      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 .

Me too Dietz...love watching the games.

Good luck to everyone representing the USA...especially Doug Schwab from Osage, IA in wrestling. There is not a more determined individual competing. I am certain of that! smile

I thought it was very good maybe not a $100,000,000 dollars good which is what they spent on the opening ceremony but VERY Good none the less.

Go USA!

I had heard the bill was $300 million.

Think of all the starving people that could be fed for $300 million!

Don't get me wrong...the opening ceremony was pretty cool....but dang.

For Dish customers the olympic coverage is on NBC, MSNBC, CNBC-HD, USA-HD, Oxygen, and Universal-HD.

There are also two special channels that are each dedicated to basketball and soccer (ch 365 & 367). They are in high definition too.

Two more special channels feature "Team USA" and athlete bios (ch 474 & 473).

Dish's interactive feature allows you to watch all six primary channels of Olympic coverage at once if you choose to do so.

I've already got olympic fatigue.

WOW. What a finish in the 4x100 Mens swimming. It looked like they were beat and they came back in the last 25 meters to beat the Frenchies. Obliterated the world record in the process.

your right dan,

talk about putting words back into the frech mouth. That was a great race, and im glad that they finished strong and beat up on the french.

Also nice to see Katie Hoof get the silver in the 400. She got tired at the end, thought she was going to take it home for the USA.

We have to have the highest medals so far if not going to be on top this year.

What sweet revenge. The frogs were talking smack about "smashing" the USA but like Toby Keith says, "We'll put a boot in your a$$ it's the American way". I think the frogs have a few Tony Lama's firmly wedged between their cheeks!

GO USA!

its was great to see them beat them last night.

I hope that phelps can get the record. You could tell last night that he was just hanging back and did just enough to get into the finals in the 200

I hate to admit it but last night was the first chance I had to sit down and watch the Olympics. I actually forgot they were on. Wow what awesome races. I had a hard time turning off the tube and going to bed. I'm sure I'll be checking in everynight from now on..

it doesnt get any better than to beat the frenchies after they talk smack. why on earth would anyone talk smack to ANY race Phelps is involved in? Just goes to show you that although the 4 frenchmen are good swimmers, they dont have much between the ears. prolly makes them more bouyant.

And even after getting their hats handed to them they still had that arrogant frog attitude! One of their guys in the race was quoted as saying that the .08 second finish was "just a fingertip" so it was not that big of a deal....ENJOY YOUR SILVER MEDAL, Froggie! we will do the same with our GOLD! I guess that was the "Gold Finger" eh?

GO USA!

    • I just read as of today, no lakes in Mn are ice free
    • I hit the woods yesterday morning and snuck into a little clearing and ended up being anout 50 yards from where they were roosting. They were very vocal and a few hens sounding off too. Soon as i started to call after they flew down the hens really got into it and accually pulled the toms to the west of me. I did get 1 to come in but only had like a 5-6 inch beard and 2 differnt groups of jakes so knowing there is around 20 toms in the flock of 80 or so i passed on him . Pretty hard to compete with that many hens. The snow is finaly starting to go so i think it will only get better. Heading out in the morning for a short hunt due to work.
    • Still on a roll heading into 2018 
    • Might have to as my garage up north is darn near full to. Sleds will be going into storage soon so that will free up a little space. Storage space is actually pretty cheap compared to building your own
    • Dang Walleye, dude you need to build a Toy barn out back to start holding all these toys! 
    • Thanks guys!  Excited to be back, and thankful for the late allowance!  I hit may 2 - 5th.  Bringing my boy on his first time out this weekend with a gun.  Looking froward to it all!  Good luck guys!!!
    • Will take a little bit to get used to but will spend less time mowing this year and more time doing fun things. If anyone is looking for and older cheaper riding mower I will have a couple of them for sale as soon as I get them out of storage next week. Ones a Craftsman and ones a Scotts. Both well maintained and good shape and will be in the 250 to 300 range.
    • Old Man Winter is refusing to loosen his grip on Wisconsin, dropping from a few inches to more than 2 feet of snow in across the state in a series of snowstorms in the last week. Crews from Pattison State Park and the Brule River State Forest continued to groom ski trails and reported good to excellent conditions. Other properties have put away grooming equipment but skiing was still fair on ungroomed trails through central and even southern Wisconsin. After another 15 inches of snow this week, ski trails were groomed April 17 at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase Thompson, DNRThe weather kept many fishermen inside this week, but warm weather this week should bring out lots of anglers. Walleye fishing was picking up on the Oconto, Peshtigo, Menominee and Wolf rivers prior to the snow, but then water temperatures dropped dramatically. There have still been hundreds of shore anglers and boaters out on the Fox River to catch a trophy walleye. Sturgeon are in the Wolf River, but with cold water it will be at least a week or longer before spawning will occur. This satellite image taken by NOAA about noon April 19 shows snow cover across almost all of WisconsinPhoto credit: NOAAMost Door County ramps and access points are blocked with snow. Before the storm fishing was fairly productive. Boats launching at Sturgeon Bay were trolling for browns. Steelhead fishing was good before the storm with numbers of fish showing up in creeks. .
