      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 .

Now available - Official HSO Coffee Mugs

Recommended Posts

These 11 oz. coffee mugs come with the HSO logo on one side and on the other side, your choice of fish and 1 additional line of text. You can choose a walleye and have it read under the fish "The Eyes Have It", or Pro Fisherman, as an example. It is totally up to you. However, you do not have to have a fish at all. The choice is yours. These premier (not made in China) coffee mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe. The image is burnt into the ceramic. You can't even scratch the ink off of these. You won't find a better quality mug. The reason I can offer them at such a low price is due to me doing all the work myself, including printing the mug.

The cost for a mug is just $12, which includes sales tax, postage, packing box and PayPal fees. If you would like additonal mugs, they would be $8 each, due to the cost of postage dropping. If you do not have a PayPal acct. and wish to send a check, the price will be just $11.35 or $7.50 each for additonal mugs. Or, if you come thru Marshall and want to pick it up, the cost is only $6, including sales tax.

I have included a photo showing the fish species available. They were taken from a public domain site. If you aren't a fisher person and would like to provide your own photo, this is another option for the same money, or you can go with just the HSO logo.

If you go with 2 photos, the logo will be about 10% smaller than shown on this mug, but if you go with just the HSO logo, the logo will be about 20% larger than shown and centered on the mug.

One more thing. If you have a special request without the logo, no problem. I can customize it to whatever you wish, for no extra charge.

You may reach me at 507-530-5940 or bassangler@charter.net, which is also my PayPal address.

Due to a member not wanting a golden walleye, I reworked the 'eye so the color is more true to life. I haven't uploaded the new one, but if you'd like to see the reprocessed 'eye, let me know.

    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy.
