      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 .

Some favorite foods you can't find anymore....

Recommended Posts

One of mine is the Birdseye frozen peas with pearls onions in butter sauce. They no longer make them. Dang!! I loved those...another one, that I even called the company on, is Blue Bunny Raspberry Swirl ice cream. Quit making it a couple years ago. Blue Bunny lady said they never sold much of it, so they discontinued it. What the hey?! I Found that hard to believe; it was great. The breads they have for sandwiches now are poo, whatever happened to good ol' Sunbeam and Butter Top? Only white I can stand now, and it's really hard to find, is Sara Lee Old Fashioned. I'm talking plain old white bread for those quick PB&J sandwiches and pack-a-lunch for fishing sandwiches, not the whole grain unhulled tootsie-frootsie health nut stuff. Otherwise, I eat a lot of rye and oatmeal grain bread. Anyone else can't find any of their favorite foods anymore?

Almond Crescent cookies.  The have powdered sugar on them and you can find em at Christmas at Target.  They may be the best cookies out there.  I think it makes them good that they aren't available all the time.

Try the Iced Almonettes that are sugar free...They seem to be available everywhere...even Smurf's not favorite store. :P  I love 'em.

I think that's part of it. When you live in places like Bugtussle, selection gets limited partially by volume and partially because Scandinavians won't eat anything that isn't white and bland! :P I mean, we're lucky to get Chicken in a Biscuit crackers because the locals complain they're too spicy! :crazy: Now that I've attempted to run this thread off the tracks, I haven't seen those white fudge covered Oreos locally for a long time. And believe me it isn't like I haven't looked. Even in some of the larger stores in Owatonna & Albert's Leaf I haven't seen them.

I liked that spaghetti in a box too. And this stuff: Must've been too spicy. :D

I eat a lot of sandwichs at work so get tired of them.  Making smoked meat is great for them.  I used to like that jellied beef sandwich meat for a change.  Expensive though.  I haven't seen it for  years.  Seems I heard 10 years or more ago why they quit making it but can't remember why.

    • Btw......for you bass purists .... a couple days before the above success, I located mostly largemouth with one smallmouth on the edge of bulrushes adjacent to a deep drop off.  Probably a dozen fish in 20 casts with a Senko. Nothing of any real size. Always fun getting fish on four or five consecutive casts.
    • Great find! I did a little research and did not find an I.D.  Hopefully someone will know what it is.
    • 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
