      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 .

Im thinking on waiting a week to put out my daughters bait in area 41. it would actually be 22 days to the friday after opener, i dont like baiting that long before the opener. thinking on waiting a week for qouta and hunting opener in non qouta. whats are youz guyzes planz??

We will probably do the same, get the sites ready  and hang our signs, but not dump any bait right away. As far as hunting, if I would have been drawn this year, I would be in the stand Tuesday morning for sure. Get in a few days of hunting before all the weekenders start filling up the woods, and the wheelers are tearing down every trail!! Labor Day weekend always seems to slow our baits down for a few days. If you don't mind me asking, and I don't need specific area, what part of 41 do you hunt? That's the same area we hunt.

I am undecided what I am going to do yet. I think it will depend on what kind of bear action I have at my sites come the 1st.

Oh no problem at all, I completely understand. 41 is a pretty small area in the grand scheme of things. A good friend of mine has a cabin in that area and his family has been bear hunting for 20+ years. When they were issuing 450 tags and letting guys shoot two bears a few years back, it was getting pretty crowded in the woods. Im happy that they have reduced it to 150, hopefully they will keep it that way! Im sure there will be plenty more conversation before the season begins, but good luck to your daughter!

For sure, anytime. I have been known to drink a beer or two, every now and then. Once August hits, we are up every Tuesday night (bait on Wednesdays) and every weekend. This year, we have a couple of weddings in August, which is poor planning if you ask me!!

We are hunting opener.....just a thing we have to get the first crack at them.  Many times the second week can be better, but its just how we roll!

Bringing up a bear virgin this year, so it should be a blast.

    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?  
    •   If you think about this option I would try and look up some reviews. I would worry about it peeling or flaking off over time and having to keep re-coating it a lot. Bonding could be a big issue.
