      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 .

Nissan or Zojirushi are the best "Hi-tech" thermos systems on the market.

I have a pint Nissan I can carry in my jacket, handy for a quick shot of Joe. They run about $30. If you snoop some you can get the 1.1 quart for about $30. www.cafemaison.com/cafemaison/mugs.html

The deal I really love is my Zojirushi air-pot. Oh son, that bugger keeps hot stuff hot for days, no kidding!

I bought mine in Fargo at the Red River Coffee Co. The store is in West Fargo across from the Sta-Mart in that new mall. They got good beans there too, Uf-Da. They have a web site too I think?

I use mine a lot while guiding. It hold a bit more then a pot of coffee and if you pre-heat it will boiling water it will seriously last 2 days and be nice and warm. I can set it on the ice and it will not melt snow, so they hold there heat very well.

They run about $45. Stainless steel outer case and a locking cap, well built and easy to clean. No glass, all hi-tech so no worries about dropping it. I bash mine around all the time, still works great. A good investment with a solid warranty.

Nissan Stainless hands down! Since I have had one, my coffee stays hot twice as long as it did in a Stanley-and I carried one for years. The stainless is a true vacuum bottle. When you tap on the side you can feel it hum......T

BWE and Tbone,

I've got a question for you on the Nissan products. How durable are they? I had a Nissan travel mug that was bent and broken after just a couple of months of use.

My Stanley SS thermos is indestrucable. How about the Nissan thermos?

Nice to know you're a coffee geek, BWE....that makes two of us.

The Nissan Stainless takes a pretty good beating. I've had mine for three years and it goes with me everywhere. It has a dent or two in it alright, but no decrease in performance. Yep, I know the Stanley's can take a beating too. But these stainless jugs keep stuff hot a lot longer. I bought mine at Gander on a closeout sale. It was already dented and I got it for less than 1/2 price. Didn't care about the dent. I think the difference is the vaccuum between the fluid part and the outside. Anything like insulation between there can conduct the heat out of the fluid. Like Eddy said, just fill'er up with hot water before you put the coffee in and you're set........T

Nissan.
According to my wife, I have had my Nissan thermos for close to 10 years. She gave it to me for Valentines day way back when.
If you take the years of use devided by the cost, it is money well spent.
This past weekend I filled it with hot coffee after I emptied the hot water. This was at 4:30 A.M. I poured the last cup of coffee out of it at 5:00 P.M coming off Lake Winnie and it was still hot, not warm, hot.
Good Luck...

    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
