      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 .

Mankato area bass tournaments?

Recommended Posts

why is there no "mankato" area tournaments ? I got a boat with a live well finally and the year i get it there is only a few tourneys that are less than a hour drive away. I believe the dnr or some regulations have tampered with the number of boats in a tourney . having to do with permits? we or comeone should set up bass tournaments around the mankato ares ( madison,washington,lura,francis,ect.) what happened to the thursday nighters?

I have been tossing around the idea of setting up a local circuit like this one for a few years. Gabby did a great job and that ended, this seemed like a really good circuit as well and now this is done or maybe done.....I would like to get one going. 30-40 boats on 4 or 5 local lakes with a TOC at the end of the year for the top teams.

If anyone has any input or would like to get on my soon to be formed mailing list for a great FULL season of fishing next year, contact me via e-mail at mbjohn220@msn.com

The word is there are 10-15 boats (at this time) showing up to fish anyway. 100 bucks to the kitty and we will move on from there.

    • Thanks for all the input .
    • We had deckover on our(similar texture to rhino) and then put in the coin.... Coin is a lot nicer imo because it seems to dry quicker.  Stretch it between the holes then when you screw the hole mounts down it holds the middle tight... little movement on the outsides but hasnt been terrible.
    • Fine line I guess, they did kneel but from what I read they didn't kneel during the anthem it was a symbolic gesture of unity before the anthem.  Either way who cares.  They have the right to kneel, you have the right to support them or be pissed off by them.  Personally I don't agree with the action but I respect the right to peaceful protest.

    • I do have an existing subscription at home, thus the $7/month for the tailgater sub. From my experience Direct and Dish both manually align/aim the same so should not matter.
    • Del thanks for the link. I had never heard of that before.  
    • The problem  with trying to smoke in a gas grill is that you cannot control the oxygen levels with dampers. These items tend to just get hotter until they are fully on fire. If you have grease build up in the Gasser, you have now just earned a timeout as the grill goes to the state of inferno with no control.  Putting them in a pouch with holes helps with oxygen levels, but if you want to smome it's best to have the right cooker.  The minion method works if you can control oxygen, and I do use it in my Weber smoker, otherwise it will be a blazing fire. I gave away my gassers years ago. If you light a chimney of charcoal for a charcoal cooker like the Weber kettle then go in and get your meat prepared, generally the charcoal is close to being ready by the time you get back out. Then you can use chunks of seasoned wood for flavor. 
    • Get any?  Off the 4 wheeler or out the window?
