      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 .

BASS Announced the 2009 & 2010 Elite Series Schedule today, No they are not coming to Minnesota but they will be coming to Iowa next's year. They were suppose to come to Iowa a few weeks ago but due to the rain and high water level they moved the tournament.

Also they Announced that there will be NO MORE Co-Anglers in the Elite Series. There will still be co-anglers in the opens and other bassmaster events. I'm not sure what to think of that. As a tournament angler and weekend fisherman i can see both sides to this. The biggest problem with this is cheating, thats why the co-angler were there in a since. BASS did say that they are going to have a ride along program for fans. So will see how that go!!!

BASS also Announced that there will be a NEW BASS Northern Open Series. This is great for our state (hoping it includes it) and will help anglers in the north country chase there dream of fishing at the top level.

Having an observer should eliminate the chance that cheating will occur.. Also, I would love to ride around as an observer with an elite pro. I may even prefer it over fishing as a co-angler. I think I would learn more by constantly being able to watch the pro fish every cast and really concentrate on how they approach things on the water different than the average angler.

At first I was disappointed in the announcement that there would be no more co-anglers, I was thinking about trying to get into one close to home here. But like Bob said, I think I would almost rather be an observer so I could focus on learning how the pros think and fish, rather than competing myself and mostly focusing on how I was fishing. I guess the pros are pumped to be fishing alone, and I can definitely see that as I'm sure that some get frustrated at times when a co-angler catches a monster from one of their spots they had prefished earlier.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
