      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 .

What's behind your signature? My signature is from a sign hanging in my den given to me my a friend. He remembered the first time we floated the Cloquet river and we said we would be done by 5 in the afternoon and it was dark by the time we finally got off the water, our girlfriends were not to happy waiting hours for us at the landing.

Being a big online computer gamer.. I was very familiar with a quote.. and I changed the original quote from "base" to "bass"... Here's the skinny on the quote (from Wikipedia):

"All your base are belong to us" (often referred to as "All Your Base" or abbreviated AYBABTU, AYBAB2U, or simply AYB) is an Engrish phrase that sparked an Internet phenomenon in 2001 and 2002. The text is taken from the opening cut scene of the English version of the 1989 Japanese video game Zero Wing by Toaplan. While the translation was generally poor, this phrase stood out as particularly humorous. From mid-to-late 2000 many images were digitally altered so that the phrase was added in, either obviously or discreetly, led by the Something Awful Forums[1]. Some of these images were compiled with those created and posted to a forum thread on TribalWar.com by their members; one of whom, known only as "Bad_CRC", created the AYBABTU Flash animation that was widely downloaded and later featured on various online and televised news outlets.

A good snowmobiling friend of mine use to say

"It snows everyday in heaven" - Doug Dinger #73

I believe its written that way on his headstone. He passed away in a snowmobiling accident 3 years back.

A phrase an old coworker used to use, along the lines of "you know what I'm saying?". Still gets a pause in a conversation from someone who has never heard it before. Previous origins unknown, but I'd love to hear any opinions.

And, of course, the old Garage Logic "Good Luck!".

catching vs. fishing.

well my dad always had said that "you go out to fish, not to catch." there are to many that go out to catch, not to fish. fishing brings us closer to our being. he also said that he has been told that for every hour you spend fishing. adds an hour to the end of your life. so if you go out fishing you will never come home dissapointed. and if you just go out to catch, you may often come home dissapointed. ... paul

The first time I heard the quote on my signature was from an 80+ yr old guy that I used to fish with years ago.

I am very insecure about my weight when I put waders on and I hate it when other hunters stare and whisper things behind my back.

I just want to look my best out in the slough.

Well, it's a line in a movie that has always cracked me up. More importantly, it also the name of my ice shack on Mille Lacs.

A saying I find myself telling buddies who just casually fish, then sit, then maybe fish, then talk my ear off. So "Shut up and fish!"

My younger brother is notorious for hooking into a good fish and yelling "Got one!" only to discover a few seconds later the fish has broken his line or somehow managed to get off, which I then hear him say in a very frusterated tone...."Had one." It cracks me up cause it happens at least once everytime we're on the water together.

Everytime I USE to say things, I would say "And there you go" as I was trying to prove my correct point. I got some ribbing about this phrase so I hardly use it anymore, but it comes out time to time. When I do use it, I do hear about it grin.gif

I had to explain mine a little as a lot of people don't understand it. It's "shorthand".

See the itty bitty ducks?

Them are no ducks.

Oh yes they are, see the itty bitty wings?

While I'll be, them are ducks!

My 5th grade teacher wrote it on the board and no one got it til he explained it. I always remembered it after that. He was a Navy man and very strict. I got in a lot of trouble in his class but looking back, he was the best teacher I had. He also gave us a "test" that tested how well we read directions. The first line was "Fill in your name and do not write anything below." Or something like that. Needless to say, I filled in the entire page. It was like a survey or something from what I remember. I wish I could find it online, but I've tried to no avail.

Remember when the depth finder was called Grandpa?

saw this on a sign at the VRC near Vermillion, and it just kinda stuck in my mind. I was very close with my grandfather and was always amazed at how he was able to do just about everything so it fit him.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )

      I hope you enjoy your retirement!
    • seifjr
      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?
