      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 heard a rumor that somebody flashed a piece at the French over a turf dispute. Anybody hear about that??? Apparently nobody called it in...

Didn't hear about that, although its not too surprising I guess (frightening though). Sounds like that scene in the big lebowski grin.gif Some of those fellas firmly believe that the loopers were put there for their enjoyment alone. It's definitely frustrating to have to fight a crowd to catch fish, but there are other options than pulling a gun. If s#!t like this continues, there could be a good market for fly vests or waders lined with kevlar blush.gif I was planning on doing a little fishing this weekend, hope I don't get shot....

A buddy of mine was driving by the Lester yesterday, and he said that a semi had lost control and was hanging over the lakeside edge of the bridge. From what he told me, it sounded like some of the concrete from the bridge had been knocked into the water, and there was diesel fuel leaking as well. That river's been a zoo lately, so its more than likely that there were several fishermen down below that filled there waders with a little more than water if you know what i mean. Scary stuff...

Anyone confirm either of these screwy incidents?

Definite on the semi in the river, was on the news last night. Guy was pronounced dead at the hospital, sounds like he had a heart attack or similar as they said he most likely died before the accident occured. I think they said about 50 gallons of diesel in the river.

Didn't hear about the gun. I try to stay away from the French (too many crazies-no offense fellas).

As for the Lester, consider it verified. I was down there yesterday after work to check it out. What a mess. Lots of granite slabs in the river mouth, but she is still flowing and fish are getting through just fine. Of course I don't know from catching any because that never happens.

I once shot a man in dispute over a highly guarded pout hole, so this doesn't surprise me at all.

MrS - An eel pout sling shot isn't exactly the piece I was talking about. smirk.gif

I drove up to the Lester just now to check things out. Looks like a pretty scary deal. I'd have hated to be underneath the bridge when she came down. I hooked a wild fish last Sunday right where the bridge came down. It did make the mouth more interesting though.

      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).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      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.

      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.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

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