      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 .

Catting report for Wednesday

Recommended Posts

I was wonder if anybody has any open seat this Wed. night to do some catting. Harveys out with a sore back (Hope you feel better soon) and I would still like to make it out for my first river outing in a boat this year. I have all my own gear so I'm good to go.

I am going out tonight to get bait, hopefully I have better luck at that then I do fishing. I think from 630 to about 1030-11 depending on the bite!

Just bring what you need, poles, tackle, snacks and drinks of your choice.

Any time you can be on the river is better than thinking about it during the winter. Fish or no fish but then again I kinda got all my fish out of the way the first 4 nights out this spring. Now I can sit back and just enjoy the rest of the season.

The grill has been gettin a work out this spring

This full moon tonight should look unusually huge due to the summer solstice right around the corner.

You could use the old Papagrump method to catch fish.

He did ceremonial dousing of the reel with some "soldier", made a few chants, and then several calculated hand movements up and down the rod.

I'll be darned if he didn't catch a fish right after that.

If anyone goes out with him in the near future, don't be surprised to see a rubber chicken, candles, bullhead blood, and perhaps an 8x10 of Dark30 grin

    • I'm not saying I'd plug it in on November 1st and leave it for the year. I'm mainly talking when we start getting into the lows around zero or below. The main reason I asked this was because my father in law stated that it wasn't a good idea to be leaving it plugged in and that the block heaters weren't designed to be left plugged in for more than overnight. It was much nicer last year with the quicker warm ups to load the kids up and take off.    As as far as the global climate change, would it be better to have it plugged in and let it warm up for a couple minutes or hit the auto start and let it idle for 20 minutes?  If I ever get caught up on the honey do's and get my stall in the garage cleaned out I can just park inside. May have to push the junk to the wife's side. That may move the cleaning up on the list. 
    • And there isn't free maribou in my back yard... gotta get the vise out and wax up the thread.....
    • It contributes to global climate change due to electricity from coal usage.  Other than that I can't think of anything that keeping the engine warm would harm.   On the other hand, it is sort of wasteful.   Put it on a timer or go plug it in when you will be using it.   That's my take on it.
    • I think I answered my own question. Looks like I need a cable box from Mediacom to operate this particular TV. 
    • Just found online while doing more researching that this TV does not have a QAM tuner. Does anyone know if this could be the issue?
    • We the People 1911   I am thinking this will be my next gun.
    • I have a question for all of you AV wizards out there. In my house I have 4 or 5  flat screen TV's connected directly to Mediacon cable. No cable box. The only problem to this is my channels are digital channels so Fox 9 is actually on 9.9 and ESPN is on 66.5, etc.  I just recently acquired an older flat screen tv for my garage from a friend who didn't want it anymore. It is about 10 years old.  When I hook it up to cable and try to run the auto programming feature it doesn't find anything.  Could that TV just be too old to do what I am asking? I can get a cable box from Mediacom but I'm trying to avoid that. Any ideas?
    • I understand that the block heater doesn't warm the truck. It does warm the block which in turn heats the antifreeze which circulates through the heater core. The quicker the antifreeze heats up, the quicker the heater in the cab is blowing warm air. I am simply trying to cut down on idling time in the driveway. During the week the only time it's driven is quick trips when the wife is not home. Her vehicle is what's driven most of the time.  My my main concern was leaving the pickup plugged in all the time and causing some other sort of issues with the engine. 
    • How hard has he been running this 400 HP rig? Might be as simple as a plug wire or might require a compression test.
