      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 .

Al's breakfast! If I remeber right its in dinky town.

Like I mentioned in the other post the nook is good!

Its Dari-ette, which is next on my list!

I haven't made it to physcho suzi's yet either!

There is a drive-in in brooklyn park or center right off 694 that has been mentioned on the splendid table and by Andrew Zimmerman (on his talk show not Bazzar Foods!). grin Every time I have driven by it has been closed but one of these days I'll make it.

He does have a good talk show and Bazzar Foods is pretty fun to watch as well!!

i watch that show all the time and have never seen any of these on there. Huh? I will have to check some of them out.

They where on some of the first episodes. All of them have been on one time with the exception of Psycho Suzi's which has been on twice.

Tried to make it to Dari-ette twice this weekend with no luck!

Suzi's been on there twice because of all the tattoos. Other places let's see Mickey's Diner, Matt's Bar, Rooster's, Scott Ja-Mama's or Ted Cook's you have to focus more on the dives here since there isn't much for diners or drive-in's. I will have to think about this one now thanks a lot grin

I've been to mickey's a couple of times and although its fun to go because of the history, I haven't left thinking to myself that was really good! Don't get me wrong, it has good food, great history, and fun atmosphere. I just don't know if it is really good?

"Matt's Bar, Rooster's, Scott Ja-Mama's or Ted Cook's", are those in Minnesota?

Matt's Bar has a world class juicy lucy the original before the nook. It's a little tagboard menu with mostly the best burgers a true dive bar menu. Rooster's is right off Randolph in St. Paul try the pulled pork phenomenal, Scott Ja-Mama's and Ted Cook's are both in Minneapolis and have great barbecue. Just look at Matt's Menu and you will know it's a dive. Matt's menu

Scott Ja-Mama's is good stuff. I go there every once in awhile for lunch. You gotta get there by 11 or so if you want to eat at one of their 2 tables. You can't beat a huge bbq beef sandwich, slaw, twice baked potato, chips and a coke for $6 bones.

Well I have not heard it mentioned on the show but there is a great old fashion drive in in St Louis Park called Wagners. It is just off hwy 7 and about Quebec ave. They actually hang the tray on the window or you can sit at one of many picnic tables. If you like old fashion drive inn's this is the place.

A dive/diner that I have not seen mentioned is "Our Kitchen" just off 36th street and bryant ave in South Minneapolis. It is very small with mainly counter seating. I have been eating there for over 30 years. The man that origionaly opened it died about 15 years ago but his grandson Dan who has worked there since he could see over the counter has owned and ran it ever since. Fridays they serve a full HOMEMADE Turkey dinner. Hmmmmm Get there early though because they sell out. Good Eating!!

Made it to the Dari-ette for lunch today. The boys had the corn dogs (money! grin) and I gave the spaghetti and meatballs a chance and washed it down with a vanilla coke. The meatballs where just like grandma used to make, seriously! I'll be back for sure!! I think the best thing that I saw on the menu was a soft serve cone with crunch coat! Who has crunch coat anymore? Thats probably one of my favorite childhood treats!!

    • For gills when using live bait st croix spring bobber rods. for gills and crappie when using plastics I use the snitch. for perch and eyes croxton pond rods in light to med/light  
    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye. 
    • Minnesota, Merica, and the World commie boy!
    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
