      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 will be camping in the BWCA with 2 kids during the end of July. i need of tent for 6 for this kind of camping. I need the kids to stay dry, so a good quality tent is crucial. any recommendations?

If you are looking to have the tent last for many years, and do not want to break the bank, I would recommend a Eureka tent, they have several models in that size. Check out campmor on the internet for price/style/specs/info.

I'll second the plug for Eureka tents.

I have a 4 man that is about 17 years old. My parents had it before I did, and it was still keeping me dry last summer.

This tent has survived several rain soaked Apple River trips, and my tent was often the only dry one in camp.

Stay away from the cheaper department store tents. Also, a tent may say sleeps six, but in reality there just might be room for four. I use a Eureka 4 man for the Mrs. and I, and a Eureka 2 man for solo trips. Eureka tents are the best bang for your buck.

This months Field and Stream had a couple of nice tents and one was a 6 man. I gave the mag away so cannot remember the names/models.

I would second that caution regarding the big box store tents, if this is a one time thing or that is all you can afford, they will work, but the quality is not there to be storm proof and durable.

I have a Kelty that I like. Light, quick and durable. Something to consider, for packability and not keeping all your eggs in one basket so to speak, is a pair of smaller tents rather than one big one.

Here's one more vote for Eureka. If you visit their HSOforum you can get some of their stuff at clearance prices ... some is overstock other is factory seconds. I bought a $600 list price tent for about $220 ... same thing goes for about $399 - $499 in discount sporting good stores. Great deals on great stuff ...

If you're looking for a one time fix, consider calling a BWCA outfitter and just rent a 6-man for your trip. The cost is fairly reasonable and they usually carry light and durable brands. Just a thought...

* Did you post this Q in the BWCA section too? - nevermind. Just saw your post. smile.gif

    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
