      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 .

Mint,low click 20Ds selling on evilbay for anywhere from $200 on up? Many for around $300.

Talk about bang for the buck!

Still plenty of pros selling prints for big bucks from this body.

Amazing how a "tool" with so much potential can be had so cheap just due to "upgrades" and "improvements".

All that potential for the price of a point and shoot.

I see a new one for $500 on a Buy It Now, but the used ones I saw are up to at least $380, and still going. I just saw a refurbished 30D for $499 on a Buy It Now and a new one for just $699. I also just found a new 40D on a Buy It Now for just $789, but it comes from Taiwan.

Sold my 20D last week with lens and extras for $350 with recent CPS calibration. I figured that was about $50 under current prices. Selling another most likely in the next week and purchasing two others. Its a nice time to be buying and selling cameras.

Both my 20D and 30D did great work for me but with some of the improvements in the newer cameras it was finally time for me to do some upgrading. I'm still using an OLD technology Mark IIN but don't see any upgrading on that until maybe the Mark IV.

Manufacturers keep coming up with new improvements. Cameras are not much different than many technologies, they are nearly outdated by the time you get them home from the store!

Boy isn't that the truth. Just makes it better for folks who don't upgrade just because there's an upgrade, but only because it's needed.

I just picked up a mint 20D with low actuations last week in exchange for a photo excursion, put a used grip on it and now it's a great backup for almost no money out of pocket. Certainly over half my nature library was captured with my original 20D before I wore it out, and when I held this new one in my hands and tripped a burst and heard the loud slap of the ole 20D shutter, I felt a sense of nostalgia. gringrin

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
