      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 .

No Reb.......never saw her! Far as we know she is still hanging out on the spot, waiting for Pinky to come strolling by for a treat!

Better pack the extra clothes!

Yes we moved fish, didn't even look at the water temp. Just threw the lures where Jonesi told me to throw them!!

I've seen that fish, the 56. Steve showed me when I was out with him and the following day I saw her 5-6 times lounging with 4-5 other muskies on a tiny weedpatch. Stupid big.

Rinc... I dont know how big she is... Steve keeps telling me hes gonna put me on the famous "SHE" that he always talks about... also telling me this n that about how much he hopes I'll get my first 55 incher...

10K... yeah Steve guided a customer to a PIG... 56.6x25 late July on Mille Lacs...

Bret... Oct 14th, not 16th... Thanks for the tips... Its just the mystique of Mille Lacs... it'll all turn on for no reason at all sooner or later...

On a side note... Hit French earlier today with no luck... it was a dead sea... unusual for me on French at this time of the year... hit all those spots that brought me luck last year but ZIP... water was SOOOO green looked like we could walk on it... but at least I got some practice in preparing for the Oct 14th Marathon... Sad thing is that I had a 7000iC3 replaced couple weeks ago... and that replacement crapped out on me tonite... *sigh*

Daiwa saltist is a 6.4:1 and is coming out with a levelwind, that might be worth waiting for.

the 700TE is awesome same price as the trinidad, but its got a levelwind, having both Reb, I love my levelwinds its quite nice, but once you get used to not having it its ok.

good luck

the jury is still out on Diawa... few has said that it doesnt cast too well... so I dont know...

as far as choices go... Im thinking about Trinidad/Torium 14, Daiwa Saltist (both levelwind and convential), Okuma Red Isis, and Shimano Calcutta 400/700TE...

I need to see Daiwa and Okuma in person before I'll decide...

Thanks!!!

Are complete sentences and the entire word that hard to type? Life in text is kind of a PITA to read...

that's actually pretty good. i have two brothers that aren't quite stone deaf, 1 is 80% both and the other is 70/90% left to right, and they don't even do as well. and matty if i remember is stone deaf. just fine matty, i understood it just fine.

I wasn't aware of that, sorry ole matty.

How does that effect typing? I'm not being sarcastic, i'd seriously like to know how being deaf impedes the ability to read/write coherently. I would think that if you were deaf or hard of hearing you'd be better at it. Maybe i'm wrong.

"Deaf people can do anything, except hear."

I'm deaf myself. we can read and write just fine. I do type that way as well when I'm using my pager to communicate with others. There's nothing wrong with that....There's alot of hearing people out there who do type that way like we do....It has nothing to do with our deafness.

Just because we can't hear doesnt mean we can't read or write coherently.

Everyone INCLUDING hearing people do have flaws when it comes to reading or writing. NO ONE IS PERFECT at typing or reading...

as peachy stated deaf people can do anything.

although my bros.could have tried harder, lol. one thing that hurt their ability, according to their specialist when they were younger, is sign language. when speaking sign ''the bear went into the woods and scratched on a tree'' is broken down to something like this...''bear went to woods scratched tree''.

then after learning that sentence structure using sign they had a harder time writing out ''correct'' sentence structure. no not every deaf person falls into that. but i know a few who have. remember i'm talking strictly about who i know or have contact with. i'm certainly not an expert on the deaf community and any strides made over the years may have addressed this.

    • We had a tire blow out a few weeks ago while heading to Zumbro Falls so I just put 4 new tires on the camper last week. Decided to go with the new Goodyear Endurance tires. I also packed all the bearings while I had the wheels off.  
    • Has anyone tried using a picnic basket? 
    • Last nites work. 13 qts stewed tomatoes, 5 pints juice and 15 pints salsa!
    • I'll second that!! Gotta get some more cob cawn today myself....
    • From the  picture it is a male yellow headed blackbird; IMO there is even a faint white bar on the wings which may be what you describe as "the ring on its back" and the black smudge under and behind the eye.  I can't tell about the bill, but on a cowbird the bill is quite heavy;  not nearly so stout on the YH blackbird. Immature male yellow headed black birds are not so bright yellow as the adults, and there should definitely be some young of the year fledged by this time of the year.   If the picture is not accurate then we will need a better photo to do better than that.  IMO This picture does not show a brown headed cowbird.  Most cell phones will take a better picture and if it is tame enough please post another or even better a couple more.  The more different poses the better. Yellow headed blackbirds are almost invariably connected to swampy areas, especially those with cattail fringes.  They also tend to be around in groups, especially groups nesting in the same swamp not mixed in with red winged black birds.   The females of both species are quite drab, and quite distinct from those of the cowbirds.
    • I do live by a river and have lots of RWBB, maybe it will yellow up. That's a very distinct rusty brown ring on it's back though, I didn't see that in any of the YHBB pictures.
    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
