      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 .

It's been kinda quiet in here lately. Hopefully that means you are all out having fun!

Didn't fish this weekend (again frown ), but we took our kids out for an after church picnic. This is a tradition we started when our kids were little.

We did not fish either, the wife (Terry) was down in Otsego with the grandkids. We just relaxed when she got home today. Super day for that!!

The family picnic and day together are the greatest thing a family can do!!

I went fishing but I was the only one to catch anything and all that amounted to was 3 super small sunnies and a sun burn crylaugh. But it was sooo worth it to finally get out on the lake with my dad, long over due. I hope everyone had a great weekend. smilesmilesmilesmile

Went to LOTW Thurs night thru Sunday. Cold and WINDY on Fri so no fishing. frowncry Sat around in long johns & sweatshirts by the fire & grilled a turkey. Saturday was nice and got out there twice. Caught 10 walleye between the 4 of us. Lakes were so messed up from all the wind they had the last 5 days. At least we came back with something for a fish fry. We also got a new truck (06 Toyota Tundra) Now we have something that can pull the bayliner again..!!!!! laughlaughgrinlaugh

I feel the exact same way about our Tundra. It's the newest vehicle I've ever owned either. I never drive ours. It's super powerful, fast and big. I like my car. But it hauls our boat and snomo trailer very well!

I caught 4 fish last night, wish I could have been out longer then an hour. 3 were suckers, but it didn't matter. More ball games this weekend, so probably won't get out for a while.

The season is over after this, so there might be a little time.

What kind of seat covers are you looking at. I would think the tiger stripped ones would look good. Would that match up with anything else, when your driving it. laughwhistlewinkwhistlelaughlaughsmirksmirk

    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
    • You might want to throw that on the C/list since by the time we are done, you may just have to give it away. Or tow it out to the woods with that heavy support rope!
