      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 will try hard to make it and I think it will work. I have a boat that could be used. But I don't know jack about Muskies so if someone knows what they are doing and would like to try and teach a walleye guy I am up for that. Johan if you need any help let me know as I should be around most weekends this summer.

I'm in, Mantrap or leech, either one will work for me but we might have to think about the guys with smaller boats. I will have my boat. It might also depend on teh weather.

Sorry, but I'll have to stick with a "definite maybe" response. My wife will 8+ months pregnant at that time and I may get something cut off if I try make it. 'Course, I may still try make it...

I'll have to see what comes up by then but it sounds like a good time. Never fished mantrap before but have fished plantagenet and elk in the area. Have a cabin near lake alice that we stay at. I have a 16' alumnacraft with 40hp merc and may have room for one if I can make it.

I'm about 90% sure I can make it but cannot be sure until closer to the event. I do have a boat if needed. Doesn't matter to me which place between Zorbaz or Trappers landing. How will the pairings be worked out? If possible would be nice to have experienced people with lesser experienced people.

One thing I will note. My boat is over in Park Rapids all summer. So if it saves someone that is a experienced having to trailer a long distance let me know we can work something out.

      Reminder, meeting tonight at 7:00pm in Annandale and written comment period runs til August 28th. The email addresses for comment are on pages 18-19. Comment now or the days of fishing your favorite lake anytime you want, will be over! I’m sure this is coming to a county near you if this goes thru out here.

      Not uncommon at all for this time of year.  I used to try and find some regularly around Labor Day and always ran into problems.  I think its just the nature of the bait business.
    • BringAnExtension
      Does anyone know where I can get some jumbo leeches between the Twin Cities and Mille Lacs?  I would even settle for large.  There seems to be a shortage of supply. Thanks!
    • proguide
      Our prayers were answered from the south with some river flow. For now the river is back to easier and safer boating so we can get around.
        The catfishing has held steady, same as the past two weeks. The fish have moved to the shallow off current sides of the river since the nights have recently become cooler.  Sits have become longer to 25-35 minutes per spot to allow the fish to find the bait.  Mid-Day don't be afraid to find some current or move back to the middle to see if the fish have moved out to feed.
        Bait has been frozen suckers and frogs.  All other baits just don't seem to have the same effectiveness.
        We are entering into some transitions to fall and things will be changing over the next week or two.  The new flow should get the fish moving a bit more and that fall feed should ramp up over the next couple weeks.

      Also check for water in the fuel filter. At higher rpms water droplets travel to carbs and causes poor combustion. Happened to me some years ago. Had to drain water out of tank.
    • CigarGuy
      Skunked, It was nice meeting you.  I've seen you,  your wife and little one a few times, but you never waved-thought you might be mad at me after we had a little debate on netting.  Sounds like were good!  Stop by if you see me on the dock.  That was my wife and sister in-law assembling the bench. That pinch area on the river is tight and some folks tend to fly right thru.  Also, people fishing on that dock in the pinch down area in the spring, don't like to reel in their bobber when you try to navigate through the boats in the spring.  I used the fish the St Louis River a lot and fellow fisherman were terrible flying by you.  I too follow the no-wake policy when going through tight areas.
    • delcecchi
      Yep, done for the year.  Not much for heat or insulation in the cabin.  It's a real, honest to goodness cabin.   So, as of Thursday, adios.  Until next year, etc.
    • CigarGuy
      Del, are you done up here for the year?  Missing the best part of the year!  If you see me on the dock or out on the lake..say hi!  I wouldn't just drop in and introduce myself either-not my style.  Don't have to worry too much about anybody climbing the mountain to do that
    • delcecchi
      About 69 this morning.... And this concludes my reporting until sometime in 2018, Lord willing. But I will still be watching....
    • delcecchi
      I will add that it is nothing like the old days when throwing a marker was practically life threatening..... But that is west end.   If it wasn't for the musky  guys there would only be like three of us...
