      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 .

Hutchinson Area Get-Togethers

Recommended Posts

B@ssDoctor

Time to start thinking about a Multi-Species Get Together ever week on Wednesdays. Poeple have shown interest in the past few years, but nothing has happened. I know there are other weekly get togethers that people belong to, but I would like to start a new one.

Would anyone be interested in this......

Since I didn't officially call it a L%@$#ge or a Tou%@ment, I hoping that LMITOUT will let this slide...... laugh.gif

I think that a get-together would be more likely to happen rather than a structured league or tournament as most would prefer to go fishing without the rules and pressure and just have a good time. Come whatever time you make it and leave when you want to type of deal. Not to say there can't be any side wagers wink.gif but with no "fee" I bet more people would be willing to participate.

If there is enough interest in this thread, I'll create a new thread and sticky it for discussion of more specific info and details with suggestions by those interested.

I would likely attend if I didn't have any conflicts. Set a date and time, and you can probably count me in!

I should clarify that if it's a one-time get-together, I'd likely attend. A league would not fit my schedule (although it would be fun if I had the time).

No, not a league format but rather something more informal. I'm not sure if a weekly thing would get enough people, but maybe every two weeks or once a month? All depends on the feedback here so lets hear everyone's thoughts.

Are you thinking about doing the same lake each time or trying different lakes?

Different lakes around this area. Mix it up a little.

My idea would be to have get togethers periodicially at different lakes. Meet at the lake and head out for the evening or day if it's on a weekend. No specific species to target, just head out and have a good time on the lake.

Some lakes to think about would be: Washington, Belle, Erie, Collinwood, Minnie Belle, Stella, and others if suggested. Maybe put them in a hat and pull one out to see what the lake of the week/month is depending on how often we do this.

I don't have much for a boat, but I'd be all for something like this. I know another guy in my neighborhood that probably would be up for it too. If it was on a weekend we could make a camping thing out of it too.

When I started this thread, these were my intentions:

Wednesday Evenings: 6:00 start at the defined launch/lake-8:30 end time until May 9th. 9:00 thereafter

Location: Locations/Species for that location defined at the beginning of the year. A couple of Mystery nights/Species thrown in.

Entry Fee-None

Limit 2 or 3 people per boat-

Species Limits for weigh-in: 20 pan fish (crappies/sunfish combined) /6 bass/3 pike/8 walleye. Any additional numbers/types of species may be kept for personal reasons.

Weigh-In- No weekly standings. Daily weigh-ins recorded and posted on the Internet.

It would be nice to have some sort of an “unofficial format” so we can keep it fun but organized. We especially need to watch the weigh-in limits so we do not have dead fish, dying fish to deal with at night. The other reason to define the lakes prior to the season starting would be to do the work now (deciding on what lakes/species) so when open water comes, all we need to know is what bait to bring and where.

Let me know your thoughts…

I'm open to anything and it should be based off what the majority wants to do. I don't fish bass or panfish so those nights don't interest me much personally.

The thing that bothers me with "weigh-ins" is the trouble it causes at the boat ramps. I've been witness to many a bass league night and it does nothing but disrupt a relaxing fishing evening for those not participating...especially at these smaller lakes around here. They all think they are Roland Martin and $100,000 is on the line and the lake is a mess for the rest of the night. Their boats clog up the ramps because they pile in at a certain time and pile out later at the same time. Courtesy doesn't exist on these nights as those who are not affiliated with their group seem to be imposing on their league night. I don't want to be "one of those guys" and I don't want this to be "one of those leagues". frown.gif

During the work-week doesn't usually work for me personally. But whatever is decided, I'll keep an eye open and if I'm able to make it to an event, I'll let you know.

I would love to see a few things about bass fishing. There is always time for everyone to learn a thing or two.

I say we all get together and rip some mouths.
