      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 .

One point away from our conformation title!!

Recommended Posts

My male lab "Koda", just got back from a weekend of 6 shows. He absolutely cleaned house. He ended up taking all six shows and one major. We are one point away from being titled and this was only his second weekend of showing. All six judges were amazed with Koda's conformation. He just turned two and needless to say I feel like the proudest parent in the world!! We are about one month away from starting our JH and my expectations only raise everyday with him!!

I can't wait to get him started with breeding. The dog is a very calm, tractible, and yet hard charging in the field. Plain and simple he is everything and more than I could ask for, this is all just icing on the cake!!

Just had to share our success over the weekend!!

Great looking Dog! Charlie sure has his act together as a breeder, doesn't he. Our Goldberry Lab, Tucker, is 3 now and he is a pheasant hunting machine! He looks alot like Kota's picture in your avatar. Continued good luck to both of you.

Great job ghost!

Now chase those field titles! You make him a SH or MH and you WILL have one of the premiere studs in the midwest! This is exactly what I have been promoting... looks, structure, coat, intelligence, tractibility and field ability... A LAB! What made them popular in the 1st place...

Go gettum!

Good Luck!

Ken

Thanks Ken! I really respect and appreciate your compliment! Koda I believe is the type of "lab" your describing. I don't know how I became so fortunate to come across a dog like him. He has every attribute I could look for in a lab. I will keep you guys up to date on our progress, he has the makings of being a huge asset to the lab breed!!

Wolfman, who was the sire of your dog?

Ghost, you can email me at vikeswinthebowl@hotmail.com

I have a ways to go yet, like I said she is only 7 mo

We will be starting JH the end of july or beginning of august depending if we are ready or not. My wife might get her into confirmation as well down the road. Breeding her also depends if all tests come back good which I pray will. This will be my first time breeding a dog so I have lots to learn.

I got one of goldberry's labs several years ago. I dont do the dog show thing, and his field trials are done with me and friends on the weekends chasing pheasants around. He is every thing i could want in a hunting dog. His picture used to be on goldberrys web site with a bunch of ducks we got when he was a year old.

Goldberry's does put out good dogs. Kev has a very impressive dog. You don't have to do the hunt tests or shows to have a great dog, that's not what I meant in this conversation, if people do them, it is to only help improve the lab breed and bring back the standards that made them so popular in the first place.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
