      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 .

NY Family Summer Get Together!

Recommended Posts

Well boys...it seems like only a few of us keep in touch in the Open Water Season.

I propose a get together on the Big "O" for a small friendly fishing derby. That is if the rest of you guys can take your SKIRTS off for the day cry

Let's see how many boats we have:

Doug=1

Todd=1

Tuzzy=1

Otis=1

Franky=1

Jimmy=1

That makes room for an easy 10 people and 8 skirts...8 meaning that Todd and I never put our skirts on wink

We shall put the Commisioner (Timmy) in charge of the date, time and launch. Only if you want to and have time!!!

Timmy, I hope your Umpiring is going well...have you had to eject any unrully's. I would love to see you bounce some wiseguy out of the game for kicking dirt on your cleats shocked

Haven't had to eject anyone yet Doug but have warned a couple of guys, no biggy. Saw a situation when a guys team in the playoffs first round only had 9 players and a guy got tossed in the 6th with the lead and they had to forfeit the game. His teammates didn't let him leave the parking lot without a few well placed punches.

Depending on the weekend and scheduels we would come up too. Bring up the boat or jump ship pirate style with someone. For years we were up there almost every weekend through the 90's. Dont get up much now except a few fall trips...

Im sure you could ad Lee to that list also...

Congrats Steve!!!

Steve...why don't you pick a couple of weekends YOU are available and we can work from there. You will be traveling the farthest distance, then DC & Tank 2nd. I think Todd, Otis, Kirkville and I are the most flexible.

Why don't you just come up anyway and a few of us can get together...I want you and Cindy to come up th the restaurant so I can work some magic on your palat.

Give me a call Steve, I would like to get you out on Caz and put you on some Callies. I have a bunch of spots marked that we can get after as many Callies as you can handle cool

Later!!!!!

Skirt??? Well I intended to make a comment about where the skirt would be . . .like a hat, but I refrained. Sounds good to me, just need to know when, as I have a couple of bass tournament schedules I'll be hitting.

Steve, congratulations . . .a little late from me, but thank you for your years of service, sacrifice and loyalty to this country and the uniform you wore. The Corp is lossing some fantastic experience. I salute you Gunnie!

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
