      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 .

Seat O The Pants harness - do you have one?

Recommended Posts

BLACKJACK

Looking at the Cabelas catalog, thinking about getting the Seat o the Pants 'Supreme Harness' for my wife, does anyone have one of these? How do you like it? How hard is it to slip on? I have the original Seat o the pants, it is nice with that pouch to hold everything buts its kind of a pain in the arse to put on. This new one looks like more of a vest and might be easier to put on...

Any comments appreciated.

Don't have one but I did just buy a vest style harness and I love it compared to the basic 5 point harness I had before. Basically, I just step into the leg loops, snap one buckle around the chest ala life vest style, button the vest, and make sure the leg loops are tight. Nice not having everything a tangled mess and trying to figure it out at 6 am! I'd go with a vest style if she plans to go any decent amount with you.

BTW, BlackJack, are you getting out opening morning? I plan to to be in a tree a little ways northwest of New London come legal light. Whoo-hoo! grin.gif

Chucker, I'll be getting out several times over the weekend, just not sure when. My 83 year old dad wants to go fishing, hard to turn that down, the bow season goes on for 3 1/2 months, lots of time to hunt. If its nice, I'll probably go fishing, if its cloudy and rainy, I'll be bowhunting, especially if its and east wind. I have a couple new spots that require and east wind and I'd like to try them.

BTW, I hunt 25 miles NW of Willmar, 10 miles south of Brooten.

BUMP - Someone has to have one of these harnesses or is Summit going out of business? grin.gif

BlackJack, gotcha. I hunt mainly on different places on the outskirts of and surrounding Sibley Park, Games and Norway Lake areas. I would go fishing with my dad too as there will be plenty of time to hunt these next three months!

I see that Sibley is doing a muzzleloader hunt again this year - does only. Have you ever done this? I may have to put in for a permit some year, which means I'd have to get a muzzleloader!

      Thanks to all those who came out yesterday and it was great to see you all. I had fun catching fish and chatting. I will put another one together later in the year.

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.
