      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 .

Gissert.....
I think I'd rather be chuggin some of Gisserts Ice Brew, than listening to Gisserts Golden Country Oldies on the CD player! (unless you could you do a cover of some Slave Raider tunes!?)

The official Zorro Party slogan----
"We leave the shiat behind!"

WallEYES , OK , You will be Co-Sportsman of the Year den. It will be just like being VP except it's spelled different.
Senator is a good idea too but you have to own a pro sports team or be married to an ex president before you can be a one of those don't you ?

OF COURSE you like the Zorro Party ! Your the founding father of the party born of necessity. My vision is still blurred from that henious deal.
The Zorro Days festival runs the 19th through the 23rd this year I heard. It's like Haloween except you have to carve a Beet instead of a Punkin. LOL

Chells , GOOD ONE ! LOL

Alright yous guyss, since you seen to have picked me, it's time I disclose my platform for the upcoming election. I gotta say that I like the 1x8 pine in #2 or better. Now that's a platform. I just consulted with my campaign manager, Mary Moon (she's a vegetarian ya knooowwww) about the prospect of running a successful campaign. Her husband, Jack Spratt suggested we keep it simple. All current company included, simple should be no problem for us at all. Weak minds think alike. Debating anyone else is out of the question. No question would be simple enough for us to answer, and that would suit us just fine. The opposition would be so frustrated that they would just concede defeat and leave everything in our uncapable hands. So here it is: the rest of the Platform.
1. A free Butt Bridge for everyone. (of course, you would have to build it by yourself.)
2. Six months of ice every winter.
3. Minnows that last forever. (2 scoops for the price of one)(shiners will be the same price as fatheads.)
4. People who disrupt your fishing at prime time will be made to purchase a one way ticket to Southern California.
5. All ice augers will come with a free 12" extension.
6. All rods for sale in stores will be of premium quality and cost little to buy.
7. Gasoline will never cost more than 1.25.9 per gallon.
8. All walleyes over 19" will be released. Walleye fishing will commence on URL in 2004.(It's time! That's all we catch up there now!)
9. Crappies will be easier to find. (Especially after the 'eye season closes.)
10. And finally, all ice fishermen will be regarded as equals-and never have to be afraid to share information without being chastized if they might not be right on the mark. Lord knows we've all had a foot in the mouth from time to time!

Since I can only count to ten, this has to be it. If there's any campaign promises that you would like me to NOT keep, please let me know....Taks a mika!.....The Bone

Gissert , You will have to take and go into the beer brewin/swillin business when Tom gets elected.
You could call it SOY Beer - Sportsman of the Year Beer. LOL
I nominate Walleyes ( Public enemy #2 ) for VP. I predict a landslide victory for the Zorro Party ! LOL

Zorro Party Slogan;

"HOLD UP MY PANTS WHILE I REEL THIS ONE IN!"

Or,

"OH MY GOD, WHO BROUGHT THE TP?"

Now we got to find someone to be Monica Lewinsky.

    • You are 100% correct... a guy has to be smart about it. There is nothing magic about inverters... its takes a lot of DC juice to make a little AC juice. On the flipside though, I have a 120vac 32" TV/DVD player that only draws 51 watts AC.... meaning that it should (hypothetically) only draw 4.25 amps DC. Even with a 15% draw added for the inefficiency of the inverter, I am still under 5 amp. Usually I will run the generator for a few hours between 10 am and 2 pm. Then it is off until 7 pm or so... Then I will fill it up and let it run through out the night. It will run about 9 hrs on eco, so by 4 am or so it is out of gas... but the batteries are topped off nice to run the routine again. The 4 hr run isn't necessary, but does offer some security. With a 5 and a 7 yr old fishing with me the majority of the time, the TV usually doesn't turn off during the day.
    • I believe the crawlers are not natural forage and using them as bait emulates large larvae.  
    • Like I stated earlier and others with more knowledge than anyone on here have as well..we should have waited...I also was unaware of the no trade clause which he was able to get without any less $$...pure stupidity...we'll know in 8/9 months how this pans out...it boot straps us from further improving the team with younger talent is my main issue. As far as a captain, lifelong wild...blah blah blah....if he is such a pillar, such a great player, such a leader of the team...where has he taken us? The playoff record speaks for itself....time to dump guys like Koivu at the soonest opportunity who have done all they can or at least decrease their pay in later years not increase them...they took us as far as they could...and we've already got vets like Parise, Suter, Spurgeon, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin locked in on long term deals; give one of them the C to carry us forward.  
    • Where ya going? Numbers are pretty bad this year... I would suggest looking at Edmunds or Faulk county if you haven't already locked in somewhere.
    • This is my first time hunting bear. Have two coming to the bait, both after dark, and the small one shows up at odd times in the early A.M. I was thinking a honey burn might tempt one or the other to come in during shooting time. The big guy comes in after the little one at night, but he hangs around for an hour. The smaller one comes back multiple time during the night. I have tried to come in before shooting time, but I have bumped him twice now.  
    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
