      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 .

Great Sturgeon fishing

Recommended Posts

Well, all I can say about the Sturgeon excursion is it was a great time. Approx 60 people made it to this event with the weather and ice conditions not looking the best in the forecast.

We stayed at Schuster's Resort, and as always they were very accommodating. I would like to thank the gang at Schusters for all the effort they put forth for a great stay with them.

The fishing was the best I have seen in the two years I personally have attended. Many 50+ inch fish were caught and many more in the 25-40 inch class. We fished the river the first day as the ice around the resort area was still on the river. Friday night with the help of warm weather and some rain, the whole area opened up.

I used my new Lund Classic boat and this boat worked out very well. Quality and Comfort from one end to the other. Paul W took a pic of us and hopefully he will put it up on this thread. You can see the back-end of my Lund above where Joe is netting my sturgeon. You owe yourself a test drive in one of those Lunds.

Here's Paul W in his Lund Pike 16 (Mine is nicer grin.gif )

If anyone is still thinking about making a run to the LOW for some sturgeon action, I would call Schusters and get a cabin as the action should still be great. Its hard to explain the action from fishing these pre-historic fish and how fast and furious the action can be and this fishing action is likey to be goiog for a few weeks yet.

The fishing was awesome. We got 14 sturgeon Sunday morning with 3 over 50".

Here is Joe and I with my 50.5" sturgeon. This baby was a bottom hugger.

As for Tom's Lund Classic 1660 - I'm jealous. Talk about comfort and fish-ability, this baby has it. This Lund is a quality unit built for ease of use and mobility. Did I mention ALL DAY comfort.

Sorry, if I got carried away there about the Lund, but it was THAT NICE.

With the 14 sturgeon and 4 nice suckers pushing the 8 lb range, the fine weather then to top it off fishing in Tom's Lund and it made for a nearly perfect trip.

How about the rest of you who were up there... cool.gif

Hey! I recognize that spot! wink.gif

Aside from fishing trips with my family members, this was by far THE highlight of my fishing career to date! I still shake my head and laugh about all the good times, great people, the great cabin and lodge at Schuster's Resort and the phenomenal fishing that was had. I can't hardly put into words what it's like to tie into one of these fish. Brute strength and stamina in its purest form; that's about how I sum those fish up.

Although the ice seemed to be a concern before we got up there, it wasn't a problem at all. Temps in the mid 60's to 70 degrees made for laying down a good sunburn base blush.gifsmile.gif and the winds were relatively docile the whole time there with only a 1hr shot of rain that didn't slow us down (or the fish!).

As I mentioned in the open water forum, it was an honor to meet everyone and put names to faces. Simply a great bunch of people. This trip clearly goes down in my history books and I look forward to adding to it in some 362 more days!

Thanks Schusters and FM for such a great trip! Anyone who has been there has said it before, but now I can say it myself.....this is a get-together you MUST attend! You won't regret it! laugh.gif
