      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 .

I'm a casual fan, but I don't think it's the best on right now IMO. Definitely good though!

If it was on at 9 pm, it would be one thing. But at 8 it's a little PG13 for a PG audience, especially when bookended by the other sitcoms on around it. My wife used to watch it, so I did too, until they had an episode that joked around WAAAAYYY to much about suicide. I told her that was the last time I was ever going to watch it. I'm pretty thick skinned and all for the quick in-and-out joke, but to keep hammering on it the way they did got pretty disgusting. If it wasn't for the endless lineup of ridiculously hot and scantilly clad lays for Charlie, I think alot more people would be looking elsewhere, too. That kid, while being pretty funny, is a pretty bad example of a 13/14/15/16 yr old kid. I know, I know; it's just a show, but push it to 9 so the kiddies have a harder time getting to see a 14 year old puking his guts out from drinking in front of his drunkard uncle, with his plastered Dad giving the OK to the situation.

I'm with BKS. I think it is THE funniest show on TV. It is about the only show that I make time to watch.

It doesn't air until 9:00 around here. But, I wouldn't watch my teenaged daughters watching it. It's a good thing they are married and on their own.

I watch the show, I'm not a prude, I don't think it should be pulled off the air, but to me the show has gotten too crude and juvenile. It's almost like they aren't even trying anymore. They just write up a bunch of jokes like we all told each other in 3rd grade and film it. It's just not as funny as it used to be. Jake has become a much better character now that he's older. That's one area that has improved. It's still a good show, just not as good as it used to be IMO.

Family Guy is about the only thing on right now that makes me laugh out loud.

That and reruns of Seinfeld and King of Queens

This is probably one of the best shows on TV right now.

I agree and have thought so since it has aired. Okay it's not for kids, but frankly neither are another 30% of shows out there. I don't have any problem with them showing humor thats intended for adults.

What irks me, is how silly and pathetic all these reality shows are. "I'm a Celebrity, Get me Outta Here"? "More to Love"?!? Who watches this stuff? This is the reason that 80% of my TV viewing are cable shows and sports games. Anyway I really like the mold of sitcoms: Seinfeld, Cheers, News Radio, etc.

Been watching it since the beginning and it's always good for laughs. I would agree with the views on kids watching. Me being in my late 20's and single it's appropriate for my demographic smile

At times charlie and alan's shenaningans get old and jake has turned into a painful character to watch but then they get the wild cards involved and the humor is back. Rose and Berta being the wild cards. Good stuff

Lots of eye candy as well.

The big bang theory is the best CBS comedy these days. Probably need to be a bit of geek to really get it but thats me so I find it hilarious.

I agree DeBo. Big Bang theory is one of my favorite shows right now. I love Sheldon, that dude just cracks me up.

Two and 1/2 Men is a very good show. I am a Seinfeld fan down deep down, but this show ranks up there. This is the show of today, Seinfeld was back then...

    • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D8B7xbrAGw   Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees. This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze. The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless! With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch! Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain. I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too. 
    • How about using a AGM battery. They are sealed so no need to vent. I use one in my Yetti for the last 3 years. I also use a big volt and run a forced air furnace. I made an extra storage area in front of my rear jack knife sofa for the battery. I remove the lid to access it to hook up the big volt. After drilling the hose I reconnect the house power back to the battery. I used old jumper cable ends from my power source to the house. That way I just pull off the cables when I leave the house. No drain on battery when I’m gone. Easy access. I had it under rear sofa that was a pain. Best change I made to the house. I got the old cables off a dead jumper unit at the landfill. 
    • The Marcus Willimans that plays for the saints is not from Minnesota. The Marcus Williams that you are referring to plays for Houston.     Going to be 52 degrees there????? 
    • Did you ask @Wanderer since it was a picture you took from his post?
