      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 .

I went out last nite about 10:30 and covered the tomatoes with sheets and tarps,then this morning sprayed em with water before the sun came out. Time will tell if it did any good. There was heavy frost on the wife's car windshield. Yep--that time of year so hopefully now we'll have another month of decent weather.

What kind of water temps are you guys getting up in Becker County? I grew up 5 minutes north of middle & big cormorant lakes and am planning on getting up there to visit my parents in late Sept. Also, hows the fishing?

The lakes down here around the mankato area have been dropping about a solid degree almost everyday this last week! depending on your location and how much sun is out there. it goes up and down 2-4 degrees during the day when i'm out but that also is including different locations on the lake.

It said 42 in the car on the way to work this morning here in Fargo. It would be kind of nice to get a couple goos frosts before the bow opener to take care of some of the skeeters.

I was fishing on Sunday on a lake near Duluth. Water was still 64 degrees, but the bite was good. The big fall seasonal bite is just around the corner.

Global warming is one of the worst naming conventions ever used to describe a real environmental issue. Even climate change is still a bad term. The reality is that levels of carbon dioxide are increasing and its attributed to the burning of fossil fuels and the deforestation of the planet.

Rather than mocking science that suggests destroying forests is bad, I suggest you wikipedia carbon dioxide and learn a few of the facts. There is still a lot of debate about what will happen to the planet, but less debate about the reality that carbon in the atmosphere has increased by 35% since 1960.

I personally am uncertain about the impacts, but I find the science to be credible. Fairly global glacial melt is also a reality, but my wife and I were in BC fishing last year and the mountains had snow very late into the year, so year to year may not necessarily be indicative of global warming, but we did see greatly diminished glaciers in other places.

Scientifically speaking, fish are extremely susceptible to increases in carbon dioxide. It is my understanding that the oceans work as carbon sinks and this increases acidity and we all know what acids do to lakes. Again, not sure the extent of the impacts.

Personally, I'm hoping we all have electric cars (okay I'd like a pickup) in the next 30 years and none of us care a [PoorWordUsage] bit about burning fossil fuels from the Saudis, but my reasons are more patriotic than scientific.

    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
    • Smurf hope all goes well with the pooch. Definitely tough to see them as they age my 9 year old lab is getting pretty greyfaced. Started looking for another up and comer to start the training process again . 
    • Green lake Spicer if ice is off. The governer's opener this year will be in the Willmar area. 
    • Fibertech productions replica's Brainerd. Have a walleye done by them excellent work!
    • Was wondering if anybody has a fiberglass mount of a Largemouth that they would like to post pics of? It's now been 15 years since I caught my biggest bass (22 1/4"), and I've come to the conclusion that I will probably not top it. So I'm interested in finally putting one up on the wall.   I'm guessing I would probably go with Artistic Anglers, but would love to hear if anybody has any other suggestions. Thanks!
    • Has there been any announcements what the governor will be doing for fishing opener yet? Does he still honor the tradition but head to the southern part of the state?
    • We need warm windy days to get things really going.  I'm guessing the in-laws lake 20 minutes north of Deer River will still have ice floating around on opener.    On this day in 2010 I had already returned from a Bdub canoeing and camping trip. That year and this year seem to be two extremes.  
    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
