      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 .

That could be arranged, like I told you that day you saw me Pike fishing in Warroad I can hook you up with some no prob. It's not so much the how as the where up in these parts when it comes to the chubs. definetly wanna use a double funnel trap as they're pretty good at getting out when they see you coming. Kinda hard to build a real efficient double gate trap on the small size trap a guy is limited to without a commercial permit but a guy can build one that'll work pretty good.

Those Big wild Shiners I had that day are thick right now and usually the Chubs show up a week or three behind them, then they start their nest building and are quite catchable in the runs they nest in.

WT one of these days I'll show you where my property is south of town and then you can just get some out of my keep pens in the creek behind the shop. Far less time consuming! I'll let you know when I have a few gallons out there.

Hopefully the creeks did'nt swell too much after the past few rains as I'm planning on getting out today and/or tomorrow to trap some bait for the weekend.

Fisky,

That sounds great! I appreciate it. Good bait is hard to come by up here a lot of the time. Drop me a line when you have some red tails around... I'll make it up to you somehow... I often have a open seat in the Ranger!

Fisky, I'm just south of Wannaska on the river and would be interested in seeing your setup for trapping the chubs as well as any tips on areas to look for.

Widetrack, I'll be up at the angle quite a bit this summer.... if you're looking for someone to go musky hunting some time let me know.

Ripper,

you will have to get authorization from Fisky to tag along.

Rbach:

Sounds good, I'm at the Angle as often as possible, and fish solo quite often. Nobody else can put up with me... crazy.gif

Have we met?

I was only joking. I did manage to pick quite a few crawlers on Monday night though. Leeches should be coming this week from Fargo.

Fisky, do you trap those too?

Widetrack, I don't think we've met.... I've seen a lot of your posts and noticed that you often fish for muskies at the angle. I get out fishing for them when friends come to visit, but everyone else wants to fish walleyes. It's nice a nice change of pace. Shoot me an email if you ever need company... rbach33@wiktel.com

      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!
