      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 .

If I'm going to be in a boat for a while I bring some beef jerkey, or some sandwiches in a cooler! You really can not have enough beef jerkey.

Smoked oysters and triscuts, they're just so good once they hit your lips! Also, beer. I've tried not having anything with me, and it just gets to be too much if I'm doing an all day trip. I can't get up at 4 and not eat anything until night.

Superstitious charter captains don't allow bananas on their boats, they say they bring bad luck laugh

I'm not superstitious though and frequently bring bananas along. Jerky or beef sticks too. And sandwiches --- a lot of times I'll get a sub on the way to the lake and save it until I get hungry.

The perfect food for fishing is powdered donuts.

Just think of all those fish you are handling, maybe you catch a northern and get some slime on you, maybe you're needing to mess with the engine now you might have a little grease on you, maybe some gas. Maybe you sprayed some bug spray or put on sun block, all of that stuff leads to having some pretty funky fingers that you may not want touching your food.

The answer is the powdered donut. When you pick up a powdered donut you will notice that you are left with the powder coating stuck to your fingers creating the perfect barrier from all of that funky fish grime.

You haven't lived until feasting on powdered donuts and beer while pulling in a limit of walleye.

Smoked muskie and a bass sandwich! Ok, seriously no bananas or fish food products. Beef jerky, doritos or cheetos, little debbies, and lots of water and diet dew (to combat the little debs and chips). A lot of the time its just water. Too many fish to catch to bother eating.

Hey those gummie worms work for bait also, Panfish eat them up. As said before JERKY and sandwiches, I buy a pack of cheese slices and lunch meat and squeeseable mayo and loaf of bread. Good to go all day. Drink lots of water, and not out of the lake.

Beef or venison sticks, Snickers miniatures and beer or 'Dew depending on the time of day.

Never could understand how a boat owner could alow sunflower seeds on board. Those #&%! hulls are the WORST thing to try and clean out of a boat and any hulls that are missed attract mice during storage.

    • Ain't even Labor Day yet. As my bus driver use to say "What's da matter witchya?"
    • LOL  Absolutely right! Delmar, didn't you ever winter camp? In a tent, in the snow? You should try it! Or, put a barrel stove in that palace of yers! Nothing like a cracklin' fire to come back home to...that's what makes it fun!!   Now HERE's an uninsulated cabin! And fulla bats, with no windows! Screens and sheets!  Chimney comes down to nothing, stove was ripped out years ago. Home for me and my buddy for 3 days every year while fishing the tourney up in McGregor. 29* at nite.....
    • Oh boo hoo,   fare weather cabin dweller. The spring and the fall is best time spent around a fire inside or  out.
    • The first snowmobile that my Dad owned when I was a kid was a 340 Arctic Cat Panther that looked just like this one:   After I left home I didn't get back into snowmobiling until 1998 when I bought one just like this little number brand new:  
    • Glad your well guy took care of the problem.  But a drilled well typically has a submersible pump down at the bottom of the well so it needs no priming, regardless of circumstances.
    • Gets a little chilly with a space heater and no insulation...
    • Foreign even! They sure like this site for some reason....
    • Dear Del, Regurgitate it all again, since that is your only option and nevermind the truth behind how the human body works.  Del, you let a handful of bad seeds sour your taste for Chiros but fail to see that you were prescribed high cholesterol meds during a routine blood test that you probably no longer takes due to new findings on cholesterol.... LOL, cant make this stuff up, it really happens, but go ahead and post a link from some Gazette you found on page 5 of your google search.  LOL, cant make that stuff up either, it really happens, and its being threatened to be used! Whoa ho ho bud, scary materiel there.... "You must cite studies but I can copy and paste from SportsAuthority and some "The Patch" article"  Wow, step down from that mountain top you seem to think you belong on daily.  "Cite studies on an opinion you dont hold, but i have insinuated you do time and time again as ammo against you, because chiros are crazy" LOL, man Del, get off the internet bud. I've explained the relationship between the quads and hamstrings, I dont need to cite a study but I am very glad to know that in your eyes,  something only becomes effective once it is commercialized, a study is worked up-people are paid and you are influenced that its good through repetition of those things and tightly toned bodies.     The only thing I disavow that I somewhat defended in the past on here was processed sugar and cane sugar.  Pure evil.  I consume anywhere from 3-6g of processed sugar weekly, dropped from 200 to 188 in about 2.5 months and you couldnt really tell except for my face a little.  You want to see an adult on a sugar high, you dont have to go far to see one....   I'll be waiting for you to share someone else's article and opinion..... Your friend, -Juice
    • Problem solved... There is a pressure valve about 8 feet down.  Turn off the power, open a valve and when the line pressure drops below 15 psi it self drains to 8 foot down.  Extremely happy as this makes turning water on and off for the weekends sooo much easier than going down to the lake and priming the pump with 5 gallons of water poured into a 1 inch pipe..
