      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 .

People like the couple I photographed today remind me why I love to shoot weddings so much. Laid back, totally cool couple, big anglers. Him in his tux and her in her wedding dress, I got them out into the musky boat and they cast lures toward me for some of the pics. Would've been wild to have a toothy critter explode on one of those topwaters at boatside. What a shot that would have made. shocked

Gotta love those outdoors couples! She even kicked his butt walleye fishing on Vermilion the other day. gringrin

Ken, looked like you had great sunny skies for football this afternoon. Cool to see you're working with VCC now, too. Hope that honey-do list went well, too. gringrin

Still thinkin about Hawk Ridge next Sunday?

Thanks, all. Steve, I get a little VCC work once in awhile, some on spec, some asked for. This was a game I was asked to be at (and actually paid for!).

For those of you who don't know, this is kind of where I started with my photography a few years ago, and where I spend a lot of my time now:




Canon 1D Mark II, 300L 2.8 + 1.4 converter. ISO 800 Tv priority at 1/1600 f/7.1 - f/8.0

Steve, I'll be in touch about mid-week on Hawk Ridge. Supposed to fly sometime this week after work, but if it doesn't work out, next Sunday is the back-up.

Third shot has all the ingredients of a great sports photo! Great group of shots. Tv huh? With the exception of panning situations or bike racing, airplane propeller shots I can't recall ever shooting anything sports related in Tv! It sure worked well for you.

I don't shoot in Tv much, but I was playing with some stuff in the second half, and that's where I was when I took these shots. Seems to work for me if I've got some room for light changes (here I was up to f/10 at times)and back ground is not as important to me.

    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?

    • You don't get a smoke ring like that with liquid smoke either 
    • Yup, the bike sold and they guy seems pretty happy with the purchase. The only reason it was parked we think because it had a bent back rim. He had torn it all apart and put it back together and currently has it running. 
    • Camper is winterized for the season. 
    • As far as an app to keep him from getting lost, you could try the Polaris Ride Command app. It is a really good trail map and I believe you can download the maps for the areas you ride in so it will still work even if you don't have cell signal.
    • I don't know much about it but maybe satellite tracking might be an option?,loc:1&gclid=CjwKCAjw4KvPBRBeEiwAIqCB-U1B1VDAZZB5771da4q6PQrP_nm5K5-fi29AOxs0i6bnAO3O3wWVWxoC6R4QAvD_BwE I would think you would be out of range quickly on an ATV in the Chippewa National Forest.
