      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 .

Muskie Guru HSO Pro Staff Rob Kimm is there right now, Walleye and Mille Lacs top gun Pro Staff Director Paul Waldowski will be there tomorrow and a few of us HSO/FMers Staff will help man the Anglers Legacy booth over the weekend starting Friday afternoon working on getting more new and young anglers out fishing.

Here is a bit off their site:

Anglers’ Legacy campaign, aims to collect 50,000 pledges this year.

It’s our responsibility as individuals and organizations to help people discover, share and protect the legacy of fishing, So take the Pledge and take someone fishing, and we can leave the sport and the resource in good shape for generations to come.

Creating Momentum

Anglers’ Legacy continues to gain momentum, as nearly 200 pro-anglers and fishing celebrities have already endorsed the program and producers of fishing radio and television shows are rapidly signing on. A recent survey of more than 700 avid anglers shows the campaign is working - nearly one third of those who have seen the Anglers’ Legacy campaign message have already taken someone new fishing.

Get connected to the cause and Take the Pledge! To become an Anglers’ Legacy Program Partner.

Stop by and see us won't you??

Hiya -

Thanks for putting this up, Rick.

Angler's Legacy really is a great program. Recruiting new anglers - young, and old - is the only way to make sure our sport stays strong in the future. In the 1970s, more than 40% of all Minnesotans bought a fishing license. Now it's under 30%.

The great thing is, all you need to do to get someone into fishing is take them. That's it. Research by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation has shown that if you take someone fishing once, it's a virtual certainty they'll go again. But if nobody takes them, they won't start on their own.

All you need to do is pledge to take one new person fishing this year. That's it. There's no strings attached, nothing to buy or anything. Just promise to take someone new out fishing. And at the show, they're giving away some really cool fishing journals to the 1st 1,000 people that sign up. Signing the pledge takes about two minutes...

Now here's the challenge we've been given. I talked to someone from Shimano who was at the Bassmaster Classic in Alabama. They signed up 1500 people there. He challenged us to beat the Alabama number. I'd love to do so...

So stop by. There are two booths - one right next to the DNR booth (pick up your fishing license while you're there if you don't already have it...) and one at the Dan's Southside Marine booth. Stop by, say hello, and TAKE THE PLEDGE!

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

1500? That is a pretty low number compared to all of the people that head down to the sports show. Lets take the pledge and show them that Minnesota is serious about its fishing!

Thanks Rick,

This is a program that Appeldoorn's Sunset Bay Resort is going be getting involved with in his coming year. It is a great way to not only get children and others who have never fished fishing. But more importantly, teach these future fisherman the ethics of the sport!

Good luck at the show Rob and Paul!

Fish On!!!

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.

      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.

      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that
    • delcecchi
      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...

      Told my wife I wanted to watch hooker....  she said " you aren't watching any hookers while I'm around"   rim shot.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T
