      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 .

Would you fish every day if you could?

Would you fish every day if you could?

I wouldn't. I think it would become such drudgery that I'd end up hating it after about a month.

Well, I wouldn't just do the same type of fishing day after day, that would eventually get boring. But there are SO many kinds of fishing and places to go...if I could afford it, I have no doubt I could fish everyday!

I'd flip my job around! Fish Monday - Friday and then take the weekends off to do whatever.

Like was said, if I could afford it (and not have to work), I'd fish 5 days out of the week, easy! Not quite all year long though. Gotta hunt, see other family, take other vacations too. smirk.gif

I could easily fish every day at least for some portion of the day. I would not be up for a full 8 hrs every day though.

I would have to figure out what to do on vacations then though..... grin.gif

Could I fish every day just as a hobby...

Nah probably not... Not until like my retirement years when I plan to retire on a lake with a nice cabin etc... And then it's one of those, go out fishing after breakfast, for an hour as part of a daily routine.

I could make my career fishing related though...

Something like say own a small Restaurant/Fishing resort somewhere... My Fiance/wife (Who used to be a gourmet chef) could run the Cafe, and I'd guide...

It would have to be the right lake etc... And would need to be a lake region, like a chain with some variety.

Then as a side way to make money I'd write about fishing, and either become a Correspondent for one of the mags, or just start my own website with a subscription news letter...

(I keep massive amounts of research & Obseravtion in a journal already, which after spending 250-400 hours a year on the water, it's got to have some info worth money!)

I there was a big enough bank account, I could fish atleast a small portion of every day. If I had all fuel, lodging, bait, tackle and all bills at home I would be on the water forever.

I'd like to say I would, but I'm with Questor on this one, I think after a period of time it would start to lose its shine. I would like to have the ability to fish when I think the conditions are perfect, just hook up and go. Nothing iritates me more than being able to go on saturday but the perfect day was thursday, especially if a retired friend went on thursday and told me how great it was. Then I go on Saturday and have just a so-so trip. Drives me crazy!!!

I think if you fished every day the " Specialness " would wear off after while . So I wouldn't fish every day but wouldn't it be great to be able go fishing when ever I " wanted " .

My first year of teaching in NE Iowa, I fished every single day in june and july, I got bored really quick (after twon months that is). I had no boat so I was wading in trout streams and walking the bank of the Upper Iowa and the mississippi shore fishing. Needless to say I spent a lot on bait and beer, ate so much fish in those two months that I can't really stand to eat trout and salmon too for that matter, more than once or twice a year. We got pretty creative in how we cooked our fish as well, Grilled catfish in the rain, now that was a fun one......I am sure I missed a couple days that summer due to weather, but I remember fishing basically every single day.

would I do it again if I could, YES. I own a boat now, that opens things up a lot more

If I could move to the wilderness permanently, ala "Alone in the Wilderness", yes, I would love to (on both accounts)! But if I'm still here in civilization, there's too many other people, places and things I enjoy, too.

Point being, if my life was outdoors, and my job was simply just to live and ponder the existence of me and the world around me, I would enjoy fishing every single day of the rest of my life.

I think the best measure of whether you are fishing enough or too much for your soul is how you feel about "one more cast" on a given outing. If you are out fishing, and going through the mental routine of packing up to go home imparts anxiety and sadness, schedule more fishing!!! grin.gif If it makes you think "today was great, I can't wait to get out again" I'd say you are in the happy place! grin.gif If you think "jeezus, can we just get the h3ll out of here already", you probably need to change fishing partners. grin.gif

I am too young and have way too many different hobbies to limit myself to fishing everyday. Isn't that what retirement is for? At least that Is what my interpretation of it is. For them every day of the week is Saturday. LOL

(only 30 years to go... frown.gif)

Not everyday, but two out of three days I could fish! I spend about one month to six weeks a year fishing every day, trying new lakes, new spots, looking and finding. Could I fish one place every day? No way. At the rate I am going I will be able to retire at 111 years old grin.gif so I'm getting in what I can now! I fish alone a lot of days and there are some that it feels like I skipped school and no one else did! Fall has me hunting fishing hunting fishing... I get the " I'm really getting tired of this"come about Dec.

Every day might be a bit tough... As a teacher, I have my summers off, and I do a pretty good job to fish 5-6 days a week. I usually stay off the water on Saturday unless I have a tournament. I hate the huge crowds and get a tad impatient at boat landings at times.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.
    • mrpike1973
      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      A variety.   Abu 5500c3, abu 5600 mag, revo sx, several others.

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff
    • TomWehler
      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
