      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 .

How to get even...

Recommended Posts

Okay, we went on a fishing trip last weekend, and I had to leave early and head out of town for work. My brother and buddy stayed with the boat we keep at my house, and then brough tit back and put in garage on Monday. I get home on Weds, and the place stinks... hmmmm... happened before, I knew a minnow or two were left in the livewell...

Ha! I checked and he left the whole stinking batch of them in the livewell minnow bucket with no water! It was a gooey mess.

He will no doubt see this and tell how it was my fault somehow wink but I want to know what I can do to get back smile He keeps the duck boat at his house, so I am thinking maybe leaving a spoonie tucked in it next duck season, or maybe a perch in his truck, or even a frog in his duffle next trip!

Ha! I won't do it, but want everybody to know what a nice brother I have in HugoBox! Nice work you piece of bait!... wink

Good stuff! Sounds like the pranks my buddies and I pull on eachother. One thing I did was offer to be the stringer/livewell man next time you go out together. When he's not looking, casually return all the fish he caught back into the lake! Then when you get back and he asks you where his fish are you can say "OOPS! Guess at least one of us knows how to clean out the livewell/baitwell!"

buy a bag of catfish stink bait. put it under the seat in his truck. once it gets nice and toasty out, it should produce a beautiful stench. I had a sealed bag of it in my trunk and my whole car smelled like feces

One that I need to get even for is as follows. Unscrew the step plate covering the carpet, door jam of his truck. Neatly dump in a bunch of minnows, screw the step plate back on and I guarantee He'll be ready to take it to the scrap yard before he finds out where the smell is coming from.

It took me noticing marks on the screws that hold the step plate on before I found them! YUCK!!

Shiner thats brutal!!!! I have done that with flower and the defroster, but never doe in esturus. Yikes

It may seem brutal, but it was in retaliation for 2 5 gallon buckets worth of smelt "leftovers" that somehow found their way all over my parents deck and porch........I was not amused grin

the worst stink is rotten chicken. put a small chicken ,or a few pieces in a zip lock bag and hide it in the trunk or under the seat.When it starts to rot the gasses build up and pop the bag so all the stink gets disposed of at once.

Stink bait in the radiator vent is nasty stuff. I did that to someone once. I also think rotten potatos are worse than anything else. Throw a couple of those under the seat and wait. They get nice an mushy and really stink. I also screw with people's rain gear. Smear some stink bait on the coller of his rain gear. It is one of those things that you have to wear when it rains, but rarely check on until you need it.

Make him about a dozen xlax brownies. That will give him something stinky to think about.

Then feed half of them to his dog just before he leaves on a 3 day hunting trip.

Now that's funny there. I would think that would be better than deer urin in the truck, that would be horrible. Funny, but horrible. grin

My vote is for the new Gulp ELIVE (in the plastic bucket). Mine leaked, and everything stinks, nothing seems to get it out. Find somewhere good to put it (a little juice goes a long way)

Far be it from me to get in the way of a good practical joke, but just a side note...if you are going to feed ex-lax to a dog, fine (and that is a very good one), but don't put it in anything chocolate...

Rotten salmon eggs under the seat. I had left some in the trunk of the car in my vest in a bottle and forgot I left them there. Noticed an odor, went snooping around and finally opened the trunk OMG it about knocked me over sick . Had to wash the vest 3 times (outside mind you, the wife was guarding the door) before I could sneak up close enough to put it on. And if you are Steelheader and use spawn regularly you know your vest stinks already.

    • Take it to that pawn shop in Las Vegas. They will bring in an expert to tell you it's history,give you a low ball offer once they find out and then you can just walk. 
    • I've always been partial to the fold down couch in the back but I'd want to have storage under it and a fold down bunk above it. One thing to keep in mind is the heater.  I know you said the current heater stays for this season and maybe next but if you're doing work on the layout now you should probably plan for the new heater now even if its not going in for a year or two.  You'd hate to do all this work adjusting the layout only to find out you should have done something differently to accommodate the new heater. 
    • If mine,  I would add those drop down bunks and some pedestal boat seats.  With a smaller house like that I would want as much open area as possible.  I think those big couch/sofas take too much room.  You can always drop the bunk and take a snooze without taking up floor fishing space.  Just some thoughts.......
    • I tried a glass of a buddy's Templeton Rye last night and was impressed. I'm not big of Rye's but this one was very smooth. I can't say I'd ever buy a bottle but someone else's booze is always up near the top of the list of my favorites. I still prefer the $15 Trader Joe's bourbon though. 
    • I didn't figure anyone at cabelas would be any help. I have scoured the gun and haven't ever been able to find any markings of any kind. I forgot to mention in the previous post that it's a 16 gauge.  If nothing else, it'll look cool hanging over my basement bar. 
    • Ha I remember showing ya a thing or 2!!! Not sure where your son got his fishin prowess from though! Yea well!! oh I changed my poopy pants!
    • I can't see the pics?
    • You might be better off trying to do some research on your own on the old shotgun. I think it would be a waste of time taking it to Cabela's since most of the folks  who work there now think  any gun made before 1970 is an antique. The gun surely is made in Europe and might have originated in one of the English or Belgian or even German "guild" shops, little outfits that cranked out inexpensive guns that did not even bear maker's names since they were made by a "bunch" of guys. Your best bet would be to trace or photograph the proof marks and go from there.  That is,  I'm assuming it has proof marks :).
    • For an exciting adventure in shooting grab an old "trapdoor" Springfield and rattle off a few rounds of 45-70 or 45-90.  If you're of skinny build and little weight it'll give you a THUMP you'll remember!   Perfect deer cartridge for MN though since that big ol' bullet will go churning through the brush like a D-8 Cat until it hit's it's target. Have been around the old '94 30-30 since way back when and while it is handy it is not that accurate and lacks the knock-down power of many, many of today's rounds. But if you just have to have one as I always say, it''s your money. Keep in mind you can buy the .35 Remington in a pump action,   which a lot of MN duck hunters find easy to use come deer season.
    • I have an old Damascus barreled shotgun that was passed on to me by my grandpa. The story I have always heard and been told is that it was brought over from Denmark by my great grandfather in 1915. It has no markings indicating where it was made or anything else that I could use to figure out some history on the gun. It is a pin fire and has a stag carved into the underside of the stock. Anyone have any ideas on where I could find any info on this? I had thought about bringing it to Cabelas and see if they knew anything about it. I'm not concerned about the value. I'd just like to know a little more about it or even get pointed in the right direction.
