! River was up about 4 inches from yesturday. Little slower action but still a good night. 1 at 18 tonight was the biggest.
BLB I was a die hard walleye guy for about 30 years, thats why I picked eyeguy.
Big Mike I try to hunt and fish as much as possible. Yes I work. I have to to buy all these lures and stuff!! wink.gif My wife is very gracious and understands how much I love to be outdoors. I've been that way since I was a kid but I am starting to feel the cold over the last couple years so I like a warm blanket on a cold winter day. OK enough of the emotional stuff. Get out there and rip some lips!! grin.gif

I try to get out as much as possible too - I'd fish all day everyday (on soft water, hang it up come time for ice) but the lady would freak. She is pretty understanding and is getting better, but I've still got to work for my days on the water!

I find compromise is the best thing...that and foot massages always seem to add a couple hours to a day on the water. If she is happy - then I'm happy.

      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!
