It Needs to be a certain size... what type of program do you have on your computer? You can resize in the paint program and then post on a photo posting site such as photobucket

It does have to come from a hosting site. You can't link it from your desktop.

I don't think you can do that. I haven't seen anyone with pics under their screen name that I remember.

This does work, and not everyone has avatars to look at, but quite a few do. If you cannot see any of them ever, you have to turn on the function in the My Home/Display Pref Edit page at the bottom. Choose Yes to the view other users pictures in their profiles question.

1)Go to a site like photobucket or imageshack and go throught the proceedure to upload the picture you want from your computer, resized to around max 109x150 size, and get the info for it. Highlight, Right click and "Copy" the thumbnail address that starts with "http//:".

2)In FM Forums, Go to "My Home" above in the line started by "Welcome, *****."

3)Edit your personal info.

4)Scroll down and click on the "url to your avatar"

5)In the area allowed, Right click and "Paste" the copied line.

6)Submit and look to see if it came up. If not, try again.

I prefer Latin for my Dead Language, anyways. That picture by KDawg's name is called an avatar. I can't help you if you don't say which specific parts you are having issues with. Have you tried going to one of these photo posting sites and uploading one of your pictures?

As posted above, the first step is to open an account at an image hosting site like Photo Bucket. Once you have opened an account, which by the way is free, you can send, or upload, your photos to Photo Bucket. What this allows you to do is post those photos on the internet.

So first off, do a search for Photo Bucket and open an account. Photo Bucket will give you easy to follow instruction for uploading images/photos.

Just as prints from a standard 35mm camera come in different sizes, ie: 3"x5" or 4"x6", so do the photos you have stored on your computer. The size of the photos are given in pixels, ie: 200x200 or 480x600, which really isn't that important as long as you understand that most photos are too large to be used as an avatar.

The largest size image you can use as an avatar on this site is 109x150. So you have to resize your photo to 109x150 or smaller.

I personally resize my photos with a photo software before I upload them to Photo Bucket, but I guess Photo Bucket offers you the option to resize your photos on they're site.

I used imageshack, but try each of the 3 different types from photobucket. Mine starts with "http://"; don't use anything in [] brackets. It sounds like you are most of the way there, and it took me a couple of tries to get the correct file type. You're close!

Use the one that says url link. Copy it and the paste it in personal preferences. You will see were it says url link to avatar. Click on that button, paste the url link in the text box then click sobmit at the bottom of the page.

If your using photobucket, the URL you want to use is this one: click on the picture you want to use. Resize to avatar size. On the bottom right of the page shoule be a series of websites. The one that has worked for me is the one labled Forums and Bulletin boards. The only thing is, after you paste the address, be sure to delete the %7Boption%7D. I think thats all.

I'm pretty sure if you delete the img off photobucket it wont show up. You have to leave the img in your photo album.

      We struggled on walleye on Frazer bay this saturday, so sunday morning I started throwing senkos.  Not quite consecutive casts like Wanderer, but i went all morning catching nothing, then caught these two cousins with 3 min of each other, smallie off the point, then the big mouth around the corner in a shallow bay.  18" smallie, 17" LMB. Good fun.    We did get about a dozen walleye on sunday night after the storms chased 15 boats away from the point we were fishing.  Mostly small, but a couple keepers.  Chartruese Jig and rainbows in about 10-12 FOW.  Couldn't buy a bite with a chub.

