      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 .

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.

    • Just trying to get some opinions on how to do this. I bought a 60sqft mat from (HeatTech) is the brand name same as all the others from what I have read online. My question is prep and installation. I am building a  new home this is going to be located in the master bathroom which is OSB flooring (Blank Slate to start with).  I have read I could put this right onto the OSB and then trowel (3/8" plastic) over to tile my flooring. OR i could do a self lever concrete over the mat to make install of tile a little easier?  I am installing the 1"x1" Hexagon tiles which are in a 1'x1' mat.  Or how would you go about this? My father in-law thinks I should lay tar paper down then heating mat with a self leveler over that.  Just want install to go easy and not spend a ton. Thought? Advise?
    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more.
