      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 .

CROCS!

Recommended Posts

No doubt they are the ugliest shoe ever to hit the market! However, I just bought a pair...and can honestly say they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned!

They seem like the perfect fishing shoe to me. Easy on, easy off and they won't get "musty" like my old leather sandles after jumping in the water. At first, I wondered about this idea, but then I noticed In-Fisherman Editor Doug Stange wearing them while on the water. So, if he can pull it off, so can I.

Anyone else a Croc fan? (Don't be afraid!!! Stand up and admit it!!)

I've never heard of Crocs until I read your post. I went to crocs.com and they have several different types. My old leather sandals have run their course and I was going to buy a new pair this year, so I'm interested in hearing the opinion of what everyone thinks of their crocs and what type of croc they have.

Humm. It's going on the list. I wear a lot of sandles, but sometimes they slip on and off too easily. Crocks it is...

I always hated to wear my leather sandles in the lake. They'd always come out soggy, water logged, and slipped off to easily. However, last year I finally learned my lesson. Due to very low water levels on the lake I was fishing, my truck got stuck in the sand while I was trying to pull my boat out. So (without thinking confused.gif)I jumped into the water (barefoot) to push my boat off the trailer. Well, next thing I knew my foot was gashed wide open and I was bleeding like a stuck hog. So, there I was, standing on the dock bleeding with my truck, boat, and trailer stuck in the sand... Fortunately, there was a few other people there willing to help me out.

I'll only make that stupid mistake once.

I have yet to purchase a pair but I will soon......My brother in law and his friends in the neiborhood all wear them and they all just love'em and talk them up!! The reason why I want them is for the fact of getting wet and they are very comfortable!!

If anyone is looking for a more "manly" tongue.gif sandal, look at Keen's Newport model. These shoes really excel when wading in rocky rivers, since they have a protected toe. granted, the Crocs are about a third of the price.

My wife is looking for a white pair to wear for Nursing/work.

Yeah, I love my Keens! They rock. They are unbelievably comfortable. Spendy, though.

I like mine, good for the mud, good on a boat, good when standing up all day barbequing. The only color to get though is bright orange, just like Mario Batali.

For those experienced Croc users, do they breathe at all? The plastic-style material seems like it would cause pools of sweat to form.

The other issue is ugly tan lines to go with ugly shoes laugh.gif

Obviously you guys have never owned a pair of Chaco's. They are by far my favorite sandals. Originally they were made for River fishing in Colorado. Now they still carry the ones with a river sole to grip wet rocks. They make them with all kinds of soles now.

I would highly recommend them if your an active person outdoors. smile.gif

I bought a pair of Crocs when they first surfaced in CO about 5 years ago. They are very comfortable and they do breathe supprisingly well (lots of holes in them). The only drawback I found was that they fell off when I was kayaking (i tend to swim a lot in class-3 and they were always popping off). To solve this I went for Tevas. They do NOT come off in mud, water, rocks anything and they are very comfortable.

I have both crocs and keens and I wear my crocs excessively more than the keens. The keens are great boundary waters shoes.

I showed my wife a picture of crocs in a Cabella's ad yesterday. She quickly informed me that I'm never going to buy one of those ugly things....

Shotgun shells, bait, and beverages. That's pretty much all I buy.

Shoes do not fit into any of those catagories. grin.gif

I don't own a Croc but I work in a hospital, and I can say 85% of the people that work on the floor wear crocs. Everyone says there's nothing better. Beats me. I'm stuck w/ the leather dress shoes.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!  
    • Wanderer
      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake.
