      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 think where your post going did not follow forum rules. It would have started blasting people for the type of equipment they have.

I have a 680t Ranger w/60 Suzuki, The boat & motor has held up to the way I run equipment. HARD!!! Boat works good for muskie fishing, if only could duck hunt from it stable as a rock. Zuki's easy on gas and has held up running at, will, tached out.

I would have to say I'd like to see a Ranger dealer in this area. And U cant go wrong with either a Merc or Evinrude.

how do we define area 10, 20, 30 miles from Willmar, Spicer, or Paynesvilles? How far would a person be willing for a boat/motor? When I got my motor, I drove 60 miles for a dealer, Frankies marine. They only deal with fishing boat, no personal water craft, or ski boats. The suzuki dealer close to my home would only sell boat packages, not motors allow.

Jiggin and others I posted this on several sites asking for Boat,Motor and accesory information for Fishing Minnesota People.I also asked that we keep DEALER Loyalties or complaints out of it.I think that if a person wants to advertise for their dealer they can do that every time they take the boat out by displaying that buisneses good traits in that space.What I am asking is simply what BRANDS of boats motors trailers etc.have you had problems with ,and which BRANDS would you like to see in this area.That means if you live here and travel severalother areas to fish besides here,or if you come here to your cabin from somewhere else,or just visit here to fish or camp etc. which would be your preference???? Not looking for dealer loyalty or bashing .OOOOPPPSSSJiggin please dont Narrate my posts into your words anymore as I would rather have them deleted and start over than be censored.

prime, just didn't what you poll to become a bashing of people. No matter who are maybe. Poll is a good idea as to what guys like and enjoy about the boats and motors they or their friends use.

      1st time ever I've seen zebra mussels in ottertail on west side   this SUCKS!!!!   had a red solo cup in the water... apparently they love RED.     at least 5 of them    it sucks

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
