      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 .

Annadale Forum Get Together

Recommended Posts

FM’ers

I would like to welcome everyone to the 2008 Annandale Forum Get-Together that is going to be held on July 27th, on Clearwater Lake. Its going to be a time for everyone to come out and learn new fishing tactics, and get to have a great time meeting everyone. This is FREE…so I hope that everyone can come and enjoy a day on the water with other FM’ers

How its going to work is we are all going to meet at the Landing by 7:00 am, and we are going to fish until 11:30. Then we are going to meet at a place that we talk about at the landing in the morning, and just hang out and talk about how everyone is fishing, what they have caught, and how they are getting bites. This can be for all different types of fish, just don’t have to be one type, anyone can come and fish whatever.

After that, if you are still in the fishing mood, you can go out and use the new tactics that others have shared on how they have got there fishing and what they were doing to get them, or you can simply go home. Others can go out with others as well if you would like to get to know one another or learn something that you just don’t understand or whatever the case might be.

The best part about it is not getting the most fish, or getting the biggest fish, but going out and meeting everyone from the Annandale area, and having a great time on the lake.

Myself, along with Rockman will be at the landing earlier to meet and talk about where we are going to meet at 11:30. If you any questions, or are interested in coming, please shoot myself a email. I will be on the water from sun up to sun down.

Hope to see you all there!!!!!!!!!!!

Tami - My husband is taking the boat to Canada tomorrow for a week. He won't have it back by Sunday. So I have no boat.

Good to know that I don't need a boat though. Bass N Spear, count me in. I have fished Clearwater, not well at all, about 4-5 times. Always good to learn more about it.

If there are additional details I need to know, shoot me an email. char_hanson at hotmail dot com

So...is it too early to start thinking of a Clearwater early ice GTG? 1st-2nd weekend in Dec? I know there's a lot of soft water left, but fall does have a way of slipping by...may I suggest straight out from BJ's 200 yds. Easy walk. Walleyes,northerns, panfish can all be had. Was a good time at the July GTG, but I think one on the ice would be great.

Dang Steve!! When do I get to go?? I'm for any and all get togethers, regardless of group size or water type. If it's hard water, somebody will have to be patient enough to teach me.

Dad and I went out to Spring Lake here in the metro on Sun. Caught a bunch of small white crappies....largest was 8 1/2" and most were around 6". We don't keep anything under 9". But we had a good time. We took his boat out...hadn't had it out since the first week of July.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18.
