      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 .

Monster Quest

Recommended Posts

Usually these shows grasps at various things to dramatize the “monsters” they are hunting (footprints, hair, eyewitnesses), but last night took the cake. They were in the Amazon looking for a living dinosaur that had been reportedly seen on several occasion by local tribe members.

So here they were in the middle of Amazon with a $99 portable Eagle Fish Finder and a $99 Fish TV unit. They were drifting in a hollowed out log hanging the transducer over the side and waiting for something to “appear on the sonar” and then dropping the camera into the chocolate milk of a river.

They were convinced that a couple of blobs on the depth finder had a large round shape with a long skinny neck. So they would then drop the camera down….”can’t quite make it out, but I am seeing something down there”

laughlaughlaugh

I can tell you this, the MN river must be chock full of dinosaurs because I see that same exact shape about every 1/8th of a mile on my finder. wink

In fact one of them must have been hungry the other night as he took a swipe at my prop and took out one of the blades.

yes this season's shows have been on the lame side, wasn't last nights something about wild dogs? I tuned in to see what it was about and that seemed like the theme. The dinosaur one was lame too, that one has aired a few times.

There was another show that was on Sci-Fi, Destination Truth, same theme but at least the guy on the show brings a little sense of humor at himself and the monsters he is looking for.

I watched it a few times, but theyjust show nothing. And what you are saying is pretty much par for the course for them.

I love it when they run through the bush jiggling the camera all around after what they think is something, at least it makes it a little more exciting. cry

But they did have a good show about the sharks in the river systems and big muskies on Mille Lacs. But I do also agree that they kinda exaggerate things quite a bit.

They did a sea monster episode down in Florida and they have video of this thing splashing around in the water. They scientist positively identify it as a thought to be extinct species of seal. It was thought to be extinct over 100 years ago, but low and behold here it was swimming around in this one back canal bay in florida. This was the best and most educational episode I have seen, and yes I have the show on record all on my DVR.

So when people say I haven't seen one or theres no proof of one so it must not be real. I just laugh, and think the human race is so ignorant and naive to think that we are an all knowing race species.

I saw that seal episode and I do agree about that being a very good episode. Didn't they say it could have been a manatee hit by a propeller to cause that 3 pronged tail though? I do recall them saying that is was more than likely the extict seal though.

Ya they had one guy saying the manatee theory. Ya did how ever think that it was possible to be a hybrid of the extinct seal and a modern day seal. The extinct seal lived in cooler water while the other seal was home in either.

    • FANtastic! Congrats Donbo!   No bird for me today, hopefully tomorrow  
    • I will get one they will come over the brook and I will be waiting.
    • On Friday morning I decided to take the scenic way home from work and stopped at Browns Creek, just north of Stillwater, to shake off the dust on my trout equipment. Wasn’t any signs of life in the stream! I’m wondering if the DNR wasn’t able to stock it before the opener due to the snow conditions?    Saturday morning I ventured down to the Vermillion River. I personally don’t care much for this river, as I don’t think it’s any good. But I a bible study in Rosemount in the afternoon, so I figured I’d give it a go. Water was high, fast and dirty. Didn’t catch anything. Neither did anyone else I talked to.   Not the start to the trout season I had hoped for 
    • Just a matter of time then I would think. One of them will make a mistake and end up down the end of your gun barrel. It would keep my faith up just knowing there are that many around. Good luck.      
    • Hakuna matata on my deck
    • BBD!  More to come...
    • Bought from private seller; my mistake should have been one thing to check; there is no wiggling it at all, it’s frozen in there tried torching it to no avail; put everything back together hoping I could grease and crank up and down but the zerk keeps coming off, and now it doesn’t lower at all; will have to bite the bar and bring it in
    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
