      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 .

Last week report...

Headed up to LOTW Mar 2 3 4, and was wondering what's been happening up there. Heard some reports of the week before last, but was wondering if anyone has been up there more recent. Has the snow played a role in the bite?

Still able to find fish around that 20' mark?

Are the pike starting to go again...not just in key locations?

Any imput would be great.

Thought about going out of Morris Point.

Thanx smirk.gif

Fished over Pine Island yesterday in 28-29'. In between plowing out 2 houses, getting stuck 6 times, moving 1 house, banking, & fixing a broken hyd. fitting on the plow I caught a 17 & 16" eye, lost another heavy one, 8 or 10 keeper sauger up to 15", & 2 nice 12" perch from 8-4:30. Twice that many dinks & some ciscos thrown in to irritate me.

Had a Marcum set up on either side of the house & looked like I was at a Kornakova/Sharapova match. Had something working on one or the other most of the time. Don't think I had 1 fish show up to active jigging but would still lift or pound bottom every few minutes.

Many fish just showed up and then would have to be teased up 2-6 feet, sometimes 3 or 4 times before biting. Lots of them just appeared as a disturbance on the bottom signal & had to be teased up. Had 2 large marks that followed but wouldn't close.

Had on a small red glow rattle jig and a small green glow rattle varmit & shiner head. The green may have had a slight edge during the day but everything after 3PM came on the red.

Thought things would slow down when the wind kicked up but didn't seem to matter.

Thanks for the report...as I thought though things have been slow eh. No matter, the rest of the crew backed out due to weather, probabally for the best.

God luck to all you hardcore locals this weekend, I'm envious!

Thanx Dutchman for info... maybe I'll be back up around the 16th when the snow has blown off and melted?? LOL!

Thanx again smirk.gif

RoyalDutchman: Sounds like an intersting day for you all the way around. Sounds like a fish fry in the making though. We're getting hit pretty good down here right now, they're talking 12-21" possible. We're not far away from that. Stay safe this weekend, and good luck. Bill

Hey Terry,

I think you were more help to him than I was! I believe he was able to drill the next day but definately needed some factory support later. Hard to keep everyone staight but I think he is an FM'er.

Max, How'd it go with the auger?
