      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 .

It's that time to prepare for another season to vote on rule changes, lakes and nominations for 2005 Metro LETS.
I am asking all teams to please email me directly with suggestions to be placed on the ballot.
FM_DanWood@yahoo.com

For lakes, please remember the lake requirements are:
-decent size lake
-Good multi-species lakes
-Good access to hold 15+ rigs
-Weigh-in location

Please include in your email:

1.) Mystery event or mystery series (either one event or all events will be a mystery to ALL until the night before the event)
2.) Each team should give me 2 lake choices to put on the ballot.
3.) Rule changes, additions, etc..
4.) Nominations of league officers. President, Vice President, Weighmaster, Photographer and Treasurer.

Please email these to me rather that post publicly as it just turns into a debate. Thank you.

Dan, I fish the statewide LETS and I'm interested in the metro for next year possibly. How far out from the cities do your events travel? Lake Washington/Lake Stella in Wright County would be good lakes to try.

Hey Doug,
Washington is on the nomination list for next year, not Stella yet though. this year we had a 90 mile maximum distance for up to 2 of the 6 lakes, the rest within 60 miles. I was just planning to take all lake nominations at this point - there may be some restrictions on distance, not sure on that yet.

Hey, there he is... Mike was the one that nominated Washington... Didn't realize they are a chain...

Forget what I said.. Just looked at the map, this looks like it would be a good possibility...

how about Minnetonka? i would rather do it early in the year so as to avoid boat traffic. White Bear Lake? i have never fished it but heard it was a good lake. i am not real familiar with the metro lakes, so that is as much as i can come up with.

    • 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!
