      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 .

I can't imagine using the forums not being registered... did you all (guests) know that it keeps track of what posts are new? They are highlighted in blue. Even if you don't ever post... you should register just for that.

Lot's of times, I just read....besides, last summer somebody confessed to being an FM aholic, this way, without logging in, we can remain closet members, like sneaking something without anybody knowing we are there. I confess, I read a lot of times, but really don't want or have anything to reply, so I don't login.

I have been a member for a while now. For the longest time I just read and rarely posted. But recently I have had more opportunity & time on my computer and post regularly.

I think the stats get a little misleading at times, some of the "anonymous" users are actually registered, they just are not logged in. This happens to me a lot, especially when I am on here at my work computer. But there still is many that should regsiter and add some posts to make this site a little more active.

I get lost in all the info if I do not sign in. Register and join in. Also you can check to see who is on line and find area's that you have not been to and check them out. The "who is on line" feature has brought me into circles I did not think I would be in. It is fun, but only availible to register FM member. Its free!

I read the forum for years and determined that all fishermen are liars laugh.gif

So I decided that okay, I'll join, just to help say a thing or two that might be truthful...

Oopss...I said one truthful thing now. That leaves only one more truthful thing to say. grin.gif

Yes, there are always a lot of people viewing every day. That is why I said in some other post that when people talk about hot lakes in here, it gets flooded with people afterwards....

ARIZONA_TIM

My voyeuristic days are over!!!

Hello fellow FM’ers…my name is ARIZONA TIM and the wife and I have been in MN for almost 2 years now. We moved up here from Phoenix for work but the other big selling factor was all of the lakes/fishing!

We live near Nokomis so I’m out there about 2-3 times a week.

I caught my first ‘eye today which was a whoppin’ 8 inches. Nokomis was also the sight of my other first…a 9 lb musky last June. I was on a fishin’ high for a week after battling that mutha.

This site is pretty cool and I’ve enjoyed all the tips that everyone has offered up.

Thanks folks!

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!
    • workin4bait
      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.
    • kelly-p
      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.
    • KidMoe
      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff
