      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 .

Anybody willing to help?

Hey guys I have been using this site for years. I am an avid walleye fisherman but in the last two years my son and I have tried several times to do a little catfishing. The problem is I really haven't had much luck and being that he is 11yrs old he is getting tired of getting skunked. I thought walleye's were hard to catch. Anyways I was wondering if anyone out there would let me tag along with them one night to pick up a few pointers. I have tried several spots and still can't seem to figure it out. I work early during the week so probably would have to be on a weekend. This may be kind of a weird post but about two years ago I met a guy that was posting on this site looking to fish in someone's boat for walleye, I invited him along and today he is one of my best friends. Thanks!!

I would be more than happy to tkae you and your son out a time or two. Only problem is, my back is out of commission for a bit. When I get back into the river fishing, you are more than welcome to come along for some cat action.

In July , on the 19th, we are have a get together in Carver for the members. There is no cost, food ias bring your own and this could be a good time to learn a few things and also meet many of the better cat people on the forum.

You are more than welcome to come and we sure would like to meet you. There is a post in the catfish forum in regards to this event and if you have any questions, fire away.

I would also be more than willing to take you and your son out for some big cats. I have a bit of experience with taking people out cat fishing. I put on a cat fishing event for a day in the summer for a group out of the cities called Capable partners. It consist of a large group of people who have physical disabilities and some who are able bodied. myself and a small group of friends take the Capable Partners members down to the Minnesota river and fish hard for the day off shore and in boats. Also a few years ago i met a fisherman who was new to the cat game who is now one of my closest friends at seven mile creek by Mankato and he was asking for some catin advise. Now in the past years we have landed many fish in the 30lb to 45lb range. So yes i would make time for when ever you could make it to Mankato to fish.

I would really like to thank both of you for your willingness to help out. Harvey I am going to look into the details of that outing and hopefully the boy and I can make it up for that one. Hope you back gets better soon. Thatcatguy I will take you up on the offer. I will shoot you an email from work on monday and see what your upcoming plans are. Both my son and I are very excited to fish with someone that knows what he is doing. Well he and I are off to the Croix for some walleye action. I will talk to you soon and thanks again to both of you!!!!

    • Well since Del once again can't be bothered to provide supporting evidence to his own arguments I thought I would do it for him, again. If anyone here is really interested in sous vide cooking I would suggest reading this:  http://www.douglasbaldwin.com/sous-vide.html. This is probably about as comprehensive a guide to souse vide as you will find and the first part about food safety is very interesting and explains what Del couldn't. At this point I personally don't think the method is for me but I would keep an open mind and would like to taste some of the food produced by souse vide sometime.(hint) If you like to figure out mathematical equations in order to keep you and your family safe and tenderness is your one and only consideration when cooking a meal then sous vide may be for you. For me I love that smoky grilled flavor I get from cooking over fire or coals. 
    • Who's the one here who argues in favor of the FDA every chance he gets?
    • Good for you! Hard to get them wimmen away from that "put it back on the rack;  it ain't yet black!" mindset....
    • I deep fried a wild turkey yesterday to almost the recommended temp and thought it was way over done and on the verge of being a waste.  My wife thought it was great. I carved the domestic turkey in the roaster before the magic button popped and temp was barely140.  It was fantastic.  My wife was apprehensive but had to agree it was just right. I m slowly getting her off the “It ain’t cooked till it’s brown all the way through”.  
    • Yep, I'll be hunting off an on during the season. Plan on hunting Saturday afternoon.
    • Assuming you are hunting MN, the regs aren't super clear about quartering, but if you read them it sounds like quartering is fine as long as the deer is registered first.  If you don't have cell service to accomplish that before you quarter you need to keep the head attached to one of the quarters.  You could still get it done it might just make for an awkward load on your back.  I would also recommend a good pack for doing this, or your going to kill your back and shoulders.  I run a Mystery Ranch and have had about 90-100lbs in it many times while training and hunting.  That should mean even a big deer would be manageable in two trips for one person.   I hunt some pretty nasty country, so my pack and a couple game bags ride in my truck all season so I'm prepared for anything.  If you go that route consider getting yourself a pair of trekking poles as well.  They don't break the bank and they make a huge difference when you have a heavy load on your back.  As a bonus my MR Cabinet also holds my stand, and climbing sticks really nice when packing that in a long ways.
    • Ayup, sure went quiet fast.   Figgered that.  
    • I certainly hope ya saved me a piece of yer chocolate cake, though....
    • Or you would get this for even bring up another Site, Product or C/List.  (Note from Admin, please read rules before posting again) Old timer that pal.
    • Nah, if they want to ignore science, not do their own research on pasteuization, and blindly follow the government's dumbed down dictum I am not going to worry about it. I presume they eat their burgers well done and their eggs hard anyway.
