      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 .

So what is the story behind your choice of avatar? Mine is just a simple big fish story on my favorite lake.

I just like to shuffel through various pics. In fall I had a pic of me and the kids with some geese, this one is of a 'eye I got ice fishing on LOTW, hopefully I'll get a pic of a pannie in the near future, and then hopefully I'll get a pic of an 'eye after the opener. Just change my avatar as the various seasons progress. smirk.gif

Mine is from my last perch trip on Mille Lacs Feb. 24th.

It might look like the video repeats, but really I was hammering them left and right...What a day!

Oh, if I look a little jaundice (yellow) that is because I traded one of my livers for a portable ice shelter the week before the trip.

My two kids doing the "Fishies" dance around the minnow bucket. Needless to say the wife doesn't appreciate the dance that much. It is performed in the garage now, that is until the boat hits the lake

Mine is a picture of me before the opening kick off of a football game against Red Rock Central from my Junior year, came back in the second half from 18 down to win that one.

I really should get something up from the championship game in the Dome, or maybe something of a fish.....

Ummm... I guess its just a catfish. tongue.gif

Actually, it was the biggest cat in the boat that remarkeable weekend last June on the Red River. 40 cats in 2 days fishing for a grand total weight of over 600 pounds. Unreal! I think we had 6 cats over 20lbs.

First big catches, even if dwarfed by later catches, are always memorable. Thats what this one is.

I started bass fishing only a couple years ago. This pic was of a 3+ pounder in the first year I started that I pulled out from under a fallen tree trunk in 3 feet of water in Mink/Somers on a wacky rigged 4" black senko. It was a hot, windy summer day, and the sun was just tipping over the treetops. This is the fish that sealed the deal for me and my bass addiction. My buddy Greg snapped the shot. Since then I've done most of my bass fishing alone, so my bigger fish don't have photos.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...
