      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 .

yeah, it was a fun trip although the fishing was a little slow. sam is a great guy and it was great to get to know him and brian graff a little better. i tell you, those guys have some great stories to tell around a campfire. Me and Porter will also be on Minnesota bound at the beginning of June, we shot a steelhead show this spring and it should be a good one, we got a lot of fish on tape.

You guys deserve it, the way you've been hitting it since I met you, congrats! Looking forword to the MN Bound, please post when that show will air. Many of us will watch.

And to think only a couple short years ago IllTakeWhatICanGet was a bottle of Old #7.

Once again, you guys deserve it ( still how did QS get a 1" x 1" photo & Porter get center stage??? grin.gif )

Excellent work from Sam, as always. Also doesn't hurt to have two relentless young fishermen to write about. grin.gif

Way to go guys. Looks like a fun trip. It was a good read especially the part that made you guys hero's. I have had to make the same frantic paddle toward someone else's rig. Keeps you on your toes.

I was tryin, but they must have photoshopped it out. I'm surprised you recognized me without the chest hair, it seems like lately you've been pretty fixated on my chest blush.gif

It was a great trip, even though the weather didn't totally cooperate. Gotta take what mother nature gives ya though, and we had a lot of fun despite the wind. The Minnesota Bound episode kent mentioned should be airing on June 2 at 8:30 am on channel 9- as far as they can tell me at this point. If anything changes we'll keep you posted. They got a lot of good footage, so it'll be cool to see what they did with it. Bill, the producer we filmed with, said it came together really well so it should be fun to watch...

Man, if I had only known you guys were going to be newspaper and tv stars I would have got your autographs at the Paddle Inn in Janurary. wink.gif Seriously, it was a good article and I am looking forward to seeing you on MN Bound. cool.gif

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      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.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      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!
