      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 .

A mushroom

Recommended Posts

I took a walk looking for some fall colors. It seems to be spotty in the Detroit Lakes area. The only picture I liked was this mushroom.

Nicely done. Do you know what those are called? I believe "Survivor Man" ate one of those once, albeit nervously.

Nice image, LeeKen. They are called bishop's caps or shaggy manes. We just gathered a bunch on Sunday and sauteed them in some red wine and butter and drizzled the blend over medium-rare New York strips.

Ahhhhhhhhh, that's some good eatin!

That one is just past prime for eating. They're best when the caps are still tight on the bottom against the stalk and not black.

Stu, it's one of only two mushrooms I can say with authority are edible. We only pick shaggy manes and morels. There are some wonderfully edible shrooms out there, but so many of them have deadly lookalikes that we don't have the guts to experiment.

Sorry for the off-topic, LeeKen, on your nice image.

Steve, thanks to your first response, my wife is sending me on a shaggy mane mission.

Well if I'm being forced to spend time in the field, I guess I'll go. Thanks for the info. I'll let you know how the dinner goes.

Nice image Lee!.....Steve certainly is right on the Shaggy Mane.....It's one of those mushrooms that doesn't have a "lookalike" in the poisonous category....lot of others do!....They are linked to the "inky cap" family and turn black and "melt" on maturing...I picked grocery bags of shaggy manes in my younger years and they certainly are for some great eating!...I chose to pick them just breaking through the soil at the "button" stage...large ones are good to however...Some believe it's one of the best tasting!...I think so too!...great sliced and fried in butter along with onions and the juices from a nice sirloin! grin

So what kind of mushroom is this one? Found it in north central Wisconsin (Holcombe). Lots of wind and moisture hitting that front yard. There were tons of shrooms, but this one sure stuck out of the bunch.

Here is the same shaggy mane, one day later. It has a little brother, which became an addition to dinner. Very tasty!

I brought a small container to carry out the booty, but I ended up using my hat for the bounty.

You can learn something everyday on this forum.

Thanks everyone.

Ahhh, that little brother was prime for picking!

Mushroom containers should be mesh of some type, not plastic bags, just as an FYI. Putting shrooms in plastic grocery bags will degrade them in a matter of hours, sometimes minutes, while mesh bags allow air to circulate and keep them fresh. Not to mention, the spores in the picked mushrooms can be released from mesh, but not through plastic, and this year's spores produce next year's mushrooms.

We put those shaggy manes we picked Sunday in my baseball hat to carry home. Guess a Twins cap is good for only one thing now. frownfrown

LeeKen, that's a nice image showing the old and the new. grin

    • Has anybody found this particular color of rattl'n flyer recently, i am down to my last 2 and i havent been able to find them in pushing 2 years.    
    • Good deal! Did you leave the ice coned up to help keep a seal?
    • Update: took the shack out this weekend had reflectix and fans blowing in the holes and they stayed open in the -20 windchills 
    •   I also saw a picture with Blair Walsh's face on Marcus Williams as he is missing the tackle.........wide left. 
    • Copied from FB:   A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2018 Super Bowl, both box seats. He paid $2,500 each but he didn't realize last year when he bought them, it was going to be on the same day as his wedding. If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place...It's at St Christopher’s Church, in Edina, Minnesota, at 3pm. Her name is Samantha, she's 5'4", about 145 lbs, good cook too.....She'll be the one in the white dress.
      (Feel free to copy and paste, to keep the laughter going!)
    • The saints player was probably running to where the ball should have been thrown. That throw was 2 yards onto the field, should have been closer to the sideline. It would have been a pretty easy tackle to keep him in bounds and the game is over.. Nothing wrong with a little luck on our side. I thought the refs were terrible all game. Lots of questionable and no calls. That last no call when Theilen got mugged was ridiculous...
    • It was about time something like this happen to a MN team. I will take the luck and the win. This game was not the big game. I've seen us win and lose many divisional games. I have never seen us win an NFC Chip game 76" I was too young for that to count. This weekend i might get all giddy and happy if we win but I sure don't want the let downs anymore     Go the SB win or lose I will be happy to see it at least once
    • I think I'm still in shock that it worked out the way it did. It was a typical Vikings playoff roller coaster that for once ended on a good note. The icing on top is that it was the saints that it happened against.    It sucks that the next game will be in the cold at the eagles but of the 3 other teams left, I'd pick the eagles to play against especially without Wentz.
