      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 .

i have been having fun.  Just not here. 

OK you guys going to San Diego, when you are done at Black's beach here is something for you

As those of you who've come to any of our concerts at Sweetwater High School know, we were able to keep AMSD going thanks to the help of the school's Theater teacher, Ben Cassel -- and he and his students have put in a LOT of hours, helping us set up for and run the concerts.
 
Thanks in large part to donations made to the school's Theater Arts Program by our concert-goers, Ben's been able to produce plays again -- including taking productions on the road, locally as well as for recent performances at a big teacher's conference in the Los Angeles area.
 
They're presenting a play written by Ben -- Alicia en la Wonderland (it's in English)-- this Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the theater in which we present our concerts.
 
Following is information about the play.  I hope some of you who have gone to our concerts there will attend one of the presentations.  I know Ben and the students -- many of whom help at our concerts -- would appreciate it.  As noted below, there's NO ADMISSION CHARGE -- but donations are accepted and appreciated.
 
Carey
 

 
Alicia en la Wonderland
 
The play was written by Ben Cassel, who is supervising director, with student director Dianna Elizardo, who also plays Alicia. Crystal Mercado is the director of Bocón, and RoseAnita Hernandez produced the show.
 

 
Sweetwater High Theatre Guild presents the National City version of Lewis Carroll’s Alice books.  Presented entirely in English, Alicia en la Wonderland features a sarcastic teenager who follows El Conejo Blanco into a strange and confusing world.  There she meets the MEChA Cat, attends a party with the Hat Shop Guy and the Blonde Hare; takes part in the weirdest Lotería game ever played; and acts as a witness in the trial of El Borracho for stealing pan dulce.  Ultimately, Alicia discovers who she is by learning where she came from.
 
The high school students are joined on stage by the 8-11 year old puppetmasters of Bocón Community Arts Project. 
 
The play runs May 5-7Thursday and Friday at 7 PM, and Saturday at 5 PM.  There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted.

I haven't completely left guys.  I have always wondered what all of the word paranoia is all about here though?  Such as s i t e and others.  Irritated many of us.  We sure had some great times here until I got back from my long weekend and everyone is bailing due to one one-just-like-silly-me.  Yes I said a=s=s    That is way too bad, really hurt our whole camaraderie.  We did have something special here, or at least that is what I thought.  Told all of my friends and relatives too.

Uh...uh...ya lost me, Del...but I've kinda been that way all day today....and eyeguy hasn't offered me any photobombing pics to cheer me up, either.

I just got this in email from a concert promoter.  We went to one of the concerts he promoted, in a high school in National City, which is a relatively poor hispanic part of San Diego.  I thought it sounded really cool.  Too bad it is so far away, I would love to go. 

So I shared it...

Agreed. I took an extended timeout after having too many of mynoists edited or deleted while some other pro staff could do anything but cam back because of this forum and the group that was on here. Missed the whole kerfuffel but it was a necessary thing. Hope it gets the whole band back together.

Hopefully someone can talk RH into coming back. Sometimes a person just needs to say #$#$ it and keep chugging along. RH, RH, RH, RH you have more friends here then dislikers. I may not post a lot on here, but I enjoy the threads even when they do get off topic. That is when the laughs usually start and make it fun. Have a good day fellers!

Morning guys. I needed that sleep to clear me noggin after all the fluff'n stuff. 48* and sunny here. I sincerely hope we can get back on track and have a fun group again. I'm not going into it again, I was right in the middle, and I still have certain feelings over it too. I'll do what I need to, all I'll say is if certain people had had respect for others, followed the very basic forum rules, and weren't worried only about themselves, it never would have happened. I'm done talking about it. Move on or move out, I guess. So, later today or early evening, when the sun is on the other side of the house, it's stain the deck time. Did the top rails yesterday, and the 125 %$#@ vertical stringers. Walking the 4" roller on a pole across the deck boards is a piece of cake Should be done in an hour or so. I NEED that cawfee that's now done...have a good day guys, and bring the fun back.

I cooked down a goose in the slow cooker yesterday. Low heat for 10hrs in coffee, sea salt, garlic, and onion. 

Pulled it out and let it cool, then pulled it apart and mixed up a sauce of bbq, deli mustard, brown sugar, and cider vinegar. (I will admit that the legs and thighs may not have made it into the mix. Man they were good, not sure why people toss them)

Served on a potato roll and Topped with a homemade slaw of chopped wild ramps(bulbs and greens) and an apple.

It doesn't look like much, and always surprises me when an 18lb goose cooks down to 4/5 cups of shredded meat. 

But soo worth the work. 

Looks like i picked the wrong week to be out of town.

    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too.
