      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 .

In the day of no customer service,was very pleased with Bill and Al at Midwestrodandreel.Purchased a new summer fishing rod from them and there is nowhere else that you could go to get this kind of service.They sit down with you and show you how the rod is built,ask you what type rod you are looking,help you with any questions you have about type of rod your interested in.It has been a long time since I have made a purchase and left the store and thought this is the greatest service I have ever received. On top of that it looks to be a high quality piece of equipment. If you need a new fishing pole, summer or winter this is with out a dought the place to go. Al and Bill great job!!!!!

I'll second that! These guys know rods and the nice thing is that if you have a specific request they can accomodate you! They use high quality materials and take pride in what they do. Keep up the good work guys.

Isn't it nice to make a phone call to a company and the owner answers the phone or send an email and know that it's going straight to the head guy. Call or email Bill and he'll build a rod to your specifications. www.midwestrodandreel.com I've got the MIM28

28" Medium rod from Midwest. This is the rod I've been using for eyes and its working out great for me. Very good sensitivity, good backbone and a nice tip. I have a JR's ultra 8 reel on this rod and the balance is perfect. Its a pleasure to use this rod when I'm out jigging eyes all day. Up till now I've built most of my rods. Theres something to be said about the satisfaction and pride you get when you build your own rod but using Bills rods, I can see the pride he puts into them and knowing it was built for you will give you that pleasure.

Guys,

Wow!! Your kind words are very much appreciated from both Bill and myself. It was the main goal when we started our company that customer service would be the first and most important item we could offer. It is always nice to hear when you have satisfied customers who we know will take as much pride in using the rods as we did building them.

Thanks again for the great feedback!

I have 3 midwest rods. One UL wiht a wood handle, on ML amd one M.

Definitely super sensitivity and craftsmanship in these babies. I am happy with them so far.

For those of you thinking about a custom rod contact them and see what they have to say.

I have 4 Midwest Rods and love them all. I agree that Bill and Als customer service is second to none. As I have said before I had Bill do some special tweaking to my rods and they turned out even better than I expected. Something about using a rod that was made for you exactly how you wanted it that i love. Plus its got your name on it so you know nobody else has one just like it.

Bill has done some spiral wraps for me and man are they cool. Never used one before but now that I have Im sold on that design. Check them out at www.midwestrodandreel.com

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
