      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

2009 Jim Dorrance Darkhouse Invitational

27 December 2009

Detroit Lakes MN

(Actual Lake To Be Announced)

I was talking to Jim Dorrance at the gathering in Perham this year.

Jim is an old timer who enjoys carving decoys but since he lives in a home he never gets to go out darkhouse spearing.


That got me to thinking how many other old timers are out there that don't get to go darkhouse spearing any more.

I thought it is time the younger generation steps up to the plate and gives these guys a day on the lake.

I asked Jim if he would be interested in that and his eyes lit up and he told me heck ya!!

So, I am just starting to plan this out, but if there is anyone on here that would like to help out just let me know.

Jim lives in the Detroit Lakes area so we would find a lake around there that would work for us.

Also are there other old timers in that area or that could get to that area that would like to come out? If you know of some one let me know.

I am thinking we will just have a good day on the lake where the old timers are catered to, a nice lunch, and of course many many stories from the old timers. It should be fun.

Let me know if any of you guys would like to chip in and help out in anyway even if it is just suggesting a lake.
