      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

New to the Area, looking to meet new people, and do some golfing!!

Recommended Posts

Hello, My family and I moved here at the end of February. We moved here from Pennsylvania, no family or friends. We really love it so far and are trying to make some friends and get used to everything that MN has to offer. We both work at St. joseph's hospital, wife in the ICU and I work in the ER.

I would like to really get out and do some golfing. Wife does not golf and children which are younger are not really into it either. I would like to get some inside info from some local golfers and maybe get to go out and play some rounds if anyone is looking for an extra person. I thought I would try this board to see what happens. Would like to meet some people and make some friends here.

As for my ability, I would say right now that I am rusty, as have not hit a ball since july last year. 2 years ago I was low 80's High 70's on my better days.

Let me know if anyone is up to showing a new resident around any courses.

Thanks in advance

Hey bigbee, I would have no problem playing a few rounds with you but I only get down to the cities a few days a week now so don't play much in the city anymore.

One suggestion I can give you is just show up at a course and try to get on. They will almost always set you up with someone and without fail they have always been good people. Golfers are allot like fisherman mostly all good people willing to except others. One course I would suggest is Columbia. It is right in the city up 65 (central ave.) so it should be real close for you. It is also a fairly nice course and there are always singles and doubles you can hook up with.

Keep you head down!

fishorgolf, thanks for the response. I actually live in White Bear Lake, and I have no problem doing a little traveling, so sometime this season will have to get together for a round or two.

I figured I would have to just go to some courses and try and get paired up with a person or two. I have found out that either fishing or golfing, does not matter the people are usually friendly and you end meeting some nice people. I will have to check out columbia.

Thanks again!

Welcome to Mn. Bigbee13, There are alot of great places to golf and or fish around here. I usually shoot in the high seventies or low eighties...........but if it gets any warmer then that I stay inside:) Right in your area you have Keller, Oneka, Tanners Brook, Chominoix, Oak Glen, Applewood, St. Croix national just to name a few courses all within a 1/2 hour or lees from White Bear. I'm sure there are many more but those are just the public courses that I could come up with off the top of my head.

    • Nice when things fall into place.  Congrates Wanderer! Need a caller give me ring.
    • But there would be more and bigger deer walking around. Probably better age structure too. 
    •   Well although all-out war on Deer for a week with any hunting tool would be interesting.   It would kind of take the romance out of it if your trying to use a Bow or a smoke gun and someone is snipeing your Deer at 200 yards with a rifle! 
    •   Well, first off if you are talking public lands it's tough to restrict how people legally harvest game because it's public.    And you are right,it's hard to compel farmers to give up income that they rely on just so someone can hunt something. My guess is if you are willing to invest your own dollars into your own personal place to hunt you can manage it more to your liking.    It would be good. The other option is to do what other states have done and that is having fewer people own larger tracts of land that they manage privately and you,as a consumer,can pay for the level of hunting you want. Texas has this where you pay based on the size of the deer. I suppose Minnesota could do this as well. Charge hunters per point on public land or something like that.    I think we should just move every season to a one week period around Thanksgiving. Archery,rifle, muzzleloader etc. Out of the rut and everyone on the same even playing field as far as time goes. Reducing the time they are pressured will help the herd.  Nobody should need any longer than that to hunt. Most of my life we only had two days to get our deer.  
    • well the redwing blackbirds are back. making all kinds of noise on the frozen pond today.
    •   Actually, the majority of the state's population does not hunt deer but most do drive cars so generally most people do not want more or larger deer. It's not just the voice of hunters that count.
    •   Can we start keeping fish next year?? Or only if they have 8 points?  
    •   Yeah, one of those little orange dotty things!
