      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 .

I realize this may not be the right forum to post this, and if it isn't feel free to move this post, or notify me, but there's not really a right forum either, as far as I can tell.

Anyways, the wife and I got a notice to go to the larger time share place up by Brainerd and we'll get a free TV, along with a $25 gas card.

Now neither of I are interested, however, even if the TV is junky, I've been wanting one for my shop, which the wife says "no way" too. I see this as a free way to get a TV, if I set for 90 minutes to listen to a speech presentation.

I can make it there and back on a tank of gas, which is about $40, so that's not even an issue with the $25 gas card.

Anyone here ever done this?? Is it worth it?? Or do you feel real beat up by the time you're done if you don't buy into the plan??

My wife ane I sat in on one at vegas a few years ago. We got free tickets to a show and dinner, but that was two hours of my life I will never get back. So whats your time worth?

My mother-in-law made the rounds one summer. The haul: steak knives, portable gas grill, screen tent, etc.

We did a Brainerd-area tour, too. Got $75 gift certificate to Dayton's. We get calls about every six months from one on Mille Lacs. We also got hooked into a presentation in Las Vegas but managed a "bathroom" break before it got too far.

The sales guys get real disappointed when you don't pull the trigger on the deal, especially after they've invested 90 minutes in the presentation. You may have to remind them that there's a premium at the end of the rainbow.

If a deal sounds too good to be true it probably is. Yes, you'll get the trinkets at the end of the speil, but make no mistake, it's a snow job you are in for. I pitch the offers in the wastebasket. Good luck whatever you decide to do.

I did the one in up there a few years back for a $100 Gander card. Was almost dangerous. I never had any intentions of buying but the girlfriends mind changed during the presentation resulting in a real fun ride home.

Don't do it! And if you do, don't take your spouse! You do not need to fight off the sales people and your spouse!

Friends stuck me in one of these things before, but it was much worse. Free movie tickets. Only 45 min or so. They were giving away a TV, yeaaaa, black and white, and free groceries, one bag of junk.

They had us watch commercials. There were 70 people there to start, within 5 min it was 60, by 15 it was 30, by 20 I said I am leaving and walking home if I have to. There were maybe 10 people there when we left.

Spend your time on a nice lunch with the spouse. It will be better for your soul, relationship, save you wear and tear on the vehicle, and you won't want to beat your self for going when you get done.

You think high pressure sales is bad, this is way beyond it. Further, if you are ever going to do this, you want to get in when it is new and get thier finale price and then cut it in 1/2 or walk.

Peace and Blessings

Did I say don't do it?

      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!
