      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 .

Glenn, sounds pretty straight forward, letting the oven do most of the work and then finish up/get the taste in the smoker. What were you trying to say about the Weber? Thats all I have...

How do you like the campground on N. Long? Hows the fishing?

blackjack, the time i used the weber the fish seemed a little more dryed out than normal. id put foil down next time. my smoker has a water pan in it. also when using foil spray it with vegtable oil. i really like the campground. we are real good friends with the owners. fishin is ok if you know the lake, especially sunfish. eyes and nords are hard to get with all the feed. good crappies fishin at times. give us a holler out there some weekend. we are in what they call the north woods.

Go to a meat market and get whats called. Sweeter then Sweet. I have used this for years smoking fish,duck,phesents,turkeys,chickens. Everything. It works great. Its alot of money, but it worth it. Try it out and let me know what you think of it.

bassnspear, what exactly is sweeter than sweet? never heard of it. is it a smoking wood chip? my little smoker cant cook and smoke it all at one time. would like to try a bigger unit. i hate the thought of ruining any thing i try cooking.

sweeter then sweet is the type of brine that is used to brine the fish over a period of 7 days, before you smoke it. You can ither smoke it work wood chips, or with saw dust. But its a great brine that i have used for years.

mr d, yea frozen fish work very well. ill even give up another of my secrets. if you freeze your fish, and i assumeyou leave the skin on your nords,after you clean them put them in water and add about a half to a cup, just estimating, of vinegar to the fish and water. leave them sit over nite, rinse them off and walla no more slime.

      Thanks for the update cigarguy- were you lindy rigging?
    • CigarGuy
      Neighbor and I went out in Wakemup for a couple hours tonight and got a 18" and 19" and had a nice one come unbutton on the way in....Leaches and crawlers.  That's good for me!  20 - 34' off a break line.  Del, working on the last flight of the steps-was looking for you to stop by and help!
    • mtheis
      I used lead core on Friday and had a ball catching walleyes of all sizes.  I started in the morning and stayed out until I just got tired in the afternoon.  I probably pulled in as many as 20 or so.  My formula was:  90 feet of line, 19-24 ft of water, #5 rattling split deep shad rap.  Silver color.  I kept it right at 2mph.  I also did much better when I pumped the rod in a regular cadence.  Keeping it in the rod holder didn't produce near the fish. 
    • mtheis
      Ace, I hope you enjoy your retirement.  I hired you one time and my boy and I had a good time.  I appreciate the hard work you did on putting us on fish.  Good Luck and maybe "Little Ace" can continue the family business some day!   Michael Theis

      These are legal aliens.  Glad you enjoyed your lunch.

      Trolling or casting jigs and spinners(silver or gold are best for pike IMO) near the weeds, in bays, etc, cranks, and top water buzz baits around weedy areas are how I get most of my pike. Use a leader. Orange jig heads with a sparkly yellow twister tail and a jumbo leech gets me more pike than any other method. Your mileage may vary.

      I had lunch there a couple of days ago. Great service and good food! I did not see any illegal type aliens there at that time!  Cliff
