      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 .

Larry's Lost anchor

Recommended Posts

Larry's Lost Anchor:

LarrysLostAnchor8-6-08.jpg

I've been meaning to post this picture for some time now. You had to be there to appreciate the Kodak moment. On the 6th of August Larry Haugh invited me out to the Minnesota River for a flathead trip. This was my first trip to the Minnesota River and Larry was a great guide.

We were running up the river and he was giving me the nickel tour and as we approached this creek mouth on the north side of the river, Larry casually mentioned that he lost an anchor there during high water. He was telling me how it got hung up on some drowned timber and he couldn't get it loose. He pointed out where he was anchored and how high the water was at the time. As we cruised by he said, my anchor should be right about there and he pointed a finger at the mud. Well, low and behold - there was the very tip of his anchor sticking out of the mud. He coasted the boat up onto the mud at the creek mouth, takes off his shoes, and slips and slides his way up to his anchor. He had a heck of a time digging it out of the mud but I managed to capture his moment of triumph as he hoists his prize anchor into the air.

If you ever get the chance to handle one of Larry's anchors bring along a back brace. Those things are killers. Hey Larry - I forgot to tell you at the time "Congratulations on getting your anchor back".

I know of one other member that has stripped down to his skinnies to go "anchor diving"....a little digging in the older posts should provide evidence.

    • I have this recipe more or less going in the crock pot at home right now. Just used cubed ham, no liquid smoke, and canned beans instead of soaking dry ones. A bit concerned the beans will be mushy, but all the online comments said they wouldn't be. We'll see.
    • Yup. Pour ingredients in bag with souse-o-matic; come back in one week. Enjoy while eating close to bathroom. 
    • Relax don't poop a truffle!  Pictures just help give better idea of all your wonderful cooking.
    • Do you have a Swiss Verde version of that recipe for Del?   Looks delish and a great idea for those hocks I have in the freezer.
    • Just the thing for those cold, windy days....my bean soup. I like to have some ciabatta's with melted swiss on top as an accompaniment.                  Bean ‘n Ham Soup                                                                                   1 16 oz bag of Navy or Great Northern beans 3 smoked ham hocks plus ham trimmings/chunks, about 2 cups, or you can use 2 thin-cut cooked and smoked ham steaks, cubed, in place of the trimmings 1 tsp salt ½ tsp Basil or 2 Basil leaves ¼ tsp Rosemary 6-8 peppercorns 2 Qts (8 cups) water 1 very large onion, medium chop 2-3 ribs of celery, diced small, about 1 full cup 1-2 large chopped carrots, (I use baby carrots),  about 1 full cup 8-10  drops (bit under 1/8 tsp)  of liquid smoke Veggies should equal 2 full cups PLUS ½ onion. Soak beans overnight in 2 qts. of water, then drain. I like to soak them 6-7 hours, too long and they get too "mushy" when cooking. Combine first 7 items, except the cubed ham steak, and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer covered for 2 hrs, stirring occasionally. Take out hocks and Basil leaves; remove and return to soup any meat from bones. Stir in onion, celery, carrots , cubed ham, liquid smoke, and continue simmering, covered, for 45 mns - 1 hr. or until beans and veggies are tender. Remove cover and let soup thicken as desired. I like mine thick. Remember, it will thicken as it sits. It also freezes well, this gives ya a large bowl to eat and 4-5  one and a half cup containers to freeze.

    • No pic rules that I know of....this IS the food thread, also used for posting recipes. Not everyone posts pics. I usually do, a lot of others don't. Was riffling thru my recipes and decided to post that one for others enjoyment...but it seems there's always some negative blathering on this site, isn't there?
    • Never been a fan of the the vexilars they all give me a headache. LX7 over the LX6 just because its got a bigger screen.
    • yea i was waiting for that comment!!!!!!!!! only i expected it from leech!!!!!!!!!!
