      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 .

Can anyone that was out on the pond last weekend with a TV let me know if you were able to get TV reception? We are heading up for the weekend with a battery operated TV and hope to get the Vikes on Sunday. Thanks.

I've tried it a couple different years and never pulled any stations with a portable TV. You'll have to go to a local resort bar to see the Vikes I'm afraid. I couldn't even get it on a radio.. frown.gif

Bring a good quality radio, and you should be able to pull in 790AM and get the game. Sometimes the tuners in the TV/Radio combos are not that good at pulling in weaker signals.

Added this link on edit, should be enough radio stations close to LOW for you to get the game on a radio.

A GE Superradio is a good unit, used one of those for years.

I now have a CCrane radio, and it is by far the best radio I have ever owned. The weak AM stations that thing can tune is amazing.

I DONT THINK YOU WILL SEE IT ON PORTABLE TVS.

I couldn't pick up 790 last weekend in my fishhouse, but could in my pickup. The Vex was causing some interference and I believe the steel on the fish house is tough on the signal.

For those of you who have a portable satellite system (like Sirius) if you're sending a signal to your vehicle antenna, you can park close to your house and send the same signal to a portable radio in the house that's tuned to the same station in your truck. I know Sirius has all NFL games for sure. You can also listen to any other station available with your subscription. I was lucky enough to get this set up for Xmas and went to LOW the next day. It even came with a remote that allowed me to change the station without leaving the house. Worked great all three days we were fishing.

      Sorry, don't remember TJ Hooker.  Besides I make it a practice to avoid hookers....  (rim shot)

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
