      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 .

Happy Mother's Day!

Recommended Posts

I'd just like to say a warm Happy Mother's Day to all the moms on our site. I am also a proud mother of a 14 year old who is the joy of my life (I'm feeling so sappy right now-please bear with me! blush ). My mother really didn't enjoy fishing but she instilled in me the love of the outdoors and how important it is to be active. She gave me the love of camping, smores and silly songs around the campfire. smile I'll be heading up to my hometown and visiting with my mom, 3 sisters and nieces. What does everyone else have planned?

I am not a Mom (except to my hubby and animules) and I lost my own Mom in 1995 so no big celebrations. I just got home from the craft show in Brainerd (which was dismal)and I think I am going to sleep all day tomorrow. I got up at 4am and got back home at 8:30 so I am tired. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ sleep

I am a mom to 3 daughters. We are heading to church, than to my in-laws for "a little lunch". My mother-in-law lives in a nursing home in a nearby town, but comes home every sunday for church. It is tradition to spend a little time with them on sunday's. We are brining my laptop to show grandma the 800 pictures two of my daughters took on their trip to Washington DC a couple of weeks ago. After that, we have to deliver a trailer to Mankato (2 hour drive). We may sneak up to my mom's in the Cities and surprise her with a bouquet of flowers.

I woke up at 7 this morning and I can hardly move, looks like I better start working out with weights. I think I am going to hang up this craft show thing after this year, I am getting to old for this. I would rather be fishing..............Have a Happy Mother's Day.

PS we came up with a brilliant idea yesterday, lobby the politicians to swap Mother's Day with Father Day. Then the Minnesota fishing opener would be perfect!

Happy Mothers day to all. No fishing today as I feel the only way to spend the day is with the women in my life. My mother,wife and daughter in law. My wife told me to go fishing today, boy, she is a gem. There is plenty of time this summer to go fishing.

We are all getting together today and are going to do a little grilling for supper.

Again, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY.

Happy mothers day to all the mommys out there.

Here's to hoping your kids don't put you through what I put my mom through. I'm surprised she's still normal and not in some sort of therapy.

Whatta woman!!!

    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • Tip ups outside the house are fine because you can visually see them which means you are attending to those lines.  A line left down in your house while you go to a buddies house can't be seen. If you can't see them you can't attend to them when needed.  A CO also has no idea how long you were gone, were the lines unattended for 5 minutes or 5 hours?   If you have some sort of system set up so that you can monitor the lines remotely then you've entered a gray area and would probably be up to the CO's discretion.  You can email the DNR and ask but I'm guessing whether you get a ticket or not would be determined by which CO finds you and what kind of mood he's in that day.  If you did choose to take the ticket to court I'd think you'd have a reasonable case to present.  The judge would have to determine if being able to monitor your lines on a baby monitor satisfies the law. Personally I think it would but who knows what a judge or CO would think. 
    • Sounds like event was well attended all 3 days just over 28k total.   we went on Friday and had a great time participating in the bird dog parade. Scored some deals on some dog stuff and even got some nice freebies.   hope it makes it back to SD again. Next year is in Schaumburg Illinois so probably won’t attend. 
    • Battled the winds yesterday but fishing was excellent. Couldn’t find the big perch but managed to get a limit of eyes here in South Dakota
