      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 .

Chocolate Lab Pup

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have names of a good local breeder? I'm sure some of u are way more knowledgeable in this field then me. I am willing to wait until spring. I just put my beagle of 12 years down last January and thought I could go with out another dog , but! guess what. The reason for a chocolate is I have had a great Black and a very good yellow so it's time for the tri-fecta.

I don't know what his status is with breeding right now, but Bryce, a regular here at FM, has had some awful nice dogs in the past. I have a black from him that has worked out well for me. He has a 3 year old chocolate female now that I think has done one litter. I'm waiting for him to think about another litter.

Which reminds me, Bryce, I need your email address. Shoot me an email at bornofice at yahoo dot com.

Thanks Ray. Hope Diamond is doing well. You can still contact us through our HSOforum. Would love to see her and her mom together. No litters out of Jezebel yet as she is still running. We are hoping for spring and have a really good looking stud that we are in the process of researching. Get ready for sticker shock. These pups are going to be around the $1000 mark.

I would if I could, but got to play by the rules here until I actually pay to advertise said future litter. There is enough info already listed to find us if you are creative on google. This dog is a firecracker. Stayed an extra(fifth) day in SoDak after hunting with Labs to see if I could wear her out. She won and she was only 4 months old. When you find our site, you will see from the photos that we stive for looks as much as we strive for ability. Dark coat, dark eyes and classic shaped lab head. No pale eyed, tiny eared needle beaks here. Good luck with your search.

Macho,

A great site to look for some great Chocolate breedings would also be Brown Dog Mafia. Just look them up they are just a site dedicated to us "Brown Dog" Lovers. smile

Will try to post some pics this weekend. 15 hour days give me just enough time to skim through the site. Ray and Labs know the site rules better than I do. Maybe they will send out some hints to help you out. wink

    • First time we have had this one in the yard if that's what it is. Not marked off in my book. 
    • Probably a bad board that was discontinued the month you bought the TV and no replacements are available because a million other people had the same problem.  I have had 2 Samsung plasma screen televisions go out in similar matter.  Fortunately i had a replacement warranty from Best Buy that replaced the first one and when the second one went out within a year they refunded my money and i went LG.  I believe it was a power supply board that was the issue with mine.  MY brother in law had the same TV and the video board went out in his but luckily i was able to swap the video board out of my defective television and his is still working.  Keep in mind this is when a 42"-50" television was $2,000 so a guy can understand the frustration when you only got 16 months out of it.
    • If you find a deal use whatever you saved to buy/make an extended run tank.  Things are worth their weight in gold.  Nothing better than ripping the starter cord once and never having to worry about it the rest of the weekend.  Delchcchi made a good point as well about having a place locally who is able to do warranty work.  Honda's notoriously are well built and I've never had a problem with mine but you never know. 
    • To this day, even though i had grand parents fight in it, i pretty much have no idea what the Korean war was really about.  All i know is that it was to stop communism from spreading.   I have the utmost respect for the people that fought for this country and from what i have seen of the Vietnam series I cannot imagine what that hell must have been like for both sides.  I believe a big part of the decay of patriotism in the US lately is due to the fact that a majority of Americans in my age group, including myself (born in '78), have not served in the military .  In the 50's and 60's young men were drafted into the war just like their fathers, uncles, and grandfathers were before them.  I am pretty sure if we would have a  law that made it mandatory to serve at least a year or two in the armed forces the viewpoints would be a lot different concerning the recent protests.    
    • I'm sure you've never disrespected an American flag in any way, right?    
    • I'm sorry for the insinuation, your slave days are over, just the residual patterns and brain grooves remain from years of conditioned thought exist. I hope you're working on smoothing those grooves out so you can learn again. Treadmill=Bad
    • Another option is once the TV goes blank, plug into a DVD player to the same HDMI port and see if the DVD shows video.  If no then its definitely the TV.  Possibly a cap on the video board.
    • I would say that it is pretty typical that Social Studies and History classes in High School are often a decade or two behind.   It takes time for the teacher colleges and textbooks and curricula to get updated and approved and incorporated.    Also giving things a good while to cool down is safer as well.  I don't recall my kids getting taught about Vietnam, and that was a decade or so after it was over.   I wonder if kids in high school today are getting taught anything about 9/11 and Kuwait and Iraq and war on terror and all that?   And if so, what they are being taught?

    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Water temps are hovering in the low 60’s despite the very fall like weather we are experiencing. 

      The scenic Canadian shore lines are coming to life with various critters. Otter, bear and more making preparations for the coming winter.

      Walleye fishing in Canada is excellent with a jig and minnow or shiner. The most productive environment has been gaps at 15-18’ with plenty of current present. Good numbers of perch are being caught off deep edges or reefs at 30’ or more. Crappies are a little more difficult this week, the best chances are on a light set up.

      Around Minnesota, walleyes can still be had with a crankbait but favored methods are switching over to a jig tipped with a shiner on main lake points between 20 and 24’. 

      Muskies are moving deeper with anglers transitioning from casting to trolling. There is still time to boat a big fall fish!

      We hope to see you soon!
