      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 .

Oh boo hoo,   fare weather cabin dweller. The spring and the fall is best time spent around a fire inside or  out.

LOL  Absolutely right! Delmar, didn't you ever winter camp? In a tent, in the snow? You should try it! Or, put a barrel stove in that palace of yers! Nothing like a cracklin' fire to come back home to...that's what makes it fun!!   Now HERE's an uninsulated cabin! And fulla bats, with no windows! Screens and sheets!  Chimney comes down to nothing, stove was ripped out years ago. Home for me and my buddy for 3 days every year while fishing the tourney up in McGregor. 29* at nite.....

Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that. 

Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.

A 'fridge!!! Luxury livin'! Means electricity.....why propane lights then? We had to "cooler it" those three days. Didn't matter, one entire day was out on the water for 8 hours for the contest. (Once you came in or docked, you were finished) That nite was drinks and dinner at Bann's Supper Club...:P

My F-I-L in the picture is probably about your age Del. We stay in this place for grouse and deer season and he thinks it is the best place on earth. No electricity, no running water, need a chainsaw and 4 wheel drive to get to it, and heated by a home made wood stove.

Whatever.   Yeah I would have stayed, but like I said, if mama ain't happy....

I offered to drive her back to Rochester and then come back in a few weeks....   Didn't go over to well.

I'm sure he'd have no problem, especially since it is still summer. Who has their heat on this time of year?

    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.  
    • If that's lunch, I'd love to see dinner!! 
    • We can't find our recipe for pickled beets. Haven't done this for a couple of years.  Wife and I both certain we didn't cook the beets.....we just packed them in hot jars, poured the brine over, then boiled the sealed jars for 15-20 minutes.  I can't find a recipe that says you don't have to cook beets.  Does any one have such a recipe?  Our brine contained cinnamon sticks and cloves.  I imagine we could just add these ingredients to any regular vinegar/sugar/water brine though.  Mostly just wondering about using raw beats vs uncooked beets.  Thanks...Jim
    • Looks good, for sure. 
    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there.
