      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 am going absolutely insane here in my cube in Dtwn Minneapolis. I have been working on my lists all day, haven't shaved in two weeks, and have been constantly reading these forums just to keep from totally losing it.

I'm not leaving until tomorrow after work, so there's probably some more I could add to my list. Ooooooh, a little sack of flour to check the wind direction in the stand...check! grin.gif

I'm leaving in 3 hours 55 minutes and 13 seconds, roughly!!! I have Purchase Orders to get out today, some production reports to finish up, but somehow can't seem to keep my mind on the task at hand. Did any of you watch South Park on Comedy Central last night? Cartman couldn't wait until the new Nintendo came out so he froze himself in the snow in the mountains and had his buddy "butters" wake him up in three weeks because the wait was actually killing him. I'm thinking about doing the same. I may have to go and jump in Lake Vermilion and try to freeze myself for these next four hours. Is it time yet.....? How about now....? And now....? Nope still four hours, dang it!

Yes, I'm dying here and I should be paying the company instead of them paying me for today! Just got some hand-drawn maps and ballistics recommendations/yardages ready for my two kids that are coming along. The hard part is forgetting their ballistics to remember my own!!

Unforunately, realized that I have both of their rifles zero'd in wrong and will now need a stop at the range to make sure they are correct. That isn't a bad thing but isn't the day I care to be at the range if I can help it.

Oh well, if I focus on worrying about how they are sighted-in I'll probably be able to quit running thru the packing and lists so much.

I'd rather only have to wait a day and a half than the 2 weeks I have to wait.

Two more hours for me Hee Haa. Might even get to bow hunt an hour or so tonight. We have some fresh snow on the ground (Not much but just enough) Need the winds to mellow out!!! Shack is being heated and the truck is packed. The longest week will produce the quickest weekend. No doubt!!! Good luck to all and be safe.

My brother just called me to tell me he made it in to the shack. Didn't even have to cut any trees down over the trail. He's got a barley pop open and awaiting my arrival. He just had to rub it in mad.gif . I've got two hours to go. Well, actually 2 1/2, but I'm sneaking out of here at 4:30.

It's easier to beg for forgiveness, than to ask for permission!!!

I'm in a similar but different situation. I'm stuck at class yet until around 4, thank God for laptops and wireless internet though. I knew I spent the extra dough for the longer lasting battery for a reason smile.gif I've been zoned out of the professors' lectures today and probably checked the weather and this site about 1000 times already today. I'm leaving tomorrow after a morning presentation and a quick stop at Gander Mtn. I'd also like to shoot about 5 rounds just to ease any doubts I may have. This has probably been one of the longer weeks of the year, though ever since I started bow hunting it's not AS bad as it used to be. Just gotta wash the clothes tonight and make sure everything is packed, check the list about 10 times, don't wanna get out there and realize I forgot the shells. Good luck to everyone.

Ok, here I go. I'm leaving right now. If nobody ever hears from me again it means the boss caught me and put me solitary confinement. Wish me luck!!!

I don't know about you guys but I have been sitting up my stand for about a week and a half now, my wife says I have shot a deer every night in my sleep for a week. Good thing I don't let the anticipation get to me.

Don't even get me started on all the deer I've shot while losing sleep this week. I've shot some bucks that would have made Boone and Crockett use their gloves as TP! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I know the feeling about the shortage of sleep but that won,t get cured till saturday night. I mostly try to keep busy with little projects. Right now I have about 5 pounds of venison in the smoker making pepper blend jerky and I still will sharpen a couple of knives and pack a little more stuff. Good luck to all and I hope the time passes quickly for you all.

      It's been a 1/32 oz. unpainted jig head & a small split shot along with a crappie minnow for me most of the time. Still barely see the rod tip load or wiggle a little on the bite. Even tougher with the wind lately & 20' or more down.

      Any channel on any lake is dangerous.

      We are done as of Saturday as well. Was fishing in 35 feet in Smarts Friday and had a monster, monster fish on. Thought I was snagged for a few minutes, but then felt the wiggling. Fought if for probably five - ten minutes (drag flying out) and then up came an eight inch walleye. Never saw the monster, but guessing it was massive fish, perhaps a muskie? Anyone else ever have this happen?

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff
