      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 .

Cattin' tonight

Recommended Posts

Well who's all headin' out and braving the weather that they are predicting? I would love to make it out, but I don't think that's going to happen. At this point I can't find anyone to head out with from town here. I really wanted to get one last trip in before I have to give up cats for a week while I am on vacation. Sooooo if anyone is heading out who happens to have an open seat, I would love to jump in, I'll gladly help pay for gas, bait, etc... I have plenty of bait to use as well. Just give me a shout either here or at my email andy at adamsonmotors dot com

I will be out tonight as long as it is not pouring rain when I am ready to leave. I dont mind fishing in the rain. But once trees start flying by me, I am out of there wink , or when it looks daylight out at 1130 pm because it is lightning out, I am out of there!

I've decided that when I completely sleep through my alarm that is designed to wake me, I need to slow down a bit.

Boat will stay in the garage tonight.....

I don't disagree and it will kill me to stay home.

It will also kill me to not have a job wink

I was called into work last night after we got off the water. Didn't get home till 3.

Was supposed to be a meeting this morning at 7............I didn't quite make it.

Daughter came in to my room at 7 and said "you're alarm is too loud, it woke me up." (she sleeps downstairs and on the other side of the house)......It had been going off for 30 minutes....but I never heard it.

Hanson and I sat out some of those same things, and we had a good night, same for him the night before, so I guess I don't know for sure what to think.

I'm pretty fearless myself, but would not want to be on the river right now. The lightning is coming straight down, last one rattled the drinking glasses in the sink.

    • Sounds like someone's talking to much! Lol
    • I'd try those!!  don't save any for Glenn!!!
    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
    • My son and I got 9. Should have had our limit. Lot of teal zipping around! Lot of mosquitos too!!
