      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 .

Hello boys and girls. Next weekend I finally get a break and I am attending a golf tourney on Lake minnewaska in Gleenwood. Just looking forward to getting away. I need it as many hours as I have worked recently. I think I am feeling like Lisa, (always working and not enough play time). Glenn got any tips on that lake as the boat is going for a ride.

I also can say I have not seen or heard a thunderstorm yet this year. I have missed them all(not like there has been many around the cities this year.)

I had a friend driving home from St Cloud during that storm. She said the clouds were really freaky around Cold Spring!

Heading to northern WI for the weekend I think I may be a bit chilly in the tent. I am going to the Camp That I went to as a kid and worked at in my 20's. It is the 50th Anniversary for the camp. I also hope to maybe wet a line or 2 we will see.

Hope

I love weddings.

You mean there are actually people that love weddings. shocked Most of them are the usual same-o boring repetitive stuff copied from the weddings they had been forced to go to. whistle

It's just 64 degrees in SW MN and destined to hit the 40's tonite. Weird weather this summer.

I love weddings so much I some how end up as part of most of them I attend crycrazy. I was at Oake on the Water this afternoon, it was WINDY on the lake but worth it for the band. I plan on heading up to my dad's this weekend and getting some fishing/tanning done on the lake all day Sunday. Long overdue, that's all I have to say.

Everyone have a great weekend smile!!!!!!!!!

I headed down to the Twin Cities to do some fishing with Char and Tami. We hit up Lake George, 2 northerns, Green Lake in Isanti county, nothing, O'Dowd lake, nothing. But we had fun, I think I am getting Tami spoiled by letting her run my boat. Sure is nice to sit back and let someone else do the driving. Took a couple of pics I thought I would share. They were taken with my phone so they are not the greatest. (This was the weekend of the 16th)

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
