      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 .

Bummer Glen, mine is on the way out. He is in and out of the hospital. 4 days in 2 days out and repeat the process again. This has been going on for a few months. He is a tough old bird.

My parents celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary on May 9. My dad passed away on June 22 this year. Even though he spent the past two years in a nursing home with Alzheimers slowly taking him, he remembered their anniversary. I sure do miss him too.

Lost my dad four years ago. His funeral visitation was on his 70th birthday. Still miss hearing his Ole and Lena jokes and his puns. I lived three hours away after I got married, but I talked to him at least once a week.

My Dad's 85 and he's sinking faster and faster it seems. His ongoing battle with the dreaded C compounded by a bout of pneumonia this summer has prevented him from wetting a line. He's feeling almost good enough to chase down them Red River walleyes this fall which is really the only thing that keeps him going. Fishing is definitely in his blood.

This last Saturday would have been my Dad's birthday. I wanted to go out fishing but the weather did not cooperate. Fishing was one of those times that my Dad and I got along all the time no matter what happend. I do miss those days. The thing that keeps me going is that he is up there catching lunkers any time he wants to.

Hope

My dad passed away in 1998, all alone in a nursing home. I found out online at the Social Security Death Index. He told the people at the nursing home that he didn't want any of us notified, some friend of his made all the arrangements. Too bad Dad, you really don't know what you missed.

Today is the anniversary of my father's death 9 years ago. How strange to finally get on FM after a few days of school/work craziness and this thread is up here. He had lung cancer and was very sick. Sometimes it's a blessing to let them go.

I hope it all turns out well for you and your family Glenn. I hate the cancer word. Nothing worse then that. Been through it too often with my family. Luckily my imediate family has pulled through thus far but it's taken a lot of my aunts and uncles. It's never fun. Luckily in MN we have some of the best in the world. If you can make a trip to the Mayo, they are great at what they do down there.

Yeah... cancer... took my grandmother and grandfather (two different side of family) within 2 weeks... grandmother died after a very LONG battle with this rare cancer on August 5th... then two weeks later, my grandfather died from stomach cancer only a week after doctors found it... to make things worse... they both died right before my senior year in HS was to start... sure was lonely not seeing my grandfather (he didnt miss any of my home games) at my football games... but we all know he had the best seat and best of all it was free grin

Hope things will look up for your family...

thanks everyone, like i stated earlier still waiting for cancer specialist appt. at this point it appears to be cancer need to more testing. to my surpise my wife and dad in law have positive attitudes. to everyone that has responded that also has dealt with family with cancer my thoughts and heart also go out to you, that cancer is a nasty thing to deal with. there is hope, i was a stianless steel welder for 28 years and one of our customers we built tanks for was genetech and the vessels we were building for them was for a drug called avastin, it prolonged the life of colon cancer patience and they told us there thoughts were this drug or a derivative of it someday would take out cancer.

    • I know they drum quite a bit in the spring but I've been hearing drumming this fall. I'm not hearing as many as I do in the spring. But I'm sure hearing a good number of them drum  Are they  searching for a mate in the fall?
    • I was out 2 weeks ago around Duluth and saw a smaller buck either a 6 or small 8 pointer chasing a doe.  She wanted nothing to do with him.  I'll be back out this Sunday and Monday hoping to see a bit more activity. 
    • Thanks Hoey.  At that price I think I will just go with the foam board insulation.  It's such a small area left to insulate and that way I can avoid the mess and the headaches.  Plus I will be able to get it a full 2-3/4" thick throughout. My next project I think may be to replace the dinette table with a jackknife couch.  Any idea how long those come?  The longest I've seen so far is 72" which to me sounds too short for me to sleep on comfortably since I'm over 6' tall.  Does anyone carry bigger sizes, or do most people build them so they sleep with their head on the armrests?
    • They make mounts where the TV sits out a little further and you can mount a couple smaller appliances to the mount behind the TV with straps.  Not an option for some as the TV may stick out a few more inches but worth considering if you don't want a separate cabinet. 
    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
