      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 .

Hey Greg, hope all is going well in the U.P.

Gus called me last week and said He had my son's 2 lb 1 oz

one done. I have 3 more up there. I told him I could wait until they were all ready. It sounded like he has quite the backlog but because the fishing business is slow he has had more time for the mounts. I've got the pictures on my bulletin board and everytime I see them the "fever" kicks in.

Take care!

Doing good TO, haven't talked to Gus lately I have been mostly fishing the Bay in Ashland. I would recommend sending Gus and email to see where he is at on the mounts. I am sure his lovely wife Nettie will reply asap... How has the fishing been for you? Looks like you got a good one in your Aviator. I am getting ready to book my LOW trip for mid Jan, not sure where I am going yet but I have it narrowed down to a few places. I am also going to Bay De Noc for First Ice, can't wait.

Gus called me today. The 4 me and my son left up there for him to mount are ready. He is going to ship them. I can't wait to see how they turned out.

He must be doing the biggest ones first. gringrin

Just had a nice talk with Gus. He sure is a great guy. When I told we'd be back in '09, he got pretty darn excited. The mounts are just about ready but he said all the smallmouth keep getting in the way (i.e. out of freezer room). I guess a 6# bass takes up a little more room than a 2# perch.

I best get some cash on the way up there or he will sell mine quicker than snott.

T.O. I think the return trips will be better than the first cool

Last year I think Otter came up with the idea so get some FM'ers for a Perch Assault in Late Feb early March of 09. I think it would be a blast, I am sure we can fill up Gus's Hotel really quick.

I'm in!

The 4 we left for Gus to mount came today.

Wow are they beautiful. You will not be disapointed when your's show up. It really got my blood pumping when I opened the box. Seems like it was just yesterday when those pigs were coming up thru the hole.

I will try to get some pics.

We are up on Lake Winni for the week trying to add a few more memories. So far it has been great.

I will get some pics when we get back.

You know he sold his baiting supplies. He is strictly running a taxidermy/guide shop. I personally think it was a big mistake because he has to be there anyway to drum up business, but who am I to say.

I promise you he is a straight shooter, he is not going to rip you off, might be a little slow and [PoorWordUsage] you a bit but you will get your mounts. I don't see him alot in the summer but if I run into him I will ask what is going on.

    • Here are a few pictures of the little peanut aka TazMania.    I got waaay behind on introducing him to birds and with work and the weather it was a slow start but once I finally got him on birds he really took off. He has an incredible nose and he is close working which for me and my family a$$ is a benefit. I was worried about going away from Springer's but  I am not disappointed and love the cocker. 
    • Diced spam fried up then add the eggs and scramble up is a fish house morning favorite for us.
    • First batch done, hopefully these will pair well with a cold beverage and football! Skol!    Last weekends football fare, beef burnt ends, lasted about 15 min with my neighbors. I'm going to try it with pork shoulders this weekend. I'll grill up the chunks during pregame tomorrow. Skol!
    •     Yah, then wash it down with a High Life
    • That's a cute little carpet muncher. 
    • There is no reason to get on the roof! For the ice and snow get a roof rake, keep problem areas free of both. For leaves and pine needles get gutter helmet. But stay off roof! One fall could change more then a stinky house.
    • I would be perfectly fine with that. Heck, it's no different from not even winning your conference and getting in the final 4 only to have the refs miss obvious holding penalties so you can have a winning TD pass. I'll take that any day
    • Only missing the toast, hot sauce and ketchup! Good stuff Manerd!
    • If you eat fried spam on wonder bread with velveeta cheese........ You might be a redneck.   
    • I was just looking at the chamber type vacuum baggers, and in the comments it was pointed out that the bags for the more expensive chamber sealers are much cheaper than for the "foodsaver" type sealers.   So if you do a lot of vacuum bagging, the chamber type might be worth considering.
