      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 .

Starting a thread for reviews and opinions of this movie for everyone. I saw it yesterday and thought it was Phenomenal. Bigelow knows how to make a film. Definitely worthy of Picture of the Year. Acting was superb and the interrogation scenes were incredibly intense. Even though you know the outcome, I was shaking in my seat though the entire raid. Incredible attention to detail throughout, best experience I've had in a Theater in a long time.

Get the impression that there's an underlying message that we're worse off (from an intelligence gathering perspective) now that "enhanced methods" are no longer allowed.

What happens in the end? laugh I have heard a few mixed reviews on this it gets a bit drawn out but i cant wait to see it.

It was a longer movie but I didn't feel it got drawn out, they crammed A LOT into 2-1/2 hrs. I would've sat through another 30 min if they would've examined how the SEALs relentlessly trained for months. It kind of looks like they just got word and went in. But in the end, it's not about them, it's about the CIA. If it were a fictional plot, I could see how it wouldn't translate well. But because it tries to tell a real-life story as close as it possibly can, I think each scene has purpose and insight.

Thanks for the suggestions Smurfy! I read "No Easy Day" and enjoyed it. Didn't really see the hype around possibly revealing secrets and tactics. There was nothing in there that we didn't hear about on the news or see on Discovery Channel. But I can see how the SEAL community would be upset just about the fact that their business is even being talked about.

I thought it was an awesome movie and told the story well. The time of the movie goes by fast! Yes its 2 1/2 hours but it whips by, the opening in the dark is powerful and brings back the emotions of 9/11.

Agree,

Much easier to accept the scene that follows after having to listen to hopeless 911 calls from people getting burned alive.

Esquire has a story out today with an interview with the ST6 member who is supposedly the actual person who took out OBL. Good read.

I haven't seen the movie yet but it'd be interesting to see how the two stories stack up against one another.

The raid had a lot of similarities with the book "No Easy Day." To the average guy like me (and I would think most people reading this) the raid looked flawlessly executed on film. But they have a former SEAL on KFAN from time-to-time and he said the tactics they used when clearing the compound room-by-room were not portrayed well--smaller things like how the guns are held, muzzle discipline, banter between the men, etc.

Still a heck of a flick.

    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
    • There’s a nice stretch of warm weather. I just wonder if it’s enough to melt our local lakes by opener    Then the fish have to spawn
    • Got gobbles off the roost and they are now on the ground.
    • Allready hear them 
    • Thank you jets for stomping us, we clearly needed to be put out of our misery. 
    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.
