      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 .

  2. Will the eclipse affect fishing?

    I was curious about that also. I'll be in Ely during the eclipse, should be pretty cool.
  3. Today
  4. Will the eclipse affect fishing?

    Fish probably follow some sort of circadian rhythm and I'm thinking a bit of darkness one day every 100 years would probably just be a "huh, that's weird" inside their fishy brains.
  5. Otter fishhouse

    Will do, being my topic is receiving some attention again if any of you guys see a sale on otter fish houses please let me know, thanks.
  6. just the outer shell,
  7. Do you need the entire assembly or just the outer shell (#30)?
  8. Will the eclipse affect fishing?

    It's during the new moon phase, so you have that going for you. And the temporary darkness should help. The weather will probably have more of an effect as usual though.
  9. Will the eclipse affect fishing?

    just so the fish don't look at the sun!!!!!
  10. Trying to source a vent cap for a Empire DV-215 and I was shocked that they wanted $75 for this little flimsy part. I went to Menard's and they have plenty of them for under 15$ but they need both intake and exhaust which they don't have. What is everyone else using? In the big picture it's peanuts, however if I can save a little I will. Sorry for the double pic, not sure what happened.
  11. Will the eclipse affect fishing?

    interesting thought.....
  12. Stiff steering

    I know this is late, I just logged on for first time in a long time. The nut should be loose. Hope you found the fix.
  13. "We have been fishing together for 8 years, mostly around the Twin Cities area. Our buddy, Neal Nelson, won this trip from a Musky tournament down in the cities and he picked this resort! Luckily, he did cause it was a trip we will never forget! First trip we have all taken together, first time ever up to LOTW for all of us and will be an annual one from here on out!. Biggest fish was 43" Most fish were ranging from 36-43" " - Borowske/Nelson Group

  18. Will the eclipse affect fishing?

    had a fun conversation this morning about fishing during the eclipse. we all know the magic hour in the evening and how great it can be to fish during. Could there be a similar affect during the eclipse? My thoughts are that it will happen so quickly it may not have an affect at all. We will not be in a full eclipse here but have a partial eclipse. But I would love to take the day off of work and give it shot
  19. Turkey talk and a little strutting

    Yep boys are always ready. You will see some strutting all year even gobbling in the morning still. I've called some in during October strutting and gobbling. Sure nice to hear when in stand.
  20. Otter fishhouse

    that is what I'm seeing too.
  21. Looking for a new puppy

    They are getting good. Her string of posts were actually very down to earth.
  22. Looking for a new puppy

    Working on it Zach
  23. Otter fishhouse

    Seems to be a lot of these one day join, hit and run, never to return newbie posters.
  24. Otter fishhouse

    She is a bot I wouldn't click it @monstermoose78 this is the post I am talking about
  25. Looking for a new puppy

    she is a bot I reported her but I don't have any mod powers on the HSO site so hopefully they can take care of it. If you look at her other posts they are all like this. I the bot takes key words of post and then post something that is similar topic then they hope you click the link in there signature. @monstermoose78 look into her activity feed. Like the thread about a otter sled and she responds back about how to bring a fish home from the pet store.
  26. Getting to be that time of year again. It's always fun to get the sledding season juices flowing and pick up some deals. I just picked up a beat up used sleigh to haul the grandsons out ice fishing. Hope I can roundup a few items like a windshield, seat pads and some big cat stickers before I start fixing it up and repainting it! Arctic Cat colors! Outlaw Swap and Grass drag. Aug 25th & 26th. Haydays swap and Grass drag. Sept 9th & 10th.
