      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 .

To those that read this, no offense and I hope you follow the advice. Otherwise, save your typing and insults.

First off - nobody knows everything, myself included. But some people know more and I think that when people help others to become wiser (probably the main purpose of this OUTDOOR FISHING SITE) - it is a good thing.

My issue is that there seems to be a lot of people running around that think they know everything, yet they don't know how much they don't know. Quick to insult people they don't know. Easy to make judgements and comments about things that don't know jack about. Arguing about stuff all the time as if they had THE answer and nobody else knows anything.

I used to be like that. But I grew up. In a nutshell, I used to think I was the best at things... only to get waxed good. That taught me a lot, including something called humility. Being humbled by people that are better than you is tough to deal with, but it made me grow up and I have found my own success because of that.

Now I respect people that have learned to respect others for the talents they have. Instead of cutting somebody down, they applaud the achievements of others. They can also spot pretenders from a mile away.

So why post this? I just wish a lot of the people on this site would stop, sit back, and look how foolish we have taken things(MYSELF included)

Maybe it would help them grow up and stop acting like they are the ones that know it all. It would give them a sorely needed dose of humility.

CommanceJim you mentioned your son in one your posts. great post!!! and it sounds like you guys had a blast together regardless of the sox winning or losing. Your post made me smile, it really did.

But it also made me think about if I were to print some of these negative posts out, and show my son what would he say? Would I be proud of my actions?

Rundrave, I can see a little bit where you are going with this. Sometimes we act childish and such when our favorite teams lose. But I also think you have lost site of what a baseball forum is about.

To me it is about acknowledging good play of athletes and yes, bad play. They (me personally) are only opinions. It is about "playing" manager or coach. Talking about officals calls, ribbing Packer or Sox fans, just talking on a computer about your favorite sport.

Does this mean we know better or can coach or play better than the people we are talking about? I would say 95% of us would say no. A negative post can't be associated with knowing it all all the time.

My whole life is revolved around the game of baseball. The last 2 months probably the most exciting. Because I give an OPINION, does that make me childish?

Thanks Runny....

Like windy said in another post......we're like Eddie Haskle. It's fun to see you guys get so worked up. I don't attack anyone personally.......at least I don't remember or think I have. And if I have, that is never my intention.

I usually laugh my Arse off when I'm on this board. It keeps us young.

Well put CJim.

Some guys have shorter memories than others, but I have a feeling it is the guys that are still "young" that don't get it like most of us do.

The ol' Twainer comes in again:

"The trouble with youth is it is wasted on the young"!

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!

      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish.

      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
