      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 .

Shannon Kehl

I regularly read the Bismarck Tribune online to keep up with what's happening back home and was surprised to see this today.

Pro walleye angler mourned

By Richard Hinton

Professional walleye angler Shannon Kehl was remembered as a great competitor, good friend and one of the best fishermen to come out of the Bismarck area Monday.

Kehl, 39, of Menoken, was killed in a one-vehicle accident early Sunday morning just west of Menoken.

"The thing I remember is that he always was in a good mood. He was always happy when he was fishing. He loved to fish, whether it was a big tournament, the Governor’s Cup or fishing with his buddies," said Sheldon Meidinger, a fellow pro angler who hails from Bismarck. "He had a competitive spirit and was one of the best fishermen to come out of Bismarck."

With the Professional Walleye Trail holding a tournament at Bull Shoals, Ark., this week, many touring pros already were in Arkansas.

"We found out yesterday morning. We’ve all been shocked and stunned. It’s a really sad deal," said pro fisherman Ron Seelhoff, of Burlington, Colo., who is pre-fishing at Bull Shoals. “I’ve stayed at his house. He’s a good friend, and I’m going to miss him.”

Services are tentatively scheduled for 2 p.m. Friday at McCabe Methodist Church with the Rev. Art Scanson officiating.

Seelhoff and Mina, S.D., angler Rick Olson were among Kehl’s closest friends on the professional walleye tours, Seelhoff said. “We’ve been friends since ’94 or ’95.” he said. They also traveled to tournaments together and roomed together.

Olson’s first reaction when the heard the news was disbelief.

"You know that kind of stuff is going to happen, but you don’t think it’s going to," Olson said from Bull Shoals, where he is pre-fishing ahead of the tournament. “He was truly a good guy. One of the things I liked about him was that he told you what was on his mind.”

Kehl got off to a hot start on the Professional Walleye Trail tour, finishing with PWT Rookie of the Year and Angler of the Year honors in 1996. He finished in 27th place in Bismarck’s latest PWT Championship, held in 2006.

"When you have a small fraternity of people like we do in the pro fishing ranks, it’s sad to lose one of the members, one of the friends, one of the fellow competitors, especially a guy like Shannon. He’s the only pro to win PWT rookie and angler of the year in one season, a feat that may stand forever," said PWT executive director Jim Kalkofen, who also is in Bull Shoals.

Kehl wasn’t scheduled to compete in Bull Shoals tournament that starts Wednesday. “It was a subdued crowd yesterday once we found out,” Kalkofen added.

Kehl also fishes the FLW Walleye Tour, where his best year was 2005 when his earnings exceeded $60,000.

The accident happened about 3 a.m. Sunday, the state Highway Patrol reported. Kehl’s pickup went off the road and struck an approach, then vaulted and struck an approach and culvert, the patrol said in a statement.

The vehicle came to rest on the driver’s side with Kehl, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, partially thrown. He was pronounced dead at the scene, the patrol reported. The accident was reported by a BNSF Railways crew about 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

"He left me a phone call Saturday night. I don’t know what he wanted. I miss him. It’s a tough deal, and it makes you realize how short life is," said Seelhoff.

    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
    • It was about time something like this happen to a MN team. I will take the luck and the win. This game was not the big game. I've seen us win and lose many divisional games. I have never seen us win an NFC Chip game 76" I was too young for that to count. This weekend i might get all giddy and happy if we win but I sure don't want the let downs anymore     Go the SB win or lose I will be happy to see it at least once
    • I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against.    It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.
