      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 .

Short-timer calendar...

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I am currently using the Playboy calendar on my wall as my short-timers calendar, so thought it might be fun to post one online also. For those of you that don't know what a short-timer calendar is, its a count down until we are on that big freedom bird back to the United States. Now, I can't do an exact count down and give out our exact departure or arrival date due to OPSEC (Operational Security), so the exact count down maybe off by a up to several days..

I will try to post to this everyday, up until the day I leave. if I miss a day for some reason, I will post the next and I will defenatly post once I am home!

It looks like you've been making sure you're well equipped for when you return based on some of your other posts. Hopefully the time flies for the remainder and you can get to fishing! A guy at work is also in Kosovo, and I believe he's scheduled to return around the same time. He picked up a new boat on one of his leaves, so I'm sure he's itching to get it out.

Oh, you are right about that. hsolist has been way to addictive to me lately... Its all good though, I am itching to get out fishing. The first full day I am home I plan on hoping in my car and hittin up the trout streams all day long. I plan on pulling a 5am - 8 pm fishing day.

It will be nice when you you can change your avatar to a great big rainbow trout that you caught on your first fishing trip. Thanks for serving our country and making freedom a choice for others. It has been a few (25 since I got out) so I don't remember all the short timer sayings but the one I do remember is "I am so short I could play handball on the curb". One of the best moments when I was out processing out of Fort Dix and they said we could pack our uniform and wear our civilian cloths for the last 2 days I really felt like I was going home after being station in Germany for almost 3 years.

I will do that.. I got three months of paid leave to use up when I get home, so i figure that leave me enough time to catch some nice fish.....

If it doesn't, it gives me three months to figure out a really good fishing lie!

That's funny stuff right there.

Heck, we can come up with some whopper sized lies after a day in the boat. Plus, I know a guy who can photoshop a mountian out of a molehill. So, if we don't catch anything we can take picturs of the minnows and turn them into whales.

Hey, you deserve three months to do what you want when you get home. You will find folks to take you out. Like I said before, you are always welcome in my boat.

    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
    • They are starting to groom from Finland north on the NSST ,,, We could use more then the dustings of snow we have been getting lately to get the southern part of the trail set up
