      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 love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye.

    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
