      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 .

Anyone fishing Beebe for opener? If so, what tactics and depths work well? Does Buffalo get crazy/crowded on opener?

Stay away from Buffalo on opener! I usually try to stay away from there for at least a few weeks within opener! I tried that last year & it was nuts! Almost as bad as ice fishing there. Beebe doesn't have too big of a parking lot, but I think that there is a guy down the road that will let you park in his lot, for a small fee that is.

Hoggs...thanks for the heads-up! I kinda figured Buffalo would be like that. Anyone fishing Beebe for opener? I am planning to head up toward the St. Cloud area early opening morning, but if the weather doesn't cooperate, I would like to hit something a little closer to home.

The bite is never good during opener, because of all the commotion (i.e; boats powering up away from landings, boats piling up on supposed "hot spots" and then speeding away, lots of inexperienced and "twice-a-year" boaters, etc.)...

I just skip opening weekend. The fish will still be there the following week...besides, there's plenty of yard work to be done until the "wanna-be's" are off the lakes...

Sounds like a little bitterness towards the opener crowd eh'?

No doubt, it can be a pain for traffic purposes.

I don't tend to skip opener, yet insist on siezing it as an opportunity to seek out low traffic lakes and find new spots.

So far, its opened my eyes to alot of little gems, that for some reason, nobody knows about.

Thank you opener madness, for I have a few more lakes in my pocket to go catch some slabs when I just want to be "alone".

Backherup Hit the nail on the head big time. Opener and for about 2 weeks you get the first time boat owners out there.

They buy a 21' boat pull it with a newe caddie suv. Just so they can drive thier new boat into yours. And never say sorry or anything. Seen this happen every year. Sometimes 4 or more times in 1 day. They don't have a Clue as to what to do.

1.They more practice it less busy ramps.

2.They could hire someone to show them what to do before, during and after luanching the boat.

3. Practice back the boat at a school parking lot.

Well geez, Duane...at least I have a boat!grin.gif

Maybe working 60-70 hours a week has a little to do with the fact I can no longer fish as much as I once did...family comes first...

I was on Beebe on Saturday morning. That only lasted about 2 hours. I got 1 small sunnie on the line & that was it. I mainly wanted to get out & get the boat running for the first time this year. Then it started snowing. I then called it a day. Water temp was only 48-49 degrees.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.

      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!
