      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 .

Yeah,, very compasionate about saying thanks to you guys, all who post here. I read Double L's post on thanks and how he was wondering about my new job, and my good freind barry. I didnt start a new job by choice. I was let go from a 11 yr job due to a very messy situation that i allowed myself to get caught up in. I own it. no excuses. but since Oct. 12th, it been a life changing experience. Highs and lows. emotions running wild, sleepless nights and bloody finger nails. But for the the last month and a half my escape has been here with you guys. Laughing and B'S'N with off the wall what ever. So thanks to the moderators for allowing this commerodity to continue with in reason. this place has been a refuge for me. And cant really come forth with words that express my gratitude to everyone for just being good all around red neck americans that just want to have a joke, a beer and smoked sausage. My hats off to all of you. And thank you for helping me, without know it, getting me thru a tough time. As I went thru the paces today at me new job there was so much release of tension, worry of the unknown, starting over type woe's. by the end of the day, my out look was, This is where I belong for now. Life is back in order. Thanks be to the good lord in directing me on this path, thanks epecially to smurf for his phone conversations with me borhter, and everyone here. you ar whats good in people. So to all a very special Thank you! from the family of Boar and the Boarlits. to yours. Hope everyday is a good day for you.!! 

Sincerely, Boarsquatch Fungus.

God Bless You and your Family Boar.  I've had some rough times myself, but then you know who your friends are as the old saying goes.  I put a lot of my faith in God and that's what pulls me and our family through.  Sounds like you have a strong family that's full of love and that's the main thing.  Wishing you the best in the future.  Reinhard

Don' judge a person until you know what they've been through....and then shut yer mouth. That's what I personally live by. Been through the nasty stuff in my life, and my heart goes out to ya, man. You're already getting it put behind ya, where it'll stay. I wish you and your family the very best...and here's a little something for you.... I put this up on my wall when an ex-family member was giving me dump when I had my issue. It's exactly how I feel, and it's true. My very best to you, Boar. You're already whippin' it....that's the only judgement you'll get from me.

1.  Lolas-  I've only been there once after hearing about it from buddys.  I will not wait in line to eat...anywhere.  I guess if they have somewhere to sit and have a beverage that's the only exception.  My daughter and I were in the area at about 2pm on a Sunday and I figured we'd be good.  There were two tables open only.  I think my daughter nailed what we liked best, the crust.  It had the slightest hint of a roasted marshmallow texture and taste when you got to the end of the piece, interesting flavor.

2.  Leech~~  I think the love happened due to a perfect storm of circumstance.  In one thread on HSO a guy watched a buck drown from falling through the ice in his backyard, we had Thanksgiving and Christmas is starting in full swing, it snowed and many freaked it would screw up the ice, and us fellers from the Cooking section all realized if you want a hassle free and fun experience post away on this forum and you'll be rewarded in spades, maybe Coffee did it.  Good for him.

3.  FYI, I don't love everyone.  When a news organization posts a job opening for Meterologists does it say "no experience necessary?"   75% of snowfalls are hyped beyond belief, usually given a name like a hurricane.  When the reality doesn't live up to the hype the list of excuses that they keep in their top desk drawer comes out.  Within two weeks the cycle repeats itself.

I'm keeping track this year.  I'm calling 0 for 1 on a "storm" producing what they were shoveling at us.  Surely the roads stunk Monday night but not many people are tooling around after 7pm so big deal.  

PS- muzzy deer hunting is a waste of time if you want to see a deer .  Another cycle repeats itself but I only have me to blame...I keep going.  Maybe it's hope? (Faith, Hope, Love...I guess we're back to where we started :)  )

Lots of love on here lately, it's great stuff, guys.

Having been on Fishingminnesota.com for years, I honestly have to say the page overall appears to have lost a lot of key contributors and the forums are not buzzing like they used to.  Who knows why, maybe it will see a rebound some day.  But the Cooking Forum has NEVER been better.  I guess it's a lot easier to share a recipe than your favorite fishing hole:D

Well hang in there Boar.  Good times are always ahead of us.  That is what I have told myself during a downturn in life.  And remember there is always new stress learning a new job.  That is part of the challenge.  You will do good pilgrim  So what did you have for lunch the first day at your new job?  Do you work at a pizza joint?  :D

    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
    • There is no way Koivu doesn't get more term and $$ in free agency, not a lot more but he gets more. Marleau is trending down and got more money, Hansel got 750 less and is not in the same league as Koivu. I was hoping for something like 4.5 or 5 but what he got at 2 years is very reasonable. He is a lifelong wild, our captain and a great player, we have no immediate replacement, he makes our team better for the next 3 years be it 1/2/3 center. This isn't something to get upset about, scandella trade sure, aging parise sure but that had to be done, not getting a young center sure but that can sometimes be out of our control because it takes two teams to trade. I get it people are bitter about last year but what fan base isn't bitter about this or that? 
    • I ran 10 gauge wire from my shore or generator feeder to my converter.  Way over kill for a 2000 watt generator but if you ever take it camping or run it off a 3k in the summer it's nice to be wired for the extra wattage.  10 feet of 10 gauge really isn't that much money on the whole project... nice thing about running your inverter directly from the battery and splitting a couple outlets is they are always ready to go.  Just hit the switch on the inverter and you don't have to mess with unplugging and plugging in strings of 110 outlets.  Behind my tv the bottom outlet runs of the Genny and the top runs of the inverter.  Nice thing is if I ever wanted to run the whole 110 system off the inverter I can just run a 6 inch cord with a male plug on each end out the top outlet and into the bottom and power the whole house.
    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
    • never been there, have to go!!!   off 10 right???   or where?? thanks!!
    • Thanks everyone for the replies. I am planning to go with the ac/dc distribution panel with built in converter and charger. Then adding an automatic transfer switch, and an inverter. I m going to bring  the exterior generator outlet directly into a gfci outlet box. Then wiring the transfer switch as follows... To the NO(normally open) terminals I will wire either a piece of 14ga romex with a male plug wired on the other end, or just get a cord of the correct size with the plug on it, which will plug into the "hot" gfci outlet being fed by the generator. I will do the same at the NC(normally closed) terminals, which can be plugged into the inverter. Then from the transfer switch output I will wire a piece of romex with a female plug, or correct size cord with same. From the main terminals on the 110v side of the distribution panel I will wire of piece of romex or cord with a male plug on it. That can then be plugged into the female plug coming out of the transfer switch. I figure wiring it that way gives me the option of bypassing the transfer switch and plugging the distribution panel directly into the "hot" gfci outlet from the generator if the transfer switch should fail. The transfer switch should feed the output from the NO terminals as long as they have power to them. If they lose power, i.e. turning the generator off, then the NO terminal close and it switches the NC terminals open and feeds the output from those, which would be the inverter in this case.   I had been told by one of the places that sells fish house materials that I couldn't wire an inverter in with one of their WFCO panels. I knew there was a way so I thank you guys for making me think about it a little more. I think this set up will give me exactly what I'm looking for. I plan on running a Honda 2000W generator, and then two 31 series AGM batteries wired in paralell. Will run the generator during the day when convenient, but also want the ability to "run and gun" more when conditions allow without needing to set up the generator every time just to power a couple small AC items.   Anyone have any experience with the automatic transfer switches? Go Power brand seems to have good reviews. Same with distribution panels. 2 I see the most are the WFCO and the Progressive Dynamics. YettiStyle, what is it that you prefer about the Progressive Dynamics panel? Better quality? Easier connections? etc...   Thanks again to everyone!
