      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 .

Bye, Bye Walleye In-Sider...

Recommended Posts

First the PWT, now the Walleye In-Sider mag is following in its footsteps. Another sad day as I really did enjoy that magazine.

That's too bad. When is the last issue?? I'm paid for several years, at least that's what I tried several times to do.

Only problem with In-Fish, Walleye-Insider, ect., is / was their, for lack of better term, Subscription Customer Service. In an attempt to clear up a multiple year subscription gift for myself, my brother and father, and accidental double order (on-line order), I talked to multiple "reps" that had no idea how to remedy the situation, and didn't know the difference between the different magazines (Walleye In-Sider, In-Fisherman, ect). One said there was nothing she could do. Another could see the problem, but didn't know how to change it to what I wanted. Obviously they had another company managing their subscriptions. I talked to one (out of 5) reps that was helpful. Otherwise, the CS was awful. Pretty sure I was talking to folks in the South (not in Baxter/ Brainerd).

Anyways, that's sad, but I'd be first in line to subscribe to anything put out by the Lindners.

I'll miss it for sure. Berkley Gulp must have dropped it's sponsorship. That's about the only thing most authors fished with the last couple of years it seemed.

I have nearly all the copies,since it was still in newspaper form backin the late 80's. Sort wish I had every one, lots of great info in them. I bought the first 8yrs of the MN trout stamp prints. great investment. I was looking for that in the walleye stamp.

Darn! I just started my walleye-insider sub this year and really like it. I get In-fisherman already but its a little heavy on bass for me.

What are some other good walleye mag subscriptions?

Not sure if you guys have read the FLW Outdoors - Walleye Edition magazine but it is very good as well. Obviously more geared towards the FLW tourney anglers and bodies of water but we still have a 6-8 months a year magazine dedicated to walleyes.

I will miss it as well but found it to be getting to the point I learned little if anything reading it. It started to seem like stories were recycled and it was more about advertising and pics than good in depth writing. Wich is the norm in this day and age.

Sure would be nice to have a mag that covered up north walleye techniques and waters.

Northlander, you said it, there is so much advertising in the magazines now. I want to read new articles, not have half the magazine filled with advertisements and recycled articles. With that being said, I hate to see the magazine go.

It was good about 10 years ago or so when you got a magazine every month, instead of the multiple-month issues they have now. Even with multiple-month issues they were getting pretty thin. I think I still have my old mags in a box somewhere....

    • Well he could just hum along with cume by later. Whatever, 
    • It will be interesting how many deer get harvested this muzzleloader season. 
    • I have been one of those that would use the oven to finish. I do not care for the smoke smell on my hands when handling the sausage. Did it seems to take the smoke residue off the skins using this method ?
    • Was out last night pulling cards and checking on blind for this weekend. A lot of bucks hitting and making new scrapes and does still going through them. Hoping still a few out running now they have had two weeks of no one really pushing them.
    • Then you can tell that to all the professional chefs that use sous vide.  
    • My new project involves putting my big boy pants on and upgrading from the 4'x7' panel on the fish house to a 8'x24' for the house. Believe it or not but I had to unhook it from the house for fear of starting a fire due to making too much heat. I haven't quite figured out how to control it yet. 
    • We have a gas furnace too. But if it's sunny we run the entire house on solar. Heat and electric. It may not sound like much but in that 8x12 we have had days where we need to open windows. The one thing it won't do is throttle down or turn off until the sun goes down. I know it's a duh thing but a consequence you don't think of at the design phase. It also works great when you aren't out there  it sure is great to come out to the house after work and the house is already at 60F or warmer   It was only an experiment for a larger project but turned out pretty cool. Something to do. 
    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal.
