      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 .

Tanning on the Zumbro Report – 4/29/07 (2 pics)

Recommended Posts

I had the opportunity to take my wife and RugbyGuys’ wife out on the boat this Sunday. They had big plans on catching a few rays, conversing, and relaxing. I was going to fish and it was my job to keep them in the sun and out of the wind & waves (like I could control that).

I pulled up and anchored into our second spot and hit a fish on the first cast. Then another on the 2nd. I was on crappies. I went on catch fish after fish for about 30 minutes, when I looked over and saw Andy’s wife reaching for her rod and asking if it was rigged correctly. About 1 minute after her bobber got wet, it sunk. FISH-ON. As I was taking her fish off, my wife grabs my rod and casts out. FISH-ON. This continued for nearly 45 minutes and I was running between the 2 girls taking fish off, and making sure our boat was positioned correctly. I’m positive the girls put 25 crappies in the boat and they both smiled and laughed the entire time. My wife may never admit it, but I know she had fun fishing that day.

All in all, we boated somewhere around 60 crappies and 1 gill. The fish ran on the smaller side with our largest going just under 11” Maybe 10 fish were over 10” Not too bad for fishing the middle of the day when the sun is the strongest.

Culprit paddletails with blue/purple/chart colors did best for us today (and I tried several colors). I also caught several crappies freelining a 1/16 oz jig with a white Berkley Gulp Minnow Grub 2”

It was a great day to be on the water and yes, a tan was attained. Given the company, this is my favorite outing of the season so far.

Look at those smiles!

Who's the girl in the third picture? Meooooow!

Tyler, you did it wrong. The first time you take the girl out, you make it a horrible time. That way she nevers asks you again if she can tag along with you and your buddy's.

Glad you had fun. Alex and I got out to the lake around 5:00 and everyone that was coming off was fried (I'm sure like you 3 were). We had a good time, caught a few fish, but the wind with terrible. It finally died down around 6:30 and made for a good evening, even though we got off the fish.

Too bad we couldn't catch you out there. Next time.

We did a little fishing Sunday late afternoon also. We hit big numbers on sunken wood with a few big ones. All were released.

Tyler,

You need to teach the laddies to hold the fish so they look like 17 inchers! smile.gif

WoW, Holy moly. The ones in that picture look upwards of 17" cool.gif

They certainly look nicer that the ones we are holding and they prob are. I couldn't find any nice fish on Sunday, so I'm glad somebody did.

I'll add "the hold" to the long list of things I need to teach my wife about fishing. If she wouldn't practice "selective listening" so often it would make my life much easier. blush.gif

Anyways, Nice fish.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
