      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 .

Ate minnow with hook

Recommended Posts

On Saturday my lab ate a minnow that was still on the hook. It was a #6 hook so pretty small, with about 8 to 10 inches of line. Not showing any signs of problems just wondering if anyone else has ever had this experience. I am hoping she will just pass it with no problem. Any thought or concerns out there?

I would be very concerned if the hook gets caught anywhere on its way through. If it were my dog I would be at the vet immediately whether or not there are any signs of a problem...you can never be too careful, especially with a family member!

This isn't the time to save any money on

vet bills. Get him in there asap and get

him checked out. Be watchful when a dog is

in the boat. Mind love to eat minnows. Even

on the end of a hook!

Went in and talked with my vet yesterday, he said that most dogs will pass a hook (especially a small one) unless is gets caught on something. He suggested as long as her behavior, eating, drinking and [PoorWordUsage] are normal that most likely things are fine. Just need to keep an eye on her to make sure things are good.

Mine ate a smaller crappie jig with a waxworm on it last winter. I talked to my vet and was told the same thing, keep an eye on the dog and be sure she is [PoorWordUsage] and peeing and eating and drinking and acting normal, everything turned out fine for me. You could run in and spend the money on the xrays but I would just give it a few days and see how the dog acts, you'll know if something is not right.

Well my dog had a present for me on our walk last night. She passed the hook and the line!! I was relieved to see it and in the future will make sure whoever is fishing with me is careful with their hook and minnow.

    • 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!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
