      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 .

I'm definitely going to try to make it. I haven't gone to one before. Do I need to sign-up or is it just a show-up thing?

No need to sign up, just show up and be eager to learn from the energetic and one-of-a-kind Deitz Dittrich! Deitz is a bass geek (I'm sure he's fine with me calling him that grin.gif) and he not only has a lot of tournament experience but he also enjoys teaching others about the finer points of bass fishing. A worth while seminar if you are a bass angler, or if you are just looking at picking up a few more pointers on how to land more bass this year.

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

I wanted to invite everyone again, tonight Forest Lake Gander MTN... It would be great to fill that seminar room and show the power of FishingMinnesota.Com.

I am really excited to meet some new FishingMinnesota faces, and catch up with some old friends tonight as well.

Lets talk some bass fishing!

For those that weren't able to attend, Dietz put on a GREAT presentation on Early Season Bass techniques. The crowd was small but there was lots of questions/answer time and some real good tips given out!

He even gave out some of his secret tips and baits that he uses early season cool.gif

Dietz- One question--> Why do you tend to target NE corners of lakes when the shallow waters tend to warm up faster? I was meaning to ask you when you had the lake slide up, but didn't.

Thanks Capt and Ralph for the kind words...

To answer your question Capt. Usually, if the fish are in spawn or pre-spawn, if you have found the warmest water in the lake you have found the most active fish... If you found the most active fish, you catch more. The only time this would be different is if the fish in the noerthern part of a lake are done spawning, and the fish in the southern part of the lake have just started.. I really only see this happening if the lake is VERY large!

Deitz-

Once again, nice job buddy!!

It was nice to run into BDR, MJ5, Bechtold, Blimek, Captain B.R.K., Ralph Wiggum, BDR & Corey's kids, and others I'm forgetting.

If you keep flashing photos of large bass like those, I might have to take up bass fishing a little more seriously. Right now, they just get in the way when trying to catch bluegills. grin.gif

I couldn't agree more, excellent seminar Deitz! I picked up a lot of valuable information that I plan on putting to the test this open water season.

Deitz2-390x287.jpg

A lot of options out there for bass anglers, and having an understanding of what to use and when to use it can be the most complicated issue that a bass angler faces. Deitz really made it easy to understand some of the more important concepts and techniques needed to land more Early Season Bass.

Deitz22-390x294.jpg

We learned where to find bass during the early parts of the year, as well as spot-on-the-spot locations. Where will the bass be during different conditions and also what to throw at them when they are there.

Deitz3-390x294.jpg

Deitz also answered a ton of questions and demonstrated several different ways to rig up plastics, tie knots as well as a few different jigging techniques, just to name a few. Deitz even briefly mentioned pike tactics and touched on glow presentations as well smile.gif

An easy to follow, highly productive seminar in my opinion. Good job Deitz!

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

      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

      A variety.   Abu 5500c3, abu 5600 mag, revo sx, several others.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
