      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 .

Check Out My new Bully Partner

Recommended Posts

I was down stocking up on some more bullies last week and turned my head and found someone catchin bullies with me. I got a snap shot on my cell phone and went back to fishing. Looked over and he was gone. I caught a bully and went to put in my bucket and found he was messing with my crawler tub. Sure enough I scooted him away and went back to bully fishing.

The bullies where not jumping in the bucket, so I moved to another spot a couple hundred yards away. I was pulling in a bully when I caught something out of the corner of my eye. Sure enough I saw the little bugger right at my heals grin He must have followed me over lookiing for more bullies.

I was sitting on the lakeshore at night, catching me some bullies for later, and heard some rustling in the bushes about ten yards away. I shone my flashlight in that direction, and saw 8 pairs of beady little eyes looking at me and my bait, slowly creeping over to me.

I moved to a different spot. One raccoon, maybe two raccoons, I can deal with. Eight... that's a little different story.

Raccoons are cute...until they gnaw off your fingers.

I am still waiting to see a pretty possum up close and personal. I have seen plenty flattened like a pancake and one or two crossing the road way in front of me.

    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
    • Nice to see a few bird getting knocked down. Good job to those successful so far!  Are you guys out A season seeing a lot of responses to calls or decoys? 
    • good luck Zach!
    • Congrats featherslayer. Very nice bird! I got  a decent two year old this morning also. Twenty pounds eight ounces, nine inch beard, and five eigths inch spurs. The strut stopped for a couple of them today. Try to get a pic up later.
    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
