      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 .

Made the trip out to the island in some fog ,,, Fishing was rather slow till we put a pattern together ,,,A fellow fisher man had a waterwolf camera and showed us some underwater video which helped us put our pattern together,,, Weather was cool but calm seas helped ,,,, We didn't get any salmon or steelhead and from the chatter on the marine radio neither did any one else but the lake trout cooperated ,,, Making plans for another trip later in august but this time I will have my own waterwolf camera 

 

Hope to have another video to post when the Capt has time to put it together (I didn't take any pictures)

 

I was surprised that it wasn't busier being the holiday weekend  ,,, We had other boats at the dock but getting a shelter wasn't an issue

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.
    • Sacrilege!! Burn him! Burn him! 
    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
    • From the tree I assume, not the stand.  But close for sure!  Nice to have a 10 pointer down (and all the other stuff) by this time of year.
    • Sucks to be you, I guess. You really don't know much about BBQ, do you?  
    • Except your thesis is contradicted by the fact that much BBQ doesn't really have much in the way of "strong spices".   
    • I wouldn't call BBQ pork gourmet. It's just finding enough of the right combinations of strong spices and salt to make the poor, tough cuts tolerable to eat. Kinda like the buffalo wings craze. Wings used to be the throwaway parts of a chicken you had to take to get breast meat. Now per pound they are more expensive than any other part of the chicken.    Not a complaint at all as I am pretty addicted to wings and I live pulled pork as well.  Just an observation./opinion. No harm or hurt feelings intended.
