      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 .

Do you guys mind if I ask what kind of boats you have? I'd be curious to know in case I'm out on the water and I see any of you. Would like to put faces to names and say "hi" if I see ya out there.

I got a blue and white Warrior, dual counsol, wrap-around windshield and a merc on the back. My name's Eric.

Hope to see someone out there this year. I'll probably be fishing Washington and German (and maybe Jefferson).

My boat is a 1995 16' Lund Rebel (Red) with black 25hp Johnson. My buddys boat is a 17' Monark, Maroon and white. I hope to order a couple of FM decals and put one on my boat. Should be interesting to see how many people I run across during the year.

I'm usually out there in my hunting boat. It is a tan boat with a green and tan camo motor. She's a 14'er with a 25 hp mariner. I'll either be with my 3 year old son Nicholas, or with my choc. lab Haley. Hope to see you guys on the water this summer. I'll usually be on Madison or Washington. Sometimes I'll hit the smaller lakes if it is a little too windy. Later, Paul

Hey, thanks for the replies fellas. I'll keep this info in my boat and if I see a boat that looks as decribed, I'll stop by and see who it is. Hopefully it's one of you and not someone completely different! (probably get a strange look if that happens) smile.gif

I see you're from New Ulm. You know a guy by the name of Justin Black? I work with him and he's originally from New Ulm. He went to school at MVL. Just curious.

Fish'n guy

I run a Lund 1800 Fisherman (2004) with 135hp Mercury Optimax consul and a Yamaha T-8 Kicker consul on the back.

On the bow I have a Minn Kota CoPilot 60lb thrust.

The main reason for this boat is because I use it for salomon fishing on Lake Michigan and that water can be pretty rough so the T-8 and deep hull are ideal for this situation as well as for walleye fishing in the open water months.

I usually fish Madison, Tetonka, Gorman, and Clear lake and where a camo budweiser hat!!! Although I am sure there are many others the look just like me grin.gif!!

GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!1

Hey basscatcher,

I'm on Tetonka only 3 or 4 times a year, including opener, I don't know why I fish opener there but it has sort of become a tradition for me so I do.

Feel absolutely free to shout at me!

I'm in a green and beige 21' Crestliner sportfish, you can't miss it because it's the only one with a silver 150 Mariner along with a black 15 Merc on the back! I've never seen that combo before on a Crestliner so I'm pretty easy to spot!

I also run an FM sticker on the back.

Yell or ram into me or whatever if you see me!

Bald Eagle

I have a 17ft Crestliner Fishhawk with a 115 Mercury Optimax. The boat is a 2001 with black paint and a tan interior. The motor is a 2004. The boat came with a 115 Johnson but unfortunately it was a lemon. So far the Opti has been great. They gave me the blue salt water version, so it's easy to spot. I have a 4ft black antenna for the marine band. The bow mount trolling motor is a 55lb Minnkota with Auto Pilot and Copilot. The motor works good, but it is only a 12 volt and I should have went with the 24. I'm hoping adding another battery will solve the problem.

You'll find me in a 1850 fishhawk with a 115 merc opti. Black boat. You can't miss me--I'm the one chasing my 5 and 7 year old from bow to stern. 75% Madison/25% pick a lake. Hope to see you all out there soon.

Someone needs to put a spreadsheet together for all this info or everyone should throw a FM decal on their boat...lol. My memory is not what it used to be so I will not remember most of the boats. I am ordering a decal and hope to have it on my boat by opener. If you guys see it give me a holler, unless I am hammering them, then make it a whisper...lol. I think it would be cool to meet you guys. I am usually looking for someone to fish with.

I live on Washington so on that lake you will see me in a 15' Forester with a 50hp Johnson. On the other area lakes you will catch me in a green 20' Ranger with a 225 Evinrude or a 17' black Tuffy Fish n' Ski with a 90hp Evinrude, usually running the shores and weed lines for bass and/or pike. My partner and I will be usually wearing Falcon gear and Reel Fishing and Tackle gear. The Ranger will have a Reel Fishing and Tackle sticker on it.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      That the best sounding plan yet!! same to you and your party.

      Get em guys
    • monstermoose78
      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.
    • eyeguy 54
      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure. 
    • gunner55
      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.
    • Wanderer
      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      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.
    • ANYFISH2
      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
