      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 .

KOTC get together-Offical thread.

Recommended Posts

Date-Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Location- Carver landing on the east end of town by the park.

Time- 2pm or whenever one wants to arrive.

I will be bringing some door prizes for this event and Thanks goes out to DTRO for the help also.

We can set a time of 5pm to all meet at the public landing for a meal. If a few of us bring some wood and a grill, that should be enough for a bon fire and also supper. This will be a bring your own food and drink event.

Please post below if you can bring a grill or wood. I will have a few prizes for maybe the most unique catch and something else.

I hope this works for all and it will be a good time to meet fellow FMers and just maybe learn a secret or two from them.

For those that don't have a boat, one could fish from shore or I'm sure there will be others with boats with room for 1 or 2 others. Please post if you have room for others or if you need a ride so we can get everyone out fishing.

I hope to see all of you there. This event is for everyone

looking for some bait or tackle for this event, check out Moore's bait & tackle for those needs. Bob will be sure to see that you are well equipped for catfishing.

Count myself and Andy a fellow catfisherman in....I'll bring a bunch of Hy-Vee brats and a couple cases of soda for people. Neither of us have a boat so we were looking for an open spot otherwise we have no problem shore fishing since that's what we already do. Can't wait to meet some fellow FM'ers and learn a thing or two....

I can also bring a grill.

Ah, the Dtro grill! The food that thing has seen!

I have not gotten one yet, but it is on my list and I want to make a custom mount on the front of my boat for it grin

I have a great table that I could bring. It has been at a couple FM events now and served a great purpose.

Hope to see everyone!

Maybe we could get the elusive master of everything that goes on here, D30 to make appearance. I would make the trip, just to shake his hand cool. I heard he has not been out much this year.

you can put me down for bring a grill and a couple of tables and of course food. I also might have papasoco with and two other buddies that are very into catfishing. Papasoco and myself both have boats so we might be able to fit a person into each. Anything else that is needed just let me know and if I have it it will be brought.

I'll be there with Aceinthehole. How many do you guys fish out of a boat? I can fit three in mine usually for eyes or whatever. I have a small grill I can bring.

I'll gladly provide the entertainment. Missed hook sets, falling down, skeeter swappin, etc.

All I need is a few catfishing pointers.

I'm right there with you BG. This will be my first time for this type of fishing. I've caught channels, but never really fished hard for them. Should be a good time. Looking forward to meeting you.

you won't really have your hands full, you'll just be asking if that's stink bait, or muc.

    • You are 100% correct... a guy has to be smart about it. There is nothing magic about inverters... its takes a lot of DC juice to make a little AC juice. On the flipside though, I have a 120vac 32" TV/DVD player that only draws 51 watts AC.... meaning that it should (hypothetically) only draw 4.25 amps DC. Even with a 15% draw added for the inefficiency of the inverter, I am still under 5 amp. Usually I will run the generator for a few hours between 10 am and 2 pm. Then it is off until 7 pm or so... Then I will fill it up and let it run through out the night. It will run about 9 hrs on eco, so by 4 am or so it is out of gas... but the batteries are topped off nice to run the routine again. The 4 hr run isn't necessary, but does offer some security. With a 5 and a 7 yr old fishing with me the majority of the time, the TV usually doesn't turn off during the day.
    • I believe the crawlers are not natural forage and using them as bait emulates large larvae.  
    • Like I stated earlier and others with more knowledge than anyone on here have as well..we should have waited...I also was unaware of the no trade clause which he was able to get without any less $$...pure stupidity...we'll know in 8/9 months how this pans out...it boot straps us from further improving the team with younger talent is my main issue. As far as a captain, lifelong wild...blah blah blah....if he is such a pillar, such a great player, such a leader of the team...where has he taken us? The playoff record speaks for itself....time to dump guys like Koivu at the soonest opportunity who have done all they can or at least decrease their pay in later years not increase them...they took us as far as they could...and we've already got vets like Parise, Suter, Spurgeon, Granlund, Coyle, Brodin locked in on long term deals; give one of them the C to carry us forward.  
    • Where ya going? Numbers are pretty bad this year... I would suggest looking at Edmunds or Faulk county if you haven't already locked in somewhere.
    • This is my first time hunting bear. Have two coming to the bait, both after dark, and the small one shows up at odd times in the early A.M. I was thinking a honey burn might tempt one or the other to come in during shooting time. The big guy comes in after the little one at night, but he hangs around for an hour. The smaller one comes back multiple time during the night. I have tried to come in before shooting time, but I have bumped him twice now.  
    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
