      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 .

So, my boy (6) and I are at Montissippi at oh-dark-hundred for a morning of shore-fishing when Hawgtide shows up to launch for a morning of fishing and asks my son and I to go with him!!

Thanks again, man!

He took us upriver and we had a GREAT TIME! I would have never gone that far upriver with the water dropping in my prop rig, but his jet went fearlessly across the riffles without a care in the world.

Talk about an awesome angler! Hawgtide boated at least a half-dozen big bronzebacks while piloting the drift and being a courteous and hospitable host! My son hasn't had his ego stroked like that since we took his training wheels off! He deserved it, though! The boy caught a nice 16 1/2" smally on a buzzbait. His dad, however, spent more time tying and retying than fishing. I did get a nice cat while jigging a hole. That was my first time fishing that stretch from a boat and I was overwhelmed with my options! Next time I have the opportunity, however, I'll keep it simple.

It was a very educational morning for me.

Greg, can you e-mail and/or post those pix to me?

robertcarbonell@yahoo.com

Thanks again, Greg!

I also got the chance to go out with the Legend HT! It really humbles ya when the man that has to worry about boat control and everything else that goes along with it smokes you 2-1 and the amazing thing about this was that our average size was, to say the least, HUGE!

The really great thing about fishing with HT, besides the unbelievable hospitality, is that its like Cabelas in that boat, and those HAWGOMOTO Baits are a must have!..... however I believe they wont be available till after the Sartell Tourney blush.gifblush.gif Something about not being fully tested yet! grin.gif

Greg, the e-mail addy is in my first post. Thanx! I like the Hawgomoto baits, and that color blend Greg formulated for his jigs and skirts. Move over 'firetiger' and make room for 'Allybam-o-rama'!

20 lbs, KT? Yeah, he hit 20lbs and all the while wondered why he couldn't find fish. shocked.gif

Aquaman,

I kow what you mean about the "Man I wish we could find some bigger fish" thing! We were catching mainly 17-19.999:" fish and HT keeps complaining that he needs a kicker! our best 5 would have easily went 18-20, but we never did get the 5 pound kicker! Just those little 3.5-4 pound dinks blush.gifblush.gifgrin.gif

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
