      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 .

New campground found!

Recommended Posts

My wife was lamenting about how everyone was camping in the parks this weekend and how we weren't. shocked

We have been looking at used campers because the prices are good right now. I'm not really the "camper" type-unless it's in a tent and on the ground.

I told the wife that there was a huge sandbar adjoining our property that would be perfect for camping,so we checked it out today.

[All taken with a Canon point and shoot]

Yep,it was big!



She had to take inventory crazy


The kids wouldn't leave,I had to carry out a 20lb. bag of clamshells.


I think this is a soybean? Maybe a goose [PoorWordUsage] it out?


Instead of being crowded at a park,I'd much rather pitch a tent out there,get a huge fire going,and throw out the lines for catfish when the sun goes down and listen to the woods.

The girls' friends and their folks all do the r/v park camping,but I would rather take them out here. Hey,maybe their friends might like this kind of camping better once they try it?

Seriously,does anybody still do this kinda thing?

Very inviting pictures you have there.

I'm with you on the hole pitching a tent in that kind of setting.

I usually get out on the St.Croix 2 or 3 times a year on spots such as those but this year has been a bust with the boat down and all.

Oh the memories of waking to a rising river or a fog layer 15 ft off the water and the morning sun sneaking its rays between the fog and water bouncing off the cliffs and shining back on the water. Reminder to self bring extra batteries for camera.

Thanks for the photo's, now I am going to really pester the guy working on my boat motor.

So, after the inventory does wife look interested? Looks like an awsome local.

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
    • Anyone going up on the 8th? Rengel wants another shot at the prestigious Nord Lord title, and me too! And quickfishnoob. Pretty sure there's ice this time.
