      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. Wild Regular Season 2017-18

    Also no way to predict who will show up and start doing it, not like a lot of people were picking a Lemaire led wild team to the conference finals, or last years Ottowa or Preds to do what they did. Lots of parity and deep/skilled teams in the league these days, any team can get hot and make some noise, might even be our year, you just never know when things are going to click. It id not like the North Star cup runs were made by great teams, they just got hot at the right time. We have more than enough talent on this team to get on a run, just need to find that spark and have all of them start playing their best at the same time. We saw some of that last year, just had a terrible finish to the seasons and couldn't bounce back in time.
  3. Today
  4. Super Bowl lii

    Have no issues with the Eagles team, but their fan base can suck it. Hope football immortality puts on a clinic and wipes the floor of the People’s Stadium with them. Skol Pats!
  5. Shaffer Opposition

    Looks pretty cool... Only issue I question is it’s functionality when it gets wet/frozen up and long term use/abuse?
  6. Super Bowl lii

  7. We could be riding the nsst

    Yeah, well the cops may not be to happy if they find me running up and down the streets!
  8. Yesterday
  9. Shaffer Opposition

    Must be super popular! I guess I’m talking about the XV rest, though it is referenced as Opposition in a few places. Dont all jump jump in at once now!
  10. We could be riding the nsst

    OK You got 14 inches of snow and your posting on here instead of out riding ,,,, Not going to listen to any complaining about not getting any miles on the sled
  11. We could be riding the nsst

    Hey guys come on down here for a ride. 14" inches in Brooklyn Center!
  12. Wild Regular Season 2017-18

    You finally nailed it there Bear
  13. Perscription Costa sunlasses?

    That was kind of an estimate but probably not to far off for Costas. Another reason I want to use the frames I have now with regular lenses so I don't have to buy the frames to and they don't make the frames I have now anymore. But they will make prescription lenses for them.
  14. Couple more pics from the trip I forgot to add. I tell you guys what, this one pintail limit is killing me. Can’t wait for next year when they bring it back up to 2!!
  15. Perscription Costa sunlasses?

    600 bucks just for lenses? Seems like a lot of money. I have worn prescription sunglasses, polarized, bifocal etc for years and don't recall ever paying near that for lenses. Of course they were just regular grey ones but still.....
  16. Any Morson Reports?

    Great pics and reports..what a nightmare with the house in the slush...never been to Morson, always stay in Nestor Falls and chase trout...had a good opener with no mechanical failures for once...
  17. Just Food and Drink

    My bad, indeed I mistakenly said purple when I should have said leech. Then purple replied and I didn't get why he was confused so replied to him again. Sorry.
  18. Nice job! Great looking birds! for me that looks like an expensive season because a number of those birds would need to go on the wall. Trifecta on the teal.
  19. Just Food and Drink

    Dave, stay with the conversation. Del was replying to Purple above. I was just adding a little clarity on the types of diets Del was talking about.
  20. Perscription Costa sunlasses?

    I don't have Costas but ALL of my sunglasses are bi focal. Tying hooks, seeing GPS whether driving or fishing or just needing to see or read something without fumbling for glasses. It's worth the cost.

  23. Just Food and Drink

    The problem is you referred to Purple instead of Leech.
  24. Any Morson Reports?

    I was up to morson over the weekend . The weather was great. Made a run up to whitefishbay for trout on Saturday didn't get any. Also made a trip into arrow lake and got some walleyes
  25. Supper

    I don't think he has a precision circulator or a water oven.
  26. Any Morson Reports?

    Yes there was a lot of snow . I found this slush along side sunset chanel.
  27. Does anyone here have prescription Costa sunglasses? Thinking about getting a pair or at least the lenses and having them put in the frames I already have. How do you like them? Did you get Bi Focal put in them? Sounds like about $400 for the prescription lenses and about another $200 if I want the Bi Focal. Considering maybe just getting the prescription in the sunglasses and maybe a regular pair of glasses with the Bi Focal.
