      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 .

Helmet Reminder

Recommended Posts

Just a reminder to make sure you wear those helmets.

My 8 year old son was looking backwards yesterday and ran his wheeler smack dab into a parked van. He never looked forward until he had already hit it. I saw the whole thing and was screaming at him but he could not hear me.

Thankfully he is OK. He has a few bumps and bruises but over-all is fine. I can tell you though that the helmet he was wearing saved him from some severe injuries. I am sure that he would have had head injuries as well as knocked out teeth if not for the helmet.

I figure if this post makes even one person think twice about wearing a helmet when riding then it was well worth the time. Especially kids!

I can't expect to teach my son to wear his helmet if I don't wear one myself.

I wear one, so he;ll wear one. He even comments when he sees someone NOT wearing one! He's not impressed! smile

Just remember kids are kids. Adults do not have to wear a helmet. Nothing irritates me more than a little kid 'telling' an adult anything.

Dave, tell the little guy not to worry about it. That has happened to many people. smile

As evidenced by the increase in the average age of those involved in serious ATV accidents (50), maybe the kids should be telling more adults what to do while riding ATVs.

And yes it has happened to many people. Roofer and I know of one personally grin We know you watch the boards Dave. whistle Glad you're still riding.

Maybe I'll also have my nephew along to tell fishy that his jacket doesn't match his Sportsman.

    • I saw 2 during deer season, both were in 5-8 year old clear cut with heavy aspen re-growth.  
    • If it had been built using American Union labor, one of us red-blooded American's might actually want to buy it.....  
    • Unless you're walking now a days. The last I knew you had a Arctic cat too.
    • in the Elk River area from last Thursday to Sunday I saw one monster on the tail of a doe and my buddies hunting the area saw a few does get breed so I would say there is a chance. Also in the Crosslake are I saw a buck hanging with a doe while checking hunting areas
    • Like his snowmobile, he is a little slow. 
    • With muzzle loader season kicking off this weekend and reports of the rut being very slow thus far, what are opinions on how much if any of the rut is left?  This past weekend I saw two nice bucks dogging a  doe out in a field.  Went out and setup my ground blind and am still finding tons of new rubs in the woods.  Not much for scrapes, but with the ground being frozen like it is, didn't expect much.  I guessing there might still be a few does that have not come into heat or few that are in breeding mode now.  I am setup in the woods between bedding and a large picked cornfield, hoping to catch them on their way to eat, but hoping that maybe there is still enough of the rut left to keep a few big boys on their feet and moving?????????
    • she musta sous de boiled it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Canned beans? Hmmmmmm......might be real mushy, as they're already "cooked". Let us know.....
    • 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.
