      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 .

Who Believes.....?

OK. So, I just joined a group called TIPSMN: The Investigative Paranormal Society of Minnesota. TIPSMN

Read about some of the stuff they do.

It got me thinking... How many of you believe in ghosts or the paranormal?

Not much paranormal activity on this planet way too much gravity, and not enough ectoplasma friendly magnetic pokets. On my home world on the other hand...

Paranormal, I don't think so. Ghosts, haven't seen one yet. Shadow people, see them all the time (seriously)! If my furniture starts rearranging itself I'll give you a call! grin

I do enjoy listening to Coast To Coast whenever I can but most of it is just pure entertainment. For those of you who are not aware of Coast To Coast it was started by Art Bell who made it the highest rated overnight radio program. They deal with all types of unusual topics from ghosts to UFO's to Cryptozoology and top it off with conspiracy theory's, Remote viewing, and anything else you could possible think of.

I would say it intreegs me. I'm sure there are things that go on that can't be explained. My wife loves Ghost Hunters. I used to, but they never find anything.

I start my drive to work at 3:30 AM and occasionally listen to some of the AM band radio stations. There is one out of Denver that always has some author with a book on paranormal activities, Conspiracy theories, UFO's, Secret societies and gas saving super gadgets. They take callers who claim to have seen/been apart of whatever the subject of the day is. I listen because it is Entertainment. It would take a whole lot of proving to make me a believer.

Have fun with TIPSMN.

We've had 2 different episodes in our house.

The first one was when my now 6 year old was about 8 months old and sleeping in his crib.

There was a little music box on a shelf above his crib, which was given to him by his grandma, but never used.

One night, after we had laid him down and gone to sleep, my wife and I had both heard about 2 notes of a music box, but didn't think anything of it, went back to sleep.

About 10 minutes later, it was longer, and DISTINCTLY louder and my wife and I both sat up in bed. It was loud enough where you would have thought the music box was in the bed, right next to your head.

I got up to check on the kid and I had forgotten to put the side of the crib back up, and he was about ready to fall out.

The second time, actually many times, but I guess I'll just say second "occurence?" is I'm with airjer, I see shadow people in my basement all the time. I've asked my parents numerous times if they know of anyone that's been buried nearby, or indian burial grounds, whatever.

I'm 35 now, and have lived in this house for what will be 30 years at the end of this summer, and yes, my parents have moved out, my wife and I do not live in my parents basement. blush

Anyways, yes, I believe.

I think everyone has seen them at some point but never new what it was. You see something/something moving in your peripheral vision that isn't there when you turn and look. It doesn't have shape but it looks like a shadow and they never seem to be stationary, Its the movement that gets your attention.

One of my most fave things is sitting out on the river at night listening to Coast to Coast while out catfishing. It has spooked me off the river a few nights though while fishing by myself. laugh Sitting out on the river at 3am by yourself in the dark your mind starts to play tricks on you. lol

I have never seen one, but who knows? Always have an open mind, and go with where evidence takes you.

The comment/post about "stop playing with Mrs. BBQs angels...." was good.

A large part of me wants to believe in the supernatural, life after death, crop circles, UFOs, and life on other planets but my mind cannot logically get me there.

PS I am not too eager to find out about life after death. Nyuk, nyuk.

A buddy of mine growing up had a house right accross the street from a funeral home. Apparently someone died in my buddies bedroom. Every morning the closet doors would be open even if you closed them and heard the latch click. His mom has had blankets pulled off the bed, and they've seen this "ghost" a few times. I wouldnt have believed any of it but I heard most of it from his mom! Only happened when the dad was away though. It was actually pretty fun sleeping over (or I should say trying to sleep) over at his place when we were young. But I dont believe in that kind of stuff now.

When I lived in Lees Summit Missouri I thought our duplex we lived in was haunted. We had a touch lamp that continuously turned itself either on or off, and once when I had taken a shower we had a towel hanging next to the mirror and when I was standing there it was like someone had a hold of the corner and was waving it like a flag. No heat/ac on and no windows in there.

BTW- the movie The Sixth Sense, seen it in the theater when it came out and have seen it about a dozen times since. I watched it on Encore last summer- still gets to me.

Ghosts, goblins, spooks, and things that go bump in the night are all things I feel are in someones head. Believe what you will, I'm opting to not believe in these types of things.

I have totally freaked out both my mom and my wife by moving things around and they swear it was angels.

I will say, though, that I believe there is probably some form of life out there somewhere on other planets or stars or on something we don't even know about. It's just a little arrogant to think that we, on this planet, are the only living things in the entire universe.

    •   Duff I think you can make this there and add it to the rental yak!    
    • Didn’t know you could see the clouds of our snowstorm from that far away!    Looks kinda awesome.  Ok, more than kinda. 
    • That’s good news even though I don’t live in that area anymore.  I was always disappointed that they left Coon Rapids.  I thought they were doing good enough business there.   I wonder if the Gander situation helped them decide to go back?
    •   Great! Didn't always want to run over to South St Paul to see what they had.
    • Anyone have a purple martin house? I’m planning on putting one up this spring, but I don’t quite have the open space that is suggested (minimum of 40 ft from tall trees/house). Wondering if anyone has had those same issues, but were still successful in attracting purple martins? The pole I bought is 12 ft high, so I’m thinking of maybe buying a second one, and using a couple of the extensions to make it a few feet higher to compensate for the lack of open space. Have the martins had a noticeable impact on bugs? I’m hoping they can do a number on the horse flies in my neighborhood. Plus, they sound really pretty 
    • Anoka Union paper says it is moving into the sports authority building in Coon Rapids.  
    • While the southern half of the state saw some significant rainfall and even some flooding this week, areas of northern Wisconsin received up to nearly a foot of new snow. Snowmobile trails remain in good to excellent condition in nearly 20 of the most northern tier counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Cross-Country Ski Trail Conditions are also good to excellent across the north.Cross-country ski trails are in excellent condition at Pattison State Park, which received nearly a foot of snow this week. The park is hosting a Winterfest on Saturday.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson A kids fisheree on Lake Noquebay in Marinette County last weekend produced some very nice fish including perch, crappie, bluegill, walleye, northern, and trout. The lake ice was nearly 2 feet thick. There have been good northern pike catches on the back waters of the Wolf River on tip ups baited with a shiner.Whitefish fishing has remained pretty decent up and down the entire Bay of Green Bay. Some anglers are targeting perch too but with moderate to poor success. Whitefish were still being caught off the Oconto breakwater in decent numbers. Toward the end of the week only anglers from Sawyer Harbor had good luck and were able to come in with their limits of whitefish after a half day out on the ice. Anglers fishing the Fox River at Voyageurs park report fishing slowed with a few walleyes and whitefish still being caught. .
    • The Peacock Bass has been on my fishing bucket list since I first saw a picture of one when I was in elementary school. I don't think I'll make it to the Amazon anytime soon so when our Florida vacation was booked I made it a point to get to SE Florida and chase these beautiful specimens! For our adventure we went out near Miami, FL with local guide Captain Scott Rose. He shared a lot of information about this unique fishery and put us on both numbers and quality fish. Our Biggest 5 weighed in at 20.5lbs! This trip was something I won't soon forget.    
    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
