      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

Just look on page 7 of the "breeder services/dogs for sale" form for one of Bryce's past posts.

    • If I leave my 2 lines down when I leave my fishouse and go to my buddies house say 75’ away they are considered unattended and illegal, but what if the lines are on buzzer reels and I use a baby monitor to listen for a bite?
    • Yah, I bet I coulda looked that one up myself, eh? 
    • The Air fryer XL was 120.00 and the Air Fryer Oven was 160.00. If you Google Power Air Fryer or put a .com at the end you should find it. 3 or 4 easy payment of $39.99 depending on model and free shipping.
    • I bought a bag of the hearts and chips because I got sick of the mass of sunflower shells on the ground. Now, it’s only been a couple days, but it sure seems like I have a lot less cardinal activity at my feeders since making the switch. Do cardinals prefer the shelled seeds? 
    • I have a very short driveway (2 car lengths) and I always have 2 cars on it. Couple times a year the city says I cant block the sidewalk. (There is no sidewalk there) But they say thats where it would be if there was one so I cant block it   LOL
    • Ill bump you into 2018. I just picked up a WR250F and put plates on it. Not sure how much riding I will get done now though with the house build.
    •   Just my thoughts on that:   You’ll be glad you poured the edge thicker if you’re planning to stay there awhile.  A good, stable slab will reduce wall cracks and keep your door jambs plumb.     And don’t skimp on the insulation.  My current home is slab on grade with in floor heat.  It has 2 inch insulation under it but not up the side of the slab.  I’ll eventually add that additional inslulation around the perimeter.  The ground is a heat sponge.  Heat migrates to cold no matter what direction it goes.  The insulation will pay for itself in a short amount of time.  The higher the R value, the better.   Good luck. It sounds like an interesting project.
    •   Suzanna, if you had not saw the signs in the ditch on either side of your driveway in the past nor had a snowmobile groomer come through there. It sounds like one of the local snowmobile clubs may have added that stretch of ditch to their trail system. You may inquire around the area which snowmobile club is grooming and maintaining the trails in the area and talk to them. They can talk to their members about driveway jumping but they really can't stop some of the young nonmember folks around there from doing it. Please do not do anything like icing down the ditch, blocking it with things like logs, wire or anything else. If someone gets injured as a result of something you did, you will be liable. 
    •   Im pretty sure we are going to pour the edge thicker but I can not find that it is required. I know we have to insulate down and out from the outside edge but cant find the specifics for that either.   Thanks
    • Still some time to get your entry in!!
