      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 brand, color boat & motor do you have?

Who knows...maybe we see each other all the time on the lakes and don't know it.

What brand, color boat & motor do you have so we know who you are?

Mine is a white 1990 17' YarCraft with a 80 HP 4 stroke Yamaha & (2) Minnkotas. Tow it with a blue '02 Ram 2500 diesel shortbox. I may also use a stealth 1200 duck boat or red two-up kayak.

Come ice, a yellow Bombardier Outlander or a maroon Suzuki Vitara SUV.

My home lake is Big C. (unless it doesn't start acting better) grin.gif

if you see a sweet 19' Triton walleye edition with a 115 tiller and two 80ft-lb trolling motors being towed by a maroon GMC pickup with a topper, look in the passenger seat, it might be me tongue.gif

that's Fisherdog's boat.

The only boat I have is a 12 foot Starcraft that I use for duck hunting...

Hiya -

I run an tan-ish 18' Tracker Tundra with a full windshield and a 135 OptiMax. Not too many of them around so I kind of stick out. Pull it with a very dusty black Tahoe...

Mark - man, a '55 Seahorse... I'm jealous as hell. Just readin that brought back memories. I grew up driving around Crystal with a '55 5.5 hp Seahorse. Loved that thing. Then we got a 15 horse Evinrude, and man oh man did I think I was hot stuff then smile.gif If you EVER decide to sell that motor, please let me know. Seriously... I'd love to have one again, just to have it.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Swing by and say hi anytime! Always good to visit with fellow FMers on the water.

New boat eh Scooter, how's it going, haven't spoken with you for a while. We should get together.

My new/used ride: 19' Dark Blue with Maroon accent Triton Walleye Edition with a 115 yami 4 stroke tiller. I've never even seen a Triton around here, let alone a tiller, so if you see one, it's me. I must add that I love it. 25mph winds, and I can backtroll while staying right on top of fish. The wind just can't blow it around laugh.gif.

Fisherdog,

Congrats on the new rig yourself. You been able to dunk it in the water much? Despite the new rig, I haven't been able to get out much. My current life situation (job, wife, kid, house, etc.) has me fishing on the Red and on a few bigger trips each year- that's about it. I try sneak out occasionally, but it doesn't come together for me very often right now.

We have a Crestliner with the Green interior and wish we didn't have the carpet because sand sticks out bad in it.

Dad, my brother and I bought a 15' Lund Mr. Pike in 1979. I've taken out the steering console and changed the floor two times. Newer 25hp Johnson with a bow mounted transom trolling motor that's being held together with electrical tape. Pulled by a Green Ford Ranger extended cab. I'm a really big guy so it probably looks like the boat is going up hill all the time.

      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!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
