      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 .

Grizzly Adams died

Recommended Posts

Call me nuts but this bums me out.  Grizzly Adams was a great show.  Old #7, Jack, Nakoma, Ben all great people/animals.  Always thougth it was cool when Grizz and Nakoma did the blood brother thing when they cut their hands.  I could do it with someone with my dog chewed knife I guess to commemorate it.  May slice less deep than he did and chose the right person to not get a disease but I may ponder that.

I also liked Gentle Ben as a kid, loved the airboat intro.  RIP Grizzly Adams, Dan Haggerty.

Oh no.....I just saw him on TV a few weeks ago. Believe it was an American Pickers" episode, where they were at Haggerty's house and bought some of his stuff he was selling. That was one of my favorite shows, too. RIP, Grizz.

 Consistently kind and gentle, Adams discovers and demonstrates an uncanny ability to gain the trust of most of the indigenous wildlife of the region, and he helps, sometimes rescues, takes-in and tames many species. Originally a hunter, with his learned affection for wildlife Adams resolves never to harm another animal whenever possible.

Cripes, all you guys grew up watching that?

Did you join PETA as well?

:D  LOL

(kidding, watched and loved it as a kid as well)

I have to admit it...I just went and looked to see if they'd be airing reruns of the show this weekend.  No go.  I guess we're all nerds and/or not mainstream guys, kind of like Adams.  Buddy of mine sent me a video of "Battle of the Network Stars" he was on so yes he was a star!  Cheryl Ladd was on it too from Charlies Angels and I'm just saying old Grizz probably lured her in immediately.  Actually he got beat so bad in a race that I think he had rubber legs, I might be right.

I may watch my DVD of "Alone in the Wilderness" tonight in honor of Grizzly Adams.  I think you have to be a bit of a wing nut to move into near isolation but you could pee wherever you want and that's a bonus.

I have that too.  Great show.  When I was a kid that is what I wanted to do.  In reality even though I am a homebody I do need people too much to do that.

I read one of the reasons Proeneke moved to Alaska and isolation that in his job as a diesel mechanic they were forcing people to join the Union and he disagreed.  He loved his job and as you could probably tell he was awesome at it.  I'm just guessin that Old Smurfaclause and Dick may not have been best of friends.

I also wondered if he had some women problems.  Those would be some long cold winters up there.

That CD and book are on the shelf right next to me. He was incredible. Anyone ever read Kenny Salwey's Books? (River Rat series)  I have all of them, and love each one. What's neat is I have hunted and fished the places he writes about in his books.

Rivers scare me.  I've gone through pretty much any wave on a lake and I don't blink an eye, rivers are not for me.  I will have to check him out though.

 

Nothing like trolling down the Mississippi at night under a full moon...from Red Wing to Lake City..it's a real trip. Best ya know every inch of that river though, it's blacker than a you know what out there at night. I spent a lot of time on it growing up. My fishing buddy was a nervous wreck, "where are we?" Where's the shore?" "Are we lost?" I can't see anything!!!"   I ran the river by compass and triangulation, no fancy GPS for me then. I swear he fell to his knees and kissed the dock when we pulled into Lake City Marina at 1:00 am.  :lol:

    • Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.
    • I retract the above statement 
    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
    • I finally got out to try my first gen helix 5 this weekend.  Fished in 8 feet of water next to a lx5 and Lx7 in an otter lodge.  The flasher screen was not the best.  It was slow to react to my jig movement and i tried a few things to speed it up to no avail.  I switched it over to the graph and it was much better.  I am somewhat used to the graph as i use both on the LX7.  I didn't have any trouble with interference but i was only using the 200hz on the Helix.  It was definitely not in the same class as the Marcum considering the Marcum is a dedicated ice unit but as a dual use unit for the summer and winter it has lived up to my expectations.  I believe the new units will be much better in this regard.  Battery life was pretty good as i fished for about 15 hours on Saturday and i would say i had about 60% battery left.  Overall i am happy with the performance on the first outing.  I will chime back in when i get into some deeper water to compare the interference.
