      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 like the ESPN Great Outdoor Games. Besides, the Olympics have become to "Politcally Correct". PETA would have an aneurism.

It might be hard when the olympics are held in some place like China. Would we send our best bass fisherman or walleye fisherman or what? Who the heck knows what kind of fish they have over there?

Ozzie, you are correct. The Ice fishing Championship is in China this year. The reason I asked the question was that I heard that the Bass Classic was going to drug test this year. They said it was because they are trying to get fishing in the games. I'm against it. I don't see any reason to have them in the Olympics.

Fishing has nothing to do with the Olympics. Fishing has its Olympics in all the big time tourneys.

I disagree. Fishing's Olympics are conducted, moderated, and scored by regular guys who go out and catch fish every weekend, and guides putting clients on fish on a daily basis.

Not taking anything away from tournament fisherfolks, but that style of fishing is pretty far removed from the world inhabited by most of humanity.

How you judge a good day on the water?

I won't watch it, instead I'll go fishing and maybe watch a sunrise or sun set and catch supper. I guess I could buy a patch for my hat too just to have something to show for my efforts.

I am going to take a guess here that Olympic fishing will not be the kind of fishing that your are thinking of but more like the european match fishing where teams compete using 30'poles and 1# line catching fish that we would not even use as bait. In the true Olympic 90% of the sports there now should not be. As the original was based on an individual in running and strength contests. I don't remember the Greeks playing much softball or speed skating. If fishing is entered I can see berry and nut gathering not to far behind. With that said I don't want to start a debate about the Olympic set up just making a point for say the x games. Sometimes old should be kept old and new should find it's own niche.

Jackpine so are the athletes in the olympics. No way I can play basketball with Mike Jordan or Shack! The olympics are the best athletes day in and day out on any playing field and I believe the upper level tourney guys are the best fisherman day in and day out on any body of water.

The one thing that I found wierd was drug testing Bass fishing pros. I don't see the point of it. You can be big as an ox and still catch nothing.

I think they are worried about drugs like, speed, booze, painkillers etc. I doubt they are worried about Gary Roach taking steroids. wink.giftongue.gif

      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!

      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."
