      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 .

Thank You to guys on West Rush

I want to send out a thank you to 3 different guys I seen Patrolling around on 4 wheelers today on West Rush Lake... All 3 of them stopped and picked up trash that was not their own! The community hole in front of the access was full of people and looked pretty clean.. I suspect these guys might be on top of it on a regular basis! Its nice to see someone taking action for a change.

What a zoo that lake has become! I think there were 100 people fishing out in front of the access between morning and evening.. 4 wheelers buzzing everywhere endlessly.. some on wheelie's occasionaly, a Mazda size pickup taking a joy-ride on the lake driving like a teen-ager that had his 1st beer, snowmobiles hitting mach 2... ad a whole bunch of people out enjoying a very nice day on the lake catching a good number of mostly dinky panfish with a few nice ones thrown in!

I havent been to a carnival in a long time! It was still somehow enjoyable with consistant action sitting on the bucket smelling other people's mr heaters because there were so many operating, and the occasional fog of 2 stroke from the guys that take a whole tank of gas to drill 4 holes 40' away because their blades are so dull.

There was about 9"-10" of ice where I was sitting if I had to guess.. very good ice. I dont recommend anyone driving out there, but there are bites to be had fishing in, or around the village. If you drill holes away from the village, you will soon be part of the village as it extends towards you when more people arrive, or the ones that are there move towards you seeing fish landed.

Have fun ya'll.

The dull blade guy was my favorite. I thought he would never get thru the ice. We should have challenged him to a race with the hand auger. Funny stuff.

I could have drilled a hole faster with my cigarette lighter on the last one. There were a couple others with very dull blades throughout the course of the day.

I guess when people arent getting out, they arent staying on top of the upkeep on their equipment?

My ears are still ringing from the power augers and guys with *performance exhaust* on a couple 4 wheelers. My eyes have more glazing on them than a krispy creme doughnut from staring at the flasher all day to boot.

I hate fishing in the crowds but it can be very entertaining just watching that circus. You describe it well That Guy. Cool to hear that people are picking up the trash. Thanks guys!

Are you guys trying to tell me that you like solitude when you're out fishing. grin.gif You are never going to find that on West Rush. Good to meet and fish with you guys. That hand auger of yours would have blown away some of those power augers.

The garbage out there is terrible. Between Tuesday and Wednesday a lot of it disappeared, so someone is working at it. I usually go out there with a pop bottle and come back with a handfulls of garbage. I don't get why people can't bring their garbage back off the lake. Cigarette butts, peanut shells, and sunflower seeds drive me nuts too.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