      I have good Jeremy how have you been doing. I need to get out fishing with you soon.
    • Walleye #1
      Stick in the Mud   I do think sometimes that those fish see so many jigs and shiners that something such as a crawler or leech is a great change up and will get bites.  Also with the bug hatches that are happening, those are two great baits.       Leech Lake   Leech Lake Walleyes once again found themselves spread out and in different areas and related to different pieces of Leech Lake structure.  Shiners and Leeches seemed to be the bait of choice for those Leech Lake Walleyes, but plastics are still catching some fish.  Be sure to stop in at Full Stringer Bait and Tackle, Swansons Bait and Tackle, Tutts Bait and Tackle, or Sportland Bait and Tackle for all your bait and tackle needs.     West End The LOA Fishing Guides found much of their success on the West End of Leech Lake.  Focusing in on the flats around West Goose in depths of 7-10ft of water, as well as the wind blown points such as Duck, Big Hardwoods, Ottertail, Pine, and Bowmans.  Sucker Bay also proved to have a good wind driven bite throughout the weekend.   A Jig and Minnow was the best presentation by far, but in most instances instead of jigging it, dragging or swimming it along the bottom seemed to work best, but when the front came in on Sunday the Leech Lake Walleyes were snapping and aggressively jigging was provoking the bite.  When things slowed down, slowing down with a lindy rig and leech put fish in the boat as well.  Green cabbage once again was a key to finding active walleyes and jumbo perch in 5-8ft of water.  Pitching an 1/8th oz KenKatch jig with a shiner caught Leech Lake Jumbos, Walleyes, and pike.  Slip bobbers and leeches/shiners also have put fish in the boat being either fished in the weeds or windblown points.   East End/Main Lake On the Main Lake, the rocks still were producing a great bite as well as some of the East End points such as Battle, Sugar, and Five Mile when the strong Westerly winds were blowing.  Annex, Submarine, Pelican, and North Bar were all producing fish in 10-14ft of water. Lindy Rigs with leeches or shiners seemed to work best, but the biggest fish still seem to want a 1/8th or 1/4oz jig and shiner.  
      Leech Lake Crappie and Bluegill fishing still remains strong.  When the weather warms up for a couple days both species are moving onto their beds and are actively feeding.  Looking to Boy Bay, Millers Bay, Shingobee, and Steamboat for the best action in 3-6 feet of water.  Just remember to use selective harvest as these fish are more vulnerable.

      Memorial Weekend,      Hit Waconia Saturday morning for bass. Caught about 40 largemouth--most from 14 to 17 inches, with a few 17 and 18 inchers--and several nice pike. Fish were in cabbage out from bedding areas, in about 6 to 9 feet of water. Fish were scattered, lying in the weeds looking up for sunfish that are staging in these areas preparing to move in and bed. With this situation, we buzzed spinnerbaits and weedless spoons over and through the tops of the weeds, and the bass aggressively came up on them, as well as some pike. Had one lazy muskie follow as well. Got good footage for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Added footage of a couple smallies from out in the Hutch area Saturday evening. The bass fishing will continue to get better as the water warms, with more big ones, and the sunfish bedding bite is probably only a week or less away. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Memorial Weekend,      Out on Washington Saturday afternoon and evening after hitting Waconia for bass Saturday morning. Caught largemouth, smallmouth, and pike. Added footage of a couple smallies to the largemouth and pike footage from Waconia for a bass segment of Fishing and Hunting the North Country on You Tube. Caught the bass and pike on Washington in four to seven feet of water, out from bedding areas, on spinnerbaits, Rippin' Raps, and Shadow Raps. Up on Mille Lacs this coming weekend for a walleye tournament, then will be back out in the Hutch area the next weekend guiding. We were targeting bass this weekend, but got a tip that walleyes are biting on a couple Hutch area lakes on live bait. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Geez Terry! Now you will be telling me that walleyes are only good muskie bait! Cliff

      Nice report Cret Musta been a thrill getting that 9.75 Gill.  
    • JeremyCampbell
      Wow dude lol Sup Moose how you been?
    • guideman
      Vermilion has excellent fishing for both bass species   The east end has the best Smallmouth action and the west end has the best Largemouth action, however you can catch either on both sides of the lake.  For Smallmouth, rocks, docks, points, saddles, reeds, wood and the shoreline rubble are all very productive. Most of the green bass are found in or near the slop and the west end has the best of what they like the most. Spinnerbaits, any color as long as it's white, stick baits, cranks, topwaters, jigs, swim baits and soft plastics all work for Smallies. Jigs, topwaters(Frogs) plastics and a host of other stuff will catch the green bass. Have a great time, the midweek traffic is very minimal.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bla bla bla, all this Walleye talk is boring me to death.   The real opening day is this Saturday when the Muskie opener comes to Minnesota and the Big V.  I'll be out fishing with my son and grandson searching for some real fish.   The weather looks great, my baits are all sharpened and the new line is on all my rigs. Bucktails, Glittertails, spinnerbaits and minnow style cranks will make up most of our arsenal, however we will also be tossing a few topwaters looking for those Big green girls and not even talking about Walleye fishing.   Have a great weekend everybody!   "Ace" "It's just fishing man"
