      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 lived on an island up there that only had black bears so we never really carried handguns or anything or worried to much, but where he is up by anchorage (with the big ol grizzlys) when we were on that particular trip he brought along a gun although it pretty much stayed in our tent and never came outta the case. That bear came real close and it was a little sketchy but he just grabbed one of the fish and darted back into the alders. I even woke up one morning and got out of the tent it was still dark and there was a bear fishin about sixty yards from the tent never bothered us though.

AK is a mans playground....lived there for 5 years. Nothing in the lower 48 compares....but with that said, there are a few things about AK that I don't miss as well. Live it up man!

Fishkid,

Altho in Vegas I am a Minnesotan at heart and ready to get back there to my farm soon--Northern MN. (Altho I fish there winter and summer all the time.)

I am interested in the birds--actually my wife loves wild ducks, geese, pheasant (she grw up in So Dakota. How good is the bird hunting--yes, I know no pheasants--but on the ducks? Geese? I was told the seaducks are great to hunt, but nothing to eat.

thanks,

Wahoo

dude are you talking about the ducks in mn or the ducks in ak? A duck is a duck it all depends how you cook it. i marinade alot of my ducks and grill them and they all taste the same i will shoot them all sea ducks mergansers the so called good tasting ducks they are all the same. i dont discriminate when i go duck hunting

    • Just caught a blip on the news about another new Invasive species found in Lake Superior ,,, What do we need to do ,, Put some of these invasives in the drinking water of our law makers water to make them do their job and stop  this contamination of our waters ,,, Im pro mining  but draw the line when it get too close to spoiling the clean unspoiled water of the BWCAW ,,, And you know whos gonna pay the price of Invasives in our lakes 
    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
