      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 .

Yea for those that fished last year, this is probably going to add about 20 minutes onto your trip, but the fishing is well worth it. The fishing should be very good if the weather holds for all of us. Hopefully that weather forecast will change a bit between now and then...

Alright, I hope you guys in the Metro division are just being secretive. Last year we always had some talking on line before the event. I suppose if you all just want to concede defeat to unstoppable duo of "The bald and the Beautiful" then we will gracefully accept. By the way, I am the beautiful part of the team name.

I made it down with Mr. Clean (the bald one) to prefish last weekend. It was tough finding fish. We found a handful of good ones, but it was tough.

Has anyone else been fishing down there this week?? If so, where are they? What were you catching them on? and I'd like some GPS coordinates please.

I will have my secret weapons with me on Saturday. Mr. Bud and Mr. Weiser. It might be a slow day for fishing.......(or not).

Be careful getting out of the launch area. The bridge is narrow and Mr. Clean bumped the piling pretty good. A boat with 90" of beam or more fits really tight through there. Make sure you're paying attention and having your partner watch the other side of the boat.

P.S. This is an awful long way from the METRO. Plan accordingly.

Don't you mean the "Bold and the Beautiful?" Sounds like we have ourselves a new soap opera team to me grin.gif New reality show, starring you and Lance grin.gif Brian and I don't need GPS coordinates, we just follow our senses wink.gif I hope you bring plenty of your secret weapon, you're gonna need it grin.gif LOL

Ok, all joking aside, I'm looking forward to seeing you again and getting a chance to BS a little. Hanging out with you at the catfish event this past winter was a lot of fun, see you on saturday! Take care!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
