      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 .

Check out this link it shows how easily your can get hacked with your online transactions. Keep your Anti Virus upto date and be very cautious about what you install on your PC. And never go to a site listed in an email and give any info about any of your banking type of accounts or any personal info for that matter.

What does this have to do with open water fishing?

It may not have anything to do with open water fishing, but it is a good reminder to those who shop online. Maybe you are getting ready to make a big purchase of new fishing equipment from one of the major online outdoor retailers and you could use a reminder to make sure you have updated your antivirus software. Just someone trying to help out.

I put it in this forum for visibility. And like Polarsusd81 said it's something that we all need to think about every now and then.

If it doesn't pertain to you disregard it and don't read it.

I got that link yesterday and the best I can figure why it won't work is that it is out of date.

I just checked it again. It worked but I had to refresh the page to get it to play. Not sure what is up with that. The video is named "Robbing your Nest Egg".

I use macs at home and work -- I am so lucky, nobody wastes their time on Mac viruses.

YET, just remember that these hackers are hitting the machines that are out there more than others, meaning as soon as they figure out that Mac's are underprotected and are there just as much as the normal pc, you will be a target. I hope you have some plans of back up.

Having spent my entire career in the Computer Systems Development (40) industry I can only say: If the hackers and creators of viruses would put their time and energy into productive development efforts they would be satisfied and financially rewarded far better than the life they are living.

It is not only virus, spyware and malware that are the problems. The problem could be a site you are connected to. If a site gets hacked you can be redirected from a secure site a non secure site(be sure that you always at a https:// not an http:// when doing anykind of online ordering.

Also don't go to any site that you are referred to be an email and give out any kind of personal info. I have seen a couple of pretty real looking sites that some of our staff got referred to.

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
