      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 .

Random Hobbies?

Recommended Posts

Besides fishing and hunting, what other random hobbies do you have?

I'm really getting into gardening now and I like grilling with a ice cold brew.

I would go with parenting, though not a hobbie and I put that up front of anything, but spending time with my little Monkey on Acid is the best. Other than fishing and hunting I like to work with wood, try to build things, computers, guitar hero and a few other things.

Well I hunt and fish first and foremost. Then I garden in the summer, and brew beer year-round. Throw in some girls and that's pretty much my life smile

(edit: have any of you started dating women in the "offseason" of fishing, then encountered problems once open water rolls around? because i sure have, lol)

I am a conservative, even though most of the people i tend to meet in my "outside of the outdoor" activities are liberals, i still think many of "their" sports and activities are "hella" fun... (maybe i'm a glutton for punishment)

When it comes to "most" of my political opinions, I am conservative, because it doesn't take half a brain to realize that most of the liberal ideas are just plain goofy.

...But there are some things I wouldn't mind changing in our "law" system.

I'm not a puritan, i just try and see through the media's bull.

I guess if you are concerned about labeling me, then lable me independently conservative.

PS>... i forgot that I absolutly LOVE budweiser, and Schlitz is making one heck of a comeback!!!

Well lately and the nights have been pretty late too, I am playing Call of Duty 4. Can't seem to get enough of it. My son just bought a PS3 too, so we play online together which is real fun except he is way better than me and it seems like I have come to a standstill in my abilities, not sure if I will ever get better. Other than that, love Texas Holdem and my puppy Copper!

Oh yea! My least favorite is everytime my daughter calls from Eau Claire where she goes to college, because I know it is a money call! Believe me it truly is too!!!

Other than fishing, hunting, and parenting activities, I enjoy running and general fitness activities, coaching baseball, and playing guitar (I am self taught and absolutely brutal - in a not so good way). I hate to admit it, but the older I get the more time my job eats up.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
