      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 .

Did I really see some "trashtalkin" already? Cool!! Let the fun begin.

I see we have a new "Basshead" joining a team this year. You don't really think you have a chance in a Multi-Tournie, do ya? I know some rules have been changed to help you out a little but come on. grin.gif

Seriously, I am lookin forward to fishing the statewide events bigtime. I had an awesome time at the event at Cass last year. I hope there will still be the night before gatherings like there was after day 1 last year. I thought it was great to be able to sit down and just talk with some of the guys I didn't know very well.

If your looking for a place to get your feet wet in some tournie fishing, this is the place. Very laid back, having fun really takes priority over compitition, use your strengths to plan your approach for getting on the different species thoughout the day.

Them bass guys are a different breed grin.gifwink.gif

The LETS is a lot of fun, no doubt about it. A laid back, yet semi-competitive tournament for anglers of all levels. The multi-specie format is awesome and the chance to bring in a nice mixed bag is part of the reason why the tournament is so exciting.

See everyone on the water! (Or before... smile.gif)

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

"Them bass guys" Matt? What's that in your hand in your avatar!?! grin.gif

LETS is a great time indeed. Fishing with the league has taught me endless information how to target just about any species of fish! Can't wait to fish some new waters.

We have been working hard trying to find a general camping/lodging spot for the Whitefish event. It's been a bit more difficult than expected. More information will follow on this as we work out the details.

There is a campground in Cross Lake that is operated by the Corp of Engineers I believe, more information and reservations can be made at reserveusa.com

Personally I don't wish to headquarter here for several reasons.

I have to agree. The talk’n after a day of fishing was probably just as much fun as the event itself. For me it was a good way to meet a lot of people that I did not know.

Chuck,

I never said I wasn't part of that "different breed" ... I'm just not the same level grin.gif

And by the way, that's not a bass in my avatar, it's just a really big crappie with interesting colors and an abnormally huge mouth that I caught on a buzzbait grin.gifwink.gif

Good Fishin,

Matt Johnson

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
