      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 .

Elite XC Tonight!

Recommended Posts

Kimbo is so over rated. They have been throwing cupcakes at him so far. And now he gets beat in 14 seconds without landing a punch.

If he ever fought a REAL opponent he would be exposed in a heartbeat.

I was watching most of it tonight but didn't hear why Shamrock was scratched. Did they ever say why he bowed out?

In general I didn't think the fights were all the great tonight. For the most part Elite XC looks very much like second rate fighting.

I would kind of like to see Kimbo take on Brock Lessner. They are both pretty raw but I do not see Kimbo being able to handle the power of Lessner. Brock is only valunerable to more experienced guys right now. No one can out punch him or over power him. I just think that would be a fun fight to see.

You are right, Carano is one hot chick and she can through and take a punch! Kimbo needs alot more coaching and practice to make it in the ultimate fighting ring. Andrei Arlovski took on Roy "big country" Nelson, this fight was also an uneventfull fight.

Well, at least we now know that the Kimbo fights are not rigged like was wondering.... Wow, all it took was a jab to the chin while backing up and it was all over! I thought Kinbo could take a better punch than that.

The Curano fight was pretty good.

All in all I thought it was very entertaining and I really want to see the Elite XC make it.

I was really looking forward to seeing Kimbo pound Shamrock but oh well... The 13 sec stopage was pretty good too.

Yeah, Arlovski is a joke if you ask me.That's why the UFC dumped him, he has no "go" in his fights.He took on a fat man, and had a difficult time for awhile.Kimbo fought an ex UFC guy and look what happened to him!

Kimbo was mad the ref stopped it, but he was about 1 second away from Petruzelli being on top of him and beating him senseless. The ref was very right stopping the fight. For a couple seconds there, it looked like Slice didn't even know where he was.

I think its funny how everyone says brock is a bum and him and slice are on the same page but look at it this way, slice fought an older ufc guy and was destroyed, Brock fought a guy who was huge in japan and destroyed him, i think it shows that the ufc is pretty smart on passing on slice even though he was an easy money maker and went with a guy who can do both fight and bring in huge money

I like Lesnar, and I think he will do well in MMA. The only thing I think he needs to incorporate more is wrestling moves, and I am not talking WWE moves, either. He was national champion, and I think the right wrestling moves on the mat would bring about a ton of tapouts

    • Well you did say sometimes it's hard to get your point across with this group.
    • Well a few days ago we got hit hard by a good cold front and the temperatures plummeted down into the 50s here in Islamorada, FL.  We also had another reinforcing front back that one up, so things stayed chilly.   The water in the backcountry bays dropped into the high 50s as well in some portions.  Though a day after each front passed the winds laid down and gave way to some epic fishing.  Today I had Pam and Lars down from Arkansas and we fished deep in the everglades.  We got out early and were loaded up with some nice lively shrimp.  When the water temps drop this far, usually everything is pretty keyed in on shrimp - they don't want to work too hard for that meal and expend a lot of energy.  Working them very slowly on the bottom, really just letting them lay and twitching every so often, works wonders.  Once we got set up and the tide started moving in, it was game on.  Pam and Lars each landed well into the double digits on snook, and quite a few 'big girls' for us... fish in the 8 to 12 lb range.  Multiple double headers it was a blast!  We also had quite a few black drum and nice redfish too.  Very good to see the reds as they've been hard to find especially in the summer time, as much of their habitat has been beat up due to algae blooms and grass die off.  But in the winter they do show up in the 'winter time holes' along with their cousins the black drum, snook, and sheepshead.  We also saw several small tarpon rolling about.  I didn't have much hope that they would bite but knew it was a possibility.  We kept throwing in their direction, and soon Pam hooked and landed a nice 25 lb tarpon!  Not to be outdone, Lars got one about an hour after that.  Backcountry SLAMS for both anglers, wow!  We continued catching fish for several hours it was just epic, also got a few trout mixed in which we kept for dinner.  I don't particularly like killing our drum, especially the redfish, due to the lack of numbers... and snook are currently out of season and also more of a gamefish for us too.  On the way home we hit the gulf side to look for some triple tail.  It was so calm and those fish like to lay on the surface near the crab buoys, sunning themselves and waiting for an easy meal.  We saw quite a few but mostly little guys, though we caught several and got one that was big enough for dinner too at least.  Just a banner day out of Islamorada in December fishing.  I have the same crew again tomorrow and then several days open next week, come on down the fishing is great!

    • I’ve never been to Ahlman’s but by the looks of their page, yah, probably a great resource too. Boone’s is similar in respects to offerings and massive showroom layout but I don’t think they have the gunsmithing depth of Ahlman’s.
    • I actually enjoyed this. LOL  I used to dive a lot, but not as good as these did.
    • Didn't you smoke one before watching? 
    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
