      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 .

Moores Bait & Tackle Burglarized

Recommended Posts

The post tite said it all. Someone broke in last night about 3:30 a.m.

Whomever did this was very selective about what they wanted. The reel cabinet was cleaned out.. lots of high dollar reels including shimano tekota 500 & 600's, garcia 7000's, 6500 & 6501's, Okuma epixor reels from 30-65 series, shimano symetra and sedonas of various sizes.. front and rear drag.

Tackle taken the person(s) was very specific. This was a walleye, bass, and pike/musky fisherman. They seemed to be stealing to fill the tackle box with their prefered items.. gum drop floater bulk packs, gamakatsu hooks in various sizes, balsa slip floats, rapalas, weights in 3/8 and less size, northland jighead packs in various sizes and colors.. they seem to like stuff around 1/4 oz best, power baits(mostly worms), ring worms in colors that had purple in them, mepps in choice colors in sizes mostly from #3-#5... I think we get the idea. They were very specific on what they took.

If anything is being sold I would suspect the larger reels. This person didnt clean out the inventory on the stuff, but they took handfulls of everything they wanted.

It wouldnt surprise me if they filled a bucket full of minnows on the way out the door on their shopping spree.

Somebody knows something. This person who did this is an avid fisherman, and probably spends a lot of time on the water. If anybody knows anything, please contact the police, or Moores bait.

If this happens again, I suspect we might not have a local baitshop in Minneapolis. Bob Moore is a heck of a good guy that does everything within his power to help fishermen out, and has very fair prices. He s not getting rich owning a bait shop, trust me. Bob is the type of person that will give you the shirt off his back.

Please keep your eyes open for anything. I'll personally throw in a few days of guided fishing to anyone turning in the person guilty of this burglary.

This is something that I hate to hear about, an honest person trying to make a living and helping other people out and some low life takes from him. I sincerely hope that someone turns these people/person in to the authorities. Like you said I am sure someone must know who and how they did such a thing. Hopefully insurance will cover some of his loss. It seems nothing is safe anymore, if the thiefs want something bad enough they will find a way to get it.

I've just been really upset ever since I heard this news.

Bob is a great guy! I've fished with him on many occassions and he has absolutely gone out of his way to provide us metro fisherman with great gear, great advice, and great bait. He has listened to what us fisherman (and catfisherman) want and has gone above and beyond what most bait shops will do to accomodate our requests. Bob has one of the best catfish rod & reel selections in the state and its because he is willing to listen and help. For someone to burglarize his business is a slap in the face to Bob and his community of customers! Lets just say I'm a little PO'd about this.

Lets keep our eyes & ears open for any info related to this!

Guy I agree you with on bob's a great guy. Starting a bait shop is hard enough to get off the ground. Then to have someone bust into his shop really sucks!!! I'll so give a guide trip to who helps in the bust of these rotten***** .

Bob hang in there, we're behind you.

Anyone interested in doing a drive to raise money to be offered through crime stoppers to find the perps? $$ can get the mouths to open (I wish it worked that way with fish grin.gif).

Hey guys, which bait shop is this? I might have to swing in and give the guy some business. I'm always on the lookout for a decent bait shop owner, too many schmucks out there. Sounds like he could use a little extra business, too.

Everyone should watch Ebay as these items could be listed by one guy and all in a row.

I just saw this thread for the first time today. That is a real shame. I love Moore's Bait & Tackle. I buy all my bait and tackle from there ever since it opened. Hopefully, as someone else posted, insurance will help cover the loss. And I'll keep my eyes open for tackle being sold.

      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
