      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 .

I think Headofthelakes looks like the prefect spot...Tami...have you called them yet? Do any of our sponsors have places there that we should be supporting?

Of course I do!! That's why I had to avoid your pop up AT ALL COSTS. 5 cats in a house the size of a small cabin is just plain wrong. The health dept. would come and get me for sure. frown

Alright I'll call them when I get home. Hopefully that will work.

Midway Beach Resort and Campground is a sponsor.

that looks nice too......why don't you send them a note and see if they would match the rate we had for our last get together or what they would do for a group....it's worth asking.

Hopefully Wanda and I can at least make a day trip up there that weekend if you guys end up choosing Osakis. The gills are usually going pretty good with the potential for some real dandies in the 1 lb range and if a person would like to troll cranks in the evening the eyes should cooperate as well.

I usually put the boat in not too far away from the resort.

I sent an email to Idlewilde Resort this morning. Their HSOforum shows they have 3 tent sites available. I gave them the link to this topic as well.

Will we want to rent a boat or pontoon again?

We should start getting a list of names together so that we know how many of us there will be - especially for how much room we will need to set up camp.

So far it looks like we will have your boat and mine and Tami's yak. Unless we get a larger group, we should be okay. Unless the group decides they want to rent a toon for part of the day. I am in for sure.

Love the avatar Char!!!

I am in, I am open to anything rent or not, I just can't wait.

I spent the weekend with my middle niece and we got the apartment put together and had some fun in the pool. Hopefully I can get out fishing next weekend.

Hope

I'm interested in going but still need to verify a couple of things here. Do you camp Fri. or Sat.? or both? If I make it I can bring my boat. Its only a 14 ft(how big is the lake?) so probably 3 at the most but if its windy it may be tough to use at all. And then there's the other thing...I just got it and haven't actually handled it yet. Hopefully I'll have some more experience by then but someone who knows what they're doing should be in the boat.

I'll let you know if I can make it.

OK Ladies - this is the response that I received back from Idlewilde Resort regarding camping. I will contact them again later today and let them know we want the sites.

Hi Char,

Yes we have tent camping, we can put you all down in front by the lake, the cost is $30 per tent per night so with tax your looking at around $64 per tent for the weekend.

Thanks Susie

Right now that's eight of us. How many tents? As you know, my tent is quite large, and I can fit 3-4 comfortably. Sorry Teresa, no cats in my tent (allergies you know). We should figure out how that's gonna work.

Ill check to see if we can pull in a trailer down on the tent sites and let you all know.

OK everyone - I just talked to Susie up at Idlewilde.

We can bring in the trailers, but the sites on the lake only have one plug for electric. So she moved us to the designated camping area and booked us for three spots. It's not directly on the lake. Take a look at their HSOforum, resort layout.

They do not have a boat landing at the resort - it is about 4 blocks away. It costs $20.00 per day per boat to dock our boat there, because they get put up on a lift each night. Or we can just take the boats out each time. I don't mind doing that.

Woo Hoo !!!! I think we're getting there.

    • DC to AC converters work well on low AC current but takes a bit of DC battery current. Example a drip coffee maker uses 900 AC watts (7.5 amp) which draws 83 amps DC battery current. 15 AC amps draws 165 DC battery amps. (Based on 110 VAC & 12 VDC). Batteries die quickly converting to AC. https://www.batterystuff.com/kb/tools/ac-to-dc-amperage-conversion-run-through-an-inverter.html
    • Saturday I am going to be duck hunting and I always am excited for opening day!  I know I will get some shooting in but let's just hope the ducks are where I want them.
    • You know there are no guarantees that he signs here for less money. He certainly would have gotten more elsewhere after this season based on comparables. Who are the replacements for him? We have guys that may be a year or two removed from being a top 6 guy, but this buys us time. Worst case he slides down to 3rd or 4th line and one of our young guys still on an ELC elevates if his game drops. He could also be consistent with his last two seasons, a solid #2 center and allow the likes of Kunin and Ek to develop down the lineup.
    • Might find it in here...... https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/exhibits/butterfly-rainforest/id-guide/orange/  
    • Very nice photos eyeguy54.
    • Ya he comes home the 29th getting excited for pheasant going to take a trip out to sodak this year Ended up showing a guy from work who is a first time bow hunter a couple of my spots in Sherburne. Was going to walk kunkel after for grouse but it ended up getting too late so just went home. Was hoping for some good weather this weekend but doesn't look too good. Friday is a high of 90! no thanks Maybe I will get a morning sit in for deer hunting if the rain cooperates
    • anybody know what it is?
    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
