      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 .

Aug 16th GTG

Recommended Posts

Hi gals

Looks like we're on for the next great womens GTG. Mark your calendars for Aug 16th.

All of you that couldn't make the first one, now is your chance to join the fun.

I've got a post in to all the Moderators in the state for a good centrally located panfish lake with a campground. When I get a few good possibilities I will through them out for comments.

Another idea may be Cutfoot Sioux. We could catch pannies there too. We could camp around there too.

I did some online checking and there are several Chippewa National Forest campgrounds with available spots open, just a thought.

I am game for either Farm Island or Cutfoot Sioux. I haven't fished either one.

I looked at the DNR HSOforum, and they stock Walleye fry each year in Farm Island, and the sizes surveyed looked like good eatin'.

I'm in, my boss better give me that Friday off after this week. I did not know that she was going to run an ad in one of the local job newspapers, the phone has just been crazy.

Hope

Farm Island slot limit: all walleyes between 17"-26" must be released. cry

Barb Cutfoot has the same slot limits but they do have some really nice campgrounds.If you can get a spot in the Deer lake site there is a lagoon that you can keep your boat in at night so if a storm comes up you will not have to load the boats.

Ok - check out

Lake Osakis.

headofthelakesresort dot com

and

Linwood Resort

I like Head of the Lakes Resort. But am open.

Is Lake Osakis good for everyone? Lisa I think you would have the longest drive.

I guess it would really help if we knew how many are coming and what everyone needs for accommodations. This is the one I found that offers a group site and group rates.

Two Mile Campground

I think the drive will be the longest for Lisa, Teresa and me. If anyone has any other suggestions I am open for all possibilities. Nothing will be like Appledoorns because of the hospitality of Paul and the fact we had the camping area to ourselves. One thing I noticed about the state campgrounds is alcohol is prohibited, and most of the sites available are first come first served not reservable. I think when we get to the reserving stage we should contact the various resorts and find out if they have an area where we can either get a group rate or at least all be together. A big group of my friends reserved some spaces at a campground and they ended up placing us all over the place. Wasn't much fun.

Muskybait, I certainly hope you can make this one too.

Osakis is a manageble drive, and I'd love to try the lake. I'm OK with any gathering place....I would welcome electrical for the pop up..but I also have a tent.

    • Starts Saturday....anybody going out?
    • If Stanley’s question is pointed at me:  I can’t tell ya anything yet.  I haven’t dug into mine any further.  It is the factory installed unit and would like to just replace what is broken but I find sometimes getting parts for DIY RV fixes can be obnoxiously tough.  I’ve done my electrical troubleshooting to the point of knowing it’s broken. I did learn something new about our 2016 wheelhouse the night before deer opener though:  There is a safety that won’t allow the heater to run while the trailer lights are hooked to the truck.   Took me a while to figure that out.  I read the manuals and didn’t see why it wouldn’t go into the ignition cycle so I called the dealer and got a little infuriated when the only comment I got was “Too tough to troubleshoot over the phone. Bring it in”.  Really? So I tore it out!  I found there was a rocker switch on the module and a wire that stated in order to perform a POT test, the coach needed to be disconnected.  So I disconnected the trailer lights, cycled the switch and the next try it worked just fine. Put everything back together and it hasn’t missed a beat.  I found my 15 amp trailer light fuse in the truck popped too. Seems like that was something that could’ve easily been mentioned over the phone.  
    • Fred has a "thing on the floor"...his feet, but no push buttons. Maybe Wilma has the push buttons....
    • Deer cart for sure. You can save some money and make your own game cart - https://catchthemeasy.com/build-dependable-game-cart/ Or, if you would rather just save time like myself then just buy one    
    • me thinks some one is having fun with push buttons!!
    • Feel free to explain how you keep food out of the danger zone while using sous vide when you are cooking at temperatures in the danger zone for many hours.   
    • I have a feeling PIYA is an acronym. Maybe it stands for Pain In Your A@@.
    • Yes and it sucks. Putting a pro view in Lp mode in shallow water means you are going to have a narrower cone. (Because LP mode is low power which is a 50% cut in power which less power equals narrower cone on a pro view)  To get a wide cone angle and sharp returns in shallow water is impossible with a pro view. To get a narrow cone in deep water if you need the gain up it is impoosible with a pro view. basicly the pro view cant do what a person wants. Which is a wide beam low gain/lp mode in shallow water and a narrow cone higher gain in deep water.
