      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 .

I won't bore you with all the details like I have the last couple tourney. I will however provide some information on the top 5 in our FM Group so you'll know who they are (should be) rooting for.

Everyone in the top 5 chose Casey Ashley, so he's a wash. So those outside the top 5 that do not have him can root for him to do poorly. smile

4 of the top 5 have KVD. Fluker (me) is the lone top 5'r with out him, so I'll be rooting hard against him. smile

3 out of the top 5 (Tuna, Larson, Fluker) have Mark Davis.

2 out of the top 5 have Bobby Lane (DomW, Brookings), Mike McClelland (DomW, Fluker) and Derick Remitz (Tuna, Brookings).

The unique picks are as follows and those that the top 5 will be rooting hard for:

DomW - John Crews

Team Tuna - Davy Hite

Brookings - Skeet Reese

jer Larson - Boyd Duckett, Tim Horton

Fluker - Alton Jones, Mike Wurm

Best of luck to all! Sounds like the expectation is a lot of 8-10 lbs weights grouped together. So lots of move (both up and down) each day if what we should see.

Live Leaderboard seems to be stuck for me at 54 guys weighed in. But as of right now, I'm sucking!Davis and Wurm 43 and 47 out of 54 respectively and McClelland at 19th thus far with 12-5. AJ and Ashley need big bags to keep me from crashing down on day 1.

Wurm has 3 top 10's on the lake. I'm just wondering now if all 3 of those came from locking through to Guntersville. That played a big wild card this time. They've always been able to lock through, so you don't know who from the past tournies that did well did it on Wheeler or Guntersville.

CB, don't feel so bad. I'm only beating 1 out of the other 46 guys in the group this tournament. I tried to make a move and do something a little unconventional for me with my picks. And I fell flat on my face. smile Looks like I'll get to play catch up the rest of the year now.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
