      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 .

Rick

Matt Johnson will be giving a seminar at the Gander Mountain in Mankato, MN at 7pm on Thursday, January 20.

Matt's topic will be Subtle Approaches When Panfish Turn Finicky - Location and Presentation.

He will cover some of the finesse aspects of fishing for panfish during the winter. Learn about different techniques and strategies for catching more panfish through the ice.

Everything from where to find fish all the way to triggering the finicky ones to stop sniffing and strike your presentation.

Matt will also be free to answer questions and talk with people after the seminar as well as show you some of the tools he uses and how he uses them to trigger more panfish when ice fishing.

Mark January 20th on your calendar to visit Gander Mountain in Mankato, MN.

I also went last night. Got there a little bit late, but it was certainly well worth the time spent. I took several things from the presentation that hopefully will help produce more success on the lake fishing panfish.

You gotta love Matt's enthusiasm. The presentation was very professional and of great quality. Tom simply brings years of putting his time in, and that is invaluable. I think we can all relate to Matt's need to buy fishing jigs. Needless to say, I left $40 at Gander last night on "stuff I dont need". What else is new? That place consistantly takes its toll on my savings account balance!

Thanks go out to the FM Board for getting the message out on here, I would have never known. Great job Matt and Tom and thanks! Now when can you do a more hands on seminar out on the lake?? LOL

It is probably a good idea to post all of Gander's "seminars" on the websight. At least Mankato's please? Any Gander Employees interested in helping out sales?

So now its out to the lake tonight with some new ideas! Thanks again, Jamie

Jamie,

Tim Cain and myself will be doing several instore seminars. We problably won't do any till soft water fishing rolls around. We talked last night about doing some trolling techniques with planer boards, lead core, making jigs, tying spinners, rigging and so on. When I have done presentations in the past I like to use multi media, (ie. videos I make, slide shows, ect..) I know that they will be posted on ganders website, if Rick doesn't have a problem with it I'll make sure to keep you informed aswell.

      What did you and Wanderer find for ice thicknesses at the lakes you were on?
    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them.

      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!

      I found a new unopened Minnesota V6.0 on Craigslist for 75$ and it was only 2 miles from my house saved me a trip to Cabela's.

      I’m sure we will still be waiting for a bit for even walkable ice but hopefully people in the area can keep there eyes and ears open and let the rest of us know how the ice is and when it get here.
