      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 .

Hi All

Then headed to Ely - but took all back roads . Went up from the cabin to the edge of the BWCA and then then headed west and inland. Was a terriffic time. We where able to kayak a few lakes. Caught 3 eyes, total not enough to feed a 5 yr old crazy

Got to Ely Monday Night. We have a friend who is the Excutive Director of Camp Widgi, which is on the far north end of the North Arm of Burntside Lk. We stayed in the Directors cabin Monday through Thurs night. I fished Burntside a few days, caught quite a few rock bass, but couldn't get the eyes to bite.

Donna and I also paddled a few other lakes. Same story, rock bass and smallies but no eyes. I wasn't fishing real serious these days, we where just out enjoying the day and the great outdoors grin

Tami,

Just so happens that my family and I were having dinner two tables over from your group. We were there for Mom's 60th B-day. Good eats and a terrific sunset!

Which day did you golf Fortune Bay? My dad, two brothers and I played on July 4th.

Didn't do any fishing though. Too many work projects at the cabin. mad

Wellesy

Wellesy - to bad we had no idea what each other looks like, its always fun to chat with other FMers.

We played Fortune Bay on Sat. it was beautiful, a great course. And the Legends Sun morning.

Isn't Burntside Lodge wonderful? Where is your cabin ?

I too spent the weekend in Ely. My little girl and I stayed at Wanderer's place with him and Sue. First trip to Ely for the fourth. They sure do a great job with the weekend. Best parade I have seen in years and the fire works were great as well.

Glad to see you had a good time as well. Your pictures are great. Sorry to piggy back on your post. wink

Question... Where did everyone go??? The town was packed on the fourth, but the lakes were empty. Found that kind of strange.

    • interesting web site never spached  a turkey yet....   could be soon!! 
    • Lookin' good....spatchcock that beatch!!!     http://reeltym.blogspot.com/2013/11/the-ultimate-turkey-smoked-on-barbecue.html  
    • I just spent 8 days pheasant hunting in SD last week. Almost every walk in area, CREP area, some waterfowl production areas were cut. Why is that?
    • You wait 'til Delphonic whips you ragged and shows ya his soused-up IQ. But, we MUST remain on the bean soup topic. Mikey is trying to copy it down. I know he can cook it right. Must remain on topic.....
    • You must be as bright as the woman we sold a ham to one time years ago at the grocery store I worked at. She asked the owner of the store who also worked behind the meat counter how to prepare the ham. He told her to put a can of 7up in the bottom of the pan and put in the ham and roast it a 350 degrees for whatever length of time. She looked at him puzzled and said "how do you balance the ham up on top of the can of 7up?" We laughed about that one for years.... Good for you!
    • Copy and paste and put it in yer little Google "recipe box" like I do. Amazing what computers can do.  Other than that, I no longer gives a rat's azz anyway.
    • You do realize that was never the point, right? The problem was not so much that the threads get off topic but that the great recipes you guys were posting weren't being indexed and no one could ever get back to them and put them to use. This post is great and any time I ever want to make bean soup I can just do a search and find it easily. It gets harder when a bean soup recipe gets posted in a good morning thread or something like that. Just sayin".
    • Doesn't stay on the grate real well that way. 
    • Manburgers!!! The only way to cook meat....juicy, grilled burglars!  grill it, baby, grill it!!  
    • Maybe try simmering it over a charcoal bed with some chunks of apple or cherry for a 'real" smoke taste?
